first-atomic-wristwatch-01

We honestly didn’t know that the world’s first true atomic watch was barely hitting the scene. The so-called atomic watches out there don’t really do the job, having to rely on government radio signals that aren’t always in range. This one however is being dubbed by its creator as the “world’s first true atomic wristwatch.”

Nose Art DNA Watch

nose-art-dna-watch-00

I know the Nose Art DNA watch by Romain Jerome isn’t anywhere near my budget, but the craftsmanship behind this watch is just too damn good to pass up. Taking unusual inspiration from the famous “Pink Lady” Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress aircraft, the Swiss-made watch is incredible in design without being too eccentric. It boasts a 46mm case that houses a mechanical self-winding Valjoux-based chronograph movement with 42 hours of power reserve, a sapphire crystal face and a calf leather NATO strap inspired by aviator straps – flip the watch over and you’ll find that it has an individually painted pin-up girl hidden behind the case. If the timepiece happens to fit your budget, pick it up in a black PVD-coated steel case with a green and brown camouflage dial or the red gold bezel with black PVD crowns and greyscale camouflage dial, but that’s only if you want to pay $3,000 more. The watches are limited to just 99 pieces of each colorway, which makes them even more unique than their design.

Warmer weather is (hopefully) approaching and it’s only right that we gear up with boardshorts, sandals, sunglasses and whatever the hell else we use during the summer months. If your local mall still isn’t carrying the right fits, then the Lightning Bolt Spring/Summer Collection has you covered. Their extensive collection consists of a slew of graphic t-shirts and tanks, boardshorts, caps, towels and appropriately patterned button-downs. You can basically pick out your whole summer wardrobe at Bolt’s online shop, and even if you don’t have money to drop, they just revamped their website with an updated blog and a new music feature called “Found Sound.” Oh, and I suggest you take a full lunch break to scroll through their extensive shop.

Sunglasses Made from Louisville Sluggers

sunglasses-made-from-louisville-sluggers-00

Baseball season is underway, which means opening day, hot dogs and a whole lot of booze. Shwood also wanted to get in on the action of opening day, so they teamed up with Louisville, KY’s Hillerich & Bradsbury Co. to bring you a collection of sunglasses made from Louisville Sluggers. Limited to a certain number, the Canby and Haystack-styles from Shwood were worthy enough to obtain the Louisville treatment. They even take inspiration from paint-dripped bats by adding a two-tone black and white lacquered paint job, while each pair of Shwood for Louisville Slugger Original Collection is flame-tempered for added strength and a unique woodgrain aesthetic in which Slugger finishes their bats. You’ll receive your OG sunglasses in pretty packaging along with a branded bat, custom trading cards, branded pouch and a leather carrying case. You’ll pretty much be good to go.

Strangers to wooden wearables we are not, but these wood bow ties from BÖ by Mansouri are probably the best that have ever done it. Offering up a wide variety of styles, all of the bow ties are handcrafted in Vancouver, Canada from either North American Walnut or North American Maple wood. Styles consist of different cuts or patterns in the wood or around the edges of the bow tie. All of the styles come with an artisanal Austrian Paper Twine in the center of the bow tie and an Israeli leather strap to hold it around your neck. Pick one of these up, and your chances of getting lucky will become greater than the Daft Punk and Pharrell song.
