Swiss luxury timepiece designer MB&F is not new to designing avant-garde horological designs for their renown timepieces. Their most recent rendition dubbed ‘Bulldog’ is actually inspired by the animal itself.
Available in both titanium or rose gold, the new timepiece features an elongated case, its four lugs wrapping around its laterals imitating the legs of the dog. A domed sapphire crystal at the lower end forms the head of the animal, in which two separate “eyes” rotate to indicate the hours and minutes. It even features a jaw-like mechanism on the bottom of the watch which cleverly acts as a power-reserve scale, opening wide when it’s charged and closing completely once it depletes. Movement-wise, it holds an in-house manual winding movement operating at 18,000 vibrations per hour with a 45 hour power reserve, intricately constructed with a whopping 301 components. Other features include a flying balance wheel, 50m water-resistance and SuperLuminova applied hands and markers.
For those interested in the MB&F HM10 Bulldog, it’s now available for $120,000 USD. Head over to the brand’s website to learn more now.

Luxury watch label Bremont has recently unveiled their lavish 2020 collection featuring their deluxe ALT1-P2Jet showcasing a stealthy and innovative design. Inspired by Bremont’s ALT1-P pilot’s watch, the ALT1-P2 Jet marks the first edition of any watch utilizing a special diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating.
Design features include a midnight composition defined by its black dial, which features the brand’s signature “51 lume” glowing solution. Sticking to the trends of today in watch-wear design, the back of the style reveals an exposed mechanical system that’s been doused in all-black for a polished look. Leather or bracelet straps, depending on the preference, finish the sleek design.
With the goal of enhancing their design and style, Bremont teamed with British inventor and Gravity Industries founder Richard Browning to put this rendition to test. The imaginative inventor seeks to create a 1000 horsepower “Gravity Jet Suit,” while utilizing the luxury watch throughout the rigorous trials.
The ALT1-P2 is priced at $5,595 USD for the leather strap edition and $6,195 USD for the bracelet version. Look out for the piece to become available in the near future at Bremont’s website.
California-hinged Czinger unveil a 21C, an all-new hybrid hypercar that has been made using 3D printing technology. New age technology curating new age cars was the simplistic goal for Czinger.
Czinger has used 3D printing to craft almost everything that underpins the car, from its chassis to the suspension wishbones, front crash structure, windscreen surround and even the dashboard. This revolutionary technique is combined with cost-effective carbon fiber tubing and aluminum that together makes for a hypercar with a true 1:1 weight-to-power ratio, as well as a very strong structure. The 21C comes equipped with a hybrid engine — 937 BHP from the 2.88-liter twin-turbo V8 that redlines at 11,000 RPM, and two hybrid components that give the 21C a total of 1,250 BHP at the wheels. Performance figures are equally impressive, with a claimed 0-60 MPH time of just 1.9 seconds and from naught to 248 MPH and back to naught in just 29 seconds.
Czinger is reportedly building just 80 units — divided between 25 track and 55 road iterations — which will cost from $1.7m USD each. Find out more about the 3D-printed hypercar on Czinger’s website.

Above is the official teaser for the united efforts from New York based fashion brand, Aime Leon Dore and our favorite luxury car curator Porsche. This partnership showcases the creative skill-set of these two powerhouses and the design aesthetic that they share when curating a style and look.
ALD (Aime Leon Dore) took drastic research steps to participate in the automotive design world by taking several trips to Porsche Museum and 911 assembly line in Stuttgart, Germany. From this extensive training and growth of knowledge resulted in a fully functional recreation of a Porsche classic. Attention to details plays out well as completely reupholstering the interior using Schott sunflower leather and Loro Piana houndstooth — inspired by ALD’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection. Cup 2 wheels nod to 1990s-era Porsches, while a Pegasus graphic detail above the front wheel pays homage to the marque’s racing heritage. The most notable addition to the ALD 911 is the custom-made badge, proudly stating “ALD 964” on the rear grille.
Porsche has been woven into the DNA of Aimé Leon Dore since the brand’s conception. For me, the Porsche 911 is perhaps the single most iconic automobile of all time, a car whose design synthesizes many of the values that connect Porsche and Aimé — simplicity, ambition, tradition, and beauty.
Also stated in its press release, “Rich top-grain leather wraps the dashboard, steering wheel, and door panels, while the reverse suede side of the leather covers the headliner and sunroof.”
