A. Lange & Sohne - The perfect sound of time
The Zeitwerk Minute Repeater is the first mechanical watch that pairs a jumping numerals display with a decimal minute repeater. But it is not just an amazing horological work of art: it is also a fine-tuned mechanical musical instrument for the wrist. The first few of these watches are now being delivered to select showrooms.

Musical instruments have been crafted in Saxony for centuries, especially around the town of Markneukirchen in the Vogtlandkreis district, where more than 100 workshops still uphold this tradition today. By definition, an exceptional music experience is based on purity of sound. Just like master instrument makers, the product developers at A. Lange & Söhne are keen on achieving perfect sonority, for instance in the new Zeitwerk Minute Repeater.

In a chiming watch, as in musical instruments, the physical laws that govern acoustic phenomena are key to achieving sounds of superior quality and reverberant volume. The case material, the size and shape of the gongs, the way they are secured to the movement, the number of moving parts – every detail counts. Special measuring technologies and a musically trained ear are essential in the development of a minute repeater for optimising the individual acoustic parameters down to the finest of nuances. It begins with loudness. The volume of the sound must be perceptible but not overbearing. Its fullness and purity must be compelling to the connoisseur. The rhythm and cadence of the sounds should express pleasant musicality. The gongs must harmonize perfectly with one another. All the while, any chatter of the striking mechanism must be reduced to the absolute minimum. It was a formidable challenge for Lange's product developers to fulfil all of these criteria.

But even during the assembly of the Zeitwerk Minute Repeater, the watchmakers must perform numerous adjustments. As is commonplace for high-end musical instruments, the gongs are tuned exclusively by hand until they thoroughly harmonise with each other. In the end, they both sound full and pure – so the future owners of one of these masterpieces can look forward to a splendid experience in sonority.

REVIEW: Orange Elephant - Incredible Steak That’s Elegant In Its Simplicity
Leanne Kelsall checks out Flat Iron’s better dressed cousin on London’s fashionable Fulham Road.

So you’re relentlessly searching Google with one thing in mind. Steak. But not just any old steak. You’re looking for the real deal. A champion cow. One that was grass-fed and hand-reared. When it comes to London’s finest fillet, there’s no shortage of mouth-watering meateries on offer. It’s a tough choice, and there’s nothing worse than splashing out on a steak that doesn’t fit the bill. So with just a single 12oz Sirloin on the menu, can a Chelsea chophouse with no choice really satisfy your carnivorous cravings? Orange Elephant think so, and now, we think so too.

One of the luxury SUV's we didn't add to our poll was the Lamborghini Urus which should be on the roads in 2018, even though it wasn't one you could vote for, it doesn't stop us from having a closer look!

Output of around 440 kW / 600 hp and Lamborghini's excellent know-how in the field of lightweight design technologies guarantee breathtaking dynamics. At the same time, the Urus will offer the lowest CO2 figure of all comparable vehicles. As an SUV concept with four generous seats, a versatile luggage compartment, variable ground clearance and, of course, permanent all-wheel drive, the Urus delivers unique driving fun with virtually no limitations. The interior, too, matches the standards of this super athlete with innovative materials featuring carbon fiber technology like the patented Forged Composite®.

The luxury SUV segment is successful worldwide and promises continued strong growth - a luxurious and powerful SUV is the most emotional way to drive a four-door vehicle equipped to meet all the demands of everyday mobility and yet enjoy refined driving fun. The Urus means that a Lamborghini can now be used by a household as its primary car. This expands the brand's customer base enormously - appealing to families and to the drivers of Lamborghini super sports cars who have thus far driven SUV models from other brands. Target markets are primarily the USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, the Middle East and China. The annual production volume could conceivably be around 3,000 vehicles.
