The complex inner lives that humans have versus the seemingly simple ones of other animals is thought to be the process of millions of years of small evolutionary steps leading up to us. Kurzgesagt looks at some of the scientific — and not so scientific — theories for the number one thing that makes humans truly human.

The Club Campus family is one timepiece stronger and much sportier after the 2019 Baselworld announcement of the Club Sport. The Nomos timepiece expands the Club line with a new in-house automatic movement, and an unexpected all-new steel bracelet. Departing from the watchmaker's norm of only using leather and fabric straps, the steel bracelet is crafted in-house with 145 individual parts and an elegant deployment clasp. The watch also has an impressive 300 meters of water-resistance, a screw down crown, and a dark marine black dial with numerals, hands, and typography that are loaded with Super-Luminova — ensuring you're more than prepared for your next trip underwater. A red ring on the inside of the crown acts as a visible warning if it's not secure before you dive beneath the surface. Small seconds and date complication round out the timepiece, and the neomatik date caliber is protected by domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating inside and out. The Club Sport might be one of the toughest Nomos timepieces to date, and a versatile blend of a dress, dive, and everyday watch with a sporty feel.

The debate over technology in golf isn't new — it's been a point of contention for over 100 years. But in the early 2000s, the ever-rising average drive distance on the PGA Tour shot up six yards practically overnight. The reason was the Titleist Pro V1. The solid-core ball provided the best of both worlds in feel and distance — and the debate over its influence continues today.
