Editor’s Picks: BBQ Tools, Coffee Machine and Electric Roadster

From the latest wristwatch from Jaeger-LeCoultre to a pair of sleek driving loafers from Scarosso, this is what we want this week…

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.

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.
