Leica T with 18-56mm Vario-Elmar-T lens (Photo: Loz Blain/Gizmag)

The Leica T is a true supermodel of a camera, a masterpiece of design, engineering and machining perfection that begs to be touched and turns the heads of Leica fans and lesser mortals alike. But Leica is adamant that it doesn't make sculptures, and it wants the T judged on its performance. So let's see if its results stand up to its astronomic price tag. Loz Blain spent a week with a compact camera that costs, coincidentally, exactly as much as his car.  Read More

YXT ONE is designed to act as a tender for yachts in the 30 m and 70 m (100 to 230 ft) cla...

The phrase “yacht tender” usually conjures up images of a small, somewhat unassuming launch boat. What generally isn’t expected is something 24 m (78 ft) long that looks like an upmarket tug boat and has never swung from a davit in its life. Designed by Diana Yacht Design and built by LYNX Yachts in Zaandam, the Netherlands, Yacht-X-Tender (YXT ONE) is the first in a new line of bespoke pocket support yachts designed for situations where the main craft isn’t quite big enough to hold all the toys.  Read More

There are plenty of atomic watches available that can keep time accurately by receiving a radio signal from an atomic clock, but there hasn't ever been a true atomic wristwatch which boasts its own atomic clock. Until now. Enter the Cesium 133 from Bathys Hawaii, an early steel-bodied prototype of which we first spotted in October 2013.  Read More

What's old is new again – the Vicci 6.2 Convertible

Back in 2007, we first heard about the planned US$2 million Natalia supercar. Designed by Palm Springs-based DiMora Motorcar, it's envisioned as the world’s most luxurious and technologically advanced automobile. DiMora is still working on that lofty goal, but in the meantime it's just released a model with a look that brings decidedly lower-tech cars to mind – the 1930s-inspired Vicci 6.2 Convertible.  Read More

Ford has unveiled the Transit Skyliner Concept luxury van

The Ford Transit Van is an automotive classic, having been on sale since since 1965. Despite that, its popular image is one of a battered old van lugging kit around. Now though, a new concept has given the Transit an "ultra-premium" makeover befitting of its 50th birthday next year.  Read More

The Tag Heuer uses light for power

In 2008, Tag Heuer introduced its first mobile phone, the US$6,200 Meridiist. Well, as if a luxury phone made by a company usually associated with premium watches isn't eyebrow-raising enough, the just-announced Meridiist Infinite offers a little something extra: a built-in photovoltaic panel that keeps it powered up and charging as long as there's light.  Read More

The Monaco V4 Tourbillon on display at Baselworld 2014

Ten years ago, TAG Heuer unveiled its Monaco V4 Concept Watch, which was the world's first watch to incorporate belt drives, linear mass and ball bearings. In 2009, the watchmaker released the production version, simply called the Monaco V4. At Baselworld 2014, we recently spied the latest incarnation, the Monaco V4 Tourbillon. It's reportedly the first watch to ever feature a belt-drive tourbillon complication.  Read More

The Baselworld 2014 watch show officially starts tomorrow in Basel, Switzerland, but Gizmag has already spotted a pretty special-looking watch on the trade show floor. Made by Sweden's GoS Watches, the Bifrost Isblå features a dial and crown made from what the company describes as "high-contrast" pattern-welded stainless Damascus steel.  Read More

Car brand marketing usually means slapping a badge on a tote bag and asking a thousand dollars for it, but Ferrari has gone one better by applying its badge to not one, but two theme parks. Ferrari and PortAventura Entertainment S.A.U have signed an agreement to build a second Ferrari-themed park, Ferrari Land, as part of the PortAventura resort and theme park outside Barcelona, Spain. Expected to open in 2016, the 7.5 ha (18.5 acre) site is billed as “an opportunity for the whole family to experience and discover the world of Ferrari.”  Read More
