ITANAGAR, 21 Aug: The Arunachal Indigenous Tribes Forum (AITF) on Saturday urged the state government to implement its fact-finding committee’s (FFC) recommendation over the “infamous Kimin’s name-pasting and changing episode.”

The AITF had constituted a seven-member FFC on the Kimin fiasco on 23 June, and the committee submitted its report to the government on 14 July.

Speaking to a local channel, AITF president Bengia Tolum informed that the report of the AITF FFC was submitted and placed before the joint consultative forum meeting of the federating CBOs on 14 July, 2021, “which had been unanimously accepted and recommended for immediate action of the state government in the greater interest of the state to protect the territorial integrity.”

Tolum informed that the AITF suggested to the government to implement its recommendation within a timeframe of six months, and urged the state government to pursue the matter with the defence ministry and other appropriate authorities of the BRO at the highest level to fix responsibility on the officers concerned of the BRO.

It also suggested to the government to constitute a committee to study and assess the matter of relocating the Kimin inner line permit check gate to the actual Assam-Arunachal interstate entry point within three months.

The forum also asked the government to adopt a state boundary management policy “for long-term solution of all the boundary affairs by strengthening the department of border affairs with manpower and resources with independent, sound budget.”

It further suggested that all bordering districts should be divided into “appropriate management zones, headed by a dedicated officer of the rank of deputy (or) joint director under the command of a full-fledged director of border affairs.”

“The border zones may be further segregated into convenient border sectors, headed by the border officer of the rank of circle officer. The CBOs need to be involved while framing border policies,” the AITF said.

It also opined that the pending cases in the Supreme Court should be pursued “by deputing a team of technical experts and legal experts on a war footing,” and asked the government to oppose the lopsided one-man Bordoloi Committee report on the Assam-Arunachal boundary.

Meanwhile, the AITF strongly opposed the draft Arunachal Pradesh marriage and inheritance of property bill and urged the government to reject the draft bill outright. “We made our stand clear and the AITF did not participate due to gross inherent flaws, discrepancies and inadequacies,” it stated in a release.

“There should be no further discussion on the issue (draft bill) from any corner as the customary laws, law of the land under the provisions of various existing acts and statutes are already in place to regulate the system of marriage, divorce and acquiring and inheritance of properties,” the AITF stated, opposing the draft bill.

Mit Rücken­wind aus dem Der­by­sieg im Pokal gegen den SV Reitsch in der Vor­wo­che ging die Ull­rich-Elf hoch­mo­ti­viert in die Par­tie. Auf hei­mi­schen Rasen über­nahm sie auch gleich das Kom­man­do, kam aber in der Anfangs­vier­tel­stun­de zu kei­ner zwin­gen­den Tor­chan­ce. Die Gäste kamen nach und nach bes­ser ins Spiel und hat­ten durch Isa­bel Kast­ner die erste Mög­lich­keit zur Füh­rung. Die Hofe­rin­nen ver­such­ten vor allem mit lan­gen Bäl­len ihre schnel­len Stür­me­rin­nen zu bedie­nen. Die Frens­dor­fer Defen­si­ve um Johan­na Kuhn stand aber sta­bil und konn­te die mei­sten Angriffs­ver­su­che mühe­los klä­ren. Kurz vor dem Halb­zeit­pfiff ret­te­te Schluss­frau Lena Eich­fel­der mit einem star­kem Reflex das 0:0 für ihr Team in die Pause.

Auch nach dem Sei­ten­wech­sel spiel­te sich der Groß­teil der Par­tie im Mit­tel­feld ab. Frens­dorf war um einen geord­ne­ten Auf­bau im Mit­tel­feld bemüht, auf Hofer Sei­te ver­such­te man wei­ter­hin mit lan­gen Bäl­len das Mit­tel­feld zu über­spie­len. Nach einer guten Stun­de fiel dann eher uner­war­tet das 1:0 und war mehr als ein Gast­ge­schenk. Dabei lief Anna­le­na Hader­lein die eigent­lich unbe­dräng­te Kee­prin des 1. FFC Hof an, die der Stür­me­rin den Ball unglück­lich vor die Füße spiel­te. Über­legt leg­te die­se noch­mals auf frei­ste­hen­de Kapi­tä­nin Vere­na Lech­ner zurück, die kei­ne Mühe hat­te ihr 1. Sai­son­tor zu erzie­len. Kei­ne Minu­te spä­ter war es wie­der Lena Eich­fel­der, die Ihre Mann­schaft mit einem star­ken Reflex die Füh­rung ret­te­te. Erneut Isa­bel Kast­ner hat­te sich zuvor stark auf der lin­ken Sei­te durch­ge­setzt. In der 65. Minu­te steck­te der erst 17-jäh­ri­ge Neu­zu­gang Nele Land­graf den Ball für die star­ten­de Julia Fel­lisch durch, die mit einem Schuss ins lan­ge Eck zum 2:0 erhöh­te und damit den End­stand herstellte.

Am kom­men­den Wochen­en­de steht für die Frens­dor­fe­rin­nen das erste Aus­wärts­spiel bei der TUS Bad Aib­ling an. Die Bad Aib­lin­ge­rin­nen haben ihr erstes Sai­son­spiel eben­falls für sich ent­schei­den kön­nen. Anstoß ist Sams­tag um 17:00 Uhr. Die zwei­te Mann­schaft des SV Frens­dorf spielt eben­falls aus­wärts am Sonn­tag um 10:30 Uhr beim TSV Oberlauter.

Unbridled Creativity

Everyone goes for something different; they might be attracted to a name, a complication, a colour, or simply the Only Watch mission. But some pieces stand out more than others, by the sheer fact that they are so very different from what we would normally expect from their creators. These singular timepieces, objects and atypical developments venture into uncharted aesthetic waters, spectacularly over-delivering on the brief of the famous watch auction.

Bell & Ross: death becomes you

Take Bell & Ross. The brand has produced plenty of skull watches, but an animated sapphire skull inside a sapphire case is not something we’ve seen before. The BR 01 Cyber Skull Sapphire won’t be to everyone’s taste, but it wasn’t designed to be a crowd-pleaser. It’s a strongly individualistic creation, and a manifesto for what can be achieved with sapphire, ingenuity and provocation.

Patek Philippe: guardian of the temple

One reason many people love Only Watch is for the incredible diversity of unique pieces it produces. That’s why, alongside a Bell & Ross sapphire skull, you might also find a classic table clock by Patek Philippe. This piece is intended for the most discerning collector; probably a traditionalist, and an investor. The Patek Philippe Complicated Desk Clock for Only Watch 2021 is driven by a dedicated movement featuring a perpetual calendar movement with weekly calendar and a 31-day power reserve. This is not a strikingly original creation. Nevertheless, more than any other timepiece, it embodies the centuries-old values of Haute Horlogerie. For Patek Philippe, this is no mere stylistic exercise: it is a duty and a responsibility that the watchmaker assumes completely – one might even be tempted to say, perfectly.

F.P. Journe: a helping hand?

Between the two we might perhaps insert the F.P. Journe x Francis Ford Coppola FFC Blue, which combines a little of both. Like the former, it has a highly creative and disruptive dial but, like the latter, it is built on an exquisite manufacture movement. The watch is the product of a meeting between Journe and Coppola, who asked if it would be possible to tell the time with just one hand. The Geneva watchmaker spent 10 years making this concept a reality, creating a manual (in the most literal sense!) automaton – a hand whose fingers move apart to show the time. Ballouard: It’s only rock ’n’ roll (and we like it!)

But let’s not forget the independent watchmakers. The Half Time “Vinyl 33 rpm” by Ludovic Ballouard is a spectacular and mysterious piece. All that is visible is the Roman numeral of the hour, at twelve o’clock. The other numbers are scrambled and unreadable, as if to remind the viewer to live in the present. The figures are arranged around a disc engraved with grooves like an LP record. Floating above it, the familiar mechanical arm points to the retrograde minutes at 6 o’clock. It’s clever, intelligent, witty, unique, 100% independent, and it looks great. What more could you want?

Trilobe: Only Watch’s only true work of art

Another unmissable piece is the wonderful collaboration between Trilobe and Daniel Buren. This clock is a work of art, not just in consideration of its watchmaking credentials, like the Patek Philippe clock, but also because its design was executed by hand by the famous artist and sculptor. This is a work of art in the strictest sense, and could prove to be one of Only Watch’s shrewdest investments, given how rarely Buren collaborations come up.

Montblanc: a major anniversary

And finally we bring you one more piece that, if you weren’t paying close attention, might slip under the radar: the Montblanc Star Legacy. This unique piece celebrates the 200th anniversary of the invention of the “chrono-graph” (a device that literally translated time into a graph, on paper) by Nicolas Rieussec. This fundamental, foundational piece, sumptuously executed in yellow gold, showcases the barleycorn guilloché motif that is a signature of the manufacture, now in the hands of Managing Director Laurent Lecamp, from whom we expect many more great things.
