Breitling and IRONMAN have signed a long-term partnership and teamed up to co-design the Endurance Pro IRONMAN watches, a special series of Breitling’s ultimate athleisure watch. The result is a set of perfectly lightweight and lighthearted luxury sports watches combining high precision, innovative technology, and vibrant, colorful design. The launch features two exciting new watches: a red version available globally at all Breitling boutiques and retailers and online for sports and timekeeping enthusiasts, and a black and gold piece exclusively available for IRONMAN race finishers. Additional models reserved for the IRONMAN community are planned for the coming months. 

Ironman and Breitling partner to launch new watches

In 2019, Breitling and IRONMAN had already launched the highly successful Breitling Superocean IRONMAN Limited Edition. This new partnership kicks off a long-term collaboration with Breitling becoming the new Official Luxury Watch of IRONMAN. To celebrate the partnership and offer a first look at the watches, a special event was held at the Breitling Boutique in Beverly Hills. In attendance as special guests were IRONMAN Hall of Famer and 1997 IRONMAN World Champion, Heather Fuhr; IRONMAN Ambassador and the first person with Down syndrome to finish an IRONMAN, Chris Nikic; IRONMAN Hall of Famer and the Voice of IRONMAN, Mike Reilly; and professional IRONMAN triathlete Ben Hoffman, who was also on hand to celebrate the new watches as well as his recent partnership with Breitling as a local ambassador in the US. Since turning professional in 2007, Hoffman has won numerous IRONMAN, IRONMAN 70.3 and National Championship victories.

All three members of Breitling’s Triathlon Squad have distinguished themselves in IRONMAN triathlon events around the world. German triathlete Jan Frodeno is not only a 2008 Olympic gold medalist, but also a three-time IRONMAN World Champion and a two-time IRONMAN 70.3® World Champion. In 2019, Frodeno recorded a best overall course time at the IRONMAN World Championship®, winning in 7:51:13. Daniela Ryf, a native of Breitling’s home country of Switzerland, is a five-time IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion and four-time IRONMAN World Champion. The third squad member is Chris “Macca” McCormack from Australia, who has claimed two IRONMAN World Championship titles – in 2007 and again in 2010. He also won the 2012 ITU Long Distance World Championships.

All three represent the best in IRONMAN triathlon racing, which brings together three disciplines into the world’s most challenging single-day races, consisting of 2.4 miles (3.8 km) of swimming, 112 miles (180 km) of cycling, and 26.2 miles (42.2 km) of running.

The new Endurance Pro IRONMAN collection serves athletes as well as luxury clients looking for the ultimate athleisure timepiece. Its 44 mm watch case is made out of Breitlight, which is 3.3 times lighter than titanium and 5.8 times lighter than steel, but significantly harder. This exclusive high-tech material boasts exceptional resistance to scratches, traction, and corrosion. It also stands out for its anti-magnetic and anti-allergic properties, as well as its thermal stability, which gives it a warmer feel than metal. It’s powered by the Breitling Caliber 82, a COSC-certified thermo compensated SuperQuartz movement that is ten times more precise than regular quartz and offers a battery life of approximately three to four years.

The bidirectional rotating bezel has engraved compass points, and the tactile molded crown provides excellent grip and maneuverability. The hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova®, making them legible even in limited lighting conditions. Along with a small-second sub dial, there are 1/10th second and 30-minute chronograph counters that have also been designed for easy reading. The watch is water-resistant to 10 bar/100 meters/330 feet.

At present there are two versions available: Endurance Pro IRONMAN and Endurance Pro IRONMAN Finisher. The former comes with a red dial featuring a black inner bezel with a pulsometer scale. The watch is presented on a red rubber strap with a Breitlight double tang-type buckle. It features a unique IRONMAN inscription instead of the Breitling inscription. The latter – black accented with gold – is targeted at athletes who’ve completed an IRONMAN event. This version will be available exclusively through IRONMAN channels, and its case back features a special IRONMAN Finisher Series engraving.

Flydubai to offer daily flights to Warsaw from September 2021

Ghaith Al Ghaith, CEO at flydubai, said, "We have been flying to Krakow in Poland since 2018 and by adding Warsaw to our network we are providing our passengers with more options for travel to and from Poland. We look forward to creating travel and trade flows with our daily service."

The LEGO Group unveiled the latest enviable addition to its garage, a life-size replica of the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 made from over 400,000 LEGO Technic elements. This show stopping collaboration with Automobili Lamborghini demonstrates once again that with Technic, you can build whatever you can imagine for real.

LEGO Group and Automobili Lamborghini to create life-size replica of the Lamborghini Sian

Following the launch of the 1:8 scale LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 last year, this life-size model replicates the visionary design of the limited-edition Italian super sports car on a much grander scale. Over 154 different types of LEGO elements have been used to ensure the model embodies the futuristic elegance and unmistakeable silhouette of the Lamborghini Sian, down to the most minute details.

Lena Dixen, Senior Vice President of Product and Marketing at the LEGO Group said: “Our designers love a challenge, so you can imagine their delight when we tasked them to think slightly larger than normal with this model. They jumped at the chance of teaming up with our amazing designers and engineers from our model production workshop at the Kladno factory in the Czech Republic who build these impressive life-size models, and really pushing the boundaries of what can be done with LEGO Technic. The creativity that the system allows meant it was possible to really do justice to the exceptional design of the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37.”

Marking the second collaboration between the two companies’ talented designers, engineers and technicians, the model mirrors the dimensions of the Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 to the millimeter. The proportion-perfect frame is covered with an intricate fabric of bespoke hexagonal LEGO Technic elements which interconnect to form an energy-charged shell. The design plays homage to the six-sided shape that plays an integral role in Automobili Lamborghini’s design language, echoing the iconic hexagonal taillights and exhaust shape on the Italian super sports car.

Externally the Lamborghini Sian’s design has been replicated in meticulous detail. The word Sían means “flash” or “lightning” in the Bolognese dialect so to mark this, the electrical experts from the LEGO Group ensured that the lights and sleek lightning bolt that flashes along the body reflect how the real model’s epsilon headlights and hexagonal taillights power up and down. 

Inside the cockpit the detail continues, with a brick-built steering wheel emblazoned with the famous Lamborghini emblem and Italian flag, LEGO-built dashboard controls and racing seats. This model is the first large-scale model from the LEGO Group to have a paintbrush-effect UV color coating applied to ensure the model lasts a lifetime. The color, which is a perfect match to the 1:8 scale LEGO Technic model, was applied by Automobili Lamborghini’s official paint shop to ensure a finish worthy of the super sports car.The result: a flawless model that could be mistaken for the real super sports car, proudly created by a team of 15 people during 8,660 hours of development and painstaking construction.

Following the breath-taking launch of the 1:8 scale model, the life-size LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sian FKP37 has been given its own show-stopping moment deserving of the super sports car. In a new first-of-its-kind virtual unveiling from the LEGO Group, the full-scale model has been rebuilt in a virtual LEGO workshop to give supercar fans and LEGO lovers the chance to get up close and personal with the immense model, while ensuring the safety of fans around the world. 

The resulting experience is packed with suspense and emotion, making viewers’ dreams come true by giving them the chance to get behind the wheel of the 1:8 scale model before they are ‘transformed’ along with the model into the full-scale replica revealed today.  The experience lets viewers explore this feat of design excellence in their own time; they can sit in the driver’s seat and hear from the talented Automobili Lamborghini and LEGO Group designers who made this model a reality.

With spring comes fresh hope, and with it, more so than ever this year, light at the end of a long, dark tunnel. The new Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy has a simple ambition – to bring a smile. It picks up the all-bronze case, bezel, crown and bracelet combination engineered by Oris for the Hölstein Edition 2020, and adds a peppy palette of dial colors in either sky blue, wild green or lipstick pink. 

Oris Divers Sixty-Five Cotton Candy features a Swiss Made mechanical movement

The 38 mm case is intentionally unisex, while bronze creates its own story with its patina during the natural, charming process of oxidization. Each model is powered by an automatic Swiss Made mechanical movement and delivers the same quality standards the Divers Sixty-Five collection is now synonymous with: domed sapphire crystal, water-resistant to 10 bar (100 meters) and hands and applied indices filled with bright Super-LumiNova. 

Why the name Cotton Candy - because these are watches designed to bring warmth and the optimism of better times. The watch cases are made of multi-piece bronze and feature a uni-directional rotating bezel with bronze inlay and minute scale in relief. The watch is covered with a glass sapphire, domed on both sides with anti-reflective coating inside. The case back is made of stainless steel with special engravings. 

The watch is water resistant to 100 meters and has hands for hours, minutes and seconds, a date window, instantaneous date, date corrector, fine-timing device and stop-second.

The watch with leather strap retails for CHF 2,200 and the one with metal bracelet retails for CHF 2,500.

Seven-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton was awarded the Laureus Athlete Advocate of the Year Award at the 22nd edition of the Laureus World Sports Awards. Hamilton received the honor during Thursday night’s virtual awards ceremony, which was presented from the Spanish city of Seville. This year’s ceremony was hosted by Paz Vega, one of Spain’s great international actresses and a native of host city Seville. Vega, who has starred in countless European and Hollywood movies.

Lewis Hamilton bags Laureus Athlete Advocate of the Year Award

During the evening, seven-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton was presented with the Laureus Athlete Advocate of the Year Award. This award celebrates the work of athletes who have harnessed their power and influence as elite sportsmen and women to bring change to the world around them and who have inspired a new generation to tackle inequality and injustice. Hamilton clinched a record-equalling seventh Drivers’ Championship late last year, driving for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team. Hamilton's remarkable achievements on the track have been matched by his increasingly powerful stance on racial justice and social and environmental issues.

As well as honoring brilliant sporting performances, the annual awards ceremony also shines a spotlight on the work of the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, which currently supports more than 250 projects in over 40 countries. This year’s ceremony highlighted inspirational stories about those who have worked tirelessly to combat the effects of the pandemic over the course of the last year and highlighted the recent advocacy work of sportsmen and women, who have used their influence and power to transform lives beyond sport.

In 2019, approximately 300,000 young people around the world benefitted from more than 200 projects supported by Laureus Sport for Good in over 40 countries; programs that use sport to promote social change and put an end to violence, discrimination and disadvantage. Every program Laureus supports addresses at least one of the following six social issues, which align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals: Health, Education, Women and Girls, Employability, Inclusive Society and Peaceful Society.

The UAE tourism sector has continued to recover during Q1, 2021, with the average hotel occupancy rates across the country nearing 63 percent, according to initial data released by the local tourist authorities. Average length of stay in hotels during Q1 increased 27.6 percent to 4.3 nights as compared to the same period last year, with March recording a growth of 34 percent in the number of hotel guests comparatively with March 2020.

UAE tourism sector rebounds as hotel occupancy rates nearing 63 percent

UAE nationals accounted for 25.6 percent of total guests in the reference period -one million guests- with March seeing a thumping 112 percent growth in the Emirati hotel guests as compared to the same month last year. Dubai proved to be the preferred destination for Emiratis, followed by Abu Dhabi, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah then Sharjah.

MENA Newswire: The Graham Superlight Carbon Skeleton weighs less than 100 grams. Its 47mm case is formed of epoxy resin infused with a red dye, while the widespread use of 3K carbon further contributes to the model’s featherlight mass. The open-worked dial reveals various components in motion and the chronograph trigger delivers an ergonomic interface between the watch and its wearer. Despite having a low mass, the model’s torso remains remarkably strong. Within its structure are metallized carbon fibers, presented in bronze tones, bestowing contrast.

Strong and macho Graham superlight carbon skeleton watch weighs less than 100 grams

The Graham Superlight Carbon Skeleton is equipped with the brand’s legendary thumb-operated trigger, positioned on the left side of the case. This instrument is operated using the thumb, the fastest acting digit. With this design, a right-handed person will instinctively place their plumpest digit on the trigger and press it intuitively at breakneck speed.

Another key benefit of positioning the crown and trigger on the left is that it provides superior wearer comfort. Often when a watch is worn and the wearer flexes their wrist, the protrusions on the right flank of the case gouge the wrist, chafe the skin or inhibit free movement. No such problems affect the Graham Superlight Carbon Skeleton. Lastly, the trigger is formed of 3K carbon, again contributing to the model’s low mass.

The black rubber reset pusher, embellished with Clous de Paris decoration, delivers notable grip, a useful attribute during the heat of competition. In common with all Graham chronographs, the Superlight Carbon Skeleton demonstrates the company’s overriding obsession with ergonomics.

Graham doesn’t do ordinary or bland. Its watches are intended to engage with hearts and minds. The Superlight Carbon Skeleton features an open-worked dial revealing several naked components that are usually hidden from view. Prominent hour and minute hands, lined with Super-LumiNova, come to the fore to lucidly convey the time. Two counters, a 30-minute register at 3 o'clock and a small seconds counter at 9 o'clock, employ red hands to impart meaning. The dial is framed with a black carbon (3K) bezel combining black and grey hues, underscoring the sporty character of the watch. For more information or to purchase the watch, visit their website.
