Elite Traveler September-October 2018

elite traveler SEPT/OCT 2018 11

Welcome Time is a valuable commodity, both in terms of how we spend it and how we track it. Head to our deftly curated list of 2018’s Top 50 Watches on p75 for time well spent. Our resident watch expert, Roberta Naas, has carefully selected the crème de la crème of the horological world and categorized them into distinct sections such as astronomy, chronograph, minute repeaters and ultra-thins. We are very excited to introduce a dedicated Style section this issue, where we will explore the latest trends, highlight stylish destinations and what its equally stylish travelers pack, as well as the best watches and jewelry on earth. Also making its debut is our ladies’ watch page, where we will showcase howmarques respond to the growing number of women watch collectors. Whether it’s releasing a grand complication (sadly, still few and far between for women), launching a caliber in a ladies-only timepiece, creating new gemstone-setting methods or introducing a brand’s first-ever women’s watch, we are excited to see how the industry evolves. And our commitment to strong, original photography continues with our cover story, shot on location in New York City, and the addition of a regular accessories shoot. In our Influence section, Ian Callum, the doyen of car design, talks about the future and how electric and autonomous vehicles are the next big thing. We also hear from the man responsible for some of the world’s most recent record-breaking watch auctions, Aurel Bacs, and why he thinks watch collecting is undergoing something of a renaissance. For those looking to get away this fall, we’ve found the best suites in Paris, sourced exceptional yachts you don’t have to wait years to get your hands on, and compiled destination guides to Montreal, Mexico City, Basel, Vietnam and Vienna. We round off this edition with some stargazing, both from the serene seas of the Indian Ocean, and for the more intrepid among you — 200 miles above the planet. As always, if you want to comment on anything in this issue, drop us a line at editorial@elitetraveler.com
