KINGSMAN: The Golden Circle & Tag Heuer forge a partnership

If James Bond had his array of devices that helped him get through his missions unscathed how can Gary Eggsy be far behind.

The clothing brand that was also associated with the first Kingsman movie MR PORTER and director Mr Matthew Vaughn have created a bespoke collection from Ms Arianne Phillips’ costume design for Kingsman.

In fact, MR PORTER has an online store for the brand Kingsman fans and a pop in store in London. https://www.mrporter.com/mens/designers/kingsman

While browsing through their merchandise I chanced upon a single watch related to the Kingsman Franchise.

It is then I came to know that the brand Tag Heuer had announced a global partnership with MARV films and 20th Century Fox in the upcoming new film Kingman: The Golden Circle, in cinemas worldwide on September 22, 2017.

In the new film, the Kingsman agents will all be fitted with TAG Heuer watches.

Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of TAG Heuer and Chairman of the Watch Division of LVMH Group, said: “Kingsman means explosions, action, laughter, and, of course, elegance. Its cast of young actors is the stuff of dreams – gentleman who aren’t afraid of anything. This is a perfect fit with TAG Heuer’s target market. This partnership will help us to get even closer to the younger generation.

Director Matthew Vaughn added: “For Kingsman: The Golden Circle, we needed a smart watch for our agents. We looked at the different options available, but none of them were elegant enough for a Kingsman. Then I saw an interview on Bloomberg TV with Jean-Claude Biver about his connected watch, and it became immediately obvious; the Kingsman agents would wear the TAG Heuer Connected.”

The watches worn by the characters play a decisive role in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, pivotal to the success of the Kingsman agents’ missions. They needed watches that could withstand anything, be it underwater shots, fight scenes or stunts. Film-goers will see the Kingsman agents wearing the TAG Heuer Connected and the legendary Monaco Calibre 11, worn by the American Statesman agents.

The Kingsman Special Edition reproduces the aesthetic adopted by the agents: pink gold lugs and an elegant leather strap with Kingsman print. The watch comes with a second strap in orange velvet, inspired by the iconic orange velvet suit.

The Connected Modular 45 Kingsman Special Edition differs from the classic collection with its dials function. Available in either midnight blue or grey, it bears the Kingsman inscription and logo at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock. At 10:10, the dial vibrates for 10 seconds and the K-shaped logo appears.

A Rocket to Watch

MB&F is a company that has no dearth of creative imagination and no lack of technology that transforms this creativity into reality.

The latest collaboration between L’Epée 1839 and MB&F brings us a desk clock which is maybe every child’s fantasy.

Destination Moon an eight-day table top clock.

MBandF-Destination-Moon-Clock-LEpee-1

It’s rocket shape design which cleverly displays hours and minutes on large stainless steel discs with stamped numerals. The horizontal plates perforated to look like Meccano components.

This rocket of time has an open movement and is structured vertically.

MBandF-Destination-Moon-Clock-LEpee-2

Complete with your own personal astronaut “Neil” who can be  magnetically attached to any point on the ladder depending whether he is about to take of on an exploratory mission in the universe where your time could be off by tens of thousands of years or returning to tell tales of the fantasy kind.

MBandF-Destination-Moon-Clock-LEpee-9

Costing around $20,000 this clock can enliven your childhood fantasies albeit you have to be Richie Rich to do so.

Floating in space with four limited editions of 50 pieces available in black, green, blue, or palladium this rocket can land only on few privileged desks.

When you visit Switzerland for the first time (first part in the series)

I was more excited than my 7-year-old son, it was my first visit to a destination I had only dreamt about.

I attribute all my desires and dreams to Yash Chopra for shooting his movies in the most exotic locales. I grew up on images of snow mountains with beautiful Indian actresses clad in flimsy chiffon sarees braving the cold. I was not romantic enough to try that though.

When the day arrived I was jittery and jumping at everything (remember have always been like that before a school picnic).

So when I finally reached my destination I was totally jet lagged and tired mostly from travelling alone with my son (who was very co-operative thankfully).

But all tiredness drained away when the girls (wives of my husband’s colleagues and two female colleagues) suggested we visit Triberg Waterfalls.

The adventure began at Basel station where we bought tickets for Triberg but noticed we were given tickets for Freiburg. After much confusion we realized the Swiss pronounce Triberg as Tree-Berg and not Tri-Berg.

Three trains later when we arrived at the quaint village station it seemed like I was still in a dream.

We hiked up to the entrance of the waterfalls in still a dreamy state. The area around the entrance to the waterfalls is reminiscent of a Fairyland.

The waterfall is the highest in Germany and has an overall drop of 163 metres over 7 cascades. We only managed to see the last cascade.

Ice-cream in the cold is an experience I have always enjoyed and browsing through the local shops selling tourists cuckoo clocks, wood carvings, souvenirs we wandered the streets just losing ourselves in the misty mysterious town. The countryside around Triberg is fascinating.

The Cuckoo clock museum is worth a visit and if you are a lover of souvenirs get a Cuckoo clock, it is one of those things that you will love for a very long time. These are high quality craft products and if you do not wish to carry it along with you for the rest of the trip the shops can arrange to ship it to your home so that you will find it right at your doorstep when you are back.

The trip covered various other places and I feel I cannot do justice to all the places in one post so I am going to do a series of posts.

So keep coming back for a peek into what goes on in a traveler’s mind when you visit Switzerland for the first time.
