‘Real luxury is understanding quality, and having the time to enjoy it.’
– G. Bruce Boyer
’Tis the season for shopping enthusiasts to find the most perfect gift for their partner, husband or favorite gentleman. However, we all know it’s not an easy task, even for the most style savvy sophisticate out to score a win when searching for their special someone. The current trend in the coolest Holiday gifts for 2017 are now leaning towards the rare or experiential.
For many it feels almost impossible to give a welcoming surprise present to a man, who has everything. Esquire magazine has suggested an extravagant list of 20 of the most unique, for the sophisticate, like a vintage Louis Vuitton wardrobe trunk for over $24,000. Or a Bottle of 200 Year Old Cognac. The most highly coveted Patek Philippe Reference 5146J Watch is an annual calendar and moon-phase timepiece, in 18-karat yellow gold. $42,400.
But for the most avant garde sophisticate, the use of futuristic space age materials such as titanium are becoming de rigueur. For a luxury brand it’s about style, durability, and luxury that carries through the whole experience, even from the case design and identical proportions at 45mm wide and 14mm thick. Pairing up with the most coveted Lamborghini enthusiast, the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Pirelli and the Excalibur Aventador S extend the Excalibur line. The Excalibur Aventador S has a more complex case with various bits made of titanium, carbon fiber, and rubber. The Excalibur Spider Pirelli chooses to be a little more restrained, and opts for a monochromatic look with plenty of titanium (with black DLC) and rubber.
Men’s luxury accessories are becoming more hardcore, durable and strong, with the use of titanium. Even Paloma Picasso has joined the bandwagon with her Tiffany brand of machine like accents and grooves, Paloma’s Groove ™.
Another high end brand, Solloshi Supreme Accessories, is also dedicated to making ultra high-quality masterpieces out of high-end, 21st century materials, with a special focus on titanium.
