IN LONDON WITH BREITLING

May 25, 2019

After the Premier B01 Chronograph 42 and the Navitimer 1 Automatic 38, the elegant Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley counts as one of my absolute favorite Breitling timepieces.

The new Premier collection embodies this proud heritage of Breitling, which is a perfect union of functionality and style, and it combines quality, performance and timeless design. The Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley British Racing Green was designed to celebrate the long-standing partnership between Breitling and Bentley Motors, which is the world’s most admired luxury car manufacturer. This model, formerly part of the Breitling for Bentley collection, and future limited Bentley editions is now in Breitling’s existing timepiece collections.

“The Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley celebrates Breitling’s partnership with one of the great names in luxury motoring. It features a 42 mm stainless steel case. It has a British racing green dial with contrasting black small seconds and 30-minute chronograph counters that indicate the Manufacture mechanical movement inside. A transparent sapphire caseback reveals the self-winding high-performance chronometer-certified chronograph caliber, Manufacture Breitling Caliber 01, which is delivered with a five-year warranty. The Premier Chronograph 42 Bentley is available with a green nubuck leather strap or a seven-row stainless steel bracelet. Two of the world’s truly elegant high-performance brands on your wrist.”

The heart of the watch is the Breitling manufacture caliber 01, a mechanical movement that is visible through the transparent case back. Other features that distinguish this watch from all other models are the Bentley engraved plate on the left side of the case, inspired by the instrument panel of the iconic 1929 Bentley Blower, and the transparent caseback with metallized Bentley logo.

“Bentley and Breitling share so many values. Both companies are known for quality, performance, and design excellence, and both can build on powerful historical legacies. It’s an ideal partnership, and, after more than 15 years, it is a pleasure to add another chapter to it.”


– Georges Kern, Breitling CEO

Overall the Breitling’s Premier B01 Chronograph 42 Bentley is one of my favorite watch from the Premier collection. It’s so timeless, and can be worn by women and men. I love the green dial, because it looks both elegant and sporty.

A Marvelous Dinner at The Arts Club

February 21, 2013

My London visit was full of beautiful moments, and I had the chance to visit London’s one of the most well known members club. My friend booked a table for tree, and we went for dinner to the club, which was founded in 1863 by Charles Dickens, Anthony Trollope and Lord Leighton.
Nestled in the heart of London, The Arts Club, offers its members fabulous dinner, filled with sumptuous light and simple dishes that pay homage to the very best seasonal and fresh produce, as well as good drinks and great live music.
It’s a club where you probably get to see Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Cattrall, Ronnie Wood and many other famous people. We haven’t seen anyone of them, but we enjoyed our dinner to the maximum.
As starter we had different salads, such as: “Quinoa salad with herbs”, “Endive salad, with gorgonzola & candied walnuts”, and “Mixed leaf salad with Mancheges”, they were all delicous. As main dish, I had a wonderful “Veal chop with rosemary crust”, and  I can highly recommend the “Roast duck breast, seared foie gras, mago chutney & seven spice sauce.”Loved the interior and the shiny black floors, red studded banquettes and touches of polished brass. Among with people-watching, the club’s contemporary art collection was my main focus there.
About The Arts Club:
Designed by David D’Almada of Sagrada, the space consists of a series of individually furnished rooms, including a sophisticated members’ Library accented in warm bronzes and rosewood, the Brasserie and Oyster Bar, finished in rich shades of blue with Deco-inspired shagreen tiles and a dramatic black, white and grey Italian marble floor in geometric design and at the heart of the space is the Grand Staircase, pulling together the past and present of the Club, made of solid creamy-white marble with a bronzed balustrade.
The state of the art kitchens are under the stewardship of Executive Head Chef, Jean-Luc Mongodin, supported by Chef Director Raphael Duntoye of La Petite Maison.
The Arts Club Curator, Amelie von Wedel of Wedel Fine Art, has meticulously selected the works of art to create a unique experience through a combination of site-specific installations and impressive new acquisitions. The permanent collection includes work by Tomas Saraceno, John Baldessari, George Condo and Matthew Darbyshire, which hangs throughout the Club alongside temporary exhibitions which showcase both emerging talent and established artists.
With a strong focus on live music, members are afforded the most cutting edge and stimulating artists in the music business. Performing art is a key element of the Club as well as a programme of cabaret and film. The chic Nightclub has taken London nightlife by storm with its Bordello interiors and fiery show stoppers. Hosting live acts four nights a week, this 80 seat speakeasy venue has been witness to nights of Rock and Roll Royalty and has attracted the likes of Ronnie Wood, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Paloma Faith, Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn.
The Arts Club invites members for breakfast, lunch, afternoon pastries and dinner, from 7am until 3am, Monday to Friday, 10am until 3am on Saturdays and 10am until Midnight on Sundays.  The art collection and exhibition space is open to the public every Wednesday and Saturday, from 9am until 12pm, arranged by prior appointments.
