The Zoom Vaporfly Elite 4% was already a near-perfect marathon shoe. But its Flyknit upper retained water. In an effort to solve this problem, the Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elite Flyprint was born. Flyprint is a Nike innovation that is produced through a type of 3D printing called solid deposit modeling, which allows for different densities of material to be placed at different points on the upper. The layout of the weave is partially determined using computational design and can be quickly customized for individual athletes resulting in added comfort and stability. The near-translucent upper is porous, so it doesn't hold water, and is 6% lighter than its Flyknit cousin, yet seamlessly bonds with Flyknit components like the tongue and collar. They will be on the feet of Eluid Kipchoge as he tackles his next marathon in London on April 22nd, and a limited run of the shoes will be available in the city that weekend via the Nike app.

Created using pink noise, the ultra tranquil tunes will make anywhere the ultimate chill out spot.

An avid watch collector himself, Tom Ford brings more than a little knowledge to bear on his eponymous 001 Watch. The Swiss-built timepiece sports a simple, timeless design with Arabic numerals and a rectangular form, and is made in collaboration with Bedrock Manufacturing, the company behind both Fossil and Shinola. Little is known about the movement, but we do know there will be two sizes available, in 18-karat yellow gold, brushed or polished stainless steel, and matte black DLC. Matching each size will be a large range of interchangeable straps in hand-woven braided leather, stitched leather, pebbled grain leather, and alligator, all in a variety of colors.

Named for its standout feature, the Nocs Atelier Seconds Watch is an exercise in restraint. Its black PVD-coated stainless steel case has a brushed finish and holds a PVD-coated matte finish dial with raised black markers and black minute and hour hands. The second hand is finished in silver, standing out against the muted background and offering a meditation on time itself. It's powered by a pair of Japanese-made Miyota quartz movements with a four-year battery life, is water resistant to 160 feet, and is finished with a black NATO strap, making it the perfect complement for any black-dominated outfit.

After years of fine-tuning their original, Machine Era has perfected their wallet with an even slimmer, lighter model. Made from aerospace grade titanium that's been coated with a black DLC PVD coating, your cards and cash are held in place with an elastic band, and its slim, ultralight profile is ideal for front pocket carry. The wallet, which holds up to seven credit cards, is also RFID-blocking, keeping the card chips secure from hackers. A small opening in the back allows you to quickly access items with the swipe of a thumb or open bottles with the flip of a wrist.

Originally made for the British Ministry of Defense, 1950s NATO specification watches set the standard for pilots. Considered by many as the quintessential pilot's watch in its heyday, this reproduction stays true to the original's integrity while adding some valuable upgrades. The MKIII features a case manufactured and hand finished in Zurich and is offered in brushed stainless steel with black and grey NATO straps — or with a sleek, non-reflective, matte black finish with black strap — often used by special forces units for covert operations. The dial is black on both with military-style broad arrow hands. Automatic movement is at its core, never needing a battery, along with the hacking function vital for synchronization.

A staple of soccer fields inside and out since its introduction in 1950, the Adidas Samba gets a tasteful update in this Sock Primeknit variant. As the name suggests, this new sneaker recreates the classic leather and suede of the original with a one-piece knit upper that both adapts to your foot and adds extra support. It's paired with a brown gum rubber outsole that makes clear its ties to the past. Available in black or white.
Unimatic pairs minimalist design with a reverence for iconic diving watches for the Modello Uno U1-DWN. Made in Italy, it's presented with a brushed stainless steel case finished with black DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating, a pared down bezel that's erased of all markings save for a simple "pearl", and a high-contrast white dial — made even more visible in low light conditions thanks to Super-Luminova indexing and hands. It's powered by an automatic Seiko NH35A movement with a 41-hour power reserve. Each watch comes with a heavy duty NATO strap and a water-repellent leather strap. Only 150 were made, each is individually numbered, and the design will never be reproduced.

Founded by Oliver Ike and Marc Newson in 1994, Ikepod was one of the more interesting watch companies of the era. It filed for bankruptcy in 2003, but having found new owners — even if Newson has since left for Apple — it's being reborn with a new line of Ikepod Watches. Details on the new timepieces are scant, but we do know they'll sport thick, circular designs from Emmanuel Gueit that pay homage to Newson's past work, come in at least simple two-hand and chronograph models, and will be available via a crowdfunding campaign later this year.
Introduced in 1978, the P'8478 were the world's first sunglasses with replaceable lenses. These Porsche Design 40Y P'8478 Sunglasses were created to celebrate the design's 40th anniversary.

Equipped with a flint igniter, these stainless steel cufflinks can either light your black tie cigar or get you out of a precarious situation. Whatever your needs, the refillable reservoir can hold up to 50 lights, and a spring-loaded button ensures the flame goes out upon release.

Inspired by the Sympathique built by Swiss watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1793, the Urwerk AMC Clock & Watch pairs an atomic tabletop clock with a wrist-bound timepiece. The 55-pound clock is made from a solid hunk of aluminum and has a special cradle for the watch that allows the clock to wind the timepiece, set the time, and adjust the balance rate. And while the watch looks like a traditional, if chunky, timepiece, the clock could easily sub in as an elaborate movie prop.
Tough enough for the trail yet sleek enough for everyday wear, the Ecco Exostrike Dyneema Edition Boot strikes an ideal balance between utility and style. Its upper is made from Dyneema Bonded leather that's five times stronger than typical hide yet lightweight, letting you attack the day without worrying about scuffs or tears. The Phorene midsole provides plenty of bounce, the molded heel cup gives it added stability, and the chunky rubber outsole handles any terrain with ease.
Inspired by military pocket watches from the '20s and '30s, the Rado HyperChrome Ultra Light Watch is one of the most minimal timepieces you can find. It's made from a high-tech ceramic — Code name Si3N4 — so it weighs less than two ounces, or so little you barely know it's there. It's available with a brown leather strap, but also with a brown NATO strap that speaks to its utilitarian nature. Limited to just 500 pieces.
Race car bodies have transitioned from metal to carbon fiber. So has the TAG Heuer Monaco Bamford Watch. Drawing from motorsports, the team at Bamford have built a 39mm carbon body and paired it with a reinterpreted dial marked by aquatic blue highlights. The smaller size, coupled with the materials, makes it a lightweight and surprisingly stealthy choice. It's finished with a black alligator strap and is one of the more unique Monaco variants available.
In the 1960's, the U.S. government created military specifications for what would become some of the most iconic timepieces ever. MWC spent countless hours studying some of these legendary watches, and built the GG-W-113, named after the government designation for the watch spec issued to military pilots during the Vietnam war. The best replica of a classic Vietnam-era timepiece you'll find, the watch features a classic black dial with an inner ring to mark 24-hour time and 60-second increments, and a matte stainless steel case that's slightly larger than the originals (39.9mm compared to 36mm on the originals). The watch is built around an automatic movement (unlike the manually-wound military versions) with hacking function — a process where the movement stops when the crown is pulled, a feature that was needed to synchronize soldier's watches during critical missions. Each watch comes with both black and khaki military webbing straps.
