The Fascinating Legacy of the 2010 TUDOR Heritage Chrono Watch

The Fascinating Legacy of the 2010 TUDOR Heritage Chrono Watch

If it’s not the celestial bodies, man has depended on earthly resources (sand-clock) to keep an account of the precious moments that tick away. With age and technology, refinements to the system gave us pocket watches, grandfather clocks and even the humble wristwatch. Subtle significance in fictions like Paths of Glory, where a watch played the crucial evidence that rocked Edmund Hillary’s claim to Everest, or real-time standstills found at ground zero, a watch is a Precious Heritage that we all identify with. The 2010 TUDOR Heritage Chrono Watch is one significant addition that you’d like to inherit.

Dosh Wallets 2.0 Review

Dosh Wallets 2.0 Review

We reviewed the original Dosh wallet in 2008 but the Aussie company is back with more styles, more colors, and a series of bespoke art wallets to choose from. I also want to introduce you to our new review editors Bret and Greg. Both switched from traditional wallets to give the Dosh a spin. Hit the jump for their review.

That's No Newspaper for Rain

That’s No Newspaper for Rain

It’s a well-made piece of water-resistant canvas made for rain. It’s called the “Newspaper Rain Bag” and it’s 45.5 x 30.5cm of ironic rain-blocking paper for your everyday use. It’s also a bag that can carry your books! You’ll note not only the cleverl real-world sizing, but the well-placed strap and cover story (complete with a picture of the news paper ON the news paper.) It’s everything you need in a newspaper sized bag that also block the weather. Everything in the world!

New Nooka Zub Zayu

New Nooka Zub Zayu

Ooh look! Nooka just added a new watch to their lineup. The Zayu is the latest in the Zub series. I’m particularly keen on the curved back because nobody’s wrist is flat. It’s also the first watch to have a “sleepmode” to conserve battery. The asymmetric design may look odd but you can flip the display to accommodate lefties and righties. That little notch sits perfectly above your sleeve – BRILLS! Five colors to choose from, see them after the jump. Pre-order now for $175. I know I am.

TAG-Heuer Formula-1 Watch

TAG-Heuer Formula-1 Watch

As we know TAG-Heuer is celebrating 150 years of being in the business and The Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph is already on our wishlist. So it comes as a great pleasure when designers decide to commemorate the event with their own refreshing take. Inspired by the TAG-Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 36 RS Caliper Chronograph model, designer Peter Vardai chose to model his version on Formula-1 and Mercedes-Benz combo. Awesome!

Sphere of Dry Shoes

Sphere of Dry Shoes

Of all the footwear dryers in the world, boy oh boy, this seems to me to be the best one I’ve seen all year. I don’t have that much experience with shoe thawers or dryers, but I do remember putting my boots on the heater when I was a kid to dry off all the snow. That I remember. I also remember that when they were put on the heater, they’d get mostly dry, but there’d always be that little pocket of squish left over. Nasty. This “Orbicle” we’re talking about here has no squish.

Bright Lights and TRON Time

Bright Lights and TRON Time

How do you read time… if you’re INSIDE a computer?! This is a question we’ll all have to ask when we’re at that new TRON movie whenever it decides it’s ready to come out. I’m anticipating the pants off it, and so is designer Scott Galloway, who today presents to the world this TRON-inspired watch called the “Seven-R-Zero-N” aka 7R0N. This watch is rare in that it lends attention to not only the face, but to the strap as well.

Watch to Time, Turbines to Speed!

Watch to Time, Turbines to Speed!

Behold, the ancient power of windmills! It’s no mistake that windmills have been so prevalent in horror movies over the course of our recent past – the very thought of such a majestic beast being blown to bits gives me the shivers! Projects design group reminds us that windmills are amongst humankind’s oldest energy sources, turning water and wind into pure power! Thusly, they’ve made an object to remind us of that excellent trade here, in the Turbino watch.
