It may be a little later than planned, but the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is finally on its way, kicking off next month. And while the athletes make their final preparations, the Official Timekeeper is unveiling a very special timepiece in tribute to the occasion. The OMEGA Seamaster Diver 300M Tokyo 2020 delivers a unique colour scheme inspired by the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games emblem, along with the very best in watchmaking technology.

Port for the win
A superb meal. Exceptional family and friends. And a fine port. All the ticks for a perfect Father’s Day. And while we can’t take care of the first two, we can help out with the third. We’ve a three-bottle carry pack of some jolly splendid port from De Krans to give away. What’s in the pack? De Krans Premium Cape Ruby … a dark ruby port full of the rich flavours of cherries and ripe plum fruit with hints of chocolate and spice (it’s best enjoyed at room temperature during these chilly winter nights, and is great paired with most cheeses and chocolate desserts)
• De Krans Cape Vintage … a rich, deep, almost inky purple-red port, which has beautiful aromas of violets, red berries, vanilla and dark chocolate, and is full of rich flavours … think red fruits, dried prunes, cocoa and spice (it’s lovely with almost all baked desserts or served as a sauce over ice cream, and is excellent on its own or with well-matured cheese) • De Krans Cape Pink … a rose petal pink port that has the smooth, elegant taste of cherries, plums and a hint of candyfloss (this is perfect to have after a lazy al fresco lunch in the winter sun). One – or all – of these would make the ideal gift for dad … you’ll find them from R66 to R118 at dekrans.co.za.
We’ve got a De Krans hamper to give away…
