from mercedes to mulberry, rolex to ray-ban - 100 style classics to be won with
Friday 21 April 1995
The car in question and our top prize is a 1968 red Mercedes 250SL Pagoda with a dash of history thrown in - it's the one that Twiggy herself drove round swinging London. The rarest of its kind, the automatic gears and power steering make it a dream to drive.
Our timeless timepiece is a 1950 gold Rolex Oyster, the watch that marries unwavering precision with understated elegance. This is a watch that will never go out of fashion - truly a design of our times.
For music lovers we have three prizes of Bang & Olufsen BeoSound Century hi-fi systems. Lightweight and compact, the system comprises a CD, cassette, tuner, amplifier and integrated speakers which combine to produce a sound of incomparable depth and texture.
For 25 winners we have cases of fine wine, and no-one knows their vintages better than Royal Warrant holders Berry Bros & Rudd, the St James's merchants who have been trading since the 17th Century. They have selected 6 whites and 6 reds from their extensive cellars.
With our Ray-Ban Aviators, designed for US pilots during the Second World War, you get the technical excellence of Bausch and Lomb lenses which offer superb protection against glare and UV rays plus styling that complements any outfit, anywhere, at any time. We have 25 pairs of these optical masterpieces to be won.
To keep one step ahead in the modern world a personal organiser is now essential. Mulberry have designed one in fine Nile leather that combines practicality with the refined style associated with this world-famous name. The Nile organiser is surely a classic and we have 25 to be won.
Finally the definitive signature of style must come from the top-class fountain pen, and we have 20 undisputed masterpieces to be won. First made in 1924, the Montblanc pen is a byword for excellence. We have ten of the Classic 149 pens and ten of the lighter 146 style to be won.
So stick with The Independent - like our prizes it's a classic design of our times. Rules as previously published.
