Ten minutes before the end of the football match : Màlaga vs Real Madrid, Mesut Özil fell down, hurting his right ankle. He was quickly taken off on a stretcher as the severity of his injury was yet to be known.
It is almost sure now that he will not compete against the Atlético on the 17th of May for the Spanish Cup final.
The assistant manager of the Real Madrid, Mr. Aitor Karanka is unsure how long Mesut will be out of the games.

The brand announced during Baselworld 2013 that the new ambassador is Mesut Özil the famous Real Madrid football player.
At the age of 24 (10/11/1988) Mesut Özil has already a promising career and has been compared many times the football legend Zinedine Zidane. Due to his outstanding performance in the 2010 Fifa World Cup, he ensured his place among European top talents. For about 15 million Mesut Ozil was transferred to the Real Madrid club among top players such as Cristiano Ronaldo or Kakà. After finishing the season with 25 assists in his new club, the highest score for any major European competition that season, Mesut Ozil performance was praised by media, fans and even other players.

Unfortunately and because I am a curious man, we don’t have any information yet concerning a new model or a new collection, I guess we must wait until the beginning of Baselworld to know more!

King Fook, the Hong Kong authorized dealer of Cyrus has released a new advertising about the Cyrus Klepcys Mars.
King Fook timeline:
1949 : King Fook Jewellery Group was previously known as King Fook Goldsmiths and founded by the late Mr. C .W. Young. Its business operations started on October 8, 1949 at 5 Bonham Strand East in Sheung Wan. Initially the company focused on gold extraction and gold bar trading. The Group company motto has always been and remains » Integrity, Diligence and Professionalism ».
1959 : Ten years after its establishment, the company expanded into the retail business, selling gold jewellery and accessories. The first outlet opened was at the Miramar Shopping Arcade, and little more than a year later the company opened a branch in Kowloon and began retailing watches. In 1965, King Fook Gold & Jewellery (Kowloon) Co. Incorporation was established as a registered limited company in Hong Kong.
1971 : A few years later in 1971, the Group opened its first grand gold, jewellery and watch shop, King Fook Jewellery in the King Fook building, Central. In 1973, the Kowloon outlet became a limited company and expanded its business into the sale of overseas gifts.
1988 : In March 1988 a new era in the history of the company began as King Fook Holdings Limited became a listed company on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
1999 : For years King Fook has been a name synonymous with quality and recognized bu the older generations. But it wasn’t until after the handover in 1997, that the Group decided to capture the attention of high-end customers and reform the brand. By injecting new resources into the company, the Group decided to establish a top-tier jewellery and watch concept store called Masterpiece by King Fook.
2010 : The opening of two new Masterpiece by King Fook at The ONE in Tsim Sha Tsui and Central Building, followed later by a brand new King Fook Jewellery Shops in Causeway Bay at Windsor House.
2012 : King Fook Jewellery shop Expansion at the Park Lane in Causeway Bay. The Shop re-open at Mira Mall in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Cyrus has found a different way to display its timepieces in the Gstaad Palace in Switzerland. While most of the brands would only show their watches in traditional displays in the lobby, Cyrus took a different path and introduces the Cyrus Klepcys in no other places that the cigar lounge.
The Gstaad Palace is one of the most beautiful five stars hotel in Switzerland and in the world. The construction began in 1911 and was achieved in 1913. A few decades later and after the first world war, Mr and Mrs Scherz-Bezzola arrived as manager of the Palace, they previously worked for the Hotel Carlton in St. Moritz. But after the second world war the hotel was too hard to keep out of debt and the Scherz-Bezzola decided to sell it. A German industrialist took over the hotel and decided to turn it into a home retirement for factory workers.
A few years later Mr Scherz,with the help of some friends managed to buy again the hotel. Over the years he successfully managed to buy shares from every stakeholders to be the only owner of the Gstaad Palace.
After 50 years and more than 90 million of Swiss Francs spent on enlargements and improvements the Scherz family is still at the head of the palace with Andrea Scherz the grand-son of Mr. Scherz.
Just like Cyrus, the Gstaad Palace is a family company that believe in an outstanding product, different from the competition and that provides the best services and/or craftmanship to the most demanding people.
After the official release of the W Motors LykanHypersport supercar last week during the Qatar Motor Show 2013, I got a number of emails asking me what the Cyrus Klepcys included in the whole package will look like. For those who missed the former article : once you buy a LykanHypersport supercar for a mere 3,4M USD you can get your hands on a special edition of the Cyrus Klepcys (approx 100 000 USD).
I don’t know much about this new limited edition of only 7 pieces version, but a picture released recently by Cyrus shows us that on the back of the watch, Cyrus is gone, only to be replaced by the fingerprint (melted into a gold medallion) of Jean-François Mojon, creator of the Cyrus Klepcys movement and one of the most renowned Swiss watchmaker of our time.
The blue Cyrus branded screws and the blue stitches on the strap will remind you of the blue moon on the other side of the watch (unfortunately no pictures yet!).
