Did you know that there was an actual Heuer family behind the TAG Heuer watch brand? It’s true, Edouard Heuer began this luxury legacy way back in 1860. One hundred and four years later, in 1964, a young Jack Heuer designed and introduced the Carrera chronograph. To honor Jack’s 80th birthday this year, the brand is releasing a limited edition Carrera model featuring a 41mm case and Jack’s signature engraved in the caseback.
Anyone can walk into a pet store and come out with an aquarium filled with freaky fishes, but are you just “anyone”? Obviously not. For you, something exotic, like a jellyfish tank seems more apropos. And you can’t just walk out of the store with it. You order the tank and set it up, then return to the brand’s website with your jellyfish voucher and they send you one large and two small Moon Jellyfish via overnight express. Who else has one of these?
In the minds of high performance auto enthusiasts, open roof cars are just plain corny unless of course you’re talking about F1. But Lamborghini doesn’t care about them, the guys who buy Lambos are in it for the chicks. Hollywood lawyers, Hip Hop moguls, Russian politicians; those guys. They’ll love the new Aventador J, an aggressively angular 700-horse open roof coupe that goes nearly 200-mph.

This lamp is the bomb. Sorry, had to say it. Does anyone still use that phrase? The Blitz Bomb lamp is made from a WWII-era surplus MK23 bombshell.

A little discretion goes a long way for the drinking man. Take this Amish style end table for example. What mother-in-law would guess that beneath its smooth wooden exterior is a beer fridge big enough to get you and a couple of your buds through a bowl game? No need to get up and go to the fridge during sudden death overtime, just open the Mantable. Comes in the three finishes: tobacco, espresso, and black to blend with any décor.
