Who’s ready for the sun-soaked days of May? This week, we’re setting ourselves up for summer — looking through the latest launches and product reveals to brighten our warm weeks to come.
We’ve turned up the volume on Marshall’s new wireless speaker, popped the cork on a bottle of crisp Mirabeau rosé and sharpened Blenheim Forge’s latest BBQ knife set. Elsewhere, we’re feeling the wind in our hair with a vintage-tinged drop-top roadster and getting into the saddle of Belgium’s best eBike. Discover this and more below…
Time will tell: Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Calendar Blue
The latest from the luxury Swiss watchmaker, this new Master Control Calendar features a deep navy-blue sunray-brushed dial with a lighter blue-hued halo. Pair that with the shine of Super-Luminova and silvered Dauphine hands — and you’ve got the brightest, boldest new Jaeger of the year.

Lead the charge: Wiesmann Project Thunderball Electric Roadster
It’s as impressive as it looks. Long of bonnet and swift of speed, this German roadster is an electrified slice of the drop-top future. A carbon-fibre body affords the thing a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 seconds, and its charge range is an equally imposing 311 miles.

Fire up: Blenheim Forge Barbecue Set
Tighten those apron strings and ready your spatulas; Blenheim Forge has re-staked its charcoal-dusted claim to barbecuing supremacy. Among the new tools offered by the brand are a meat cleaver, stiff boning knife and — perhaps most theatrically — an oversized ‘scimitar’.
