Every year at the Bonneville Salt Flats, a group of daredevils gathers to do one thing — go as fast as possible on anything with wheels. Motorcycles, cars, and even jet-powered monsters that have more in common with aircraft than anything on road spend one week in the desert trying to break records. Director Skylar Nielsen talks to these speed freaks about what keeps them coming back.
An artificial island, a Buddist guru, endangered birds, and the UN building — New York City's U Thant Island has a very interesting history. For an island measuring about 100 by 200 feet, it has a lot of history, even for a place like New York. Vox takes a trip down the East RIver to U Thant, and learns a little about canoeing in the process.
Inspired by military watches and classic divers, the Navi Ocean Watch from Timex is a standout member of the Pioneers collection. The timepiece boasts a highly legible black dial with Arabic numeral hour markers, a ring to note military time, luminous hands, and a quick date feature. It's powered by quartz movement while the rotating bezel features an elapsed time scale, and the crown is protected by crown guards for extra security. Each Navi Ocean is finished with a brown leather strap stonewashed in Italy.
Diameter: 38mm / Lug width: 18mm / Depth rating: 100 meters
The Diver Blue from Bell & Ross is versatile enough for a formal affair and sporty enough for your next subaquatic adventure. The timepiece leads with the iconic Bell & Ross square case — made of satin-polished stainless-steel — which frames the more traditional unidirectional round bezel and dial. The dark navy dial features Super-Luminova filled numerals, applied indices, along with metal skeletonized hands for peak visibility on land or in the dark depths of the sea. The Blue is powered by caliber BR-CAL.302 automatic movement and finished with interchangeable blue rubber and ultra-resilient black synthetic fabric straps.
