Editor’s Picks: Glass-Topped Table Tennis, Coffee Roaster and Ettinger Watch Roll

From a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses to a British-made motorcycle, this is what we want this week…

There’s a glimmer of summer in the air. And, although the clouds are doing their best to conspire against our warm weather wishes, here at Gentleman’s Journal we’ve been picking out our favourite styles and gear for the balmy months ahead.

So, from the wine we want to drink at our summer picnics to the motorbike we want to ride to the Riviera, this is our round-up of the best new releases of the week…

On a roll: Ettinger Watch Roll

Editor’s Picks: Glass-Topped Table Tennis, Coffee Roaster and Ettinger Watch Roll

We hold Ettinger in very high esteem. Their leather goods beat almost all others, and this new watch roll is no different. Suede-lined, and with a dividing ring to keep your watches separate, close it by clipping the two monogrammed poppers — and personalise the outside with up to five initials.

Fire up: CCM Spitfire Six Motorcycle

Editor’s Picks: Glass-Topped Table Tennis, Coffee Roaster and Ettinger Watch Roll

With only 300 of these beautiful bikes being made, we can’t wait to get our hands on one of CCM’s customised motors. Tank colours range from Oxblood Red to Pearl White, but we prefer the British Racing Green — a suitably patriotic hue to compliment that quilted brown leather seat.

Straight-sets: Impatia Lungolinea Wood + Glass Table Tennis table

Editor’s Picks: Glass-Topped Table Tennis, Coffee Roaster and Ettinger Watch Roll

Because who doesn’t want to play table tennis on a glass-topped table? It may be a little too fragile to survive a raucous game of beer pong, but this chrome-plated signature piece will be the gem of any games room. Ash and walnut legs support the glass top, and an Alacantra net makes it game-ready.

Editor’s Picks: Glass-Topped Table Tennis, Coffee Roaster and Ettinger Watch Roll

Made from olive-wood and armed with a stainless steel cutting edge, this iconic piece of kitchenware from Alessi is tough enough to slice even the most stubborn truffle. The design, by Ettore Sottsass, is now 30-years-old — and has surely helped garnish some of the finest dishes to be graced by this one-of-a-kind ingredient.

Summer drinking: Miraval Rosé by The Magnum Company

There’s nothing more decadent than pulling out a magnum to drink in the sun. And, if the clouds do finally part, that wine’s got to be rosé. Aromatic, bursting with fresh strawberries and lively spring flowers, this Miraval will perfectly pair with a board of cured meats and good chunk of crusty bread this summer.
