Omega for sport lovers

 

Omega is definitely something for sport lovers. The new models feature beautifully symmetrical cases that now achieve a seamless integration with the bracelet. The patented screw-and-pin bracelet itself has been updated. The crown has changed too. Now, it is conical in shape with waved edges.

The dials of the Aqua Terra Ladies’ models remain clean and crisp, and are enhanced by diamond hour-markers. Mother-of-pearl dials remain our favourite, completed with 14 different refined colours with an opaline, sandy or lustrous finish. The “waterresistance” wording is now engraved on the caseback.

The Speedmaster Racing Master Chronometer collection made its début in 2017. The first model is stainless steel with a matt-black dial, a polished ceramic bezel with a brushed Liquidmetal® tachymeter scale.

New BMW Hybrid 330e – high-quality design

 

A new BMW Hybrid 330e iPerformance Business Exclusive is offering something new and old. The car is very sporty and speedy one, but also hybrid. This car makes you feel comfortable while all the interior design is modern, but the functionality is also good.

This new  BMW Hybrid is having automatic transmission and for example the turning circle is about 11 meters, which makes it easy to handle in the city.  The interior design with leather seats and with blue lights make it also very special. The new lightning helps you for example to find your lost mobile phone in the car during the dark winter hours.

But something new to consider also. The fuel tank is about 40 liters, which is not so much one can expect. With the electric power, the driving range would be about 20 kilometers. So these are good to keep in mind when driving on the road and thinking about the next station – and not all the stations are having electric power as an option. The combined CO2 is about 44 g/km according to the company.

The trunk floor space is about 370 liters due to the battery position, but the car´s top speed is about 225 km per hour. So, very nice to work with in the city and outside.  This car is a good example of the new development with new technology, but still keeping the style and design as expected.
