Bona fide pop superstar Ed Sheeran's upcoming album — No.6 Collaborations Project — is a genre-bending record full of collaborations with other pop stars. Sheeran teams up with Chance the Rapper and Philly crooner PnB Rock on the track "Cross Me" in which all three nice guys defend an unnamed lady's honor from an unnamed transgression. The best part though is CGI Sheeran pulling off motion-captured dance moves and raining colored balls everywhere.
Jackson Pollock's abstract masterpieces were revolutionary, but like all artists, Pollock owed a debt to those that had come before. From the Impressionists to Picasso, artists were rejecting the photo-like realism that had defined painting up until the mid-19th century. Nerdwriter looks at how Pollock was an evolution of art and more than just a revolution.
Based in Hamburg, Germany, Sternglas creates functional, no-nonsense timepieces inspired by the Bauhaus design movement. The Topograph is one of their latest releases, centered around a black brushed stainless steel case and black dial with thin white markings. Among the highly legible indices is a Rehaut with each second inscribed that conveys the appearance of a technical measuring device. The minimalist watch is powered by rock-solid Miyota 821A automatic movement that's visible through the crystal case back and protected by slightly domed sapphire glass. Short, curved lugs make for a comfortable fit along with a leather strap that is handmade in Germany that can be swapped out in seconds for another thanks to the built-in quick release spring bars.
Case Diameter: 42mm / Case Thickness: 10mm / Lug Width: 20mm / Depth rating: 5 bar / Movement: Miyota 821A Automatic Movement / Power Reserve: 42 hours / Jewels: 21
Oris was founded in 1904 in the village of Hölstein which is surrounded by the Waldenburg Valley. The Calibre 115 draws inspiration from that location and continues the company's rich tradition of premium mechanical timepieces. The new timepiece features a fully skeletonized movement — including the barrel at 12 o'clock — so the watchmaker's talents are on full display. As you wind the crown, the mainspring coils until it's fully wound and ready to deliver ten days of uninterrupted power. It's housed within a 44mm brushed titanium case that employs a design passed down from a 1938 model and supplemented by a jet engine turbine blade motif introduced into the Big Crown ProPilot's bezel a few years ago. Additional details include Super-LumiNova filled hands and indices, double-sided anti-reflective domed sapphire glass, and a multi-piece titanium bracelet or a black leather strap.

Aside from its redemption in Back to the Future, the DeLorean became a symbol of '80s excess and the hubris of its founder, John DeLorean. Nothing represents this better than the three DMC-12s that were plated in 24-karat gold. Two more were done by customers, but the three remaining originals are a perfect metaphor for one of the most infamous collapses in automotive history.
