Many of us would shudder at the mere thought of being disconnected for even a day. No directions, no reviews, no meaningless status updates from that girl who sat two seats behind you in high school calculus. Without the endless knowledge of the internet at your disposal, a person could go mad. Scary mad.
Just as Breaking Bad is getting ready to ride off into a meth-induced sunset, AMC is bringing in a new original series. The 10-episode cop drama (don't roll your eyes just yet) will follow vengeful partners Mark Strong and Lennie James (yeah, that guy from The Walking Dead) as they scum up their Detroit department with murder, corruption, and all that other dirty cop stuff. Premieres summer 2013.
The 1960's was a revolutionary time for diving, with significant improvements to underwater diving apparatus and underwater timing instruments. Leading the charge was Oris, and now they've reached back into their archives for the Oris Divers Sixty-Five Watch. The follow-up to the critically acclaimed blue-dialed version, the green Oris arrives with an updated look of the original while retaining retro details like the slim case line, thin bezel, and trapezoid date window. It's also taken advantage of 21st-century watchmaking techniques with Swiss Made automatic movement, bubble-curved glass made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and anti-reflective coating on the inside to reduce glare and increase legibility while underwater. This direct descendant of one of Oris's first diver's comes with a choice of three straps and a metal bracelet, and successfully melds the groundbreaking features of the original with modern enhancements for a diver that's in a class by itself.
Already known for their quality craftsmanship, Shinola recently branched out into the world of audio equipment with the release of the Runwell Turntable. The Runwell Turntable features a built-in phono preamplifier and a belt driven pulley, and every component and element were carefully sourced from manufacturers around the globe before being built at the brand new Shinola Audio factory in Detroit under the watchful eye of Alex Rosson, Director of Audio. They might be the new kid on the block, but the Runwell is already in the conversation with some of the best turntables on the market, and should make even hardcore audiophiles pay attention.
