Tudor David Becham

New Tudor #BornToDare Spirit Embodied with Ambassador David Beckham

Tudor’s unveiled BornToDare campaign takes on a new, modern day twist. BornToDare goodwill ambassador David Beckham was recently photographed by renowned fashion photographer David Sims.

The new Tudor BornToDare campaign by David Sims depicts David Beckham in a raw, emotive and classy mood in keeping with the authenticity and unmistakable masculinity of the brand new Tudor BornToDare campaign. Also on offer are a series of intimate videos in which David Beckham, an avid watch collector and respected Tudor Ambassador, reflects deeply on times he embodied the spirit of Born To Dare! How did it all start? As far back as 1953, Tudor watches were tested by Rolex, to ensure their robustness. The tests were, and still, are performed under the harshest conditions. Thus, The Oyster Pearl was born.

David Beckham

The tests of endurance involve extreme conditions like exposing the timepiece to pneumatic drill vibrations for 30 hours and 252 hours of excavation by hand, as worn by a miner at work. The watch is subjected to a stonecutter for as long as 3 months. Additionally, it is worn for a whole month by a worker on riveting metal girders upon a building construction site. The watch is also worn by a motorbike racer for more than 1,000 miles, and a particular emphasis is placed on the massive strength of these Tudor watches, along with their exact precision, super-efficient winding and waterproof quality in extreme weather conditions. This is the spirit Tudor’s BornToDare embodies and David Beckham is the perfect example of that ethos. The BornToDare mindset portrays the rich history of Tudor and everything it stands for.

Tudor

Ever since 1954, when Tudor released the brand’s very first diver’s watch, aptly named the Oyster Prince Submariner, the brand has been steadily solidifying its reputation. The original, hand-built, tool-watch was designed to fulfil extreme criteria including durability, reliability, spot-on precision and 100% waterproofness, with a realistic and reasonable price tag. Today, Tudor watches are the instruments of first choice for professionals, elite soldiers and individuals who have achieved the seemingly impossible on land, ice, in the air or under the water, with a Tudor upon their wrists.

taste of diamonds

Taste of Diamonds: Most Expensive Champagne in 2018 $2.07 million

The most expensive bottle of bubbly champagne in the world is the 2013 Taste of Diamonds priced at $2.07 million a bottle. It is essentially a blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Grand Cru Chardonnay. The taste has touches of floral, is refreshing and it has a somewhat creamy texture with a light, yet elegant finish. The reason for such a hefty price tag is the bottle, no less. The logo has been handcrafted from 18-carat gold, accented by a brilliantly sparkling and flawless 19-carat white diamond. It replaces the Swarovski crystal that is customarily placed there on standard bottles.

The ornate bottle itself was handcrafted by Alexander Amosu, who also affixed the jewels onto the bottle by hand. It is a one of a kind creation, especially due to its gold logo and bright, dazzling diamond. The magnificent opulence of the bottle can be forgone for a standard bottle, minus the diamond and gold logo, priced at a mere $211! Nevertheless, the uniqueness and exclusivity of the container are alluring, and the value of the bottle will hold steady over the years, possibly even increasing in value.

There are those who will only be too willing to spend a substantial fortune investing in the heavenly bubbly. In France, the preparation and the lengths they go to in order to create the perfect bottle of bubbly starts right from the selection of the grapes, cultivation, ageing, pressing and right through to storage. The Champagne appellation is guarded jealously and kept close to the chest. The 2013 Taste of Diamonds is champagne at its very finest. Whichever bottle you opt to choose; the $211 one, or the $2.07 million bottle, the taste is the same. Consistently voted the best champagne in France, the quality of Taste of Diamonds is unmatchable.

Rolex Rainbow Daytona Everose 2018: US$95,000

The 2018 Rolex Rainbow Daytona is available in a stunningly beautiful shade of Everose Gold for the very first time! The opulent and ultra m-exclusive Rainbow Daytona chronograph was previously available in white or yellow gold. Rolex’s patented formula of gold blends perfectly with the precious, multi-coloured gemstones that take the place of regular Daytona hour markers.

Rolex Rainbow Daytona

Everose is Rolex’s proprietary blend of 18-Karat pink gold combining pure gold, copper, and platinum elements. The platinum content ensures the vibrancy of the gold never loses its warm hue even with exposure to the elements, and this is achieved by locking in the natural pink tint of the copper.

The Everose offers buyers a contemporary twist on an iconic and classic design which takes the creative opulence of the brand further than ever before. The timepiece is magnificently decorated with 56 brilliant-cut diamonds, and the face dial features eleven elongated sapphire hour markers. The chronograph counters are made of pink Gold Crystals, which match the Everose 18ct gold case creating a shimmering effect.

Rolex Rainbow Daytona

The 2018 Rolex Rainbow Daytona Everose oscillator utilises an exclusive paramagnetic alloy, which is insensitive to magnetic fields thereby providing excellent stability with extreme temperature variations. The Rainbow Daytona is a genuinely excellent Rolex chronometer that guarantees a rate of accuracy of between −2 /+2 seconds per day, which is more than twice an official chronometer.

Rolex has long been considered an opulent and luxury brand, and this latest addition does justice to the brand’s legacy. The level of workmanship and the exclusivity of the natural and rare materials used combine to come up with one of the most magnificent timepieces ever created. Rolex has done it again, keeping standards high and maintaining a stellar reputation.
