It took over 600 hours of research to develop the case on this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Perpetuel Calendar Watch. It appears to have been worth it. The matte black brushed finish on the 41mm ceramic case is resistant to scratches, temperature, and age, so it pairs well with the moonphase indicator, which only requires correction once every 125 years. The 5134 movement also powers the date, date, month, leap year, hours, and minute functions, all of which appear on the slate gray "Grande Tapisserie" dial. It's finished with a matching ceramic bracelet with a titanium clasp.
Inspired by the classic Minerva Rally Timer stopwatch, the Montblanc TimeWalker Chronograph Rally Timer Counter Watch is the rare wristwatch that isn't necessarily bound to your wrist. Thanks to strap attachments that fold underneath the case, it can convert from a wristwatch to pocket watch with ease, and can even clip onto a metal plate for use as a dashboard clock. It's powered by a manually-wound monopusher calibre MB M16.29 movement, protected inside a water-resistant 50mm satin titanium case. Limited to just 100 examples.
Inspired by the symmetrical bodies of jellyfish, the MB&F HM7 Aquapod Watch employs a radially symmetric design. Immediately noticeable underneath the domed sapphire is the central flying tourbillion, which sits atop a vertical movement that includes a winding rotor with "tentacles" crafted from a block of solid titanium. As a water-focused watch, it has a unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel, although it's water resistant to only 150 feet. The indications, which rotate around the center, are treated with Super-Luminova for readability under the surface, as are select rotor segments, letting you appreciate the movement even in darkness. It's finished with an aircraft-grade rubber strap and is limited to just 33 examples in grade 5 titanium with a blue bezel, and 66 examples in 18 karat red gold with a black bezel.
Like the standard Type 1 before it, the new Ressence Type 1 Squared Watch forgoes traditional hands, instead using a series of rotating discs to indicate the time. Unlike its predecessor, the 1 Squared has a cushion-shaped case crafted from 316 stainless steel instead of titanium that's thinner as well, thanks to the absence of a sapphire back. Instead, it has a retractable lever that's used to set the time, corresponding to the discs' movement in a 1:1 ratio just like the key-wind clocks and toys of old. It's finished with an interchangeable bracelet system, and is available in four colorways.
Named for the Instagrammers that hashtag photos of their watches every week, the Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday Watch blends together several vintage touches in a new limited edition. The overall design is inspired by the "Alaska Project III" model built for NASA in 1978, distinguished by its brushed matte finish stainless steel case and radial subdials. Speaking of subdials, it also sports a "reverse panda" dial first introduced in 1966, joined by a vintage Omega logo and matte black aluminum bezel ring. It's powered by the same calibre 1861 movement as the Moonwatch, and arrives with its own leather watch roll, a vintage-cut brown leather strap, a spare white and black striped NATO strap, and a strap changing tool. Limited to just 2012 examples, it's also the first Omega to be sold directly online.
The Apple Watch is already fairly rugged, despite its sleek appearance. The MTM Status Apple Watch Case will make it far more so. Made to fit any 38mm Series 2 model, this burly add-on adds a pair of circular micro-dials to the side and standard lugs to the top and bottom. You can mix-and-match between dial options, including a 12-hour clock, compass, digital date, or digital clock, each available in different styles. The case itself is made from either anodized 7075 aluminum or Grade 2 Titanium, accepts 24mm MTM bands or straps, and arrives in packaging that's designed for re-use as a charging dock.

Made using Cordura fabric from Carhartt and repurposed automotive insulation from GM, the Empwr Coat is built to meet the needs of the homeless. As part of the parent company's mission, it's assembled by formerly homeless individuals, and transforms from a water-resistant jacket, to a sleeping bag, to an over-the-shoulder bag when not in use. The cost of each coat goes to cover, labor, materials, and overhead, and you can rest assured it will mean far more to its recipient than whatever gadget you were planning on buying instead.

Sapphire is commonly used to cover watch dials, and often, used on the opposite side to provide a view into the inner workings. The Bell & Ross BR-X1 Tourbillon Sapphire Watch goes one better by building its entire case out of sapphire. The process takes hours of machining and polishing just to make a single case, comprised of nine separate parts. In addition to its namesake Flying Tourbillion, it also has a mono-pusher chronograph function, both of which are highly visible thanks to the case. Rhodium plating on the markers and hands joins the Superluminova in creating a timepiece that almost glows in certain light. Finished with a strap made from translucent rubber and metallic Kevlar weaving.

Adidas has been experimenting with 3D printing as a way of making shoes for a while. Only now can you actually buy a pair. Being released exclusively through Adidas Confirmed in New York, the Adidas 3D Runner is an all-black look at the future of footwear. It has an engineered 3D structure that's more dense in high-stress areas and less dense in others for optimal performance and weight, and is paired with a 3D printed heel counter integrated into the midsole and a black Primeknit upper. In the future, the company hopes to match the 3D structure to your own personal footprint, but until then, these will do nicely.
When you see a pair of Stan Smiths, they are typically clad in leather from heel to toe. But with the chill of winter invading, even one of the most iconic sneakers of all-time has to prepare for the cold. The Adidas Stan Smith PC Wool Sneakers are equipped for the season, featuring a warm wool upper and leather lining that add to the comfort. As always, these sneakers look the part, continuing the Stan Smith tradition, but with a warm winter coat to help keep the weather at bay.
Inspired by the outfits worn by the heroes (and villains) of Rogue One, these Columbia x Star Wars Jackets are a great way to show your allegiance without looking like a full-sized action figure. The collection includes a light jacket modeled after Jyn Erso's, a heavy parka that's based on Captain Cassian Andor's, and a shell jacket inspired by the armor of the Death Troopers, ideal for those with dark intentions. All three are made using Colombia's well-tested materials, so unlike that replica blaster, these will actually perform out in the real world.
Once some of the world's most recognized shoes, PF Flyers Center Hi Shoe continues to stand the test of time. Worn by NBA players and standard issue by the US Army in their heyday, a whole new generation of footwear fans are falling for these iconic sneakers. Made from premium materials and featuring the distinctive, vertically ribbed toe guard, treaded outsole and Posture Foundation insert — it's easy to see why the Center Hi has had such staying power. To celebrate their 80th anniversary, PF Flyers expanded the collection to include new colors and expanded sizes of this true American classic.

The latest release in the Hawker Harrier line from AVI-8 continues to draw its name and inspiration from the unique avionic engineering behind the Hawker Harrier, and its custom built Pegasus engine from Rolls Royce. And just like the Pegasus, the Avi Pegasus AV-4047 Watch's Miyota Japanese made 21 jewel self-winding movement is the heart and soul of this watch. It registers time using a set of 3 individual discs showing the hour, minutes, and hands rotating across the layered dial. Each timepiece is crafted out of Marine Grade 316 stainless steel with a sapphire lens and fits comfortably on your wrist thanks to a buffalo hide genuine leather strap with bi-color detailing. Available in Solid Stainless Steel or in a version featuring Titanium Carbide plated onto the case.

Most guys dread the thought of clothes shopping and dread the thought of having to try clothes on at a store even more. With Mott & Bow, you can say goodbye to that painful process, and still get a well designed, great fitting pair of premium jeans. Mott & Bow is all about comfort and quality. They use different types of denim from left-hand weave Italian denim for extreme softness (seriously, they're really soft) to 4-way stretch denim for optimal flexibility. Mott & Bow cuts out the middleman and sells directly to you so they can sell their jeans at half the price of jeans of the same quality. They will also ship you two waist sizes at no extra charge to make sure you get the right fit — just send back the pair that doesn't fit at no additional cost. Finally, you can afford premium denim that fits without an awkward trip to a department store. And keep an eye out, as several new styles are on the way in 2017.

Meant to be a signifier of your worth — not in terms of money, but in terms of your importance to friends and family — the Bre & Co. Origami Watch is not your typical timepiece. As the name suggests, the multi-faceted stainless steel case is inspired by the Japanese art of folding paper, and it holds an Eterna 309A movement that powers the three hands and date function. The back, however, holds a surprise — a half-ounce American eagle liberty gold coin embedded inside, to serve as a tactile reminder of your value.

It's hard to imagine trying to improve on the Filson Cruiser. After all, it's been a Filson fixture for over 100 years. But the Filson Long Cruiser Jacket is probably the best update we can think of for this iconic piece of outerwear. Made with the same 24-oz. Mackinaw Wool and pocket design as the original, it's been extended to three-quarter length for extra warmth and protection. This version also has flannel-lined handwarmers, horn buttons, and a vented lower back opening with snap. Upper lining has also been added to the Cruiser to ensure that this classic look keeps you safe from whatever winter throws your way.
