Burberry celebrates the Lunar New Year holiday season with a dedicated experience on Chinese social messaging platform WeChat, and a gifting assortment of iconic products for men and women. Building on its long-standing partnership with the platform, the Burberry WeChat account has launched ‘A Lunar New Year Gift’, a dedicated interactive messaging service for its followers.

The experience invites users to use native app functionality – tapping, swiping and shaking – to unwrap some of the brand’s iconic gifts. At the end of the experience, users can also create and personalise digital Lunar New Year envelopes to send to friends and family to celebrate the holiday through the platform. WeChat users in China will also be given the chance to win limited edition physical Burberry Lunar New Year envelopes.

Burberry first partnered with WeChat in February 2014 with the launch of personalised platform activity during the brand’s womenswear show in London, followed by a platform-exclusive experience for Burberry’s event in Shanghai in April 2014. Through a parallel social event experience, followers were able to interact with a series of London and Shanghai skylines by shaking, swiping or tapping their devices before the event. After the event, interactive event panoramas could be brought to life, allowing users to immerse themselves in dynamic, 360° views of the London and Shanghai set.

Honor 7 Smartphone – Latest Flagship by Honor

[Tech & Gadgets]

12471351_10154379269210278_1477327824674338024_o

 

Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, recently launched its latest Huawei honor 7 smartphone in Kuala Lumpur.

Honor is a sub-brand of Huawei and has been in the Malaysian market since April 2014. While Huawei smartphones target the more premium market, honor was introduced to meet the needs of Huawei’s younger consumers namely the ‘always on’ digital natives, a group that lives on the internet, spending one third of their time online for social and entertainment, shopping, studying or simply staying connected.

With that in mind, honor has a no-stores, no-gurus, no-contracts approach which is something very different in the mobile device marketplace, enabling customers to get the best technology at a great value price which holds quite to its tagline “Your unfair advantage”.

The new honor 7 is a fully metallic flagship smartphone that comes equipped with a host of innovative smart functions and multimedia capabilities that can be unlocked by using smart buttons and a gesture-enabled fingerprint reader.

Speaking at the launch, Allen An, Director of E-Commerce Malaysia, said: “Developed to make operating it as simple as possible, the honor 7’s solid performance will be a true reflection of user’s identity. Its multi-functionality enables digital natives – especially young working adults – to outperform their peers no matter if it is at work or leisure. Its smart and multimedia capabilities will also inspire action and creativity that will surprises everybody in their circles.”

“The device’s precise dimensions and metallic finish offer an optimal form-factor and premium feel, making it a highly reliable smartphone. All of these will allow digital natives to keep their competitive edge in today’s fast paced society,” An added.

 

 

10259225_10154379269215278_5297428013915850336_o

 

 

The honor 7’s fully metallic body is air-brushed with a ceramic coating, offering a very premium look, while the device’s 5.2-inch encasing and well positioned buttons and sensors allows for ergonomic single-handed operation.

The honor 7’s frame-free metallic fingerprint reader allows for rapid 360-degree fingerprint authentication from various angles and even has a self-learning capability that allows scanning accuracy to be enhanced through the subtle re-recording of registered fingerprints during use. The reader also supports intuitive gesture control that enables you to answer calls to take photos.

The smartphone is powered by the HiSilicon octa-core Kirin 935 processor with its A53, 3GB RAM and 16GB ROM memory, ensuring that you can run the most resource intensive apps without a hitch. Its L-shaped circuit board keeps the device cool while Huawei’s Signal+ technology and a smart dual-antenna design allows for the networks with stronger signals to be found at 80-times the average speed of similar devices. The smartphone comes with a long-lasting 3,100mAh battery, which offers good standby and use times, and the device also has quick-charging* capabilities.

 

The honor 7’s rear camera is a monster 20MP camera, which is powered by a Sony IMX 230 sensor and honor’s PDAF fast-focusing technology that allows its f/2.0-aperture lens to capture vivid low-light-condition images. The 8MP front-facing camera comes with a wide-angle f/2.4 aperture lens and built-in LED flash which has an image enhancement capabilities and panorama feature, helping you to take selfies or groufies.

For those of you who love snapping photos of your food, the honor 7 has a Good Food mode that adjusts the colour to help you to take nice food shots. The device is also equipped with various filters and has the Huawei P8’s revolutionary light-painting capability through which users can construct vibrant artistic images.

The honor 7 was designed to redefine mobile Internet experiences, and thus offers smart capabilities aided in part by its smart key, an additional button placed on the left-side of the device that can be used for quick Google searches on-the-go. A really useful feature is the fingerprint reader on the back of the device which also functions as a camera trigger, enabling you to take selfies by just tapping their index finger on the fingerprint scanner in camera mode.

The honor 7 also comes with voice capabilities, such as the ability to be woken up with a designated command, like “Dear honor”. Follow that up with a “where are you” and the device will call the user to find out its location. Taking screenshots is also much easier with its knuckle-tap feature that allow you to tap the screen twice with your knuckles for an instant full-screen capture.

The honor 7 is also available in Mystery Gray.

 

My first thoughts is that this is one sleek and sexy flagship smartphone with its metal body and a great camera! There’s just no equivalent for the 20MP camera at this pricepoint at the moment so the honor 7 rules supreme in that department. There’s also the fingerprint scanner which is pretty useful and convenient for unlocking your phone. I have an honor 7 with me so look out for my product review in coming weeks.

The honor 7 is currently available in two colours, Mystery Gray and Fantasy Silver for RM1,399.00  at Vmall.my (*quick-charging charger sold separately).

Montblanc Figurado Creation Privée & 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Blue Limited Edition 100

[Luxury]

12322746_10154315648355278_5370578906214811532_o

 

Because standard is just too common. Sometimes you just want to have something special. Something you are passionate about. Something that says a lot about who you are. And standard items just won’t cut it. Enter the world of Montblanc Creation Privee which offers bespoke personalisation for discerning individuals.

The Montblanc Figurado Creation Privée piece is a one-of-a-kind writing instrument crafted from tobacco leaves, inspired by its owner’s passion for cigars. This piece was the result of the creative collaboration between Montblanc and its owner, the Figurado Creation Privée, and is custom-designed to mirror the shape and look of an exceptional cigar with the cap and barrel of the writing instrument covered in the finest cigar leaves.

For every Montblanc Creation Privée, designers and artisans work closely with the owner throughout the manufacturing process, interacting regularly on the most minute design details and offering progress updates via webcam. New techniques were explored to bring this dream to reality: from extracting the oil from the leaves before masterfully wrapping them around the metal body of the fountain pen, to protecting them with a cellulose coating similar to the one used for the restoration of old paintings, and covering them with an emulsion of several lacquers.

The Artisan Atelier designers have re-imagined a custom-designed banderol wrapped around the fountain pen. The instrument was crafted like a writing jewel using the finest materials and features a retractable Au 750 gold nib, a precious tourmaline in the cone, white gold fittings set with tourmaline stones and a Montblanc diamond on the cap top. The Montblanc diamond in this Creation Privée is unique, and takes its unusual shape from the brand emblem created over 100 years ago as a symbol of the highest standard of craftsmanship inspired by Europe’s highest mountain. With this creation, the Mont Blanc massif, with its six snow-white glaciers, has now been captured in diamond, crowning a one of a kind writing instrument.

 

12308011_10154315648370278_4976762920580818442_o

 

Because this precious writing instrument is best stored under constant climate conditions due to its organic nature, a special humidor-style presentation box was crafted from the finest wood with a glass viewing panel so the fountain pen can be admired without having to open the box. The writing instrument is safely stored inside a dedicated compartment alongside the owner’s collection of rare cigars, and an assortment of handcrafted accessories designed to accompany the cigar-shaped writing instrument including a traditional cigar holder, a tobacco leaf lighter and an ashtray.

Montblanc Creation Privée focuses as much on the process as it does on the finished product. Because being able to watch one’s own vision transformed into an outstanding writing instrument is very fascinating indeed, future owners of exclusive personal edition writing instruments crafter by Montblanc are invited to follow selected fascinating steps of the creative process via webcam witnessing in real-time the most experienced artisans, jewellers, diamond setters, engravers and nib finishers devoting all their passion and skill to creating a true masterpiece.

Montblanc 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Blue Limited Edition 100

 

12373283_10154358184045278_5375146704370276417_n

 

Montblanc pays tribute to the legendary Minerva chronographs with a brand new 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Blue Limited Edition 100, combining the reference in chronographs with the innovations of the present.

This exquisite timepiece pays tribute to the heritage of its manufacture in Villeret, founded under the name Minerva and acquired in 2007 by Montblanc. The prestigious Minerva manufacture was the reference in the field of chronographs and stopwatches during the 1920s and ‘30s. These legendary timekeepers were able to measure fractions of a second with the utmost precision — a feat of horological manufacturing for the time. Calibres such as the reference 13.20, launched in the 1920s, were among the very first to be conceived specifically for wristwatches, while the Calibre 19.14, unveiled in 1936, could measure the hundredth of a second. Montblanc’s split-second stopwatches also gained international recognition when they were used for timing the 1936 Winter Olympics, which reinforced the Maison’s reputation.

Most watchmakers outsourced their watch components throughout those two decades, whereas Minerva mastered the majority of its fabrication in-house, including its balance wheels and springs…and the same remains true today. This year, Montblanc continues this passion for fine watchmaking by honoring Minerva’s emblematic chronographs of yesteryear with a new manufacture 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Blue Limited Edition 100. Inspired by a monopusher chronograph from the 1930s, this new limited edition of 100 pieces captures the innovative spirit of the decade by uniting a number of the original design features with one of Villeret’s most elegant manufacture, hand-wound chronographs— the Calibre MB M16.29 — featuring a column wheel and a horizontal disc clutch.

 

12390970_10154358184055278_2612286652881056812_n

 

On the historical side, a fluted crown with a coaxial push-piece is reminiscent of the early crowns that were designed for easy grasp, while the elegant dial, with its large white luminescent Arabic numerals and a railway track, is also typical of the period. The small seconds at nine o’clock, the chronograph 30-minutes counter at three o’clock, the retro Montblanc logo, used from the beginning of the 21st century, and the large “cathedral” hands, with their cloisonné design filled with white Super-LumiNova®, all stay faithful to the original design.

Montblanc’s 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Blue Limited Edition 100 celebrates both traditional Swiss artisanal watchmaking and the rich heritage of Montblanc’s Villeret Manufacture, but offers a contemporary twist to the past with a large 44 mm stainless steel case with slightly enlarged lugs, to keep the proportions of the case the same. The addition of a deep blue dial with a tachymetric scale for measuring speeds over distance, along with a matching blue alligator strap, also contribute to reinforcing the vintage look of this historical timepiece.

Under the dial, Montblanc has equipped the 1858 Chronograph Tachymeter Blue Limited Edition 100 with its monopusher chronograph with column wheel and horizontal disc clutch that fills the whole 44 mm case. This movement shares the same architecture as its predecessor — the Minerva pocket watch Calibre 17.29 from 1929 — although it has been re-designed extensively with hand-finishings, including Côtes de Genève motifs, extensive bevelling, angling and snailing, all respecting the finest codes of Haute Horlogerie. Looking through the caseback, it is possible to see the iconic engraved “V” chronograph bridge, which has been a feature of Minerva chronographs since 1912, as well as the Minerva arrow-shaped chronograph hammer that can be found in almost all the modern Montblanc/Minerva movements. Other features include a large screw-regulated balance wheel and a swan-neck regulator. The calibre is comprised of 252 components and beats at a frequency of 2.5 Hertz with a power reserve of 50 hours.

 

Montblanc timepieces, writing instruments and other products are available at the Montblanc boutique at Level 2, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.

Montblanc Brand Ambassador Hugh Jackman at Watches&Wonders Hong Kong

Hugh Jackman flew in as a surprise special guest of Montblanc at the Watches&Wonders exhibition in Hong Kong in September 2016, unveilling the latest Montblanc timepieces and attending a glamorous gala dinner where he was the guest of honour.

The gala dinner was a luxurious and exclusive affair with dramatic allusion of a sky strewn with crystal stars threaded with constellations and navigational symbols enthralling guests as they made their way to long glowing tables. At the dining table, corked bottles served as placeholders and contained evocative coiled scrolls –menus that resembled timeworn treasure maps. The richly imaginative menu of four (4) courses recalled the different steps of Vasco da Gama’s trip; an Alaskan crab salad with crystal caviar and avocado cream, an oven-baked fillet of a 51-toothed fish and The Globe – Beyond 2015, a delicate dark chocolate sphere with cinnamon-infused caramel mousse, raspberry marshmallow and hot chocolate sauce.

Hugh Jackman revealed the newest edition to the Montblanc Heritage Chronométrie Dual Time Vasco Da Gama series at Watches&Wonders with the Limited Edition 238. The elegant 41mm watch features an 18K red gold-finished bezel and is driven by Montblanc’s in-house developed 29.19 automatic calibre complete with dual time complication. The functional movement can be viewed through a transparent caseback that displays an image of Vasco da Gama’s ship, the São Gabriel, next to the explorer’s signature. For this limited edition, just 238 pieces have been made. Each features, exclusively, a home-time counter at 12 o’clock decorated with a representation of the night-sky in the southern hemisphere and a adorned with a 3-D miniature map of the world.

At the gala, Hugh Jackman debuted the Montblanc Villeret Tourbillon Cylindrique Geosphères NightSky created to share the story of Da Gama’s spectacular method of navigation using the night skies. Made in the spirit as his legacy, with innovation, precision and determination, this highly complicated piece of haute horology became a showpiece on its release at this year’s SIHH, where it was presented in a warm red gold.

The 47mm timepiece displays a striking dial unifying a cylindrical tourbillon with two curved globes depicting the southern and northern hemispheres vividly rendered in hand-painted enamel. Home time is shown on a sub-dial reminiscent of a compass rose at 6 o’clock and operated by a small corrector in the case, while local time is indicated via two open-worked hands, adjustable using a large pusher at 4 o’clock. For Watches&Wonders, Montblanc debuted the timepiece in a limited edition 18K of which just 18 pieces were created.

DEFINE ‘Redefining Your Senses’ Party at Zebra Square 2020

[Events]

 

The last time we attended a DEFINE party back in June 2012 where we enjoyed myself with the contrasting experiences (you can read about that here – https://timchew.net/2012/06/02/defines-two-amazing-worlds-one-exclusive-party/)

Because of the memories of the previous party we were quite excited to attend this one which was entitled DEFINE ‘Redefining Your Senses’, held at Zebra Square KL on 13 April 2013.

DEFINE’s events are tailored to deliver extraordinary experiences that excite, inspire and amaze, and aims to provide avenues for invited guests to experience DEFINE’s profound passion for quality and the finer things in life.

There were two (2) areas and this was the main hall which was transformed into a futuristic white wonderland

Thanks to the nice folks at DEFINE we got a nice VIP table close to the front. Good thing we got there early as the place started to fill up before long.

Kronenbourg 1664 French Fashion Soiree 2011

We attended the Kronenbourg 1664 French Fashion Soiree on 13 April 2011 which was held at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. The runway setup was impressive – with a catwalk that mirrored a Parisian street and the iconic Eiffel Tower in the background. Hosted by Malaysian sweetheart Hannah Lo and graced by supermodel Amber Chia, the fashion showcase featured the new spring summer collection by Morgan de Toi, Celio and Thierry Mugler.

We’d like to thank Kronenbourg 1664 Malaysia for inviting Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers to their signature event
