When the first snow transforms the Alps into a winter wonderland, it is time to go out there and explore. The ideal companion for adventures in the snow is the new Land Rover Defender. We took on a Christmas getaway and realized that it is the ideal car for challenging conditions. Let us tell you more!
Christmas time in the Alps
Christmas is the most magical time of the year. Snow covered trees, fairy lights and warm, comfy living rooms filled with laughter and joy. For us, there is no better place to experience the Christmas spirit than in the Swiss Alps.
This year, Santa has put something special under the Christmas tree: a Favre-Leuba Sky Chief Chronograph. The ETA Valjoux powered watch comes with a beautiful burgundy dial with subtle brown subdials. A matching brown suede strap is complimenting the 43mm steel case perfectly.
While giving is a wonderful part of the Christmas festivities, the joy of being together and spending quality time with loved ones is what makes this holiday so special. When staying in a chalet high up in the mountains, the atmosphere is filled with the warmth of candles, the fire place and joy.
Exploring with the new Defender
For adventures in the snow, one needs a trustworthy companion. We found it in the new Land Rover Defender. This vehicle has been designed for optimum durability. Hence, it can handle extreme terrains and confidently takes us from the urban jungle into icy environments.
We love how the new Defender is honoring the vehicle’s history for rugged solidity while thoroughly remaining a Defender for the 21st century. This is most felt inside the car. Here, we find technology that was invented for modern-day adventures. Land Rover’s most intuitive technologies to date ensure convenience, connectivity and visibility.
In terms of design, the new Land Rover Defender convinces us with its reductive, sophisticated surfaces. True British design with integrity!
One thing Favre-Leuba and Land Rover share, is their aim to push the boundaries of innovation. Their timepieces and cars offer a definitive reliability, built to accompany pioneers throughout all domains.
