21 September, 2018 | Daniel Craig gets drenched in OMEGA campaign, Bentley’s 100-year spread and the masterpiece that was almost gone in 60 seconds… All this, and possibly the most precise moon phase watch, in this week’s briefing.
Daniel Craig for OMEGA
OMEGA’s latest campaign for the Seamaster Diver 300M features a dapper but drenched Daniel Craig, who went swimming in a dinner suit to promote the watch’s adaptability.
The campaign, which blends black-tie sophistication with a sense of fun, captures the essence of the new Seamaster Diver 300M, which can take you from a formal occasion to the depths of the ocean without missing a beat.
‘Best in Class’
Bentley and Opus are celebrating a century of Bentley Motors in a unique way with a ‘Best in Class’ limited edition book.
With three special distinct versions Mulliner, Centenary and Crewe, the Bentley Centenary Opus will weigh 30 kilograms, containing half-metre pages to showcase the stunning imagery. Including many archived photographs presented in full colour for the very first time, the book is set to be available in 2019.
The sombre beauty of the moon
Swiss watchmaker H. Moser & Cie is paying tribute to the lunar body that made Neil Armstrong a household name. The two technically complex models H Moser Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Vantablack and H Moser Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Gold will cost $35 000.
With only 50 of each model produced, the Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept is said to be one of the most precise moon phases available.
An icon’s icon
