Dear Reader, I have reviewed over 20 different reports about PEBBLE BEACH car week and the accompanying auctions. Suffice to say that I am sorry I was not there. The accounts I read contain glowing analysis of each event and every car sold. Clearly “car sold at auction” and trophy recipients felt greatly rewarded. Those whose cars “no-sold” or did-not-place still enjoyed a wonderful time in Monterey, where the only negative was the occasional traffic jam… but at least you were in a car.

america’s hypercar

The Hennessey Venom F5, from Hennessey Special Vehicles, is a bespoke mid-engine hypercar engineered to exceed 300 mph while delivering unparalleled performance and the world’s most exhilarating driving experience. The Venom F5 is Hennessey’s follow-up act to its celebrated, and world speed record holding, Venom GT. Engineered and built in the USA, the Venom F5 boasts state-of-the-art construction.

The fast-paced world of automobiles is difficult to stay on top of. Not only are there evolutions and innovations in design, engines and materials, but also in forms of driving and racing. Similarly, wristwatches have also enjoyed a visionary journey in design, nano-technology, precision and performance. Ever since world records were set on the famed Bonneville Salt Flats in the mid-20th century with automobiles, world records in watchmaking have also been set, broken and reset to even higher standards. Both of these lifestyle and sport realms are all about harnessing power and delivering performance and perfect timing all in one great package. That unrivaled passion for extremes and excellence is what has brought these two worlds together. Over the past decades, especially since the 21st century began, top watch brands are…
