In true Toys for Boys style, Issue 12 cover release party began with a private dinner for a select few and transitioned into a larger grand cocktail party for special invitees at Cantina La Veinte. The gala event was hosted by none other than Nicky Jam, who recently celebrated his ambassadorship with Bomberg Watches in which he collaborated on the design of two sleek, all black timepieces, which set the dress code for the event: all black, sleek and formal. The fun was fueled by Ron Diplomatico, which was free-flowing until the late night hours. In attendance were a group of Toys for Boys regulars including: Rick De La Croix, Gianluca Vacchi, Amaury Nolasco, Alec Monopoly, Jordi Molla, Daniela Botero, Greg Lotus, and Javier Martin, amongst others.

Originally founded in 2012 in the heart of Switzerland, Bomberg might not be able to boast of the storied heritage that other older Swiss watchmakers can claim but the brand makes up for it with a strong image centered on provocation and unconventionality.

In a way, the most atypical Swiss watchmaker you’ll ever see.
Its new Skull Rider collection is the definition of their fearless manifesto. The centerpieces of the collection are the BOLT-68 Skull Rider automatic timepieces, which are available in three aptly named Bomberg-inspired colours (because calling it black, yellow and blue would be un-Bomberg-like): Blackheart, Hellgold and Eternity Blue.

Amazing collage of Mr Rick De La Croix by contemporary artist Andy Hirst.
‘Andy Hirst is a 39-year-old contemporary artist based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He has worked predominantly in multimedia and oils, but lately produced a series of collage work. The collage works are usually large portraits (5ft x 4.5ft) on canvas comprised of magazine clipping built up in layers to form the facial features. Additional clippings and ripped-out pieces, of various relevant words and numbers are used to form phrases incorporated into the image to add more meaning and depth. Characterized by texture, detail and vibrant colors, the collage portraits work equally well from up close or from a distance.’
