Chopard Mille Miglia Zagato


The Beastie Folly panel give a huge thumbs up to this beauty, but really, we need to find more affordable watch offerings to lust over! Chopard point out that:

This limited edition Mille Miglia benefits from the respective skills of these two prestigious Houses that both nurture a passion for cars. We handle the execution, the ‘engine’ part and the chassis, while Zagato participates in creating the bodywork, the ‘passenger compartment’ and the upholstery. Continue reading

Breitling Air Race TV Commercial

I am a confirmed Breitling fan and if money were no object then without doubt, beyond question, the next watch I would acquire would be an Aerospace Evo, so these sort of commercials are “right up my street’.

Maybe I am just a big daft fool, I don’t know, but I really do love these sort of commercials and if 70% of the cost of a Breitling watch is marketing then so be it – at least the marketing works for me. What was amusing though was that I watched this with my good wife Mrs Peanut and we actually watched the spin off  “making of” movie first, which is below. Mrs P thought we were back in the 1970s with the gratuitous adornment of the film with sexy girls pointlessly pounting and displaying lots of cleavage. Naturally I hadn’t noticed at all – too busy “clocking” the watches me lord, but after she pointed it out then, I guess Mrs P had a point. The final commercial though did tell a story which just about justified the existence of Anna and co, Mrs P conceded.  The benefit was we had to watch each video twice while we assessed the point Mrs P was trying to make.

My conclusion, I hope Anna gets to do a series for Breitling – Anna’s T*ts or Beckham’s tats? You decide!
