Investment alternatives: from Panerai's perpetual calendar to Chanel's pop-up store

Panerai presents this year a watch that is among the most demanding complications of the brand, Luminor Goldtech Perpetual Calendar. Designing a movement capable of automatically adjusting the day and date of each month while correcting for leap years is one of the examples of true watchmaking mastery. The new Luminor is a limited edition piece available in only 33 pieces whose buyers will be invited to a unique trip to Florence. The P.4100 automatic movement, created by Panerai, brings this watch to life that offers an intuitive adjustment that does not require tools, allowing the day, date, month and year to be set by turning the crown in any direction.

In addition, there are no limitations when it comes to making adjustments, even during the periods of the end of the month and around midnight. The GMT function works in conjunction with the hour and minute hands, with the subdial at 9 o'clock featuring the day/night indicator and small seconds. The chronometric precision and the regulation of the movements is ensured by a set that beats at 4Htz.

Each Luminor Goldtech Perpetual Calendar buyer is invited to the Panerai heritage headquarters, the city of Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Additionally, buyers receive access to an exclusive NFT created by an artist for the occasion. This will not only unlock information tailored to each traveler's itinerary, but will continue to serve the cardholder long after the experience ends.

Founded in Florence in 1860 as a watchmaking workshop, boutique and school, Panerai supplied precision instruments to the Italian Navy in general, and to the specialist diving corps in particular, for many decades.

The designs developed by Panerai at the time, including the Luminor and the Radiomir, were covered by the Military Secrets Law for many years, and were launched on the international market just after the Richemont group acquired the brand in 1997. Today Panerai develops and manufactures its movements and watches at its Neuchâtel Manufacture. These last few years are a perfect fusion of the style and history of Italian design with the experience of Swiss watchmaking.

Chanel's newest and most desired pop-up boutique has just opened its doors in East Hampton, New York. That's how this classic 2,500-square-foot, gray-tiled boutique has reimagined itself to embrace a perfectly Parisian summer fantasy.

Distributed on two floors, the store embraces all the spirit of the house reinforced with glorious Hamptons for the excellence of its gardens on the outside and with a refreshing interior. A true plunge into Chanel à la plage.

Decorated in the iconic black, white and gold color palette that evokes the legendary salon of Gabrielle Chanel in her apartment at 31 rue Cambon in Paris, it is conceived as a boutique where you can spend time, or hours, quietly. The second floor, reserved for private appointments, is arranged around center-facing cream linen sofas topped with white and gold Chanel tweed cushions.

And in the former, customers can experience the latest objects of desire from the house, from diamond-embellished suits, gold tweeds and elegant evening options from Métiers d'Art for the 2021/2022 season to swimwear and colorful coats from the Coco Beach collection, as well as small leather goods, jewelry and the entire 2022 summer and fall sunglasses collection.

This unrepeatable space also presents the latest creations of fine jewelry and fine watchmaking from the French firm. They are really unique pieces.

Launched in 2015, CamperLab is the youth subsidiary of the Mallorcan firm that takes a playful approach to design under the creative direction of Achilles Ion Gabriel. One of the great successes of the collection is the iconic Hastalavista sandal. Made with a comfortable viscoelastic foam, it is the perfect accessory for those who do not want to go unnoticed even on the beach.

Bold modern cuts and bold CamperLab colors reinvigorate the simplicity and sophistication of this item that comes with matching tabi-toe socks made from organic cotton.

Clara Ars Mágica (Clara Macías Carcedo, a Spaniard who claims to have a Mexican soul) is the designer and artist, with a special inclination towards performance, who surprised everyone with her “furry lingerie” on May 8.

With her work of creative feminism she seeks to transform the feminine reality. Among other things, she claims that women's hair is beautiful, emphasizing its hygienic and protective function and inviting all
