Investment Alternatives: From HYT's Liquid Time to Chopard's Surprise High Jewelry

The HYT Hastroid Green Nebula marks the return of one of the most original independent firms of recent years. Like its predecessors, it stands out for its daring while respecting the tradition of the most demanding Swiss manufactures. This unique clock is inspired by the clepsydra, an ancient Egyptian device that used the flow of water to calculate the passage of time. The idea is to break any expectation of what a watch should be, and it achieves this with its large 48 mm diameter case (52.3 in length and 13.3 in thickness), ideal for large wrists.

Titanium and a groundbreaking stabilized bronze and carbon alloy give this timepiece an entirely futuristic look that incorporates a manual mechanical movement with a 72-hour power reserve. But the most surprising thing is that it does not use any hand that indicates the hours. Instead, two fluids – one colored and one transparent – ​​flow through the microcapsules or “capillary tubes” placed next to the hour markers.

Due to family ties, almost due to genetics, Núria Guinovart has been interested in art since she was a child. Possibly because for generations her family has been dedicated to both artistic and decorative painting.

His career began in the workshop environment of his grandfather Ramon and his father, Enric, where his most renowned relative, Josep Guinovart, also worked in his youth. It is precisely in that space of the workshop that his inspiration begins.

His series of ceramic sculptures developed from 2018 is now exhibited at the Siesta gallery in Barcelona. Through delicate incisions, he extracts material from the gray cement surface, smoothed and waxed, looking for forms that result in silent and balanced spaces. And he accompanies it with a series of characteristic paintings of him.

Made of high-quality heat-resistant ceramic and stainless steel, the Habanero BBQs are kamado barbecues. Portable, of Japanese origin (kamado means oven), in the form of a ceramic globe, they maintain a uniform temperature for a long time. Thanks to its unique construction and chimney effect, the kamado grill heats up very quickly and is perfect for frying, stone oven, smoking, grilling and even paella cooking.

There are several models, but the smallest from Habanero BBQ (one of the jewels of the Barcelona store ActLife7, at Pau Claris, 113) is designed to adapt to boats, caravans or outdoor picnics and is unique on the market due to its format portable. With stainless steel parts, aluminum top valve, all Habanero BBQs have a solid thermometer that shows the temperature in degrees Celsius and an aluminum top valve where airflow can be easily adjusted.

Every year, Caroline Scheufele dreams for Chopard of a collection of fine jewelry related to the world of cinema. A surprising display of ingenuity that pays tribute to the big screen, its stories and actresses.

The most recent is the one Scheufele has rendered to Cinderella and her pumpkin ride. A ring made of titanium and pavé diamonds that hides a secret. The pumpkin opens, and inside is the shoe of the heroine of the story
