Breitling Navitimer 8 BO1 Chronometer

Editor’s Picks: Breitling Navitimer, Turnbull & Asser and a 90s Lancia

This week, Swiss brand Breitling and Mr Porter have launched an exclusive collaboration — and we want in. This limited-edition Navitimer Aviator 8 BO1 Chronograph 43 is housed in a steel case with an elegant silver dial, anthracite subdials and a brown leather strap.

It’s a true reflection of the heritage of the legendary Breitling watches of the 1930s and 1940s, and limited to just 1,000, so you’ll have to get in quick. We know we will.

Turnbull & Asser Burgundy Churchill Silk Gown

Editor’s Picks: Breitling Navitimer, Turnbull & Asser and a 90s Lancia

They’ve just launched a new range of linen shirts, but we firmly believe that Turnbull & Asser are masters at whatever they turn their hands to. So, even though they’ve perfected summer shirting, they’re equally as good at ensuring your nightwear is as formal and luxurious as any other garment in your wardrobe.

This silk dressing gown, named for our finest Prime Minister and his favoured spot pattern, is the perfect way to spend a luxurious night in. Made in London using the finest ornate silk, you can’t help feel patriotic when wearing this. God save Turnbull & Asser.

L’Objet Cubisme Ornamental Bookend

Editor’s Picks: Breitling Navitimer, Turnbull & Asser and a 90s Lancia

You may think that the most important thing in your bookcase would be the books. You’d be wrong. Hemingway, Greene, Fitzgerald. Those dusty, leather-bound tomes may look impressive, and certainly speak to your literary taste, but they’re no good if not bookended by a quality, well, bookend.

This highly stylised bookend from L’Objet’s Cubisme collection is available at Liberty London. Crafted from lightly textured earthenware, this bookend features light touches of antiqued gold, and might even start to pull focus from some of the celebrated classics.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay P6

Editor’s Picks: Breitling Navitimer, Turnbull & Asser and a 90s Lancia

There are speakers, and then there are speakers. This, like everything else from Danish brand Bang & Olufsen, is the latter. With the summer season in full swing, and nightly parties framed by hazy sunsets the norm, you need a good soundtrack to play gently beneath the barbecue.

This, the new P6, is just the thing. Featuring up to 16 hours of play time, OneTouch button for smart features and a subtly-retro design, the P6 is made from pearl-blasted aluminium for hardiness and has a leather strap — so you can take it on any adventure you may find yourself on this summer.

Fitz & Fro Linen Collarless Shirt, ‘The Miles’

Editor’s Picks: Breitling Navitimer, Turnbull & Asser and a 90s Lancia

With the mercury rising, your wardrobe should be slimming down. Out with those winter woollen trousers, away with the chukka boots and goodbye to the textured flannel shirts. An excellent replacement for the last of that list is a linen shirt; something lightweight and sartorially sound for the warmer months.

And this is among the best. Made in Portugal, Fitz & Fro’s summer shirt is not only 100% linen and finished in a brilliant azure blue — it is also charitable. For each shirt sold, 5% of proceedings will go to the Miles Frost Fund and The British Heart Foundation, raising money to raise awareness for a rare heart condition.

Lancia Delta HF Integrale

Editor’s Picks: Breitling Navitimer, Turnbull & Asser and a 90s Lancia

To honour the Delta Integrale’s brilliant career, Lancia developed two run-out special editions. These were called the ‘Dealer’s Collection’ and the ‘Edizione Finale’. This, a stellar example of the former, is painted in a unique pearl red, fitted with Recaro seats trimmed in tan leather and equipped with a push-button start.

We at Gentleman’s Journal are great fans of a hot hatch, and this is surely the undisputed king of the car park. The swan song of the rally legend from Lancia, it is compact, cool (in a boxy way) and incredibly fun.
