Mercedes Benz – The #CLAstory

Gentlemen and fellow followers,

A different kind of post today for our followers! Our fellows from Mercedes Benz are calling on all creative people, film makers and fellows with a passion for filming to assist them with the making of their new #CLAstory campaign. You can experience the video here:

 

 

The story is evolving around the Mercedes Benz CLA, the four door coupe that has an impressive design to boast about. The front of the car has the distinctive diamond grids from Mercedes as well as an aerodynamic roof-line to help with manoeuvrability.

There are two scenes which still need to be filmed and the winners of each will be put to the public vote to decide the winner. The creator of the winning film will then get the chance to direct their #CLAstory starring the famous James Corden.

In addition, since we are approaching the summer holidays Mercedes will be throwing in a Go Pro camera for the winners, a nice added bonus to film those luxury adventures this summer.

To enter the competition simply connect via Instagram to submit your scene entry on mercedesbenz UK. So Gentlemen and fellow followers, time to get to your cameras and start uploading your ideas.

Think you’ve got what it takes to direct a short film starring James Corden? Don’t hang around and get involved. We are looking forward to seeing what kind of videos you will be uploading visit www.clastory.co.uk for full info. Competition ends on the 6th of July 2014.

Introducing Watchfinder

Gentlemen and fellow followers,

 

We joined our fellows from Watchfinder on Thursday for a very special event at their boutique at The Royal Exchange in Bank. The master class brought together like minded gentlemen and gentlewomen to discuss the latest trends in the luxury watch industry.

Watchfinder Reader Event

We had the opportunity to meet the team from the Watchfinder at the event, who were kind enough to share with us their points of views on the watch industry and news about their new edition of the Watchmag (you can download their app here) . We also had the chance to see one of their watchmakers showcasing their art.

 

If you fellows are in the market and are looking to purchase a new timepiece or currently in the research phase, we would recommend you getting in touch with the gentlemen from Watchfinder. We came by the fellows from Watchfinder during our research for our first timepiece.

Rolex GMT Master

We opted for the classical Rolex Submariner Datejust for a few reasons. We were really interested by the history behind the Rolex Submariner. Designed for diving (up to 300m) by Rolex, the Submariner is known for its high quality, water resistance and corrosion. With the summer coming up, we thought it best to procure ourselves a luxury watch that would resist sea water.

Rolex Submariner

Another reason is that the Rolex Submariner is a good entry level timepiece for the fellows entering the luxury watch ladder. It won’t lose value over time and it could help with your next luxury timepiece acquisition. Our fellows at Watchfinder can help you with your upgrade since their moto is “Pre-owned Uncompromised”.

 

So Gentlemen, if you are interested in learning more about the latest trends in the luxury watch industry download their app here. If you are also looking to purchase your next luxury timepiece then visit our fellows at Watchfinder.

Most Expensive Luxury Watches

Gentlemen and fellow followers,

 

For most of us pay day has just arrived and for some of our fellows, Q2 bonuses are just around the corner. With these in mind, we thought it would be a good time to showcase a few interesting luxury watches. As some of your gentlemen will agree, a watch is much more than just an item that gives you the time.

Hublot Big Bang Steel Ceramic 44mm

Hublot Big Bang Steel Ceramic 44mm – £13,700

A personal favourite of Luxurymenblog is the Hublot Big Bang Steel Ceramic 44mm. The Swiss manufacturer is renowned for their “art of fusion” of different material combinations. This is the entry level watch in terms of price, but it does portrait a sense of edginess and stylish feel when worn. The combination of steel and ceramic gives the timepiece an extra sense of luxury. The movement is Hublot’s Self Winding Chronograph movement.

 

Patek Philippe 2526

Patek Philippe 2526 – £26,900

For our fellows who prefer the more classic timpiece, the Patek Philippe 2526 is a safe choice. Originally introduced in the 1950s, it was Patek’s first automatic movement which is considered an iconic watch by many collectors. The 18K gold case and porcelain dial offers something different to us fellow gentlemen. Only 600 2526 timepieces were created by Patek Philippe, making this watch quite rare.

 

If these two previous timepieces were indeed on the lower end of the spectrum in terms of price, the following timepieces are for the gentlemen who have some spare money to spend from their left over bonus.

LOUIS MOINET METEORIS WATCH

Louis Moinet Meteoris Watch ~ Price £2,760,000

The third most expensive timepiece in the world, the Louis Moinet Meteoris watch. The collection is comprised of 4 models, including Tourbillion Mars, Tourbillon Moon, Tourbillion Rosetta Stone and the Tourbillion Asteroid. Each timepiece features a rare piece of meteorite making each piece unique. Our personal favourite is the Tourbillion Mars, not only for the look but because the piece has a 180M piece of meteorite featuring in it as well as the tourbillion movement.

 

 PATEK PHILIPPE – HENRY GRAVES – POCKET WATCH

Patek Philippe – Henry Graves – Pocket Watch ~ Price: £6,600,000

Fellows, we are now entering a different league of gentlemen. The special pocket watch produced by Patek Philippe for the famous American banker Henry Graves. Being the second most expensive timepiece in the World the Patek Philippe Henry Graves Pocket Watch is by far a super rich timepiece. The watchmakers took 5 years to complete the timepiece in 1933 and boasts 24 different movements and is 18K gold. A very interesting timepiece as it has history behind it.

So Gentlemen, which would you pick?
