Tasting of the Davidoff Robusto Real Especiales 7

The complexity of this blend of 7 different tobaccos is unique in this form and becomes a wonderful feeling after the first lighting. The achievement of rolling an inlay of 5 different tobaccos and guaranteeing a solid smoking experience, seemed literally impossible to the experts. Nevertheless, the Davidoff Robusto Real Especiales 7 was developed from fiction into an outstanding product. Davidoff Robusto Real Especiales 7 Pictures & Rights @ Christian Schmid Fotowerk 132

Best mens watches under 2000

We’re often asked whether there are also high-quality watches for a reasonable budget. The answer is: yes ! We have teamed up with Hamilton Watches to present the best mens watches under 2000. The timepieces of the former US watch manufacturer have one thing in common: they convince with harmonious optics and offer excellent value for money.

About Hamilton Watches – a legendary brand

Hamilton was founded in 1892 in the US and looks back on over 100 years of glorious history in the service of aviation. Since the early days of aviation, Hamilton has provided pilots and co-pilots with important cockpit instruments. Meanwhile, Hamilton is part of the Swatch Group and produces all its watches in Switzerland (SWISS MADE).

At the heart of cinema

The brand not only has an impressive tradition and history, it can be seen in more than 500 films, including blockbusters such as Pearl Harbor, Interstellar, Men in Black and Shanghai Express.

The best mens watches under 2000

1. The Khaki Field Murph Auto (ref. H70605731)

This is the moment every fan of Interstellar has been waiting for! The model is a faithful re-edition of the watch that appears in the film on the wrist of the main character Murph. With the word “Eureka” printed in Morse on the second hand, this watch is a must-have for movie fans and a collector’s item for Hamilton lovers. The “Murph” comes in a limited edition package developed in collaboration with award-winning production designer Nathan Crowley.

The Murph is a real eye-catcher and therefore our number one of the best watches under 2000. In the film Interstellar, Cooper transmits the necessary data to Murph via Morse code to evacuate people from Earth. Around 5 years later, it is available in its original form in stores. It is so well done, we have just ordered it!

Vegan SUV – the new Range Rover Evoque (2019)

The idea of presenting the first mini SUV was certainly controversial in 2010 and plays a central role in Land Rover’s success story, as the British car manufacturer sold almost 800,000 units of the Evoque in the nine years since its inception. Now follows a new and promising version, which is also available vegan* on request: the Range Rover Evoque 2019.

Our test drive with the new Range Rover Evoque

The route of our test drive couldn’t have been more beautiful: it started on a sunny spring morning in Milan, led over narrow roads and woods up to the Refugio Venini and at the end along the picturesque Lago di Como. Land Rover’s compact SUV was able to prove that the Range Rover Evoque was not only developed for Victoria Beckham. It’s not surprising news: there’s a lot of off-road in the Evoque.

Four-wheel drive, Terrain Response 2 automatic & revised platform

So that the Rane Rover Evoque can also prove itself off the road, pretty much everything has been revised:

  • The Evoque absorbs absolutely every unevenness: McPherson struts and the Hydrobush suspension provide a lot of driving comfort and smoothness.
  • With the new Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA) from Land Rover, the Evoque is stable and safe.
  • Adaptive Dynamics – sensors permanently monitor the road surface and optimize suspension up to 100 times per second
  • Active Driveline all-wheel drive distributes power to the front wheels (to save fuel) and switches on the rear wheels unnoticed within 0.3 seconds if traction is lost.
  • Various driving programs such as “Comfort”, “Sand”, “Grass/gravel/snow”, “Mud” or car are available.
    Ground clearance of 212 millimetres including front and rear slope angles of 22.2 and 30.6 degrees respectively.

Conclusion: The Evoque from Land Rover thus manages the balancing act between city speedster and off-roader in the best manner.

Range Rover Evoque 2019

Form language & design

The Evoque DNA is still in there, the fact that we face a compact SUV can be recognized by the size quickly. The boot increases by 10% to 591 litres, with an additional 20 mm legroom at the rear. Otherwise, some of the highly acclaimed design of the Range Rover Velar has been adopted – inside and out.

A length of 4.37 metres, a slightly larger wheelbase, recessed handles, narrower headlights, design elements in burnished copper and the absence of unnecessary frills are the most striking elements of the new Range Rover Evoque design.

The Evoque becomes a vegan on request

Eucalyptus textiles – made from natural fibres – are used, which consume significantly less water during cultivation than conventional materials. This substance therefore has the properties of an efficient material that is not derived from animals.

Customers can choose seats developed by the Danish textile expert Kvadrat. The material is a high-quality alternative to leather – a durable wool blend combined with a technical Dinamica®-Suedecloth of 53 recycled plastic bottles per vehicle.

The new features in the new Range Rover Evoque

  • Thanks to an intelligent 360° camera system, the driver sees the area under the front of the vehicle on the display, which should be very helpful for difficult off-road passages or when parking in narrow gaps.
  • A digital rear-view mirror is available at the touch of a button, doubling the field of vision from approx. 25° to 50°.
  • 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • App Connection
