SURF’S UP!
Nixon’s co-founder Chad DiNenna is an avid
surfer, so it was only a matter of time before
the premium watchmaker released a surf watch to rival all others.
The water-resistant Ultratide lets the wearer know – in real time
– what’s happening at their favourite surf spot. In partnership
with surf forecaster Surfline, it provides information via Bluetooth
on everything from wave height and swell direction, to wind speed
and water temperature, at 2,700 locations around the world.

Istanbul
insider
Just ask mega celebrities like Lady Gaga,
Rihanna and Justin Bieber, who have all been
spotted in Istanbul’s bazaars and hipster
boutiques, and they’ll tell you the ancient city
is great for retail therapy. OprahWinfrey
(above left inset), for instance, loves Nakkas
(above left;

), located just
behind the Hippodrome, for its fine collection
of hand-woven kilim rugs. Tucked inside the
labyrinthine Grand Bazaar (left), Ottoamano’s
(

) specially woven shawls,
cashmere scarves and throws are a favourite
with Sarah Jessica Parker (far left) and Jade
Jagger. And the last time he was in town,
Hugh Jackman was spotted at the mega retail
complex, Zorlu Center (
