In order you could have realised by now our trip to Dubai was tremendous exciting and we managed to create a lot material in only one week that we are however publishing it a lot of weeks just after our take a look at. This time we are taking a tour within the Dubai's 'The Cigar Lounge' found around the 13th floor of 'The Address' hotel in heart of Downtown Dubai. Invited by our good friend Eissa ( eissajanahi) we were being going there from an celebration in the Dubai Shopping mall.
* Join the Enjoy Anish Club *
As I have described within the former Dubai diaries one among our mates and followers Looch ( lo0ch) came all of the way from his hometown Manila, and brought one of his awesome parts along (Urwerk UR103 by using a custom strap).
Now just before we go into the other replica watches let's take a moment to understand the replica watch in the cigar lounge. I never basically predicted it to get that fantastic, particularly using the area only staying around the thirteenth ground! I had been evidently within the incorrect as all through the check out the only real far better check out of the downtown I bought was within the top rated of Burj Khalifa (report coming before long). Within this situation our Hublot Dubai Visions was evidently during the right position, looking around the town (and just in case you happen to be asking yourself - no, we did not photoshop it into your photo).
As for the inside of on the lounge every little thing appeared ideal over it - starting from the ambiance and audio and to the particular collection of cigars (about thirty different makes!) and cocktails. When Eissa was smoking with his 'carbonated' AP ROO on the wrist, Anish was ordering some beverages together with our mate and super charismatic Arabic talking Korean comic and Jaeger-LeCoultre ambassador Wonho Chung ( wonhochung), and that i was accomplishing what I do most effective - eating :)
With our mates from Moscow Alan ( alan_enileev) and Alex ( markovsky) we also uncovered some magic formula abilities. While Alan was evidently the entire world winner in that really renowned sport 'Need For Speed' not so prolonged in the past, Alex is ranked one of the leading European yo-yo gamers (what? !). Yep, evidently yo-yo can be a significant factor (movie coming before long).
So this was our night inside the Cigar Lounge in Dubai; far more shorter stories about our trip to come. Hope you loved it and I'd want to know what you concentrate on our Dubai posts - if you prefer them more time plus more in-depth or even more such as this - pictures oriented :) Possess a fantastic relaxation from the working day and don't fail to remember to affix our WatchAnish Club, some special content coming there really before long!

* Be a part of the Look at Anish Club * Fonderie forty seven is often a social enterprise whose mission is always to cut down the variety and influence of assault rifles together with other little arms close to the earth. Fonderie forty seven performs with foremost designers and artists to make jewelry, replica watches and add-ons, working with steel from AK47s that are recovered from African war zones. In turn, the sale of each and every piece funds the destruction of the particular variety of assault rifles in Africa. Fonderie 47 − 'fonderie' is French for foundry (for melting and casting metal),'47' for AK47 − was founded in 2009 by Peter Thum.
The founders were inspired to build Fonderie forty seven by their own personal experiences of meeting children armed with assault rifles in Africa and their desire to transform this problem and engage others in this effort. The company's programs are expanding to work to lessen the number and affect of modest arms all over the entire world.
Founded in 2009, the company launched its first collection in November of 2011 in New York City. Fonderie forty seven programs have destroyed over 30,000 guns in Africa to date, working with the Nobel Prize winning NGO, Mines Advisory Group.

To date, Fonderie forty seven has funded the destruction of over 30,000 assault rifles in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi. There are an estimated 20 million assault weapons in Africa. A large majority of these are AK47 variants. These estimates are based on production estimates, population distribution, surveys of confiscated weaponry, and information from NGOs.
Fonderie forty seven is a social venture that consists of the for-profit company, and a not-for-profit corporation. The sale of every piece of jewellery resources the destruction of a particular number of assault rifles in Africa. The related amount of revenue is donated by the company to the not-for-profit, which in turn makes grants to NGOs that perform the weapon destruction programs. Currently, grant funding is provided to the Nobel Prize winning, UK-based NGO, Mines Advisory Group, who subsequently carries out the technical oversight and physical destruction of the weapons in the Democratic Republic of Congo and in Burundi. Mines Advisory Group operates conjunction with staff of the governments of the Democratic Republic of Congo and of Burundi.
These assault rifles were collected from conflict by the government of the Democratic Republic of Congo and the government of Burundi and the United Nations from combatants who have turned them over as part of the disarmament process at the cessation of combat. Once these weapons are destroyed, the scrap metal, which belongs to the government, is recycled locally.
In Africa, assault rifles cost about 70% less than anywhere else in the entire world. While prices have risen elsewhere since 1990, they have fallen in Africa. By reducing the supply of older, cheaper weapons, we aim to scale back the overall supply. We do not expect to stop the importation of weapons. However, since purchasing power is low in such conflict zones, while the cost of the replacement weapons from outside Africa is several times higher, we anticipate that the overall supply will decrease.
About Peter Thum, CEO and co-founder of Fonderie 47
Fonderie forty seven CEO and founder Peter Thum began his business career with Gallo Winery and McKinsey Company before becoming a social entrepreneur. Visits to Africa highlighted the widespread health issues caused by the lack of clean water and led Thum to launch the bottled water brand 'Ethos Water' in 2003 to fund safe-water projects in Africa. Starbucks bought Ethos Water in 2005 and after the sale, Thum served as Vice President of Starbucks Corporation, operating theEthos Water business, and as a Director of the Starbucks Foundation. Ethos Water has helped around half a million people all over the globe to gain access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education.
While visiting safe water projects in Africa, Thum became aware of the problems caused by widespread availability of assault rifles, in particular the ubiquitous AK47. He decided to launch a luxury brand − something sending a positive message and far removed from the destructive arms − the profits from which would be used to destroy and eliminate these weapons. In 2009 Fonderie forty seven was launched, a venture that transforms AK47sfrom Africa into rare jewelry and exclusive high-end Swiss timepieces, which in turn fund the destruction of more weapons −over 30,000 destroyed to date.
Peter Thum also founded and is President of the non-profit Giving Water, which has helped over 6,000 schoolchildren in Africa to gain water and sanitation access and is Board Director of The Fund for Global Human Rights and an adviser to FEED Projects.
Collections by Fonderie 47
The mission to generate a high-end mechanical replica watch incorporating metal from a destroyed AK47 began even before Fonderie forty seven was founded, because it quickly became clear that the development and production of a completely original complicated haute horlogerie timepiece would take many years. Fonderie 47 has also worked with some of the world's best designers and jewelers to make artistic pieces made from AK47 steel, precious metals and jewels. Working with the Nobel Prize winning NGO Mines Advisory Group, to date Fonderie forty seven has funded the destruction of over 30,000 assault rifles in war zones in Africa. The Inversion Principle Collection offers exclusive mechanical timepieces and the jewellery creations from Fonderie 47 are available under Crucible, Phoenix and Crangi collections.
Inversion Principle Collection
Inversion Principle is actually a completely original timepiece designed by Adrian Glessing and developed and produced by David Candaux/Du Val Des Bois exclusively for Fonderie forty seven. Revenues from the sale of every timepiece will be used fund the destruction of one thousand assault weapons in Africa, creating a safer environment for aid and development. This is usually a strategy that Peter Thum already implemented successfully in creating Ethos Water to fund clean water projects in Africa and around the world.
The Phoenix collection by James de Givenchy
New York-based jewelry designer James de Givenchy's Phoenix Collection for Fonderie 47 was inspired by the concept of the egg as a symbol of budding possibility, fundamental beauty, and the potential for rebirth. The Phoenix Collection features handcrafted jewellery pieces for women and an objet d'art, an egg crafted from AK47 metal and diamonds. The pieces are crafted from AK47 metal sustainably sourced 18-karat rose gold and platinum, and conflict-free diamonds in Givenchy's New York City studio. Each piece bears the serial quantity of the weapon used to build it. Each piece sold destroys a particular amount of assault rifles in Africa.
The Crangi collection by Philip Crangi
Philip Crangi's signet rings for men feature Fonderie forty seven metal set in 18-karat gold. Every single ring is custom crafted to customer specifications in Crangi's New York City studio. The Crangi collection also features earrings for women, with both18-karat gold and Fonderie forty seven steel from AK47s from Africa. Every bit bears the serial amount of the weapon used to produce it. Each bit sold destroys a certain amount of assault rifles in Africa.
