Time runs a little differently on Mars, as a new Omega Speedmaster shows. A very special diamond goes up for auction at an auction – and other top styles of the week.

A long day in March

In 1962, the first Omega Speedmaster flew into space, in 1969 it landed on the moon and entered history as the Moonwatch. No earthling has ever set his watch on Mars. Until then, time now makes a bridge Omega Speedmaster X-33 Mars Chronograph, which was developed together with the European Space Agency (ESA). Among other things, the model can display the time and time zones on both planets. Because: A day on Mars is 39 minutes longer than on Earth. 7000 euros.

Pink diamonds are quite rare and therefore particularly valuable. The stronger their shade, the more desirable the stones. But other properties also determine the price: cut, purity and weight. This copy here, e “The Pink Fortune”, weighing 18.18 carats, is the largest pear-shaped fancy pink diamond ever offered at auction. It will be auctioned at Christie’s on November 8 and, according to experts, it could reach the equivalent of 36 million euros. In 2018, another pink (not pear-shaped) diamond had already reached a world record of 39.1 million euros. The Harry Winston jewelry house was awarded the contract for The Winston Pink Legacy.

With their esoteric brand of lifestyle goop Gwyneth Paltrow has cashed in on some weird products, including a scented vaginal candle and an anti-vampire potion. Her latest punch, on the other hand, looks almost vintage: a collection of minimalist jackets in white and navy blue, which she’s launching with Ecoalf. The eco-conscious fashion label was already making clothes from recycled plastic bottles when eco wasn’t a trend. From 300 euros.
