Inspired by the iridescent wings of the Blue Morpho butterfly, this new jacket from Vollebak has over two billion microscopic blue glass spheres embedded in resin on the jacket's surface. The glass spheres create an entirely reflective jacket that is constantly changing color while you ski or snowboard. The Blue Morpho is engineered for a max range of motion with plenty of room for a hoodie underneath. The jacket also is fully seam-sealed, waterproof, and includes an ocean-racing style marine hood and high collar. The visibly stunning piece of outerwear acts like a mirror for whatever light conditions you're in, with a liquid metal appearance under the sun that shifts to a bionic blue at night with any camera flash, torch, or searchlight.

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.
