The British envelope-nudgers profiled here – people whose sheer creative derring-do knows no bounds – include Dan Hayes, whose company, VRCO, is working on a fully functioning flying car; Roger Smith, owner of the eponymous watch company, who has nailed all thirty two skills needed to build a timepiece from scratch; and Gabriella Somerville, who has gone from being a cabin crew worker to founder and CEO of private jet charter company ConnectJets. Their stories all testify to a broader truth: that to make good things happen and make them lucrative, you need a conviction, captured best in the title of Richard Branson’s 2006 tome, to say Screw It, Let’s Do It. What’s called chutzpah in Yiddish is clearly a fierce wind in the sails when it comes to making a success of a new, and original, venture.
Another Robb Report milieu in which innovation has gone into sixth gear is horology, as we found when attending this year’s SIHH. A four-note minute repeater, a meteorite dial, a strap made of recycled plastic bottles and concave/convex sapphire crystals that improve legibility were all among the strokes of boundary-nudging genius we encountered there, while TAG Heuer have now come up with a timepiece, the Carrera Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon Nanograph, that has a carbon composite hairspring. Find out the benefits of that exceptional lab creation.
Another major theme in this issue is Wings & Water – or to put that another way, the latest ultra-luxurious craft taking to either the sky or the sea. Electric aircraft and cruisers, dazzling on-board beach-club concepts, bulletproof vessels and sea-borne gardens all serve to prove a pleasing overlap between the two major themes of an issue Robb Report thoroughly enjoyed putting together.
