Home Away From Home Away From Home
Sure, you summer at your place in the Hamptons and occasionally in the French Riviera, but how will you keep that summer glow in the winter months? The Nettleton 199 House in Cape Town South Africa has just the right blend of indoor/outdoor space to keep your tan going strong. The stunning minimalist house, designed by SAOTA Architects, features fantastic views of the Atlantic that you can see through the house from the private front yard. Head out to Cape Town in January (their summer) and you’ll never have to experience winter again.
You’ve been labeled a lot of things over the years: World Traveler, Jetsetter, Nomad, Gypsy, Wayfarer etc., etc. Suffice it to say you cross more time zones than a chicken crosses the street. When you’re not leading a water project in South Africa, you’re shooting a swimsuit competition in Bali. Home is whichever gorgeous girl’s pillow you lay on that night. You need some wrist candy that can keep up with that kind of life. The Rolex Sky-Dweller was designed with guys like you in mind. The first Rolex with two time zones and an annual calendar, it features a rotating bezel for easy date and time setting. Available with champagne, ivory or chocolate dials, each watch features 18 ct. yellow, white or everose gold. Strap on this stunner, and your new nickname will be Baller.
While the Stones vinyl collection you inherited from your uncle looks great on your shelf, it would be a lot cooler if could actually listen to it. The AMG Viella V12 Turntable ($16,000) will spin your vintage tunes into this century with 25-millimeter thick aircraft grade aluminum, copper wiring, and 12 gram internal aluminum tubing to ensure perfect resonance control. The smooth finished hardwood exterior is sleek and sophisticated enough for your modern taste, and while you can’t always get what you want, if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need.
