Aquatimer Deep Two
The diver's watch with a mechanical depth gauge makes a return after ten years in the form of the Aquatimer Deep Two, pressure-resistant to 12 bar. Like its predecessor, the GST Deep One from1999, it shows not only the actual dive depth, but also the maximum depth reached during a particular dive. It thus doubles as a complete second safety system alongside the dive computer.
Whereas the GST Deep One was able to measure water depths down to 45 metres, the Aquatimer Deep Two features a semi-circular indicator on the dial, which records depths down to 50 metres. Its pressure measurement system is contained in a second large crown on the left side of the case.
The depth indicator (blue) moves over the white measuring field as the depth of water increases or decreases. The maximum depth indicator (red) always remains at the greatest depth reached. It can be released by a button underneath the depth-gauge sensor crown on the left side of the case. For enquiries contact Khimjis Watches (24699173)
Caran d'Ache Secret Journey II
The Secret Journey II writing instruments, a tribute to romanticism, are entirely produced in Caran d'Ache's Geneva workshops. Each of the 300 fountain pens and 150 roller pens is individually numbered on the ring that also carries the hallmark of Caran d'Ache's master jeweler.
The brilliant black lacquer of the body and cap makes an elegant contrast with the rose gold plate that delicately depicts the countryside around the lake. Subtle engravings, on the surface and in depth, trace the details of the plains, rivers and famous mountain scenery.

To be available in Oman soon
OMASCO has launched in Oman the latest attractive and versatile range of business and fully rugged mobile laptops called Toughbook.
Toughbook Business Mobile model, the CF-F8 has been developed based on user feedback and demand for a lightweight, durable and high performance notebook.
Weighing 1.66kg, the Toughbook CF-F8 is the world's lightest notebook with a 14.1 inch display and integrated optical drive. It also features the IntelÃ‚Â® CoreÃ¢Â„Â¢ 2 Duo standard voltage processor clocked at 2.26GHz and up to 3GB of RAM while delivering approximately six hours of battery life.
For maximum portability, a handle has been incorporated into its design. CF-F8 is well-suited for the lifestyle of frequent travellers and executives on the move. Available at Panasonic showrooms Turbine Perrelet, specialising in the creation of energy through movement since 1777, was impressed by the power of the propulsion of aeroplanes, generated by its key element, the gas turbine.
Focusing on this external component, an ingenious rotating device exploiting the force of the air, Perrelet has established a clear connection with its double rotor and the launch of its new collection Turbine.
The new Turbine models are exclusively equipped with the Perrelet P-181 automatic Double Rotor movement. The double rotor, transformed for the occasion into a turbine fitted with 12 blades made of titanium, covers the whole of the dial and slips beneath an interior black raised area, showing luminous numbers.
On the under dial, luminous markers accentuate the optical effect and make the impact of this model all the more sensational. Respecting the specifications of a fuselage and its aerodynamics, the Turbine is housed in a 44mm concave-shaped case, perfectly recreating the original appearance of the reactor. Even the crown, specially worked and integrated in the case, respects these perfect lines.
