Fine jeweller and watchmaker Harry Winston is known for unveiling an astounding new timepiece every year – you could set your watch by it. And the brand’s latest piece of haute horlogerie – the seventh in its Histoire de Tourbillon series – is perhaps the most technically advanced yet. No.7 features two biaxial tourbillons turning on separate axes at a 30-degree angle. The ingenious design is skeletonised, providing perfect peepholes to wonder at the mechanics. If you’re a horophile, you’ll be awestruck by its complexity – and its rarity; just 20 of the new timepiece are being produced.
Serious globe-trotters know the difference that well-designed luggage can make. But only those who have travelled with a TecknoMonster trunk can testify to its transformative properties. The brand’s latest design, Virtus, is possibly the most luxurious piece of luggage ever made. The feather-light carbon-fibre shell is lined with leather, trimmed with crocodile and polished brass, and features ingeniously smooth and clever movement mechanisms. Once you get to your destination, the wheels can be secreted away; and voilà, the world’s best-looking luggage becomes the world’s most portable wardrobe, for a très bon voyage.

Inspired by maps and Victorian engraving, the dream-like settings juxtapose cartography with fantastical animals on a range of fabrics and furniture; her latest design adorns a series of globes.
With the modern world dominated by instant messaging, FaceTime and emails, the art of putting pen to paper is on the wane. Montegrappa has, however, found a happy medium with its Extra APC1 case. Designed to accommodate an Apple Pencil, it lets users “write” on iPads while retaining the look and feel of a traditional pen – so adding a sense of heritage and sophistication to pressing “send”.
