If you’ve ever dreamed of venturing off to Kenya for a safari, Pelorus has the perfect itinerary for you. This eight-night, trip-of-a-lifetime features two of the nation’s most exclusive private homes—from an estate in the Great Rift Valley to a seaside villa overlooking the Indian Ocean. The journey begins as you touch down on the Borana Conservancy, an area rich in wildlife and cultural heritage in the Laikipia region of Kenya. The location for your first sanctuary showcases Kenya’s raw natural beauty while offering remarkable comfort and luxury. A thrilling array of activities that go far beyond the traditional safari experience awaits—from horseback riding to guided bush walks to snorkeling and diving. You may also enjoy all the ocean has to offer about a meticulously restored 60-foot wooden sailing boat or travel by private airplane charter and helicopter to unique areas, opening up a range of new experiences that would otherwise be inaccessible. After your days at the first stop on your adventure draw to a close, you will travel by private airplane charter to your next destination—an opulent villa at the seaside town of Diani Beach that affords a more tropical Kenyan experience. Priced at approximately $17,000 per person, this dream trip can be booked at pelorusx.com/exclusive-kenyan-exploration.

The 1960s was a golden age for sports car performance and sleek sensual design—ushering in the now mythical reputations of racetracks like Le Mans, Sebring, and Daytona. That era also cemented the reputations of such prestigious car manufacturers as Porsche, Ferrari, Jaguar, Bentley, Aston-Martin, Maserati, and Lamborghini. In honor of that automotive design legacy, L’Epee 1839 has introduced a new timepiece that is at the crossroads of race cars and art. Its new Time Fast II is a V8 racing thoroughbred clock that faithfully replicates much of the technology and design that made racing sports cars of the 1960s so appealing. Built on a H-chassis in aluminum (as the racing cars were back then), a three-spoke steering wheel (that sets the time) is made just like those of the real sport cars. The time displays (hours and minutes) of the manufacture 8-day movement are on the dual air filters feeding the V8’s two banks of carburetors. Time Fast II also sports a functional manual gear stick that selects between winding the time movement, winding the piston automaton movement, and neutral. The best part? Winding is done by turning the rear wheels, just like when you were playing with toy cars as a kid. Available for approximately $43,900 at lepee1839.ch/eboutique.
