On-Wrist Luxe
Frédérique Constant’s Classics Manufacture boasts an updated version of the movement from their Maxime Manufacture collection, hand-decorated with Côtes de Genève—undulating lines resembling waves—and colimaçon (spiral) patterns. At $2,250 for the stainless steel version, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better price for a fine Swiss-made movement.

The Instant Gardener
The Robomow RS630 is for deck-chair gardening enthusiasts. It mows your lawn while you relax, returns to its base and charges itself. The hardened steel blades reach to the borders of its base for precision crisp-edging.

Lost and Found
Tile devices are tiny plastic Bluetooth-equipped rectangles that you attach to your laptop, phone, handbag or cat, to locate your lost stuff. The Tile app, meanwhile, uses GPS to save an item’s last location and is compatible with most iOS devices.

Fitting Music
Having won 2013’s Red Dot design award before they were released, these KEF M500 cans pack a smart hinge to rotate on two axes. Allied to a sweat-resistant memory foam headband, they’ll fit any bonce. 40 mm neodymium drivers and a copper-clad aluminium wire ensure top audio. An in-line remote lets you take calls.
