15th anniversary edition top Marques Monaco

Live supercar show Top Marques Monaco is moving up a gear this year with a sensational line-up of vehicles confirmed for its 15th anniversary edition including brand-new supercars, rare classic cars and a million-dollar motorbike._______________This year’s Top Marques, being held from April 19th to 22nd, will mark the important milestone with a stunning showcase of some of the world’s most exclusive cars inside & outside the Grimaldi Forum, including an unprecedented number of test drives in Monaco. Organisers of the annual supercar show are keen to keep elements of this anniversary edition under wraps until the opening day, but yesterday revealed the following: 30+ supercars will be available for test drives on the F1 circuit including the brand new ZENVO, drivable for the first time during the show & high performance tuners by Moldavian customizing company ALANDI PERFORMANCEVisitors will be able to get up close to the MISSILE by CORBELLATI, being touted as the world’s fastest supercar with estimated top speed of 500 km/hFour world premieres, including an ultra lightweight hybrid hypercar with top speeds of 380 km/h by Slovenia supercar specialist Tushek & bespoke supercar from British newcomers BDI.Largest ever display of ‘green’ vehicles including a special edition electric sports car designed for H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco, the show’s patron  Private collection of classic cars once owned by the world’s most notorious statesmen in a specially designated area of more than 300 m2Extremely rare sighting of unique motorbike designed by Massimo Tamburini, mastermind behind Ducati known as the ‘Michelangelo of motos’Manoj Bairstow, managing director of Top Marques Monaco, said: “We are extremely delighted to bring you our 15th anniversary show, which we hope will be our best ever show yet. “The concept behind Top Marques was to create an exhibition which went beyond the static events of Paris, Frankfurt and Geneva, where visitors could actually test drive the vehicles that caught their eye. And Monaco, which hosts probably the most famous Grand Prix in the world, was the obvious venue for a live auto show with test drives taking place on the F1 circuit. “It’s fitting therefore that for our 15th anniversary show we will have more test drive cars available than ever before – the pit lanes will be lined with cars available for test drives including the new Zenvo, which can be seen in motion for the first time at the show." Visitors wanting to enjoy an extra special experience at Top Marques this year can take advantage of a new VIP pass, which offers test drive pit access as well as the chance to benefit from multiple refueling pit-stops in the VIP Lounge. There will also be a new Top Marques Restaurant, open to all visitors, which will offer first class dining in a discrete setting within the exhibition.The Missile by CORBELLATI : Possibly the Fastest Supercar in the WorldFamily jewellers Corbellati have swapped their bespoke bijoux for what is being billed as potentially the world’s fastest supercar - aptly named the Missile. This twin-turbo charged V8 hypercar with 1,800 horsepower is understood to have the capacity to reach 500 km/h (312 m/h).“The adventure began a few years ago, a little for fun and a little for passion, but in a short time, it became a serious and demanding project that absorbed all our energies,” a spokesman for the company said. “Our hard work has been rewarded: we will show to the world our car at Top Marques in Monaco.“Monaco is the emblem of luxury, and Top Marques is therefore the best event to show our Corbellati Missile."WORLD LAUNCH: TUSHEK TS900 H, a hybrid hypercar like no otherTeam Tushek, founded by Slovenian racing driver Aljoša Tushek, will be unveiling its’ latest supercar at Top Marques: the all new Tushek TS 900 H, a hybrid hypercar weighing just 1400 kg but with 950 horserpower. Acceleration is brutal as it gets from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds, while top speed is limited to 380 km/h.A spokesman for the company said: “It is in a league of its own as it is the only hypercar currently in existence weighing under 1400 kilograms. Our team has crafted an incredible machine, which feels alive on the straights as well as in the corners. It offers an exclusive driving experience, matched by no other hypercar out there.“We are proud to reveal our brand new hypercar to the world for the first time at the 15th anniversary of Top Marques in Monaco.” Latest supercar from ZENVO will be available for TEST DRIVEThe 15th anniversary edition of Top Marques will see more cars than ever available for test drive on the famous Grand Prix F1 circuit. In excess of 30 supercars and luxury vehicles will be lined up in the Pits outside the Grimaldi Forum, including the latest supercar from Danish designers Zenvo.Very little is currently known about the new supercar apart from a trio of teasers released last month by the company which describes the new model as a crossover between the TS1 GT car, which can also be seen at Top Marques on the Zenvo stand,  and its racetrack-bred sibling, the TSR. Only five cars will be built annually.The supercar will be launched at Geneva Motor Show next month, but only available to drive at Top Marques.  A spokesman for Zenvo said: “Changing the ubiquitous ‘booth’ culture that surrounds the industry, Top Marques combines the values that defines Zenvo: showcasing unrivalled design with an engaging experience.” Brand-new supercar by British designers BDIBritish design and development company BDI has handpicked Top Marques as the podium on which to launch its brand-new supercar the “Enigma”, being billed as a ‘world beating supercar with more torque than the Bugatti Chiron.’The hybrid supercar, which has electric front wheel drive and petrol rear wheel drive, has 2150 NM of torque – some 550NM of torque more than the Bugatti Chiron – and top speeds of 290 km/h (180m/h).Phil Bevan, CEO and Founder of BDI, said: “The Enigma has more torque than the Bugatti Chiron, it’s quicker on acceleration because the 550 NM of torque at 4400 rpm is supplemented with two electric hub motors driving the front wheels that contribute a further 1600 NM of torque.”The hybrid supercar can also go 50km on electric power – meaning 0 emissions. “Top Marques Monaco is the perfect platform to launch our new supercar and we can’t wait until April. We’re big fans of Top Marques and it makes perfect sense to unveil our supercar in Monaco,” said Mr Bevan.RADICAL RXC Returns to Monaco for Test DrivesOne of the most popular supercars to have appeared in the Top Marques pits in recent years is the Radical RXC – which we are thrilled to announce will be returning to celebrate our 15th anniversary with us. The fastest street-legal sports car will be available for test drives to customers who reserve directly with the manufacturer.The Radical RXC has 650 horsepower and weighs just 1130kg - with a top speed of 290 km/h (180 m/h) ensuring that visitors who venture in the car for a test drive will be in for an exhilarating ride.A spokesman for the company said: “A place amongst the nicest car paradise in the world, Monaco and Top Marques Monaco are the place to be if you want to talk the international language of sports and racing cars to enthusiasts.

Guest Blog: The Roth family's Iceland experience

Jacqueline Roth shares her family’s experience staying in Iceland through THIRDHOME‘s Travel & Concierge Curated Journeys. THIS PAST CHRISTMAS, MY FAMILY AND I EMBARKED ON OUR FIRST TRIP TO ICELAND. With only five days to hit all the major sites around Reykjavik and the southern coast, every day was packed with excursions set up by Liz Bates and the Travel & Concierge Department. She connected us with two amazing guides from Superjeep Iceland tours. Our guides would pick us up at our villa each morning and our day of adventure would begin. Iceland only has about 4-5 hours of sunlight during the winter, so our days needed to be meticulously planned to get to our first destination at sunrise and end our day with a beautiful sunset. Some of the highlights of our trip included ATV-ing through the mountains, soaking in the blue lagoon, hiking on top of glaciers, and visiting a number of amazing natural wonders. We conquered a lot over our stay, including the famous Golden Circle Tour, Ice Tunnels in Langjökull Glacier, Gullfoss Waterfall, and watching the sunset on the black sand beaches on the southern coast.  At night we explored and dined in downtown Reykjavik. We tasted the traditional Icelandic cuisine like whale and puffin, went ice skating in the town center, and even sang karaoke with the locals. Our trip ended on a high note as we were fortunate enough to see the Northern Lights from our villa, a sight we will never forget! Thank you, Liz and THIRDHOME for helping us create yet another amazing vacation!  Jacqueline and her family have traveled with THIRDHOME since 2011. You can also read about their experience at Camdeboo Manor in South Africa or learn more about the Roth’s travel lifestyle with Alan Roth’s Member Spotlight.  Want an Iceland experience like the Roth's?  List your property with THIRDHOME!

MAJESTIC LUXURIOUS VILLA IN ROQUEBRUNE CAP MARTIN

With the elegant and never-present background of one of the most beautiful landscapes in France, composed of the Côte d'Azur, the Jardins Biovès and the Château Médieval de Roquebrune stands this beautiful and luxurious villa. It gives emotions starting from the entrance: on a natural background composed of living stone, flowers, steep rocks and TEK, in an extremely modern setting that knows how to maintain the true French style, this is a prelude to the wonderful natural area of 6.800 m2 that this marvelous structure offers. You immediately enjoy the panoramic sea view that allows you to look at Monaco. The modern living space is 700 m2 perfect for any occasion, full of beauty and style, but is not enough: terraces and roof terrace are equal to another 600m2, ideal for enjoying the view, the pool and, who knows, even some parties! 5 bedrooms, suite bathrooms, open spaces and super-modern kitchens with full equipment! But this is the least I can tell you about this creature. Words are not enough to describe the emotion of such a welcoming work of art located in the Alpes-Maritimes department of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. But what I can tell you is: do not be afraid to organize the parties I spoke to you, the garages include at least 4 cars, plus if you buy it I suspect that the rest of the friends come on a Yacht!

A white man serving a black star

It is February 1953. Germany, Seven and a half years after WWII. In the lobby of the Atlantic Hotel in Hamburg Norman Granz, promoter of the successful Jazz at the Philharmonic concerts, is meeting with his stars of the sold out Hamburg Jazz at the Philharmonic evening at the Ernst Merck Halle. For the first time Ella Fitzgerald is performing in Europe, together with ‘the white Charly Parker’ Flip Philips, Lester Young, Oscar Peterson, drummer Gene Krupa and Ray Brown on bass.Young female photographer Susanne Schapowalow, who made this photo, started taking pictures at jazz concerts after she was introduced to the jazz scene by musician and jazz radio show host Olaf Hudtwalker in 1948. She fell for the music and she fell for the musicians. As a professional photographer for German magazines, shooting cover photos portraying famous politicians, scientists and artists, she knew how to work with stars. But Susanne Schapowalow felt that something new was afoot and wanted to hear the new jazz music and be as close as possible to the musicians. With her Dior-like look she couldn’t be overlooked by the black musicians that visited Germany after the war thus making it possible for her to become friends with some of them and enter the dressing rooms and hotel rooms. Ulla Fröhling describes Susanne’s entrance into the world of jazz breathtakingly in her foreword in the book Sophotocated Lady.So, in February 1953, Duke Ellington, Eartha Kitt, Louis Armstrong, to name a few, all knew Susanne Schapowalow. They were used to the sophisticated female German photographer. Probably Susanne Schapowalow wasn’t aware of the fact that this photo she took in the lobby of the Atlantic Hotel was very special. She just made a portrait of the promoter and his artists. And she made it for personal use only - never were her jazz photographs published until 2009. Now we can conclude that the fact that Ella Fitzgerald, being a black female coming from a 100% segregated USA, is served here by a white waiter makes this a historical shot. That puts an extra quality to this already special portrait.5 prints of the limited edition of 10 were sold in Germany after Susanne Schapowalow's grandson Felix discovered the secret music archives of his grandmother in 2009 and organized a show in Berlin. One of these prints can be seen in the Ellington Hotel in Berlin that bought 110 different prints when they came to the market. We sold the signed 6/10 to a collector in Southern France. Maybe 7/10 is still available in Germany with Susanne Schapowalow's daughter. We think the numbers 8 to 10 have never been printed. For collectors interested we can check with the family...

Estate Verwolde, enjoying Dutch Luxury and nature

A city trip to Amsterdam, Rotterdam or Utrecht is a highlight of our little county, but if you want to explore a different side of the Netherlands, the countryside might surprise you. In the Provence of Gelderland there are many castles and estates surrounded by beautiful forests. One of them is the authentic estate of Verwolde, where quietness and singing birds is all you hear, celebrating your holiday in a romantic carriage house of Buitenleven Vakanties.   Text: Angelique van Os | Photography: Henk Bothof You can wander there without getting lost. By bike, walking or on horseback. You do not even have to go far from the estate and its castle, because Verwolde and the Oranjewoud, which lies on the other side of the Markeloseweg, are equipped with various horseriding and walking paths that run through the forest and along surrounding meadows. Herds of horses, cows and sheep adorn the landscape. And when you go past the Moesgaard, at the end of the road, the T-junction to the right, you are surrounded by meters high cornfields that show off in the summer months in the sky. Furthermore, the typical nineteenth-century houses with the recognizable black-yellow shutters are sometimes beautifully hidden against the lee of the forest. For a long time there were sixty houses that fell under the estate, now there are still about fifteen. Great coach houseIn the heart of the estate that covers about 400 hectares, lies the stately mansion annex castle, dating back to 1776. A stone's throw away from this, completely sheltered by trees and high bushes, you can find the beautiful spacious coach house that was built in 1890. Since 2016 the Stichting Geldersch Landschap and Kastelen, Staatsbosbeheer and Buitenleven Vakanties are taken care of the coach house and it serves as a holiday home. When we close the gate behind us and park the car, a sea of ??beautiful blooming bedding flowers and plants comes to meet us. The house is surrounded by greenery and behind the house you have a 'mini-forest' with wide views for you alone. Inside, it is just such a party, because in the large kitchen, the old hayracks, water bowls and stable fences have been preserved and incorporated in the modern, sleek design. The imposing dining table with space for up to twelve people, invites you to dine extensively and play games in bad weather. It forms a tasteful, quirky whole. Through the hallway we reach the other side of the house, where the living room is located. Even so great, with multiple seating areas of classic interior. We miss a bit of coziness, because the furniture in terms of size actually falls away in space. The wood-burning stove does a great job, however, the worn-out bridles on the wall revive old times and the folding garden doors take the forest inside.The three bedrooms on the upper floor cover the entire coach house, so there is plenty of room; which is also very pleasant with children. The double rooms each have their own (pour) shower and toilet, and the master bedroom even has a tempting freestanding white bath. When you open the bathroom window in the morning, all you hear is birds singing and the swings of the trees. For lovers there is also a sauna with separate shower available on the landing. Family Van der BorchAround the country and coach house there is a canal, where a riding trail runs along the outside. It is quite possible that during a walk you will meet Bella van der Borch with one of her horses. The eldest daughter of baron Allard Philip Reinier van der Borch (1926-2008) has been living at the estate till she was eighteen. Her family relatives lived in the house for two hundred years (1777-1977). She is from the sixth generation. In the living room of the coach house hangs a family photo. The little boy sitting on the ground is her father. After several wanderings, Bella returned to her roots and cultural heritage a few years ago; she lives a stone's throw from Verwolde and makes an outdoor ride almost every day.In addition to two cousins ??and aunts, Bella's younger sister, Julie, can also be found on the estate. Together they lease a part of the agricultural land and associated houses to dairy farms. Since 2012, Julie runs and manages the Moesgaard and the associated tearoom, landscape store and flower garden. We meet her during the haying with a team of enthusiastic volunteers, the so-called 'forest men', who spend a lot of time in the maintenance of the estate. Every weekday, except Thursdays, there are volunteers at work who together maintain about 150 hectares of land. With a sweaty face, Julie stomps and rakes the gathered hay together on the cart, pulled by an antique simmering red tractor. When she has refreshed herself a little later, she tells about the work and background of her family. "My father renounced the house in 1976 and the grounds within the canal of the estate, because it was no longer workable in terms of maintenance and costs. I was twelve at the time. We moved to the Jagershuis, nearby. Later, after the death of my parents, I also lived there for a few years. For my parents it was quite difficult at first to leave the castle behind. I am very happy that I live here and see how well everything is maintained by Stichting Geldersch Landschap & Kastelen. And everyone can enjoy it. I find that very important, because it ensures a great commitment to the volunteers, as well as to the villagers and of course the day-trippers. There is always something to do. " Hard working baronessJulie van der Borch, like her brother and sister and his children, still has a noble title, but she only sees that as a formality. "When people know that I live here, they sometimes come to see the 'baroness' out of curiosity, but I do not really care about it," she says with a smile. The days when there are no volunteers on the floor, Julie runs the tearoom and estate store her self. With a lot of visitors, from hikers to castle visitors, that is sometimes quite challenging. "Sometimes I think, I have to find a 'real' job again, but I this is too much fun. And it is grateful work. Then I just have little free time." After closing timeDespite the great interest in the castle, especially during the summer when there are guided tours, you hardly notice that staying in the coach house. In fact, after five o’clock the fence is literally locked and you have the realm for yourself. That gives you a privileged feeling, because after closing time you can stroll in silence through the richly landscaped garden of the mansion, walking along the canal, over bridges, enjoying the special trees and the stately avenues. Sitting on the platform we can almost imagine the rich past of the Van der Borch family. In peace we return to the coach house, pull out a bottle of wine and settle us in front of the fireplace. Fully satisfied.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------HISTORYThe estate Verwolde was created through collaboration between the owner Frederik Willem van der Borch and architect Philip Schonck. The latter also worked for Stadholder Willem V. The castle is the first neoclassical house in Gelderland. Remarkable, especially for that time, is that the house was built in just nine months. During the construction period, the sleek, stately garden was also laid out, in which architect Schonck was also involved. In 1795 the landscaped garden was created, followed in 1926 by the current garden, designed by Hugo Poortman. The design by Poortman is clearly visible inspired by the geometric French style of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. In the garden there are pieces with a special 'tree path', consisting of a collection of pine trees (pinetum) of more than one hundred years old. Furthermore, there is a Judas tree, tulip tree, handkerchief tree and some specimens bear a special name such as Freedom, Equality and Brotherhood. These names refer to the French Revolution and were planted during the Batavian Republic. And of course just outside the gate in a clearing of the forest is the Dikke Boom van Verwolde, the thickest oak in the Netherlands, with a trunk circumference of 7.70 meters at a height of 1.30 meters. Finally, there is also an orangery on the estate that is a popular wedding and party location. Events such as music or art exhibitions are also organized. You can find more information about guided tours and the history of Estate Verwolde on the website of the Geldersch Landschap & Kastelen.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------For more info and bookings of the coach house Verwolde, look HERE If you are interested in more of our stories, check our website.

Member Spotlight: Dr. Charles Stoopack

Dr. Charles Stoopack, a clinical instructor at UC San Diego and a former practicing OBGYN, has a second home in Vail, Colorado. He combines his love for skiing and adventure with THIRDHOME ski properties across the globe. He also loves discovering new cultures and attending musical events in Vail. He highly recommends catching a George Balanchine ballet (either Swan Lake or Serenade) if you ever get the chance. Meet THIRDHOME member Dr. Charles Stoopack!How did you get involved with THIRDHOME?I saw an article in a travel section of the Sunday paper. This was back in the fall of 2014. It just sounded like such a unique concept. The article showed all these places you could go, and it looked amazing. What happened at that point, I either called or emailed THIRDHOME in October, and we had a couple of conversations and I ended up joining around Christmas.Where are you based?I’m based out of Carlsbad, California, which is North of San Diego. I grew up in New York and moved here when I was 25 for my residency at UC San Diego, and I just fell in love with the place.What do you do for a living?I originally practiced as an OBGYN. At this point in time, I’m a professor at UC San Diego. I used to be in clinical practice for 23 years, but I had to have some orthopedic surgeries and stopped practicing and transferred to education. It’s wonderful teaching. I’m doing a lot of good. You try to mold young physicians into caring doctors, try to teach them what we call the “Art of Medicine,” how to appropriately care for patients to make them feel valued. The gain as a physician is that your practice will be more fun and be rewarding if you have that sort of relationship with your patients.Who do you usually travel with?My wife and my daughters. Now they’re both engaged, so we’ve got two weddings coming up this year. We travel with other couples as well. The idea behind joining THIRDHOME was that the properties were large and we could bring groups of friends or family.What are your favorite travel hobbies?I like skiing. I also like beach holidays with a beautiful beach that has nice sand and warm water. I like traveling where it involves culture, fine dining and fine wining as well. Not like whining, but wining!In your past travels with THIRDHOME, what was your favorite destination and what did you love about it? I wrote down the whole list so I could think about it. I would say Barbados. We stayed in a 9 bedroom and 9 bathroom villa that was fully staffed. The whole experience was very spoiling. The staff felt like your family after a day or two. They prepared all the meals. We paid for food and staff, of course. We had access to a private beach club at Sandy Lane which is one of the premier beach clubs in the world. It’s where Tiger Woods got married. The whole thing, the island, the people the staff, the access to the beach, it was just wonderful. We brought 13 people with us, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The food was incredible. We’d come home from wherever we were and there would be pitchers of margaritas and hor d’oeuvres waiting for us. We’d be sitting at a long dining table and it felt like we were in an old fashion movie. It was just spectacular.What’s the next destination you are eyeing to travel to with THIRDHOME?I’m going to Kenya next, to two different THIRDHOME properties. We’re going to Hippo Point and then to Cottars Mara Private Homestead. They look incredible. There was only one week available at Cottars, and it’s our 30th wedding anniversary and after several weeks of talking with the owner, with the help of Liz Bates, THIRDHOME‘s Director of Travel and Concierge Services, the owner agreed to give us that week. We’re very excited! The other property [Hippo Point] was featured on the cover of Architectural Digest as well. It has a gorgeous tower. I recall reading that Brad and Angelina had stayed there once, too.What do you love most about your property with THIRDHOME?The skiing in Vail. It’s the best skiing mountain in North America because it’s not terribly cold (Whistler members would argue with that). You get sunny days, which is much different than Whistler, where it was very dark. Vail’s got the back bowls, which if you don’t ski are these large open areas, they call them the legendary back bowls. The condo is extremely well located. It’s about 5 minutes from the gondola, if you don’t want to walk to the bus stops out front too. Our building went under a $10 million remodel so everything is updated and upgraded. The location is wonderful, 3 nice bedrooms, and 1800 sq ft. It’s very spacious. You can go there with other couples or two families and not feel on top of each other. I used to bring our daughters along with their friends for ski trips. We still go every summer for the annual dance festival. Something that’s unique to Vail is the summers. There is a BRAVO music fest that goes through July for 6 weeks or more, then a dance fest, then a jazz fest around Labor Day. There are a lot of cultural experiences that are just delightful. During the day you can hike or golf, then at night, you go to the performances. These are world-class performances. The saying is that people go to Vail for the winter and then move there for the summers.Any personal/family achievements you’d like to share?Both of my daughters are engaged now so we have a busy year ahead of us. Their fiancés are great guys. We also have our 30th wedding anniversary coming up.How has THIRDHOME changed the way you travel?It allowed me to visit places that we probably would not have gone to and has allowed me to have accommodations for many people.Anything else you think members should know?I think the staff [of THIRDHOME] is wonderful. The concierge and member services are very helpful: Liz, Kristine, Amy Jo, Kelly. I hope I didn’t leave out anyone. I got a friend to join, and he booked a trip to San Juan Island. Actually, I’ve had two people that joined and two others thinking about it. And the Chairman’s Club, I’d thought about it for a while and when I finally did it, I loved it. It’s definitely worth it. Want to take your travel to the next level, like Dr. Stoopack?  List your property with THIRDHOME!

SIHH 2018 New Watches

SIHH 2018: All tSIHH 2018Every year the high echelons of the watch industry gather in Geneva for a week to unveil their new watch collections for the year to come. Stories start to slip out from about November – we’re gathering up every new watch launch from SIHH 2018 here, from mainstream chronographs to esoteric jewellery creations. MontBlancAs Montblanc marks what would have been the 160th anniversary of Minerva, it looks to conquer the middle ground with some handsome complicationsIntroduced in 2015, Montblanc’s 1858 collection has been rightly cooed over by journalists ever since. At its core is a design that’s as vintage-inspired as any on the market, executed better than most (lack of date window; old-school logo) with enough personality running through the range for it to stand out – think the Dual Time automatic, for instance Jeager-LeCoultreA brand new range of stainless steel sports and travel-oriented watches brings back the Polaris name and aims to revitalise Jaeger-LeCoultre’s fortunesthe Polaris collection, and if that sounds familiar to you, it’s because the name is not a new one for the brand. It originally adorned a line of Memovox alarm watches in the 1960s, badged either as Jaeger-LeCoultre or LeCoultre, for the US market – and has been revived once before already, when Jaeger-LeCoultre released a limited edition 768-piece run of a Polaris Memovox tribute in 2008. Ten years later, Polaris is back, and this time it covers more than alarms. Audemars PiguetFor SIHH 2018, Audemars Piguet has created the world’s thinnest self-winding perpetual calendar.When we write about ultra-thin watchmaking, we tend to focus on the outright record-setters. The watches – predominantly from Piaget, Bulgari and Jaeger-LeCoultre – which stake a claim to new ground, albeit often by tiny margins, in the simplest expression of mechanical watchmaking: thinnest mechanical watch, or thinnest automatic watch.There’s something fitting about that; the quest for ever slimmer movements and watches is bound up with simplicity, with the reduction of things to their most essential, so it feels right to be talking about watches concerned only with hours, minutes and maybe seconds.Similarly, when we talk about Audemars Piguet concept watches, we have an image that comes readily to mind. The “stormtrooper” type of Royal Oak Offshore models.IWCIWC gets its 150th anniversary celebrations underway early with two new Portugieser tourbillons.IWC is going all out for its 150 anniversary celebrations in 2018, announcing no fewer than 27 limited edition novelties across the Portugieser, Portofino, Da Vinci and Pilot’s collection to be announced as well as the Tribute to Pallweber Edition.Two of the more haute horlogerie offerings to wear the Jubilee Collection’s ‘150 years’ 18ct gold medallion sit within the Portugieser line; a perpetual calendar tourbillon and a constant force tourbillon.The Portugieser Constant-Force Tourbillon Edition ‘150 Years’ is a 46mm platinum watch (we’ll let you know just how heavy that is when we go hands on at SIHH in January) limited to just 15 pieces.IWC have employed a variation of its 94800 calibre (the 94805) which installs a second escapement between the escape wheel and the fourth wheel which winds a balance spring ensuring constant force is supplied. This movement has already graced IWC’s Ingenieur Constant Force Tourbillon and the Portugieser Siderale Scafusia, although this twin barrelled version boasts 96 hours of power reserve, double that of previous iterations. The tourbillon itself is visible through the dial beneath a very bold, open-worked, cross-shaped bridge.Complementing the platinum case is a white lacquered dial with blued hands, moon phase accurate to one day for 577.5 years.Each of the watches within the Jubilee Collection feature either white or blue dials, inspired not only by the look of the aforementioned Pallweber pocket watches but the imprinted dials and blued hands of the original 1939 Portugieser models. The Portugieser Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon Edition ‘150 Years’ also comes down on the side of white lacquer with blued hands.

Member Spotlight: MJ and Dee Jennings

MJ and Dee Jennings, Texas natives, have been members of THIRDHOME since 2011. In that time, they have racked up 31 trips. That’s a little over 5 trips a year! The Jennings family are true jet-setters. Get to know MJ and Dee Jennings, and how they travel with THIRDHOME, below. How did you get involved with THIRDHOME?I received a phone call from someone at THIRDHOME that was interested in my condo on Lake Travis in Austin TX in late 2011. Where are you based?Dallas, TX Who do you usually travel with?Husband, girlfriends, as well as brother and sisters family. What do you do for a living?Fundraising. What are your favorite travel hobbies?Exploring the area, active fitness activities, tasting the local foods, taking pics and walking everywhere I can. In your past travels with THIRDHOME, what was your favorite destination and what did you love about it?I just booked my 32nd trip. My favorite was a Malibu Beach home because it was insanely luxurious on Malibu Cove, a close second was Iceland as it was such an amazing adventure, and my repeat favorite is Turks and Caicos where I go as often as possible – the most beautiful beach in the world. What’s the next destination you are eyeing to travel to with THIRDHOME?I want to find a THIRDHOME to stay in South Africa before I venture off on a safari! What do you love most about your property with THIRDHOME?Every single guest takes care of it as if it was there own. In fact, because they are so pleasant it only wants me to make their stay so much more enjoyable. Any personal/family achievements you’d like to share?Because of THIRDHOME and the money we have saved, we splurge on adventure activities such as taking a helicopter to the top of a glacier and hiking the glacier tunnel, hiking the mountains of Malibu, swimming with sharks in Turks and Caicos, sliding down a mile long slide in Costa Rica, and even sent 2 family members on their honeymoons! How has THIRDHOME changed the way you travel?Completely! I always look online to see what I WOULD have paid for a THIRDHOME should I have actually paid more than a small exchange fee and some (or no) Keys. I am almost embarrassed to share, but I bet I am close to saving $200,000 since 2012. I plan a year in advance watching properties that I really want, or, if I have a free month I always take advantage of the 30-day Keyless properties. What is the nicest amenity you have encountered while staying at a THIRDHOME property?A 50-foot yacht in Miami for free. How would you describe THIRDHOME to a friend?For only $495, you can stay at a 2.5 million dollar home for a week anywhere in the world. All you have to do is give up one week at your second home. What’s the most memorable restaurant you’ve eaten at during one of your trips?Probably a local Icelandic one – a tiny little house with the most unbelievable fish soup I have ever tasted. Any travel tips for fellow members?Be active on the site, save your favorite properties so they pop up in your email when something comes available and check the site for the newest properties. What makes a THIRDHOME stay so special?The properties are hands down top of the notch luxury or if not, it is all about location, location, location! How is staying in a THIRDHOME different than other types of accommodations?For so many of the properties, the owners seem to always make sure we have everything we need – almost like a personal butler! Want to take your travel to the next level, like the Jennings family? List your property with THIRDHOME! As a Miljonet member, you can join for FREE without paying the USD$2,500 (£1,900/€2,100) Initiation Fee.

New car smell

New car smell You’re likely familiar with that exciting experience of shopping for a new car. While the process can become draining and stressful, there’s a deep sense of relief and satisfaction felt when you sit in your new car for the first time and smell the satisfying “new-car smell." What exactly is this “new-car smell" that we are all so familiar with? According to automakers, this aroma is essentially a mixture of volatile organic compounds such as rubber, plastic, leather and other chemicals that are used to assemble a car. These compounds release molecules into the air when they reach a certain boiling point, thus creating its aroma. What would be a new car without that new-car smell? Automakers respect the customers’ desire to have that new-car smell in their vehicle, so it is crafted and balanced to have an effect in the beginning of a purchase.According to experts, data shows that unfortunately 90% of the new-car smell dissipates after a month. People find the aroma of a new car so alluring that they often seek to mimic this smell even when the car is not new, or when the new-car smell begins to dissipate. Car makers are now trying to manipulate the new car smell, so that is it no longer just a nostalgic feeling that you once remembered.Air Aroma is doing just this by partnering with car dealerships to create their own signature scents to incorporate in their car showrooms, car shows, or cars themselves. A new-car smell represents the new, fresh and luxurious feel of the car. Through scent creation, Air Aroma helps car dealerships give clients the same feel of style and elegance when they enter the showroom or new car. Smell is one of the most powerful human senses, and through scenting an auto-show, car, or car showroom, a brand is creating the ultimate sales experience.Air Aroma has worked with some of the world’s biggest car brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Lincoln, Lexus and Nissan. Each signature scent represents the brand’s value, and what they are trying to communicate to clients. For example, Mazda worked closely with Air Aroma to create a warm and welcoming fragrance for clients to enjoy when entering their showroom. Warm characteristics in fragrance notes such as sandalwood have been found to have mental boosting, relaxing and calming qualities. While picking a new car can be a stressful process, incorporating a relaxing fragrance into a showroom can put one’s mind at ease. Nissan scents their motor shows with their fresh, fruity and herbal signature scent exclusively created by Air Aroma. According to Nissan’s Global Head of Marketing, their modern oriental fragrance has created a vibrant and exciting atmosphere for guests at their car shows. Other sweet, fruity scents such as cucumber and green apple have been found to invoke positivity. These uplifting qualities make finding a new car a more enjoyable experience. By scenting cars with a signature scent, brands are strengthening their emotional connection with their clients, thus enhancing customer responses when buying a car. Diffusing a signature scent into a car showroom, car show or the car itself creates a lasting feeling and experience for clients that will no longer fade away.

Snowboarding in Nagano !

Do you remember about OLYMPIC in winter in Japan ?Nagano Prefecture is the heart of mountainous central Honshu and home to the spectacular Northern Japan Alps. Nagano Prefecture has some world-class winter sports resorts within its boundaries, a number of which were used for the main events of the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics. Ski-jo can be found throughout most areas of the prefecture. The main regions are Hakuba and Otari, Shiga Kogen and the Nozawa Onsen area – all of which hosted Olympic events. They have 170 - 210 cm in Hakuba, Nagano. It takes a few months for deep-snowing at all ski ground. Anyhow, if you are snowboarder, I can support for you.

MA, Merzouga

Gallops of Morocco: M-3

In short, a festive and original adventure around the Barbe horse and Arab Barbe horse, staged in the magical desert of Merzouga from February 25th to March 4th 2018! In less than three months’ time, over a hundred horsemen from all over the world will be heading for the Moroccan desert, in the Drâa-Tafilalet region, amid the high and wild sand dunes of Merzouga, for a raid and adventure that resembles no other. Even though it will be physically hard for horses and riders, the track will be unforgettable for all, with the discovery of unknown and breathtaking landscapes, encounters and special moments with horseriders from all sorts of places and disciplines: upto 12 countries are represented so far! The adventure began a few months ago with route surveys and the preparation of logistics. It is an amazing human story for the organizers and participants, made possible with the implication of the Morrocan National Association of Equestrian Tourism and its parent company, the Moroccan Federation of Equestrian Sports. Through its partners organizations of the 2018 Gallops, two Moroccan teams will take part in this raid, which is not a race in itself, but a course that includes regularity tests over 200 kilometers, divided in 6 phases of 25-40 kilometers to be completed within an ideal timeframe. Alongside the Moroccan teams sponsored by the SOREC, other countries have already committed themselves, such as the Sultanate of Oman, representing its sponsor, the Royal Cavalry. Oman is the place where the adventure first began in 2014, with the first edition of the Gallops (of Oman) which marked all, filling the minds of participants with incredible visual and human memories. Alongside the host and founder nation, two other nations from the Gulf are represented: Kuwait and Qatar. The organizers also registered teams from Indonesia, America, Luxemburg, and Ireland. Naturally, France, which brought the highest number of participants in 2014, will take part with over 40 horsemen. The party spirit of the first edition will be rekindled in the forthcoming raid: it will sparkle every night in camp with great Moroccan gastronomy and parties will continue with traditional Moroccan shows and animations inspired from movies. Celebrations will be highlighted, namely with the unforgettable White Party under the desert stars and the adventure will end at the hotel Kasbah Xaluca at the desert’s gates. In short, a festive and original adventure around the Barbe horse and Arab Barbe horse, staged in the magical desert of Merzouga from February 25th to March 4th 2018!
