More options for him
The stylish, well-travelled man has a new place to shop for his wardrobe staples. Berluti has opened its third boutique in Macau, touted as Asia’s gaming and entertainment capital, at The Shoppes at Four Seasons. The 94 sq m boutique exudes an air of quiet masculinity through design elements such as the wooden floors with traditional herringbone pattern done with oversized blonde-grey planks. The natural feel of the store extends to the plaster walls that are hand-finished in warm-grey tones.

The main attraction here, however, is the latest ready-to-wear collection, along with the shoes that Berluti is well known for, accessories and leather goods. To commemorate the opening, Berluti is offering a boutique-only exclusive: the Tersio alligator-skin pouch, available in a range of coloured patinas — Blu Prussien, Emerald Green, Blood and Mogano. It has an easy-to-hold handle and offers the convenience of three compartments that can hold bills, small devices and cards.

The classic cut
The Macallan has unveiled Classic Cut, a limited-edition single malt whisky that has been bottled to unlock its unique flavour profile. Matured exclusively in hand-picked, oak casks and seasoned with Oloroso sherry from Jerez, Spain, Classic Cut has the natural colour of an autumn sunset with aromas of creamy vanilla, sweet ginger and fresh sweet oak. With a satisfyingly long finish, this is a whisky to savour in your own time. The Macallan Classic Cut will be an annual release and each edition will embody its own unique flavour profile, making it truly collectable.

It comes in three versions: black, white and red.

Exceptionally real

Two in one
The Tonda Annual Calendar by Parmigiani Fleurier houses the highly respected calibre PF339 that features a retrograde annual calendar and a precision moon phase. The date for the Retrograde Annual Calendar is automatically adjusted based on the number of days in the month — 30 or 31 — but works on the basis of 29 days for February, whether or not it is a leap year. The timepiece can be removed from one’s wrist to re-establish the date manually with a mechanism. The moon phase is known as a “precision moon phase” because it needs correcting only once every 122 years. The timepiece needs a compensation for the difference between a classic lunar cycle (29 days and 12 hours) and the actual lunar cycle (29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 2.8 seconds). Available exclusively at The Hour Glass.

Olympic fever
The Olympic winter games may be over, but you can still own a keepsake. Omega’s NATO watch features straps that depict the national flags of competing nations. Show your support for the games with one (or all) of the 18 designs available. Omega has also added six new colours that are inspired by the colours of the Olympic rings. These NATO straps evolved from the leather and canvas straps used by British pilots, navigators and army personnel during World War II.
