Still baffled about what you’d like to give or receive this Christmas? Then allow Prestige’s Chief Editor Jon Wall to come to the rescue with this inventory of money-no-object suggestions. Here’s a 2020 Christmas wish list for the lovers of timeless and extravagant luxury.
I’m constantly thinking about improving the sound system in my home, I’m hoping someone will present me with a pair of KEF’s LS50 wireless speakers. They’re the first to feature Metamaterial Absorption Technology and though I haven’t a clue what that means, I’m sure they’ll sound amazing.
Ducati X Lamborghini
Ducati’s two-wheeled homage to the Sián hypercar certainly has me lusting. The Ducati Diavel 1260 Lamborghini not only looks sensational but obviously goes like stink, so if anyone is mad enough to think about giving me one of these this Christmas — yes please!
Nothing ventured, nothing gained so I’m aiming high by asking for a McLaren. Not just any Macca but this 765LT, which, as it’s probably the company’s best ever, should fit the bill just fine.
This recently launched 40-megapixel digital M10-R version of Leica’s incomparable rangefinder camera has sensitivity that’s now been increased to 50,000 ISO and a maximum exposure time of 16 minutes. Need I say more?
Last year I put in a cheeky request for a Sundeck yacht and — funny old world — no one took a blind bit of notice. Although I’m still hankering for some fun on the water, this time round I’m being slightly less aggressive by including for this Grand Sport rigid inflatable by Technohull in my 2020 Christmas wish list. It’s light, has plenty of room for my mates and goes just about anywhere inshore — and with a trio of 450hp outboards on the back, it’s not just fast but ludicrously so.
The older I get, the more I like my watches to be simple and classic. And what fits the bill better than a time-only Rolex? I’m talking, of course, about the Oyster Perpetual, which for 2020 now comes in an eminently wearable 41mm diameter as well as a host of new dial colours. Although I’m tempted by the blue one, I reckon this more conservative model should fit the bill even better. With silver-grey sunray dial and — in a discreet touch of luxury — gold accents, it will go with just about anything, from casual to formal.
