The changing of administrations after an election is one of the most chaotic times in government. There can be a total change of policy and personnel involving potentially thousands of people — and the race is on as the outgoing administration tries to cement its policy in the face of an incoming one. HBO had unprecedented access to the last year of the Obama administration as they prepared to hand over the reins of government while trying to keep all their work over the last eight years from being undone.

Leaning on decades of audio experience, Grado took their time developing their first Bluetooth headphone. It was worth the wait. The GW100 delivers the effortless detail and power the brand is known for, using the same signature drivers.

There's nothing quite as mesmerizing as a tourbillion complication on a luxury timepiece. And Era has not only created a beautiful example, but they've done it at a price that's considerably less than the majority of tourbillions on the market. The Prometheus Titan is built around a 44m hand-polished case with ultra-scratch resistant Sapphire glass that houses a dial with a GMT hour hand, day/night complication, — and of course — the elegant flow of the single-axis manual tourbillion movement. The platinum bezel with 78 round GH colored diamonds weighing 2.3 carats add an extra layer of class and brilliance, and the timepiece is finished with a Hornback style leather strap with quick release bars. The Titan arrives in a box made from pure custom wood that is lacquered carefully over hours and the watch is backed by Era's two-year international warranty.
