fabergÉ visionnaire chronograph ceramic

Fabergé Watch Experience! Pick up your handcrafted timepiece at the Fabergé atelier in Switzerland. FABERGÉ VISIONNAIRE CHRONOGRAPH CERAMIC The stars, and the time they measure, have seen many stories start and end. Some stories end abruptly, others echo down the eons. To mark 100 years after the start of the Russian Revolution, Fabergé presents a chronograph of revolutionary significance in the horological cosmos, paying homage to the unfinished Constellation Egg of 1917. The Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph marks a new standard in charting time. Hours and minutes are read at the periphery of the watch dial while the chronograph function takes centre stage. The automatic calibre 6361, developed in partnership with Agenhor, offers a new intuitive chronograph display. It is a revolutionary new movement that imparts unprecedented clarity, precision and efficiency to the highly popular chronograph complication. It is the modern-day analogue to a Fabergé egg — a mechanical opus with wonder at its heart. Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph Ceramic timepiece features an opaline dial with TCI luminescent coating 15-minute indicators, sapphire with metallic treatment and applied numerals and hour indicators and an automatic chronograph movement of revolutionary significance, developed by Agenhor, encased in a 43mm black ceramic and titanium case, with alligator strap.

unique beatles original

A One Only Exclusive Sgt. Peppers Print On March 30 it is exactly 51 years ago that British photographer Michael Cooper had his photo shoot for the cover of the now legendary Beatles album Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. The album cover was praised praised widely and Cooper’s son presented some limited edition prints of the famous album cover photo in the Nineties of last century before Apple forbid the sales of these prints. We now offer an exclusive single print of the session with a very amazing story. Hardly anybody knows that Cooper’s first shot of the session caused some turmoil because a studio assistant placed the bass drum with the wrong side to the camera. The art director had two bass drum heads prepared with different Sgt. Peppers band logos. Cooper made the first shot, discovered the drum kit was placed with the wrong side in front. The kit was turned around and a discussion was started about the line-up. The photos taken after this interruption were like the image you can see on the album cover. After the session Michael Cooper made one print of the ‘wrong’ formation. After Michael’s suicide in 1973 his son was taking care of his legacy in the Nineties of last century. It was discovered that the negative of the first Sgt. Peppers shot was missing (and is still missing). The print we offer to Miljonet members is a one only print that comes with the embossed stamp of the Michael Cooper Collection and is probably printed in 1971. The print is taken from the now disappeared negative and has a size of 40 x 60 centimeters (15.75 x 23.6 inches). It is the only print in the world with George, Paul, John and Ringo and the bass drum in this formation. The price for this very rare print is € 7,850.00 Michael Cooper (1941–1973) was a British photographer who is remembered for his photographs of leading rock musicians of the 1960s and early 1970s, most notably the many photos he took of The Rolling Stones in the mid-1960s. His best known work is the cover photography for the 1967 LP Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles. Cooper also created the cover lenticular for the Rolling Stones 1967 LP Their Satanic Majesties Request. In 1964 Cooper met London art dealer Robert Fraser, through whom he was introduced to leading figures in music, art and literature, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones (the rock band he worked most closely with), Marianne Faithfull, Eric Clapton, artists Cecil Beaton, Andy Warhol, Jann Haworth, Peter Blake and David Hockney and writers William S. Burroughs, Jean Genet, Terry Southern and Allen Ginsberg. Cooper was one of those present at Keith Richards' house, "Redlands", in Sussex, when a party being held there was raided by police in the late afternoon of 12 February 1967, leading to drugs charges being laid against Richards, Mick Jagger and Robert Fraser.[3] Cooper committed suicide 1973, caught in a spiral of depression and heroin addiction.

the monaco grand prix

The Monaco Grand Prix is the one race of the year that every driver dreams of winning. Like the Indy 500 or Le Mans, it stands alone, almost distinct from the sport from which it was born. A combination of precision driving, technical excellence and sheer bravery is required to win in Monte Carlo, facets which highlight the differences between the great and the good in Formula One.

where to find successful family businesses?

Where in the world will you find the most successful family businesses? Behind a successful family business there is usually a story of hard work, dedication, inspiration and sacrifice. It may even be a tale of someone achieving great things against incredible odds. Certainly, the 500 largest family firms in the world today are towering examples of human endeavor – among them are household names such as Wal-Mart, Volkswagen, Ford and ALDI. Each year, the Center for Family Business at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland, in cooperation with EY’s Global Family Business Center of Excellence, compiles an index of the largest 500 family firms around the world. To qualify as a family business for the index, the family must control more than 50% of the voting rights in the case of a privately held firm, or 32% of the voting rights in the case of a publicly listed firm. The index offers some fascinating insights into the world’s largest family-owned businesses, in terms of where they are based, how much wealth they generate and how many people they employ. The US is home to more than a quarter (27.8%) of the businesses on the index – more than any other country – which may surprise those who see it as the land of publicly listed companies and unicorns, rather than a haven of sustainable, trans-generational businesses. Next on the list comes Germany, followed by France. These rankings reflect the strong culture of family-owned businesses in the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa (EMEIA) region, which hosts more than half (51%) of all firms on the index. Not unexpectedly, we have started to see the emerging markets make their presence felt. Asia-Pacific has 59 entries on the index in 2017, up from 52 in the last edition of the index. Furthermore, it boasts the fastest-growing family-run business in the world – automotive parts manufacturer Wanxiang Group Corporation – which racked up an impressive compound annual growth rate of 203.3% between 2012 and 2015. China Fortune Land Development Company also made the list of the world’s 10 fastest-growing family-run businesses. Yet despite China’s growing economic might, I don’t expect to see Chinese family-run businesses start to dominate the index in the near future. Succession limitations restrict the pool of people eligible to take over the running of a family business. Also, with second-generation family members more likely to be “global citizens” than the first generation, they may prefer to exit and become investors with their own wealth management vehicle instead of manage the business. By Marnix van Rij

baselworld 2018, a glimpse of what’s to come

The largest watch and jewellery event of the year will unveil the latest in timekeeping from hundreds of watch manufacturers from around the world, starting March 22. Before that, we have here a sneak peek at what you can look forward to  Set in the eponymous town of Basel in northern Switzerland, Baselworld is the watch and jewellery show that defines the landscape of the watch market for the rest of the year. And we’re not talking only about luxury watches or Swiss watches. Unlike the Salon International De La Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), which showcases only brands that are premium and higher up on the luxury scale, Baselworld is home to exhibitors from all segments and from around the world. Having said that, the range of brands at Baselworld from the luxury and prestige segments is as wide as you can imagine. From the prestigious Patek Philippe and the pioneering Breguet to the iconic Omega and the grand Rolex, the products showcased by the high-end names at the fair always baffle one and all.For the Baselworld 2018 edition, there have been a few pre-event announcements that have already got the conversation started. In fact, a few brands even had the buzz going on their 2018 releases before SIHH in January. Take a look at the announcements of new products that we are particularly looking forward to seeing at the fair. The Hublot Big Bang Unico Red Magic With Vibrant Ceramic  Hublot’s all about the ‘art of fusion’, and after creating their own gold alloys, hardened carbon fibre and leather-and-rubber fusions, this year, they’re all set to present some vibrant ceramic. Yes, ceramic in watches isn’t something new. It’s been used extensively by Rado, Chanel, Dior, Panerai, and even Hublot in the past. However, there haven’t quite been any drastic colour variations beyond blacks, whites and other neutral tones, barring some exceptions. Now though, Hublot’s research and development has led to ceramic in a rich, vibrant hue like red for the first time. And not just that; with extreme density, it’s even harder than conventional ceramic. Moreover, the watch we’ll see it in incorporates this material in every component of the case. The limited edition watch is in a 45mm case, housing a Unico HUB124 in-house movement, and features an open-worked display. The brand calls the vivid red the ‘first coloured ceramic’, which implies that there could be other rich hues as well. Won’t that be vibrant!  TAG Heuer’s New Partnership With Aston Martin And 55 Years Of The Carrera Every year, a few brands end up marking milestones of various kinds. This year, one of them will be TAG Heuer, celebrating 55 years of the Carrera collection. A major pillar for the brand, and a strong representation of its association with motorsports, the Carrera collection will see an evolution in this anniversary year, with the new Heuer 02 Calibre manufacture movement. The new calibre will be seen in four new Carrera chronograph models, each in a 43mm case, either in steel, rose gold or ceramic. The steel versions are either with a blue bezel and blue leather strap or with a black bezel and brown leather strap. The black ceramic version comes with a black ceramic bracelet, while the gold model has a black leather strap. All models have skeleton displays, with distinctive hour markers, hands and chronograph counters. A Never-Seen-Before Avatar Of The Breitling Navitimer Breitling is in a new set of hands this year, with a new CEO, Georges Kern – who was with IWC earlier – and a new creative director, Guy Bove. Everyone’s looking forward to seeing the first collection of Breitling under Kern. For now, the fresh perspective that Kern and Bove bring to the brand is already quite discernible, through the new edition Navitimer 8, a visibly distinct departure from the Navitimers we’ve seen so far. This sharp evolution of the collection comes in the form of a cleaner design for one of the most iconic series of aviation watches ever. The inner-bezel slide rule is gone, which instantly clears up the dial in a big way. So for those who found the Navitimer too cluttered, this is good news. he other significant development is the replacement of the hour markers with Arabic numerals – a simple change that gives it a more contemporary look. The numerals do bear a striking resemblance to those used by IWC on their Big Pilot watches. However, for those who liked the Navitimer as it was, the good news is that this new edition doesn’t replace the existing designs, as Kern informs. It is just an addition to the line. The new Navitimer 8 comes in five versions – two chronograph versions, one with the date and the other with day and date indicators; two automatic versions, one with date and the other a Day-Date; and finally the Navitimer 8 Unitimer, which has a multiple time zone display. These five watches will be available in various combinations of colours and gold, steel and leather.

trends that are expected to rule social media

Trends That Are Expected To Rule Social Media In 2018 The most common thing we hear and experience ‘Social media is evolving everyday’, which is indeed true.It’s only few months left for 2017 and we can see enormous changes in social media industry every day. On one hand we can see new social media platforms coming up and on other hand the existing social media is updating and coming up with new Ideas.There are certain predictions made every year but technology never fails to surprise us.Here are the trends predicted in social media. Where most of the points are referred from Hubspot, Forbes and Spread social, the final concluded points are my personal opinion.Increase of Paid Ads: The organic approach is no longer working like it did 5 years back. According to Hubspot, the paid campaigns on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram has increased 30% and trend is expected to go upward only in 2018.Customer Support via Social Media: The response to the customer queries is much better and quicker on social media platforms when compared to the traditional Email method. Let me share an incident, I was booking movie tickets online and the transaction got failed and I raised a mail to their Help desk and also tweeted them using my twitter handle. The response to my tweet was in 15-20 minutes and reply to my mail was 2 hours later. This clearly showed how brands are using social media to provide quicker and better customer support.SnapChat: A new social media platform which is booming among teenagers. A complete unique user experience is reason of its success. According to Forbes, Snap chat has 200million active users (It includes 11% of the total US population) with a daily data sharing up to 700 million pictures and 8.1 billion videos. Even after several controversies there are around 40 lakhs Indians users on SnapChat (Source: quora user) 99% of which is teenagers. Even in 2018 the numbers of users are predicted to increase more.Demand for Advanced content: People in 2017 are well aware of the technology. Their demand for new age and advanced content is growing day by day. Content like 360 degree video and VR (virtual reality)experience is expected to grow more and more on Social Media in coming years.More and more video: The rate of response is much more when it comes to video content on social media. And we can all see that the live video is setting trend all over Facebook and Instagram. With LinkedIn enabling video optionwill diversify the way of conducting Webinars, etc. According to Business Insider, Apple and Facebook is spending billions of dollars for original video content in 2018.More on manual work than automatic: Well, few years back when the social media was roaring it’s sky-high there plenty of automated options of uploading data, instant reply to the messages via automated plugin. But these methods are not recommended anymore, a personal touch is needed all over which boldly and clearly states, MANUAL over AUTOMATIC.Unique approach: Facebook has recently observed ‘Upload profile picture with customized frame’. This unique approach is trending on social media a lot. Any movie whose release date is near is releasing their frame and it is doing their much needed promotion. More such unique approaches will be observed in 2018.Content in multiple Languages: In countries like India with recent revolution of telecom industry, Internet users are increased tremendously. Plenty of which are using internet, Social media with their regional languages. So what I feel is in order to target and engage each and every one, Content in multiple languagesis recommended.Still there are many points raised like Twitter is losing its charm because of the popularity of # tags on Instagram, Facebook is feeling insecure with G+ coming up and growing steadily.Let’s see what 2018 will bring change in Social Media.What do you think? Please comment below.

gems of historic photography in tours

Gems of historic photography in Tours (France)Always keen to discover hidden cultural hotspots we visited the city of Tours, in the middle of France, a few times because of the extraordinary photo exhibitions presented in the Château de Tours, the old castle of the city. Since 2010 the local government and the Jeu de Paume National Gallery are collaborating on exhibitions devoted to historic photography. Exquisitely presented shows with the work of Andre Kértész, Vivian Maier, Robert Capa, Sabine Weisz, and Willy Ronis, just to name a few, have attracted the photo connoisseurs to visit the university city along the river Loire.At the moment the French photographer Lucien Hervé (1910 - 2007) is honored with an exhibition under the title ‘Geometry of Light’ in the castle’s rooms, proving he was really a magician playing with shadow and light. This exhibition at the Château de Tours pays tribute to this photographer for architects, most famous for his work for Le Corbusier, by juxtaposing, as he did, the universal and the timeless, the ancient and the modern, the abstract and the human.“My conception of photography is, on the surface, very straightforward: it seeks traces of humanity everywhere. Which may seem strange to people who go to my exhibitions. Indeed, almost all my photos avoid including any human presence in the buildings. However, I try to express that presence through the work accomplished by man”, wrote Hervé in a letter in 1964. And it is true, although the abstract forms of architecture are dominating the first impression when looking ar his photos, the human presence is always near. That is one of the fascinating aspects of Hervé’s work.Two exhibitions a year at the Château de Tours are only a small part of the activities of Jeu de Paume, the organization that presents lens-based art from the 20th and 21st century in Paris. Lovers of historic photography must mark a date between 16 October and 27 January 2019 in their agendas because then a large retrospective of Dorothea Lange, photographer of iconic images of the Great depression, will be on Display at Concorde in Paris.Visitors of Tours and surroundings can visit the Geometry of Light exhibition till 27 May, 2018. The Château de Tours is open Tuesday till Sunday from 2 PM till 6 PM.

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!

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!
