Benedict Floyd, CEO and Co-Founder of Art Dubai Group that owns and manages Dubai Design Week, says: “In only three editions, Dubai Design Week has grown to equal in stature its sister event Art Week and plays a similar role in establishing Dubai as the region’s capital for culture and creativity. Through our events such as Art Dubai, the world’s most globally diverse art fair and Global Grad Show, the world’s largest gathering of universities, we are able to leverage Dubai’s position to create unique events that have become meeting points for the world’s creative community”

d3’s Chief Executive Officer, Mohammad Saeed Al Shehhi, says: “We’re very pleased with the incredible response to Dubai Design Week, hosted by d3 again this year, which witnessed a significant increase in visitors from last year. The collaborations between organisations and independent designers, including more than 50 d3 creative partners and retailers, present an extraordinary calibre of creativity and innovation in various sectors of design. This has not only boosted Dubai’s role as an arbiter of cutting-edge design, but also helped emerging regional designers, thinkers and design students bring forth their ideas to a much larger audience.”

ARGENTINE OPEN POLO TOURNAMENT

ARGENTINE OPEN POLO TOURNAMENT: AN 8TH VICTORY FOR PABLO MAC DONOUGH!

La Dolfina, led by Adolfo Cambiaso, beat arch-rival Ellerstina with a score of 14 to 13 at the close of the thoroughly electrifying final of the Argentine Open. It was a magnificent victory for the team, and for the most daring of our partners, Pablo Mac Donough, who held aloft the trophy of the prestigious Argentine Open for an 8th time in his career.

 

POLOundRM

 

This 124th edition of the event, held at the Campo Argentino de Polo, known as ‘the Cathedral of Polo’, in the Palermo district of Buenos Aires, pitted against each other the two greatest polo teams of today, before a public that turned out in droves to attend the match. The atmosphere was charged, to say the least! As usual, Pablo wore his RM 053 Tourbillon during play, a wristwatch remarkable for its titanium carbide armour specifically designed to withstand the extreme impacts inevitable in polo.

 

RMPOLO

 

Down 3-1 in the first chukka, La Dolfina surged back during the second, thanks to goals by Cambiaso and Mac Donough. The score was then neck-and-neck until the fourth chukka, when Pablo’s team opened a handsome four-goal lead, for a score of 13-9. Ellerstina nonetheless returned the charge, marking 4 consecutive points and pushing the game into overtime. Taking advantage of an air shot by Polito Pieres, La Dolfina regained possession of the ball. A long pass by Adolfo Cambiaso to Juan Martín Nero allowed the latter to score, ending the match, which has been hailed as historic.

 

RM053 FULLFRONT RGB

 

Crowned Argentina’s champions for the 11th time, La Dolfina also won the five previous editions of the tournament. Pablo won the Fair Play tournament award (for the fewest fouls).

This was the public’s last opportunity to see Pablo play wearing his RM 053, as Richard Mille has developed an all-new polo calibre with the Argentinian player, also driven by a tourbillon mechanism, but even more sturdy, thanks to an unprecedented technology. This latest watch will be unveiled at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie 2018.
