With the ability to open, chill, pour, and preserve, the Plum wine preserver combines all wine gadgets into one sleek package. Select your bottle and insert it into the device. Inside, a camera scans the label to identify the wine and automatically begin cooling to the ideal temperature. Whether it's a cork or metal cap, a double-cored needle punctures the top. As wine is released, argon gas fills the bottle to help prevent oxidation. A single canister can preserve up to 150 bottles, keeping each one fresh for up to 90 days so when you're ready, a perfect glass of wine is always waiting to be poured.

It's no secret that coral reefs are declining. But thanks to the Coral Restoration Foundation, there is hope that these underwater ecosystems can make a comeback. Inspired by divers who are making this restoration a reality comes the Staghorn Restoration Watch. Part of the Oris Aquis collection, the Staghorn features automatic movement and a uni-directional rotating diver's bezel with a ceramic insert for timing dives. It also features a 43.5mm stainless steel case, is water-resistant to 300 meters, and has a dark blue dial and bright orange minute scale for visibility and to reflect the color of Staghorn coral.
