    Timex X Nigel Cabourn Referee Watch Review

    In late June, while wasting my life scrolling on Instagram, I scrolled passed a new Timex watch on END Clothing’s account.  It was hot out, there was another watch flying by in my feed.  I quickly turned my attention towards whatever was next.  The only thing really operating was the reptile brain at this particular moment. So I flicked by the Timex and about 10-15 posts later, I was like, wait a second.  The dial on that watch was interesting.  What was that again?  Scroll back, keep going, back, back, back.  There it is: END’s post with the watch.  Usually they post exotic Nikes, Stone Island Shirts, and other Hypebeast wares.…

    Of Course We Need a Vantablack® Car

    German automaker BMW painted one of their new X6s in Vantablack®.  You know… that paint artist Anish Kapoor controls the usage of. BOO. To be more clear, he had to give his blessing of the project.  Wrap your head around that, someone controls the usage of a color.   Anyhow, this paint absorbs 99.965 per cent of light hitting it.  Composed of nanotubes that just suck up light, this paint is much cooler than a matte black wrap.  It also probably makes the car undefinable on the road and therefore confusing and dangerous.  I’m sure it’ll never be part of a wide-spread release strategy, but it’s a very cool project nonetheless.…

    Rally Rd. displays rare Diablo in NYC

    Rally Rd., a company that allows you to invest in valuable, rare automobiles had a party over the weekend showing off their newest offering, a Lamborghini Diablo SE30 Jota. Seeing these cars in the wild is rare enough so to get to experience one up close where you can really admire it is a treat. With each new car that rolls into their storefront in Soho, Rally Rd. redo their interior design. This time it was all purple everything with roses decorating the walls and a few hundred dollar bills woven in. There was a claw game, a vintage video game cabinet, and some sort of video machine you can…

    Philipp Plein Ferrari

    A while back I posted this exact Ferrari Testarossa on my instagram account. At the time the store was under construction and I wasn’t able to go in to get a closer look at the white 80s supercar. I was wondering by the same corner today and looked in to see the car still in the store. It was! This time it had a leopard print wrap on it. I went inside to check it out further. The guy working in the Philipp Plein store said he didn’t mind if I just took a couple pictures. I asked about the car. It doesn’t have the engine, due to city regulations,…

    Aston Martin announced a nod to the 50th Anniversary of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. This is the sixth James Bond film released in 1969. Same color, same maker, much higher performance. The same color, Olive Green will be used on all 50 of the edition. Also, this car might win for the best rims of the last 30 years. Pricing is around £300,007.00, shipping this fall. See Aston’s Press clipping here. The Fake Alligator Hot Take Look, folks. I love Aston Martin. Their restrained styling and unrestrained driving experience are amazing. The so bad it’s good color works. I don’t remember it being that color in the film, but…

    Jeff Koons’ “Rabbit” sells for $91 million

    The sale of Jeff Koons’ Rabbit at Christies in New York on Wednesday May 15 made him the highest prices living artist, taking over that mantle from David Hockney(previously written about here) who held the record for about 6 months. Blowing well past the estimate of $50,000,000 – $70,000,000, the final price including buyer’s premium was $91,075,000. Not exactly chump change. Christies produced this beautiful video about the install of the piece. This Rabbit is from an edition of three. One of which is owned by Stefan Edlis and featured prominently in HBO’s art-market documentary The Price of Everything. Even if you hate Jeff Koons, this doc is amazing.

    Kobe Bryant Black Mamba Basketball

    Kobe Bryant left his mark on the NBA: Scored 33,643 points Averaged 25 points per game Made 11,719 field goals Played 20 years Had 32 nicknames, the best of which was Black Mamba. Last month Spalding threw a pretty interesting item on their site: a basketball wrapped in black Mamba skin. Featuring Kobe Bryant’s signature in gold and a fancy black presentation box, official height and weight and rated for indoor use only, this ball would certainly be a show stopper. Has a ball ever been a show-stopper? So this ball has a surface modeled after a black mamba snake. No word on whether or not the surface has a…
