So as some of you may have gathered by now I had to unexpectedly cancel my annual visit to Baselworld this year at the last minute. This was due to circumstances outside of my control and was made all the more frustrating by the fact that my prepaid flights and hotel were non-refundable. Consequently, I have not been able to get hands on with all the new watches I wanted to (well, not yet anyway). That being said, there were still a number of cool new releases this year that – money permitting – I would snap up sight unseen. Here’s a selection of them.
There is nothing worse than seeing a guy wearing a nice watch with cheap, tatty old shoes on. Literally, nothing worse. Unfortunately it’s a surprisingly common occurrence. For some reason, when it comes to dressing up it seems that shoes are an afterthought for a lot of guys, as opposed to the foundation of their entire outfit. We wanted to help correct this egregious fashion faux pas by introducing you to a viable solution – Ace Marks shoes.
With the latest sci-fi instalment of George Lucas’ epic saga behind us, the fans of Star Wars have been spoiled with a whole raft of toys and gadgets inspired by the movie. In the pen world, S.T. Dupont was tapped to transform the legendary X-Wing and Tie Fighters into fine writing instruments, a tall order to say the least. So, how did they do? Read on to find out.
So by now you would have heard that one of the watches everyone’s talking about at this year’s Baselworld is the new Rolex Cosmograph Daytona in steel. The big news of course is that the iconic chronograph now sports a black cerachrom bezel. Now this may not seem like that big a deal to ordinary folks like you and I but it’s definitely gotten Rolex fans into a lather. Read on to find out why.
Today we’re taking a quick look at the newly announced Edge Double Barrel from Armin Strom, a kick ass watch from one of our under-the-radar favorites. Intended as something of a statement piece, the Edge Double Barrel will be making its presence felt on the wrist in more ways than one and, Armin Strom hopes, help convey the brand’s growing sense of confidence in the unique aesthetic it has pioneered. Sounds like a tall order; read on to find out if the Edge Double Barrel is up to the challenge.
