The system is capable of shining in different colors and patterns with just a touch sensor, and its internal battery is easily rechargeable with a USB cable. The LED light blinks and fades from one color to the next, in shades of blue, red, green, purple, yellow, and white.

The Australian eyewear brand Oscar & Frank has launched a limited edition entitled “Made in Japan” collection, featuring handcrafted styles made by eyewear artisans in Sabae, Japan. Influenced by the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold (known as kintsugi), the eyewear pieces are made with Italian Comotec Hinges and rubber-coated screws using fine Italian acetate. Its styles are sleek and bold, bringing modern practicality to classic trends, while paying attention to every detail.

In a glittering ode to the night-sky, Jaeger-LeCoultre presents the Rendez-Vous Dazzling Moon Lazura watch. Fascinated by the moon and stars, watchmakers decorated the new piece with 36 large diamonds on the outer circle, and a celestial map on blue lapis lazuli and mother-of-pearl, dotted with 68 diamonds, that outline the lower dial.
