This special edition Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged was made in a fantastic partnership between Land Rover and Holland & Holland. The Holland & Holland Edition is currently the most expensive flagship model available.

The beautiful creation started with a long-wheelbase Autobiography Black model and went on to include even more upgrades and enhancements. The car’s color is a one-off shade of green specific to Holland & Holland that covers everything from the grille’s & mirrors to the bodywork – except for some characteristic chrome trim. Once inside, the details become even more impressive.

The Land Rover Range Rover Holland & Holland Edition’s interior has been outfitted with executive class reclining seats that make one feel as though they are in a private jet. The walnut tables, engraved door handles, and extra soft tan leather complete the experience.

In the car’s trunk you’ll find a special gun box that is crafted in aluminum and trimmed with alcantara and leather. A perfect fit for two Holland & Holland sporting arms… This box is perfectly mated to a deployable carbon fiber & aluminum cargo floor.

The car comes with two engine options: a 4.4L V8 turbo diesel or 5.0L supercharged V8 engine. The stunning Land Rover Range Rover Holland & Holland Edition will retail for about £180,000 or $285,000 with only 40 models built each year for three years.

The Henry Graves Jr. Supercomplication has long been known as the World’s Most Famous Watch.

 

A November 11th auction in Geneva reaffirmed this status. The timepiece sold for a recording breaking $24 million.

The Patek Philippe–designed watch was created as the result of a 1925 “contest” between two watch collectors, New York City banking magnate Henry Graves Jr. and automaker James Ward Packard, to see who could create the most complicated watch.

The $24 million final price smashed its estimate of $17 million, and more than doubled its 1999 hammer price of $11 million, which at the time set a record for a watch purchased at auction.

 

The Henry Graves Jr Supercomplication is a 14k gold watch which comprises 900 individual parts and boasts 24 complications (features other than time), including a perpetual calendar that extends to the year 2100, indications for the time of sunset and sunrise, a stopwatch for hours and minutes, an alarm, a map of the sky over Graves’ New York City apartment, and chimes that sound like Big Ben.

It is an exquisite handcrafted timepiece that may never be matched without a machine!

The Once and Future King… Preowned Patek Philippe Calatrava 5127J Revisited!

In Patek, luxury watch buyers find a champion of enduring beauty whose commitment to traditional dress watch aesthetics spans generations of bygone design fads.

The Geneva stalwart built its name on formal watches, but amid all of the auction-circuit hype driven by Patek complications, it’s important to note that the company’s modern icon remains the 1932 Calatrava.

A simple three-hand watch, it practically defined the rules for a men’s dress reference.

The basic Calatrava aesthetic endures with mild refinements in this reference 5127J. Produced from 2005 to 2012, the 5127J exhibits the calling cards of a classic Calatrava.

Whereas most round watches of the era featured a jarring transition from round case to straight lugs, the Calatrava blended the two into a seamless continuity that flowed from lug to lug.

In the 5127, Patek Philippe‘s signature “Calatrava” lugs merge with a case that measures 37mm in diameter. It’s large enough to retain a masculine presence alongside modern watches, but it retains the effortless elegance of the original.

Critically, the 5127 projects an aura of confidence; because it has survived the trials of time and buried legions of transient vogues, the Calatrava is an ideal match for a man who stands above the self-conscious fashion fray.

“As a young girl, I can remember playing in my mother’s jewelry box. I was mesmerized by the colors, the shapes and the details.”
