BMW’s partnerships with Montblanc, Bowers & Wilkins and Moleskine have yielded a series of premium accessories.
If you haven’t already got enough things BMW, here are a series of ingenious premium accessories that will definitely thrill you. BMW’s partnerships with Montblanc, Bowers & Wilkins and Moleskine have resulted in a BMW Activity Key Set, BMW Headphones and BMW Smart Writing Set designed for a contemporary lifestyle that blends both seamless connectivity with uncompromising design.
The ‘Montblanc for BMW’ Activity Key Set turns the BMW Activity Key into an elegant personal accessory. With its compact dimensions, the Activity Key is a wearable car key that dispenses with the need to press a button to unlock the car. Thanks to its modular design, there are a number of different ways to stow the key away so that it is secure but always at hand. The chic Montblanc leather wristband, in black cowhide leather, transforms the Activity Key into a stylish personal accessory that can be worn on the wrist. The ‘Montblanc for BMW’ Activity Key Set also includes a high-quality key fob with leather insert embossed with the words ‘Montblanc for BMW’.
The superb acoustics of Bowers & Wilkins surround sound systems available in the new BMW 5 Series can also be enjoyed with the impressive on-ear BMW Headphones Bowers & Wilkins P3 S2. The unique styling of the polished stainless steel speaker chassis and the headband’s fine lambskin leather finishing make the headphones a sporty and elegant triumph of design. They fold up compactly for storage, thanks to a handy mechanism, while a robust carry case provides added protection.
The Bavarian carmaker has also partnered renowned note-book maker Moleskine to create the Smart Writing Set, which provides an impressive demonstration of how analogue and digital content can be fully integrated and made fully available. Both text and images can be produced by hand in the Moleskine note-book, known as the Paper Tablet, then transferred digitally to a smartphone or tablet for further use. This seamless integration is underpinned by cutting-edge technology. The product-specific NCode™ technology from Moleskine makes it possible to detect where exactly the Smart Pen+ is in relation to the pages of the Paper Tablet, so that every stroke of the pen is recorded. An accompanying app smoothly transfers the handwritten notes from the note-book to the mobile device’s screen, while the content can also be displayed and shared using Microsoft office 365 in the BMW 5 Series. Sporting an exclusive sketch of the new 5 Series Sedan on the note-book’s cover, plus understated BMW lettering on the pen cap, the BMW Smart Writing Set is a practical accessory for anyone who appreciates the convenience of writing notes by hand, yet does not wish to forego the benefits ofdigital creativity. And it’s a must-have for all BMW enthusiasts, too.
The BMW Smart Writing Set and BMW Headphones Bowers & Wilkins are available from this month March at shop.bmw.com as well as from selected BMW dealers, while the ‘Montblanc for BMW’ Activity Key Set will be available in the summer.
