In this six-part documentary series, director Errol Morris explores the strange circumstances surrounding the tragic event through interviews and dramatic reenactments. It's set for streaming on Netflix December 15, 2017.

A novel take on a GMT, the Nomos Zurich World Time Watch gives the wearer easy access to the time in major cities around the world. A recessed circle displays the names of cities such as Berlin, New York, Rio, and Sydney. The city indicated by the arrow at 12 o'clock is represented by the main rhodium-plated hour and minute hands, while a smaller "digital" readout shows the hour at home, and a sub-dial at 6 o'clock shows the seconds. The complex movement is visible through the sapphire crystal case back, while the stainless steel case is set on a black Horween leather strap.

A classic garnish, the cocktail cherry is a welcome addition to plenty of mixed drinks but seems to be best suited alongside rye whiskey or bourbon. Grown in Oregon, these cherries spend time maturing in Kentucky bourbon to give them a soft texture and a boozy bite. They're the perfect addition to an Old Fashioned or a Manhattan, and even work well when added to a hard seltzer during the summer — if you can resist eating them straight out of the jar. Sold as a set of 3 jars, so you don't run out.
Arrives as three jars, 13.5 oz. per jar.
Last year, Colin Furze blew the mind of every Star Wars fanatic when he built an almost life-size AT-AT. This year, he pledged his total allegiance to the Dark Side by constructing a full-size replica of Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer. The fighter measures in at 46 feet long, 23 feet wide, and 14 feet tall and is made completely of steel. As if that isn't enough, he enlisted James Bruton to also make a fully-functioning BB-9E.
