2.Hublot – Techframe Ferrari 70 YEARS Tourbillon

“Ferrari represents the very pinnacle of automotive art, something that we at Hublot are proud to be associated with. The unique Hublot Techframe watch is the result of a team effort – this is a timepiece that combines our expertise in a process that started at Ferrari HQ in Maranello and ended with Hublot in Nyon.

3.Rolex – Cosmograph Daytona

Rolex has managed to update the gold watch for 2017 – to avoid the inevitable risk of looking ostentatious, it gave its Cosmograph Daytona a bold, black ceramic bezel, and introduced a black “elastomer” strap, to accentuate the watch’s sporty vibe. If you’re going to tinker with the aesthetics of a classic, this is the way to do it.

About Mohit Chhikara

I am a person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience. I like to read, I like to write; I like to think, I like to dream; I like to talk, I like to listen. I like to see the sunrise in the morning, I like to see the moonlight at night; I like to feel the music flowing on my face, I like to smell the wind coming from the ocean. I like to look at the clouds in the sky with a blank mind, I like to do thought experiment when I cannot sleep in the middle of the night. I like flowers in spring, rain in summer, leaves in autumn, and snow in winter. I like to sleep early, I like to get up late; I like to be alone, I like to be surrounded by people. I like country’s peace, I like metropolis’ noise; I like the beautiful west lake in Hangzhou, I like the flat cornfield in Champaign. I like delicious food and comfortable shoes; I like good books and romantic movies. I like the land and the nature, I like people. And, I like to laugh.
