Casa de Campo, La Romana, Dominican Republic

How do you improve on one of the greatest golf destinations in the world? You go on a spending spree of $40 million to refurbish the hotel’s rooms, build a new reception and pool area overlooked by a completely redone restaurant and then add a spa to compete with the top facilities around the world.

Fine Fabrics

Remember not so many fiscal periods ago when the sartorial pinnacle was reached by raising specially bred sheep in temperature-controlled, chemical-free sheds, piping in music and hoping to break wool fineness records measured in fewer than 12 microns? To be sourcing cloth for softness bragging rights may seem like conspicuous consumption right now, but that’s no reason to give up on the joys of a suit well-tailored from fine, functional cloth with smart patterns

James Bond Shrimp

Moments after dispatching an encroaching thug in the film, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, James Bond, portrayed by George Lazenby, helps himself to a mouthful of caviar and declares it, “Royal Beluga—north of the Caspian.” Well-versed in Champagne, spirits and women, Bond also has a gourmet’s sensitivy (even if he does occasionally dabble in excess), and his preferences often run to seafood.

Rolls-Royce Phantom

There’s a 90-minute wait at the Vinsetta Garage, a classic, Deco-era service station newly transformed into Detroit’s hottest new eatery. But the line of hungry diners snaking out the front door parts like the Red Sea as we pull up in the new Rolls-Royce Phantom, with the young hostess dashing out for a look before letting us know there’s a table waiting.

Fans of James Bond may recall Breitling’s role in 1965’s Thunderball. The ingenious Q outfitted the brand’s Top Time dive watch with a Geiger counter, so the spy could locate stolen atomic bombs.

Backyard Putting Greens

You’re skulking off the course, the laughter of your golfing buddy burning in your ears. Not because you can’t grip and rip. You missed a two-foot putt. Again

Run Silent, Run Deep

Your friends all drive Hummers and fly Cessnas. How do you make amends? With the latest, greatest power toy: the personal submarine. At its smallest it’s a two-seat addendum (Deep Flight Super Falcon is pictured) to your yacht that dives 40 feet and makes onboard helicopters look silly. The largest incarnation is an $80 million, 200-foot hulk with 5,000 square feet of space that will plunge a thousand feet below the waves.
