Nick Faldo Watch

Luxury Swiss watch brand Jaermann & Stübi – is offering golf fans the ultimate wrist accessory – a new limited-edition range of watches crafted from the golf clubs used by Sir Nick Faldo at the Los Angeles Open in 1997, his last tournament win as a professional golfer.

Nick Faldo Watch from Golf ClubsThere are only 72 pieces available of the limited edition, Faldo Series 1 watch, which is priced at £18,200. In addition to the nostalgic element, which would appeal to all golf fans, the watch possesses some unique golfing functionality, patented by Jaermann & Stübi. This includes mechanisms for recording the strokes per hole and per round, and the ability to compare scores against handicap. The sophisticated nature of the golf counter system can be compared to a mechanical chronograph with movement protected from impact by an in-built shock absorber.

The Faldo Series range comes on the back of a limited edition run of 50 watches, forged from the irons of the late and great Seve Ballesteros, which sold out within just a few weeks. The currently available Seve Ballesteros II model, priced at £14,700, is equipped with an automatic movement as well as course timer and GMT functions. Each watch is individually numbered and the iron used for the watch case is engraved on the back. A certificate signed by Seve also attests to the authenticity of the irons used.

The Jaermann & Stübi brand focuses on high-quality chronometers with additional functionality for golfers and is the official licensee of St Andrews Links, the home of golf. The St Andrews Links range of course timers starts at £5,200.

Entrance to Hotel K2If you’re thinking of taking a skiing break this Spring, then let us recommend the Hotel Le K2 & Spa.

K2 Dining Room

K2 Dining Room

Situated in the heart of Courchevel, France, the K2 opened in December 2011 and added a new layer of luxury to an already luxurious resort.

Fodors, the acclaimed travel guide, describes the hotel as having got ‘everything absolutely right’:- “From the moment you walk into the lobby you know this is going to be quite an experience” they write, “It will surely gain Palace status when it has been opened the stipulated three years that the top Palace category demands.”

But the best thing about the hotel is the attitude of the overwhelmingly friendly and helpful staff. This is not a hotel where you feel like a poor relation. The sense of welcome clearly comes from the top and the young couple who own Le K2.

Facilities

The 5-star hotel enjoys a unique location – in “Rue des Clarines”, a few steps from the centre of Courchevel.

The hotel comes with 29 rooms & suites and 5 independent chalets with private service. The 5-star hotel includes exceptional facilities such as a 550 m² spa – the Goji Spa, an overflow pool, two restaurants – the “Black Pyramid” and the “Kintessence”, the “8611” lounge bar, the “Winston Klub” smoking room , a high-tech fitness area, a hairdressing salon, two playrooms for kids and teenagers, a cinema, and a private night club.

The K2 five-star hotel was inspired by the origin of the hotel’s namesake, the Kilimandjaro, the world’s second highest mountain situated in the Himalayas and its famous K2 summit at 8,611 meters.

Skiing

The in-house ski rental is second to none and there are all the usual comforts like a ski pass collection service and ski storage with boot warmers. You can ski in and ski out from the hotel or from your chalet and somebody will pick up and take care of your equipment when you’ve left it outside.

An ideal choice of hotel and location for adventure seekers who want luxury at their fingertips.

Digital Set by Karl Lagerfeld

Digital Set by Karl Lagerfeld

Everyone knows Karl Lagerfeld as a visionary designer with a sharp eye in terms of fashion, photography and design.

But only a few know that he is also a keen collector of luxury craftsmanship, including the legendary objects created by S.T.Dupont.

USB Stick Open

USB Stick Open

And since everything Karl Lagerfeld touches instantly turns into gold, S.T.Dupont had the bright idea to ask him to design a new collection (they first collaborated in 2011). Thus, Karl Lagerfeld has combined his creative flair with the S.T.Dupont expertise and heritage to imagine the White & Matte-Black Collection.

This new collaboration takes the world of S.T.Dupont from paper into the digital era with a set inspired by mobile technology.  Ever at the leading edge, Karl Lagerfeld is one of the pioneers of digital fashion through his strong online presence. It seemed a matter of course for him to create a Digital Set using the different modes of contemporary communications.
The collection’s new optic-white or matte-black Dupont-lacquer finishes underscore one of the most recognisable black-and-white silhouettes in the world, Karl Lagerfeld’s own signature logo.

The digital set

Inspired by mobile technology, it is perfectly in line with the digital trend of the Karl Lagerfeld brand. Luminous white and matte-black finishes are set off by palladium trims and brilliant red agate gemstones on the clip. Inside the digital set, a matte-black lacquer pen combines a traditional ballpoint with a digital stylus, engraved at the tip with the KL silhouette. The set is completed by an 8 GB USB stick in white Dupont lacquer finish.

Sloane Helicopters

Sloane Helicopters

For those who want a little more excitement this summer – Sloane Helicopters has made the decision to base a four-seater Robinson R44 aircraft in Ibiza. 

Helicopter View of Ibiza

Helicopter View of Ibiza

Flying in and out of Ibiza Airport, the Company will offer heli-sightseeing trips and a platform for aerial photography.

Chief Pilot, Jonny Greenall, says, “We’ve enjoyed a fabulous 18 years in Mallorca but now we want to give Ibiza the attention it deserves.  There’s enormous appetite for helicopter sightseeing trips on this White Island and at Sloane Helicopters we anticipate a busy summer.”

Fast, manoeuvrable and stylish, the three-passenger-plus-pilot R44s can be flown in formation to handle half a dozen guests.

The R44 can skim low over the turquoise waters off Formentera, soar high over the mystical 380m high island of Es Vedra, skirt the ‘beautiful people’ hangouts of Cala Jondal and Playa d’en Bossa, survey pretty inland countryside villages and circle Ibiza’s stunning Old Town.

Sloane Helicopters is offering 30 minute and one hour tours from the private terminal at Ibiza Airport.  Prices are 499 euros and 799 euros respectively – and that’s for the whole trip, not per person, regardless of whether one, two or three passengers are onboard.

Barbour CoatWhen it comes to iconic fashion labels, Barbour are about as British as they come.

Since the first jacket was made by John Barbour in the 1800’s the brand has evolved to keep up with the changing times and fashions. Known best for the high quality Barbour Wax Jackets; there are now over 2000 products in the collection with the brand selling to an ever increasing audience now in its millions!

Long gone are the stereotypes of the “farmers market” wearers and sheep herders; Barbour’s target market has evolved over time just as its products have.  Just after the turn of the century, Barbour shifted its attention to the mainstream and its popularity has increased ever since.

They have developed a range of products that offers something for everyone without selling out on the quality; and as a result the perception of the Barbour brand has shifted.

Although not “high street fashion” Barbour has managed to increase its reach and claw into the mainstream fashionista’s, whist still maintaining its core market of the affluent country walker.

Barbour’s Product Range for Man about Town

Barbour’s product range is constantly growing and you can now have the whole family dressed from head to foot in Barbour (if you wanted to)!

By cleverly tweaking ranges and adding to their product lines they’ve created a collection of clothing that anyone would be happy to wear – more recently this has included younger people across a wider range of demographics.

Barbour have proved that; even in these times of hardship people know quality and will pay for quality. That’s why Barbour, without compromising its tradition or heritage will stand the test of time and why it’s successfully managed to transition its brand from the English country gent in to the man about town.

Smith and Morris have an online store that sell a wide range of Barbour clothing.
