Last week, horological giant Tudor announced the release of a special edition watch that has been inspired by the brand’s classic Heritage Black Bay collection – a range that boasts some impressive diving timepieces. This model will launch exclusively in Harrods’ Fine Watch Room and will pay homage to the world’s greatest department store: for instance, the tip of the seconds hands, the waterproof depth rating and the bezel are coloured in Harrods’ iconic shade of green. Moreover, not only are these chronographs engraved and uniquely numbered in a military style, but they also come with a steel bracelet and a black fabric strap (a signature feature of the Tudor Heritage Line).
Sourced from ethical free trade farms in Ecuador, de-thorned by florists and accompanied by a bottle of Veuve Clicquot, this elegant box of 24 red roses is perfect for any festive dates you have planned in the upcoming month.
The vision of drinks-maker Four Fox is simple: to turn saké into a go-to tipple in the same way that vodka and whisky are. And the brand’s way of doing this is by creating a product that’s pure and clean. To this end, only the finest ingredients are used, namely goji, snow from Tsunan, Niigata (an area that boasts a greater annual snowfall than Oslo or Moscow) and rice grains which remove impurities. Crisp and smooth, each bottle is classified as junmai daiginjo (the highest grading available) and is best served neat.
Combining the intimate feel of Ralph’s in Paris, the barista brilliance of Ralph’s Coffee in New York and the warm, club-like ambience of The Polo Bar in Manhattan, it’s safe to say that Ralph’s Coffee & Bar on London’s Regent Street is one of the coolest, most elegant joints that can be found in the English capital. And, if you’re the type of gent who wishes to spend all hours of the day at this destination hotspot (we know many), you’ll be glad to hear that there’s now a new breakfast menu available, with specialities such as lobster eggs Benedict and chia pudding being served up to famished diners. For those that need a hit of Ralph’s on-the-go, there’s also a takeaway service that offers custom caffeine blends and an assortment of baked goods.

Set during the romantic era of train travel, Kenneth Branagh’s highly-anticipated Murder on the Orient Express will certainly get your wanderlust stirring. It’s also proved to be the source of inspiration for this luxurious luggage range by Globe-Trotter. Based on the company’s iconic Centenary line, the two-tone colour schemes on offer (navy and ivory) are inspired by the original train’s carriages and also come with a retro-style webbing strap. Available now in a 20-inch trolley case, 30-inch suitcase, a watch case and luggage tag.
Boasting an aggressive and sporty body, the latest Aston Martin Vantage is a radical departure from previous models. Key features include a front splitter that improves airflow, a 50:50 weight distribution and a 4.0 litre AMG twin-turbo that gives drivers the capability to blast out 510PS and 685Nm of torque. If you want something that really stands out on the streets, opt for a radioactive green colour-way; however, for the gent who’d prefer something more subtle, then the timeless grey option is the one for you.

Thanks to its logo-less design, fuss-free aesthetics and slim silhouette, the Original Achilles has gained cult-like status amongst fashion circles. While a crisp white pair is perfect to wear in the summer months, this nubuck iteration is ideal to slip on during these dark winter days. To help round off your look, you can’t go wrong with a wool overcoat and loopback jumper.
