Smart, sleek, simple
In developing its BeoSound 9000, Bang & Olufsen challenged contemporary thinking and design, translating state-of-the-art software and mechanical engineering technology into a one-of-a-kind audio component. The aluminum and black 6-disc changer offers CD/MP3 and radio (RMS), and digital music files via B & O’s BeoLink system, as well as multiple placement options – vertically, horizontally, upright or lying down – and the text display will change to suit your choice. CZK 110,000.
The future is now
Seiko’s new chronograph offers sophistication and high performance in an ultra-stylish package. The durable yet light casing is titanium in a polished matte-gray finish, with two choices of faces, while the sapphire crystal is water-resistant up to 100 meters. The analog quartz movement is equipped with an automatic generating system that provides the watch’s electric energy utilizing the movement of the wearer’s arm. Thus the timepiece remains accurate without requiring conventional battery replacement. CZK 25,000.
