TNT ROYAL RETRO 43 BONNIE & CLYDE BEAUTIFUL REBELS

With its perfectly choreographed dance of six retrograde hands, the TNT Royal is an endless source of fascination. Not content with staging a complication that is unique in the world, it now explores the fi eld of futuristic materials by introducing a bezel in itr²®. This totally hypoallergenic composite material is six times lighter than steel and four times lighter than titanium. Created from carbon nanotubes, itr²® is transparent. Once charged with ceramic or carbon particles, it turns white or black as desired. Over and above its excellent technical performances, itr²® provides a unique visual effect, echoed by the six seconds bridges and the central bridge alternately draped in sparkling white by means of a stabilised silver coating, or in black.

Frederik Paulsen: Freedom to Explore New Routes

In the introduction to the new book «Chasing the Cold: Frederik Paulsen’s Quest for All Eight Poles» a Hero of the Soviet Union and a Hero of the Russian Federation Arthur Chelingarov wrote: «In my opinion, Swede Frederik Paulsen belongs to the same category of people, as a Northman Thor Heyerdahl, and as a French Jacques- Yves Cousteau. Commonness was always not enough for them, they wanted to reach the sky…

Unfortunately, unlike many travelers, who make their living by writing about their voyages, Frederik doesn’t write books about his journeys, he also doesn’t make movies about them, that’s why few people know about him».

Pavel Tretyakov: A Portrait Painted by Time

“Take care of the gallery and stay healthy!”

The great gallery owner’s last instructions to his relatives. A wise entrepreneur, a visionary collector, a talented restorer, a generous patron, an ever‑curious traveller. There are many ways to describe Pavel Mikhailovich Tretyakov.

His artist contemporaries were proud to know him. Orphans loved him, and his friends and colleagues respected him. There was a period in which members of the Russian imperial household competed with him directly: Prince Vladimir Aleksandrovich and even the Emperor Alexander III himself.

Despite the enormous number of his achievements, Tretyakov is known above all as a great gallery owner: the founder of the world‑famous Tretyakov Gallery.

How did he live? Was it by fortune alone that he became the “symbol” of Russian painting?
