19 October, 2018 | This week in luxury, Omega celebrates 70 years with a timeless hardback, a luxury yacht is powered by the sun, and Range Rover partners with Hans Zimmer for a scenic drive symphony.
Solar Impact is redefining what luxury yachting could be with a completely gas- and diesel-free yacht. The noiseless yacht will be powered solely by the sun. Covered in 300 square meters of solar panels, the Solar impact yacht will have over 1 300 horsepower and will be capable of cruising at over 40 km/h. The Swedish yacht is still to actually be built, but is already a contender for the most innovative ocean cruiser yet.
From Seamaster to Seamaster
Marking the 70th anniversary of the famous Omega Seamaster, a captivating new photographic book has been created to detail the collection’s incredible design history. Exactly 70 unique Seamaster watches were selected for the project and were photographed in a truly creative studio setting. Featuring more than 200 exclusive watch portraits, From Seamaster to Seamaster is a celebratory story of evolution, revolution and superb craftsmanship in the finest detail.
Disconnect, unwind and relax
Namibia’s Serra Cafema, below verdant trees on the banks of the Kunene River has reopened. Located in one of the most remote regions in southern Africa the Wilderness Safaris luxury camp offers life-changing journeys to this extraordinary desert location, ensuring the ongoing biodiversity protection of this pristine area and positively impacting the local community members of the Marienfluss Conservancy, owned primarily by the Himba people.
A scenic Range Rover composition
The visceral feeling of driving on winding roads in the mountains can be an inspiring experience. Range Rover invited award-winning, movie score composer Hans Zimmer to embark on this journey in the San Gabriel Mountains, Los Angeles with the goal of creating a score inspired by and unique to this unparalleled drive. With more than 150 films in a career, the German producer created an evocative and dynamic piece of music.
