Curves Ahead

Just can’t make the permanent shift to a mobile-only existence? You might as well go big and beautiful, then, with the HP Envy ($1,800). A curvaceous 34-inch screen developed in tandem with Microsoft for optimal Windows 10 use, the Envy offers up to 16 GB of RAM for power to match its looks. When the workday is over and you want to kick back? Fire up Jurassic World and enjoy the bone-crunching mayhem on the Envy’s Bang & Olufsen audio system.

STYLE
Time on the table

The new Panerai Table Clock is a perfect sphere (65 mm in diameter) of transparent mineral glass, an enclosed dial, and a mechanical movement with a power reserve of eight days. It is available in two versions, identical except for the graphics and structure of the dial. The movement is the Manufacture P5000 calibre and hand-wound; its inspiration is historical in that it is derived from the Angelus movements of some vintage Panerai watches.

AUTO
New, and improved

Horex, the makers of the VR6, are back at it again. The new owners, 3C Carbon, displayed an upgraded model at the IAA show in Frankfurt. The bike—33 will be made—gets a new all-carbon subframe in addition to the top-flight Ohlins and Brembo aggregates. Prices for the new VR6 are expected to be significantly higher; the old design was already billed as super expensive. The resurrection is not easy in the competitive market, but Horex, it appears, is ready to fight its way back into business.
