SUPERCOMPLICATION – THE MOST COMPLICATED WATCH EVER MADE

image001

Watches like Rolex and Tag Heuer with their six-figure price-tags and famous patrons are the mark of the super-rich. Sometimes however, an eccentric billionaire just can’t find the watch they need and have to call in the master craftsman of Patek Philippe. That’s exactly what Henry Graves Jr did in 1932.

He commissioned a watch that is both breathtaking in its design and mind blowing in its complication. This watch not only tells the time but it shows the night sky as seen from Graves apartment in New York. The celestial map rotates with the sky and maps the correct spacing and magnitude of the stars. It also chimes the sound of the Westminster chimes, maps the phases of the moon, has a perpetual calendar and can tell you the time of sunrise and sunset.

The watch was last wound over 40 years ago and since then hasn’t skipped a beat and is working exactly as it was intended. With a calendar that adjusts for leap years, stopwatch, alarm and its celestial map, some people have called this the world’s first supercomputer.

image005 image007

In a time when most of us look at our smart phones to tell the time, it’s hard to imagine quite how 900 tiny pieces of metal and springs could create a timepiece of such outstanding precision. It’s unlikely that the skills still exist to make an analogue watch of this character and as a result the Supercomplication would be the crown jewel of any watch collectors collection. It last changed hands in 1999 and sold for a cool $11 million. Of course Patek Philippe still make some of the worlds greatest watches for some of the world’s most exclusive clients so even if you can’t get your hands on this one, there will still be a breathtaking timepiece out there to add to your collection.

NOMA POP UP AT MANDARIN ORIENTAL, TOKYO

tokyo-offer-noma-exterior

You can now enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience at the World’s #1 restaurant according to San Pellegrino, a pop up of the famous danish restaurant Noma in Tokyo.

It all started in 2008 for René Redzepi, the Danish chef and owner of Noma. “I went to Kyoto for the first time at the invitation of chef Yoshihiro Murata – who is the equivalent of Bocuse in Japan – because he had been to Noma a few times and probably realised that I hadn’t a clue about Japanese food,” Redzepi recounts, “so he wanted to introduce me to it.” Redzepi worked for a week in Murata’s restaurant and at Nakamura and Hyotei, two other Michelin three-star restaurants in Kyoto.

Redzepi was captivated by Japanese cuisine, especially the formal, multicourse kaisekimeal, the origins of which lie in the tea ceremony and its strong links to Zen Buddhism. “The idea was to ensure that the bourgeoisie had full bellies before drinking pretty sturdy cups of tea,” he notes. “It’s a unique dining experience in a private home, which looks nondescript on the outside, then you go through to a perfectly tended Japanese garden.

According to the Mandarin Oriental management, the Noma pop up restaurant in Tokyo will be extended for two more weeks due to overwhelming demand. If you are in Tokyo or plan to travel there during January and February, the world’s #1 restaurant will be open from 9 January to 14 February 2015 except for Sundays.

You can now book the “Noma package”, an opportunity to enjoy a luxurious hotel in Tokyo and to boast that you visited Noma’s pop up in Japan.
