Football for Friendship: Brazilian National Team Received Nine Values Cup

  [23-March-2019]  

PORTO, Portugal, March 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at Dragão stadium in Porto, the Young Ambassadors of Gazprom's International Children's Social programme "Football for Friendship" presented the main award of the programme â€�“ the Nine Values Cup â€�“ to the Brazilian national football team. This unique trophy symbolizes the Nine Values of the Football for Friendship â€�“ friendship, equality, fairness, health, peace, devotion, victory, traditions, and honour. The award ceremony took place on the threshold of a friendly match between Panama and Brazil.

Walter Feldman holding Nine Values Cup

The following Young Ambassadors of the Football for Friendship have attended the award ceremony: Swan Drame (13 y.o., France), Catarina Barata (13 y.o., Portugal), Miguel Borges (19 y.o., Portugal), Denis Aladev (13 y.o., Russia). They told the Secretary General of the Brazilian national team Mr. Walter Feldman and the Manager of Technical Development and Social Resp! onsibilit y of the Team Mr. Diogo Netto about the history and the meaning of this special trophy.

Young Players and the Young Journalists from 211 countries and regions of the world took part in the open vote that has decided that the Brazilian national football team deserves the Nine Values Cup. Football for Friendship participants have acknowledged the Brazilian national team as the most socially responsible from 32 national football teams, which participated in 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.

The Brazilian national football team is the fifth winner of the Nine Values Cup. From 2015, the trophy has been presented to football teams of Barcelona (Spain), Bayern Munich (Germany), Al Wahda (Syria) and Real Madrid (Spain).

This International Children's Social programme Football for Friendship has been implemented by Gazprom since 2013. The main values promoted by the programme's participants are friendship, equality, fairness, health, peace, devotion, victory, traditions, and honour. Its participants are Young Players (boys and girls including those with disabilities and special needs) and Young Journalists covering the events of Football for Friendship within the International Children's Press Centre. The final events of the Football for Friendship programme will take place in Madrid from May 28 to June 2, 2019.

"The Nine Values Cup is a completely new, genuinely unusual trophy that is presented for the adherence to the values of the programme, such as fairness, devotion, and traditions. These are the milestones extremely close to everyone including both children and adults over the planet. This year, for the first time a team from Latin America was awarded the trophy â€�“ yet another proof that there are no borders for football and friendship!" commented Mr. Walter Feldman, General Secretary of the Brazil National Team.

"I am very happy that the Football for Friendship programme gave me an opportunity to meet the members of the national team and even award them the Nine Values Cup in person! I think that one cannot become a successful person without following the universal human values. The more people in the world will discuss, and attract the attention to them, the better our life will become. The Nine Values Cup is a symbol of friendship, unity, and responsible attitude towards the society we live in for the children all around the world," says Catarina Barata, a Young Journalist of Football for Friendship.

New Boundaries: Hublot Launches the Official ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Watch and Announces Cricketing Legend Kevin Pietersen as a New Friend of the Brand

  [23-March-2019]  

BASEL, Switzerland, March 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --


Classic Fusion Chronograph ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

The limited-edition Classic Fusion Chronograph ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 marks Hublot's role as Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of this summer's ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in England and Wales

To keep updated, follow: #ClassicFusionCricket #HublotLovesCricket 

"Timing is vital in cricket. Cricket is a skillful, passionate game that brings people together all over the world. Hublot shares this global passion and is proud and excited to unveil the official ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 watch and to be working with cricketing legend Kevin Pietersen." Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO HUBLOT

 

Hublot, the Swiss watchmaker, is passionate about sport and is the first watch brand to work with the ICC (International Cricket Council) and to partner with its elite international cricketing events, including this summer's ICC Cricket World Cup, which will be held in England and Wales.

The Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is the second cricket watch created by Hublot. The first was produced in limited series for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, which was won by Australia.

The new watch is a celebration of cricket and picks up from the original Hublot Cricket World Cup watch produced four years ago.

It features a number of characterful design touches to mark the association. The grey and red detailing found in the dial, satin-finished and polished ceramic bezel and leather and rubber strap are inspired by the colour palette of this year's event logo; the hands of the twin counters for the chronograph minutes and small seconds are shaped like cricket bats; the triple appliqué hour marker at 12 o'clock mirrors the three wooden stumps guarded by a batsman; and the sapphire case back is decorated with the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 logo.

The 45mm satin-finished and polished titanium case houses HUB1155, a skeletonised automatic chronograph calibre with a date at 6 o'clock. Only 100 pieces will be made.

At Baselworld 2019, Hublot is also announcing a new Friend of the Brand, former England captain Kevin Pietersen. Kevin was an explosive batsman and one of the outstanding cricketers of his generation. He played the last of his 104 Tests in 2014, and scored over 8,000 runs at an average of 47 during his international Test career.

Hublot has been working in cricket since it partnered with the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Today, the Swiss Watchmaker also counts Australian cricketing legend Michael Clarke as an Official Ambassador, and Indian limited overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma as a Friend of the Brand. In February, Hublot announced former England Ashes-winning captain and international cricket commentator Michael Vaughn as a Friend of the Brand.

Hublot is the Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of this summer's festival of cricket, which begins on May 30 when the tournament hosts and top-ranked side England take on South Africa. During the tournament's six-week schedule this summer, the 10 qualifying teams will all play each other in a round-robin format. In total, there will be 48 matches. The final will be played on July 14 at Lord's in London, the iconic home of cricket. Hublot will time each 50-over match.

Cricket is one of the world's most popular sports. The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 attracted an estimated global audience of more than one billion. Last year, the ICC published a research project that revealed that more than 300 million people participate in the sport worldwide.

HUBLOT

Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovation, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This "Art of Fusion" stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012.

The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth.

Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to "Be First, Different and Unique", the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratch-resistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico, Meca-10, Tourbillon).

HUBLOT is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events of our times (FIFA World Cup[TM], UEFA Champions League[TM], UEFA EURO[TM] and Ferrari) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Pelé).

Hublot e Ferrari aprono un nuovo capitolo nella loro partnership con l'orologio Classic Fusion Ferrari GT

  [2019-03-22]  

Classic Fusion Ferrari GT

BALE, Svizzera, 22 marzo 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Fin da quando hanno annunciato la loro collaborazione nel 2011, Hublot e Ferrari hanno sempre creato orologi con design e motorizzazioni unici. Ogni nuova edizione presenta un nuovo stile. Quest'anno Hublot presenta un pezzo aereo ed elegante correlato all'universo "Gran Turismo". Il lancio dell'orologio Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, il cui design estremamente innovativo integra il nuovo movimento di manifattura UNICO in una carrozzeria dalle linee distinte e dinamiche, vede Hublot e Ferrari scrivere un nuovo capitolo della loro partnership.

Hublot-Classic-Fusion-Ferrari-GT-3D-Carbon

To keep updated, follow: #ClassicFusionFerrariGT #HublotFerrari

La lunga collaborazione tra Hublot e Ferrari è unica nel suo genere e fonte inesauribile di ispirazione creativa che intreccia il destino di queste due prestigiose case. Dal Big Bang Ferrari all'MP-05 LaFerrari o al Techframe, la corsa all'innovazione e alla raffinatezza racchiude l'inarrestabile slancio creativo che anima il Centro Design Ferrari e il team Hublot. Fin dall'inizio della loro unione, Hublot e Ferrari sono stati coinvolti soprattutto nel mondo delle corse e della Formula 1 con le edizioni del Big Bang Ferrari. Dal 2017, con il Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph, che ha celebrato il 70° anniversario della Ferrari, Hublot e Ferrari sono entrate nell'universo GT e quest'anno si spingono ancora oltre in questo mondo che ha sempre definito una filosofia di viaggio che coniuga tradizione, eleganza e perfezione tecnica.

"Guidare su lunghe distanze ad alta velocità, nel comfort e con stile". Questa è la sintesi dello spirito "Gran Turismo", termine che definisce anche una categoria di auto di lusso di serie limitata e ad altissime prestazioni. Il mondo GT è fatto di innovazione e raffinatezza, con la passione e l'amore per la meccanica, le prestazioni e l'innovazione: valori condivisi da Ferrari e Hublot. Come vibrante omaggio alle vetture "Gran Turismo", Hublot e Ferrari hanno deciso quest'anno e per la prima volta di unire il loro senso di creatività estetica e innovazione meccanica in un Classic Fusion, un telaio di orologeria al tempo stesso tradizionale e moderno, in linea con i codici stilistici dell'universo GT. Altra novità: il famoso movimento di manifattura UNICO è stato inserito in una cassa Classic Fusion del diametro di 45 mm. Si tratta del secondo dei calibri cronografici creati da Hublot, presentato nel 2018 (HUB1280). Protetto da quattro brevetti, questo movim! ento cron ografico flyback a carica automatica, con frequenza di 4 Hz (28'800 A/h) e ruota a colonne visibile dal lato del quadrante, presenta caratteristiche tecniche degne di un campione, in particolare con uno spessore di soli 6,75 mm e una riserva di carica di 3 giorni, molto utile nella vita quotidiana. Il nuovissimo Classic Fusion Ferrari GT è disponibile con tre diverse casse: in titanio (edizione limitata a 1.000 pezzi), in King Gold (edizione limitata a 500 pezzi) e in carbonio 3D (edizione limitata a 500 pezzi).

Novità assoluta nel mondo dell'alta orologeria, il carbonio 3D è un composito a matrice polimerica (PMC) realizzato con fibre tridimensionali. Questo materiale altamente tecnologico, molto apprezzato negli sport motoristici, presenta eccezionali qualità di resistenza e, nel caso del Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, offre un leggero ma robusto strato protettivo al movimento di manifattura UNICO. Progettato dal "Centro Stile Ferrari", il nuovo Classic Fusion Ferrari GT è fedele all'immagine delle creazioni che escono dai laboratori di Maranello. Il suo design è molto contemporaneo: Hublot ha lavorato sul motore e la Ferrari sulla carrozzeria. Una delle caratteristiche principali del design del Classic Fusion Ferrari GT è la cassa, concepita come un vero e proprio elemento sospeso concentrico che esalta la presenza del quadrante e il sofisticato processo di lavorazione. A questo scopo, i designer del "Centro Stile Ferrar! i" hanno messo a frutto la loro esperienza, costruendo ponti tra il design automobilistico e la motorizzazione orologiera, dimostrando così di amare il proprio lavoro e di superare loro stessi in progetti diversi da quelli riguardanti le automobili.

Completamente diverso, ma decisamente complementare al Techframe lanciato nel 2017, il Classic Fusion Ferrari GT è un orologio per gli appassionati di meccanica eccelsa che vogliono esibire uno stile contemporaneo e raffinato. Il quadrante è trasparente grazie all'impiego di vetro zaffiro e svela la meccanica di alta precisione del calibro UNICO HUB1280, con il famoso Cavallino rampante che compare a ore 12. Ogni dettaglio è stato sottoposto a meticolose rifiniture come il filo rosso intorno al vetro zaffiro con trattamento antiriflesso, riferimento stilistico al leggendario colore Ferrari. I cinturini del Ferrari GT Classic Fusion sono stati finemente realizzati in caucciù nero e rivestiti in pelle Schedoni, come i sedili delle auto da corsa di Maranello. Rotondo come un tachimetro da corsa, il nuovo Classic Fusion Ferrari GT è un pezzo per il nostro tempo, con particolare attenzione all'ergonomia e uno spessore di soli 13,15 mm, una rarità per un cronografo flybac! k integra to. Questo orologio dal design innovativo, arioso e di rara eleganza apre un nuovo importante capitolo nella partnership di eccellenza tra Hublot e Ferrari.

HUBLOT

Fondata in Svizzera nel 1980, HUBLOT si distingue per il suo approccio innovativo e pioneristico, iniziato con la scelta di combinare oro e caucciù: l'"Arte della Fusione" nasce dall'immaginazione visionaria del suo Presidente, Jean-Claude Biver ed è animata dalla forza propulsiva di Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO del brand dal 2012.

La nascita dell'iconico modello Big Bang nel 2005, vincitore di numerosi premi, ha aperto la strada a nuove collezioni di punta (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang) con complicazioni semplici o più sofisticate, che testimoniano l'eccezionale DNA della manifattura orologiera svizzera, protagonista di una crescita folgorante.

Attenta a preservare i suoi savoir-faire tradizionali e guidata dalla filosofia "Be First, Different and Unique", la Maison svizzera dà prova di una costante ricerca d'avanguardia, attraverso i suoi materiali innovativi (l'oro inscalfibile Magic Gold, le ceramiche dai colori vivaci e lo zaffiro), e la creazione di movimenti di manifattura (Unico, Meca-10, Tourbillon).

Oggi HUBLOT si proietta verso un futuro visionario per una Maison di Alta Orologeria: quello della collaborazione con i grandi eventi del nostro tempo (FIFA World CupTM, UEFA Champions LeagueTM, UEFA EUROTM e Ferrari) e con i più brillanti ambasciatori del momento (Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Pelé).

Hublot and Ferrari Open a New Chapter in Their Collaboration With the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT Watch

  [22-March-2019]  



Classic Fusion Ferrari GT

BALE, Switzerland, March 22, 2019  /PRNewswire/ -- Since the very start of their collaboration in 2011, Hublot and Ferrari have always created watches with a unique design and motorisation. Each new edition introduces a new style. This year, Hublot presents an elegant and contemporary piece that draws inspiration from the "Gran Turismo" universe. The launch of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT watch â€�“ with its extremely innovative design which integrates the new UNICO manufacture movement in a body with distinctive and dynamic lines - sees Hublot and Ferrari write a new chapter in their collaboration.

Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT 3D Carbon

To keep updated, follow: #ClassicFusionFerrariGT #HublotFerrari

The long-term collaboration between Hublot and Ferrari is one of a kind and an endless source of creative inspiration that builds on the common values these two prestigious houses share. The constant drive for innovation and refinement behind the unstoppable creative impetus of both Ferrari and Hublot has come to life in the Big Bang Ferrari, the MP-05 LaFerrari and the Techframe. The collaboration first drew inspiration from the racing world and Formula 1, with the Big Bang Ferrari editions. In 2017, Hublot and Ferrari expanded to the universe of GT, with the Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph specifically created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Ferrari. This year the collaboration goes a step further in this world, which has always defined a travel philosophy that combines tradition, elegance and technical perfection.

"Driving over long distances at high speed in comfort and with style." This is what the "Gran Turismo" spirit is about. The term also defines a category of limited-production, very high-performance luxury cars. The GT world is one of innovation and refinement, with a passion for mechanics performance and innovation and an appreciation for elegance and beauty. To pay homage to the "Grand Touring" cars, Hublot and Ferrari have now combined for the first time their sense of aesthetic creativity and mechanical innovation in a Classic Fusion, a watchmaking chassis that is both traditional and modern, in line with the stylistic codes of the GT universe.

Another first: the famous UNICO manufacture movement has been integrated into a 45-mm-diameter Classic Fusion case. This is the second of Hublot's own chronograph calibres, unveiled in 2018 (HUB1280). Protected by four patents, this self-winding flyback chronograph movement, with 4 Hz frequency (28'800 A/h) and a column wheel that can be seen from the dial side, has technical specifications that are fit for a champion with, in particular, a thickness of only 6.75 mm and 3-day power reserve that is very useful for day-to-day life. The entirely new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is available in three different cases: Titanium (limited edition of 1,000 pieces), King Gold (limited edition of 500 pieces) and 3D Carbon (limited edition of 500 pieces).

All-new in the Fine Watchmaking world, 3D Carbon is a polymer matrix composite (PMC) made of three-dimensional fibres. This high-tech material, which is very popular in motorsport, has outstanding qualities of resistance and, in the case of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, offers a lightweight but solid layer of protection, to the UNICO manufacture movement. Designed by the "Centro Stile Ferrari", the new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT draws inspiration from the GT designed and crafted in the Maranello workshops. Its design is very contemporary; Hublot worked on the motor and Ferrari on the body. One of the main design features of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is the case, conceived as a true concentrical suspended element that enhances the dial presence and the sophisticated manufacturing making process. For this purpose, the "Centro Stile Ferrari" designers applied their expertise, building bridges between automotive design and watchmaking moto! risation, and thereby proving that they love to work and surpass themselves on other projects than those linked to cars.

Entirely different yet resolutely complementary to the Techframe launched in 2017, the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is a watch for lovers of fine mechanical pieces who want to display a contemporary and refined style. The dial is transparent thanks to the use of sapphire crystal and reveals the high-precision mechanics of the UNICO HUB1280 calibre, with the famous Prancing Horse appearing at 12 o'clock. Each and every detail has been subjected to meticulous finishing touches like the red thread around the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, a stylistic reference to the legendary Ferrari colour. The straps of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT have been subtly created in black rubber and dressed in Schedoni leather, like the seats of the Maranello historical race cars. Round like a racing tachometer, the new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is a piece for our time, with particular attention paid to the ergonomics and a thickness of only 13.15 mm, a rarity for an integrated fly! back chro nograph. This innovatively designed, airy watch of rare elegance opens a major new chapter in the partnership of excellence between Hublot and Ferrari.

HUBLOT

Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovation, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This "Art of Fusion" stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012.

The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth.

Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to "Be First, Different and Unique", the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratch-resistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico, Meca-10, Tourbillon).

HUBLOT is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events of our times (FIFA World Cup™, UEFA Champions League™, UEFA EURO™ and Ferrari) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Pelé).

PRN: The Ministry of Defence Selects Bremont as Official Luxury Watch Partner to Her Majesty's Armed Forces Fri, 22 Mar 2019 13:29:47 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/535051.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/535051.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

The Ministry of Defence Selects Bremont as Official Luxury Watch Partner to Her Majesty's Armed Forces

  [22-March-2019]  

Approved by Her Majesty's Armed Forces

HENLEY-ON-THAMES, England, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bremont is proud to enter into a partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) honouring Her Majesty's Armed Forces. Through this partnership, Bremont will become the sole luxury watch producer allowed to legitimately use the signs, symbols and Heraldic Badges of all three services. This will mark the first time that civilians can purchase official Bremont Military timepieces. Consequently, Bremont will be releasing a new military inspired range of watches incorporating the emblems of the Royal Navy, British Army and the Royal Air Force. The new range can be viewed online - https://www.bremont.com/collections/the-armed-forces-collection

The Bremont Armed Forces Collection â€�“ Arrow
The Bremont Armed Forces Collection â€�“ Broadsword
The Bremont Armed Forces Collection â€�“ Argonaut
Bremont Logo

Bremont's well-respected heritage and reputation within the military, specifically with the British military, made the British watchmaker the natural partner of choice for the MoD. Bremont has created numerous special-order projects at the request of personnel from all branches of the British armed forces and is widely recognised throughout for its discretion, its patriotism and its reputation for supplying products that are fit for purpose.

"It is difficult to think of a more significant recognition that has been received by Bremont in the 12 years since we sold our first watch," said Nick English, who co-founded the brand in 2002 with his brother, Giles.

"The fact that so many British military personnel from across the three forces have chosen to privately buy bespoke Bremont watches as a means of demonstrating their pride for the regiments, squadrons and ships companies in which they serve has long been extremely humbling to us and we are, of course, immensely honoured to now be an official partner of Her Majesty's Armed Forces."

Bremont ambassador Brian Wood MC comments, "A medal glitters, but it also casts a shadow. My story is a journey through adversity, I'm proud to have served my country and to have earned the Military Cross for my actions in Iraq. I've been tested beyond battle and now I'm proud to be partnering with Bremont, to be testing their watches beyond endurance. I know just how proud Nick and Giles English are of their military work to date and I can't think of a more fitting watch company for the Ministry of Defence than Bremont who are at the heart of bringing back watchmaking to the UK. Being 'Tested Beyond Endurance' couldn't be a more apt strapline for both military personnel and undoubtedly for this watch collection too."

To launch the new partnership, Bremont has developed the Armed Forces Collection which comprises three new MoD-inspired chronometer-rated timepieces. Whilst there will be a different design dedicated to each of the military branches, all will feature the collective historic and Heraldic Badges of the three services clearly stamped on the case- backs. As with all Bremont watches, these will be produced at the company's headquarters in Henley-on-Thames, UK.

The Armed Forces Collection draws inspiration from the original 'Dirty Dozen' watches, a series of timepieces commissioned for the British Army during WW2 when Britain's Ministry of Defence needed watches to issue to military personnel. Very strict performance specifications, for the time, were set which included waterproofing, regulation to chronometer specification, luminous markings on the dial and a robust case construction. In homage to these criteria Bremont has designed three stylish and sturdy timepieces that reflect the needs of Her Majesty's Armed Forces today. Taking design cues from the original 1940s models, produced by various brands around at that time, Bremont has developed a new, more traditional two-piece case with a screw-in, stamped case back.

The Bremont Broadsword is a contemporary take on the three handed 'Dirty Dozen' watch design which houses the chronometer rated BE-95-2AV movement inside its two-piece 40mm hardened steel case as well as a sub-seconds hand at 6 o'clock. Multiple layers of luminous paint on the hands and dial complete the original specification for the British Army.

The Bremont Arrow is a 42mm cased mono-pusher chronograph. The pusher at 2 o'clock on the two-piece hardened steel case will start, stop and reset the stopwatch on the chronometer rated BE-51AE movement. The Arrow plays on the same British military DNA as the Broadsword but is aimed at the airman with its chronograph functionality, a necessity for any timed mission. The sub-dial at 9 o'clock is a running seconds, and the chronograph has elapsed minutes on the 3 o'clock counter. Engineered with the utmost integrity, the Arrow is steadfastly accurate, durable and legible.

The final model in the new range is the Argonaut, a name inspired by Greek mythology and synonymous with Navy history having appeared on Commissioned ships for nearly 250 years. This exciting new 42mm hardened steel-cased military dive watch, houses a three-handed chronometer rated BE-92AV movement. The internal rotating bezel is operated by a crown at 4 o'clock, and readability on both the hands and dial have been crucial in the design process. With minutes being so critical in the marine environment, the highly legible orange minute hand can be seen very clearly and is filled with custom green Super-LumiNova®.

The Bremont Armed Forces Collection aims to appeal to both military personnel and civilians alike, delivering a range that combines the need for performance and reliability.

A Captain Royal Navy said, "As a Royal Naval Officer, I am pleased that the wider community can share with us the pride and passion and that is the ethos of the Royal Navy. We too have been tried and tested and never found wanting. Always there, always ready and ever vigilant in protecting our Nation's interests."

A Colonel British Army said, "The Army's relentless drive for innovation is encapsulated by our exceptional soldiers who are always at the cutting edge of military performance. Bremont shares this drive for innovation exemplified by these new, British mechanical timepieces showcasing how Bremont too strives to be at the cutting edge of British engineering."

A Group Captain Royal Air Force said, "21st Century airpower relies on dedicated people, cutting edge technology and, of course, precise timekeeping. The Bremont Arrow encapsulates that spirit of the skies and new horizons."

BDI on Extension of Brexit Deadline: The Suspense Continues

  [22-March-2019]  

BERLIN, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the decision by the European Council, BDI chief executive Joachim Lang says: "The suspense continues."

  • "The suspense continues. The extension of the deadline means that the agonizing uncertainty for business goes on. Our companies need clarity. And for this, the British government must conclude the Brexit process as quickly as possible.
  • "The EU has once again stretched out its hand to the United Kingdom. The ball remains in the British court. The House of Commons in London needs to consider the alternatives and pass the withdrawal agreement. Whether or not the deadline extension will lead to an orderly withdrawal is very uncertain. A genuine solution to the difficulties must be found.
  • "Europe has more to worry about than just Britain's withdrawal. The EU must support industry as an engine of growth and prosperity. It must decide to react rapidly to market-distorting interventions, in particular from China, using the tools of the market economy."

The Federation of German Industries (BDI) is the umbrella organization of German industry and industry-related services. It speaks for 35 trade associations and more than 100,000 enterprises with around 8 million employees in Germany and 3.5 million employees in other countries.

Tan Mujiang Comes to Canada

  [22-March-2019]  

JURONG, China, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On March 8th, Tan Mujiang's first flagship store (H002) in Canada opened at the Scarborough shopping center in Toronto. The shopping mall is home to 230 shops and Tan Mujiang is situated in the busiest area of the mall, adjacent to Pandora and other international brand stores.

H002, Tan Mujiang’s flagship shop in Canada

On the opening day, Tan Mujiang attracted many customers into the store with its eye-catching Chinese logo and a lute performance. Many Chinese were surprised to see traditional Chinese wooden combs abroad, and many locals were impressed by the oriental charm and exquisite craftsmanship of the combs.

PRN: Call to Action by EU Today on Mineral Wool Health Threats Fri, 22 Mar 2019 09:56:36 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/535020.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/535020.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Call to Action by EU Today on Mineral Wool Health Threats

  [22-March-2019]  

BRUSSELS, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- EU Today, a leading platform for European news, has today called for three actions to be taken to protect construction workers and homeowners from the health risks posed by mineral wool, also known as Man-made Vitreous Fibres (MMVF).

This call for action from policymakers follows a 2018 report published by EU Today that detailed the risks to health caused by the material, which is seen as the successor to asbestos, which was banned in 1999.  That report explained that after initially being classified in the past by the WHO and International Agency on the Research on Cancer as carcinogenic and hazardous to humans, mineral wool was declassified as a carcinogenic in 2002.  However, the report found that mineral wool may "pose similar risks to asbestos."  There was particular concern that past tests on mineral wool gave misleading results because a component was missing from the test samples and the product was not tested as it is actually sold and used.  Health concerns relate not only to carcinogenicity. Mineral wool is known to cause skin and lung abnormalities.

Speaking in Brussels, Gary Cartwright, the Editor of EU Today and author of the 2018 report said: "There are three very obvious steps that must be taken.  The first action is the re-testing of the product. There is evidence of the carcinogenic hazards of mineral wool, as attested by the WHO and IARC classification in 1988. The subsequent declassification in 2002 was based on tests carried out on products that did not accurately represent mineral wool as they are used commercially and by consumers. There is therefore a clear and urgent need for retesting these products as they are used in practice."

Mr Cartwright went on to explain that the second action required is health and safety legislation: "Unlike on building sites, for example, there is currently no legal requirement for employers to enforce rules on the use of protective clothing by employees. There is also anecdotal evidence that workers in the construction industry are not adequately informed about the potential health hazards of mineral wool. There is a clear and urgent need for these shortcomings to be addressed, possibly in the form of EU legislation."

Mr Cartwright detailed the third action to be taken as product labelling, explaining: "Consumer goods such as alcohol and tobacco are currently subject to strict requirements to inform about potential health risks on product labels. There is a strong argument for mineral wool, whether sold through the trade, or to consumers, to carry similar warnings, displayed prominently on all packaging."

He concluded by saying that policymakers have a duty to act now and protect people from the health risks that mineral wool poses, explaining: "With asbestos, essentially mineral wool's older cousin, we waited 99 years from discovering it was dangerous to actually banning it.  Think of all the lives lost in that time.  We must learn from that and act more swiftly and firmly around the threat of mineral wool."

PRN: Bacardi and Lonely Whale Urge Unicode to Remove All Emoji Plastic Straws on Behalf of One Bold Sea Turtle Sydney Fri, 22 Mar 2019 09:40:25 +0100 http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/535012.html http://comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/535012.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Bacardi and Lonely Whale Urge Unicode to Remove All Emoji Plastic Straws on Behalf of One Bold Sea Turtle Sydney

  [22-March-2019]  

Timed Against World Water Day, Bacardi and Lonely Whale Announce Next Phase of #TheFutureDoesntSuck Campaign by Enlisting Comedian and Activist Daniel Franzese to Deliver Sydney's Message

HAMILTON, Bermuda, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Family-owned Bacardi Limited, the largest privately held spirits company in the world, and Lonely Whale, an award-winning incubator for courageous ideas that drive impactful change on behalf of our ocean, announced today a splashy partnership with one brave sea turtle Sydney to put an end to all plastic straw emoji usage. Giving a platform and voice to Sydney, Bacardi and Lonely Whale have issued a "cease and de-sip" letter to the Unicode Consortium, the organ! ization t hat manages the emoji catalog, requesting the removal of plastic straws from the soda cup and cocktail emojis. The initiative is just one of many ways Bacardi and Lonely Whale are working together to ensure #TheFutureDoesntSuck, with the goal to eliminate one billion single-use plastic straws by 2020.

"Marine life is heavily affected by plastic waste and refusing the single-use plastic straw is one way each of us can take action," said Jacob Briars, global advocacy director for Bacardi. "With billions of emojis being used globally each day, we want to help drive a cultural change where our online world promotes a plastic-free, marine-friendly straw, or strawless options for drinks, just as we at Bacardi continue to do so IRL." 

Bacardi and Lonely Whale were eager to help Sydney shed light on the threat of plastic straw pollution, showing how one man's straw is another turtle's backyard trash. To ensure all of her friends on land could understand her turtle talk, Sydney worked with Bacardi and Lonely Whale to enlist comedian and activist Daniel Franzese to deliver her message. 

"I was honored when Sydney first floated her anti-emoji straw campaign by me, mainly because I shared the same salty feelings about single-use plastic straws," said Daniel Franzese. "I challenge not only Unicode, but everyone to join and pledge so we can ensure a bright future for Sydney and all her marine life friends."

To give avid supporters an alternative emoji solution, Bacardi and Lonely Whale have released a collection of Giphy stickers inspired by the campaign. Bacardi and Lonely Whale hope that by removing plastic straws from digital usage, they too can shift cultural norms around drinking with single-use plastic straws altogether.

"Many have made a commitment to eliminate single-use plastic straws yet the emojis we use in social media haven't kept up with our commitment to an ocean free from plastic. What better way to delete the notion of using single-use plastic straws than by taking it out of the icons more than 90 percent of the world's online population uses every day to communicate?" said Dune Ives, executive director of Lonely Whale. "We hope that as we urge Unicode against including digital straws, consumers will sign #TheFutureDoesntSuck pledge to help us remove real plastic straws."

Since joining forces in 2018, Bacardi Limited and Lonely Whale have collaborated to spread the message of reducing the use of single-use plastic straws through brand activations, influencer events, social media and more. Together, they've recruited customers to join the pledge through campaigns in the United States, UK, China and New Zealand. Bacardi also committed to a full review of its supply chain to eliminate the use of plastic where possible while developing recyclable and biodegradable alternatives. Both Bacardi and Lonely Whale are supportive of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, comprised of goals and targets set to stimulate action in areas of critical importance for both humanity and the planet.

To join this global campaign, visit www.thefuturedoesntsuck.org. There, individuals can declare their pledge to ensuring #TheFutureDoesntSuck by committing to go plastic-straw free and recruit restaurants, hotels, bars and other venues to do the same. Establishments can register their commitment and challenge others to take the pledge so that together we can all ensure #TheFutureDoesntSuck.

WeChat Pay Supports Merchants Expanding Businesses by Bringing its Ecosystem to the World

  [22-March-2019]  

HONG KONG, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- WeChat Pay today unveils its latest strategy for cross-border payment business at the WeChat Pay Overseas Partner Conference 2019. Themed on 'One for Billion', the conference encourages service providers and merchants across the world to expand their businesses by reaching out and engaging the Chinese travelers through WeChat ecosystem. Close to 1,600 guests including representatives from global merchants and outstanding service providers from China and overseas, gathered in Hong Kong to explore the new opportunities with WeChat Pay's smart ecosystem.

WeChat Pay smart life scenarios experience at the conference

"In the past five years, the progress of mobile payment technology development in China has received global attention, and the digitization of all walks of life has continued at a rapid pace. The real driving force behind this is not just a payment tool, but also the supports of third-party service providers from the various industries. They are the true representatives of digital innovation in China," said Li Peiku, Vice-President of WeChat Pay. The wide variety of functions available within the WeChat Ecosystem will help overseas merchants to smoothly ! accelerat e the digitalization process, in order to better serve Chinese tourists overseas.

According to the latest data released at the conference, in 2018, the monthly average transaction volume saw an increase of 500% year-on-year, while the total transaction value increased 400%. Meanwhile, the number of service providers witnessed a year-on-year increase 300%, and the number of merchants accepting WeChat Pay increased 700%. WeChat Pay is now available in 49 markets outside of the Chinese mainland, supporting cross-border payment transactions in 16 currencies.

WeChat Pay Unveils Five Key Areas of its Cross-Border Business

Making a purchase is not only about payment. The entire experience throughout the consumer journey is important to conclude the transaction. WeChat Pay is looking closely into the overall customer experience, and exploring more smart living solutions to cover retail, F&B, and fashion, municipal services and many other aspects of daily life. At the conference, WeChat Pay unveils five key areas of its cross-border business:

  • To expand its cross-border payment into more markets and to support more currencies.
  • To promote smart checkout solutions and improve the shopping experience for consumers.
  • To promote self-service F&B ordering solutions to ease the communication that involves different and multiple languages.
  • To promote the usage of AI-based solutions in the fashion and beauty industries that enable virtual fitting and makeup testing.
  • To explore more solutions in areas, such as overseas consular services, medical care, education and other social services.

WeChat Pay has successfully developed many case studies in offering smart living solutions. For example, at Heytea Hong Kong, users can order through WeChat's Mini Programs to avoid queue and collect their orders in store when it is ready. In Japan, Fuji-Q Highland guests can purchase tickets and check queuing time via WeChat's Mini Prog! rams to b etter plan their visit for different rides and activities, ensuring a smoother visitor's experience.

WeChat Pay is also expanding its scope in other tourism and travel-related solutions. Today, close to 20 Chinese embassies and foreign consulates around the world are offering WeChat Pay services, which means that Chinese citizens can now make payments using WeChat Pay at these embassies and consulates in emergency, for instance replacement requests of their travel documents.

WeChat - Connect people to businesses Across Multiple Scenarios

With outbound travel becoming easier and an increase in personal income levels, the Chinese outbound travel market continues to expand. In 2018, more than 149 million Chinese tourists travelled abroad with a 14.7% increase on the same period for the previous year[1]. Meanwhile, the consumption of outbound Chinese tourists exceeded US$120 billion, and per capita overseas consumption exceeded RMB 13,000[2].

WeChat Pay not only assists the domestic service providers in mainland China to expand overseas, but also continues to optimize its overall training system to help overseas service providers and merchants to achieve a two-way communication with the Chinese travelers for better customer experience.

Research Commissioned by Priority Pass Shows Welsh Travellers Pay Top Price for Wellness Getaways

  [22-March-2019]  

LONDON, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Research from Priority Pass shows Welsh travellers spend an average of £1,685-a-year on wellness breaks at home and abroad
  • As a whole, the UK spends £9.7bn-a-year on wellness holidays every year
  • Holidays are no longer simply about the destination, but the overall experience
  • Airport lounges feature in the top three "extras" consumers want at the airport

Priority Pass logo

Research from YouGov on behalf of Priority Pass™, the original and market-leading airport experiences program, shows that travellers in Wales spend an average of £1,685-a-year on 'wellness tourism', more than any other region in the UK. In total, the wellness tourism economy is estimated to be worth £9.7bn-a-year in the UK alone.

The data reveals the average amount wellness holidaymakers across the country spend on their getaways every year. When combining the average amount spent on domestic spa breaks with the cost of wellness holidays abroad such as yoga retreats, it's Welsh people (£1,685) who top the charts. They are followed by Scots (£1,426) and people living in the South East (£1,340), with those residing in Yorkshire and the Humber spending the least at £655 per year.

Priority Pass' study also highlights the widespread popularity of more experience-based holidays, with over two in five (41%) Brits heading away on at least one domestic spa break or golfing holiday a year, and one in 20 (5%) jetting off for healthy holidays overseas.

The UK regions ranked in order of annual spend are as follows:

  1. Wales (£1,685)
  2. Scotland (£1,426)
  3. South East (£1,340)
  4. London (£1,314)
  5. South West (£1,282)
  6. East Midlands (£1,164)
  7. North East (£1,141)
  8. East of England (£1,038)
  9. West Midlands (£1,003)
  10. North West (£1,002)
  11. Yorkshire and the Humber (£655)

The research also shows the increasing demand for a "complete wellness experience", where relaxation doesn't start and end at the customer's destination, but is an all-encompassing experience. Travellers in the UK noted that if they were to travel, an upgraded flight (57%), fast track security (51%), and lou! nge acces s at the airport (37%) are the top three extras that would make their journey more enjoyable.

Andy Besant, Director of Travel Experiences at Collinson, which operates Priority Pass, said: "We are seeing an increasing trend in people wanting to take extra care of their wellbeing, which is influencing how consumers choose to spend their money. People now expect every part of their holiday to be stress-free and we are proud to offer airport lounges and other airport experiences such as dining and spa that work together to provide the perfect setting to unwind and relax, right from the off."

The Classic Fusion Ferrari GT Watch Opens a New and Innovative Chapter in the Partnership of Excellence Between Hublot and Ferrari

  [22-March-2019]  

Classic Fusion Ferrari GT

BALE, Switzerland, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Since their collaboration was announced in 2011, Hublot and Ferrari have always created watches featuring unique design and motorisation. Each new edition shows a new style. This year, Hublot presents an airy and elegant piece that relates to the "Gran Turismo" universe. The launch of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT watch, whose extremely innovative design integrates the new UNICO manufacture movement in a body with distinguished and dynamic lines, sees Hublot and Ferrari write a new chapter in their partnership.

To keep updated, follow: #ClassicFusionFerrariGT #HublotFerrari

The long-term collaboration between Hublot and Ferrari is one of a kind and an endless source of creative inspiration that henceforth intertwines the destiny of these two prestigious houses. From the Big Bang Ferrari to the MP-05 LaFerrari or the Techframe, the race for innovation and refinement encapsulates the unstoppable creative impetus that drives the Ferrari Design Centre and the Hublot team. From the start of their union, Hublot and Ferrari had, above all, been involved in the worlds of racing and Formula 1 with the Big Bang Ferrari editions. From 2017, with the Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph which celebrated the 70th anniversary of Ferrari, Hublot and Ferrari joined the universe of GT and this year they are going even further in this world, which has always defined a travel philosophy that combines tradition, elegance and technical perfection.

'Driving over long distances at high speed in comfort and with style'. This is how to summarise the "Gran Turismo" spirit; the term also defines a category of limited-production, very high-performance luxury cars. The GT world is one of innovation and refinement, with a passion for mechanics and a love of passion, performance and innovation: values shared by Ferrari and Hublot. As a vibrant homage to "Grand Touring" cars, Hublot and Ferrari have decided this yearâ€�”and for the first time to combine their sense of aesthetic creativity and mechanical innovation in a Classic Fusion, a watchmaking chassis that is both traditional and modern, in line with the stylistic codes of the GT universe. Another first: the famous UNICO manufacture movement has been integrated into a 45-mm-diameter Classic Fusion case. This is the second of Hublot's own chronograph calibres, unveiled in 2018 (HUB1280). Protected by four patents, this self-winding flyback chronograph movement, with 4 Hz f! requency (28'800 A/h) and a column wheel that can be seen from the dial side, has technical specifications that are fit for a champion with, in particular, a thickness of only 6.75 mm and 3-day power reserve that is very useful for day-to-day life. The entirely new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is available in three different cases: Titanium (limited edition of 1,000 pieces), King Gold (limited edition of 500 pieces) and 3D Carbon (limited edition of 500 pieces).

All-new in the Fine Watchmaking world, 3D Carbon is a polymer matrix composite (PMC) made of three-dimensional fibres. This high-tech material, which is very popular in motorsport, has outstanding qualities of resistance and, in the case of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, offers a lightweight but solid layer of protection, to the UNICO manufacture movement. Designed by the "Centro Stile Ferrari", the new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is true to the image of the creations leaving the Maranello workshops. Its design is very contemporary; Hublot worked on the motor and Ferrari on the body. One of the main design features of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is the case, conceived as a true concentrical suspended element that enhances the dial presence and the sophisticated manufacturing making process. For this purpose, the "Centro Stile Ferrari" designers applied their expertise, building bridges between automotive design and watchmaking motorisation! , and the reby proving that they love to work and surpass themselves on other projects than those linked to cars.

Entirely different yet resolutely complementary to the Techframe launched in 2017, the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is a watch for lovers of fine mechanical pieces who want to display a contemporary and refined style. The dial is transparent thanks to the use of sapphire crystal and reveals the high-precision mechanics of the UNICO HUB1280 calibre, with the famous Prancing Horse appearing at 12 o'clock. Each and every detail has been subjected to meticulous finishing touches like the red thread around the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, a stylistic reference to the legendary Ferrari colour. The straps of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT have been subtly created in black rubber and dressed in Schedoni leather, like the seats of the Maranello race cars. Round like a racing tachometer, the new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is a piece for our time, with particular attention paid to the ergonomics and a thickness of only 13.15 mm, a rarity for an integrated flyback chrono! graph. Th is innovatively designed, airy watch of rare elegance opens a major new chapter in the partnership of excellence between Hublot and Ferrari.

HUBLOT

Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovation, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This "Art of Fusion" stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012.

The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth.

Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to "Be First, Different and Unique", the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratch-resistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico, Meca-10, Tourbillon).

HUBLOT is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events of our times (FIFA World CupTM, UEFA Champions LeagueTM, UEFA EUROTM and Ferrari) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Pelé).
