This month, the world is your cus­tomised oys­ter. This is­sue brings you the suite in Ed­in­burgh where J K Rowl­ing fin­ished her Harry Pot­ter saga (page 39). The auc­tion of an un­cracked Spald­ing bat be­long­ing to Mike ‘King’ Kelly will un­doubt­edly thrill base­ball fans (page 36), while those in a high jew­ellery state of mind may ap­pre­ci­ate a sin­gu­larly unique piece in the Chopard Silk Road col­lec­tion – an 18-carat white gold and ti­ta­nium neck­lace set with 105 carats of emer­alds, 73.2 carats of Paraiba tour­ma­lines and 52.3 carats of bril­liant-cut di­a­monds (page 30). See how you can make this sea­son’s fash­ion work for you (page 80) or add ar­mour to your ride (page 136). The cen­turies- old world of horol­ogy has new tech­nol­ogy and de­sign at its dis­posal, which can be seen in astro­nom­i­cal com­pli­ca­tions (page 122), ma­te­rial alchemy (page 120) and even a height­ened state of de­sign con­scious­ness (page 112). The es­o­teric art of au­tom­ata is given new life by Van Cleef & Ar­pels, which taps into the ex­tremes of ex­per­tise to cre­ate its mag­i­cal Ex­tra­or­di­nary Ob­ject – the Au­to­mate Fee On­dine (page 116). As al­ways, the var­ied des­ti­na­tions on of­fer – The Mal­dives (page 148), Siem Reap (page 156) and Stock­holm (page 144) – of­fer a myr­iad ways in which to ex­pe­ri­ence the world, be it as a diver, ad­ven­turer or a No­bel Lau­re­ate.
