This is the most complex timepiece Swiss watchmaker IWC has ever made. It features simultaneous solar time, Sidérale time, and has a perpetual calendar on the back. The rest of the watch’s exhaustive list of premium features is so embarrassingly complex that the only other comment we can make with authority is the fact that it looks cool, too.
If your manhood doesn’t really need an extension, the main purpose of a car is to get you from point A to point B. The 2012 Toyota Yaris will do that and then some. It’s got a burrito-sized glove box, windows that go up & down, and a honkable horn. It also gets nearly 40mpg. Your neighbor who drives the luxury combat vehicle won’t understand but Toyota does. This post has been sponsored by Toyota.
Can anyone explain the link between the combat video game series Call Of Duty and the Jeep Wrangler? Didn’t think so but regardless, Jeep is launching another beefed-up special edition for the release of Activision’s latest Call Of Duty: MW3. Not sure hardcore gamers will fully appreciate the 32-inch mud tires and burly bumper upgrades but they look good to us.
Based on an original movie prop used in Back to the Future Part II, a modern recreation of Marty McFly’s famous shoe is now on the auction block. Over the course of 10 days, 1500 pairs will be made available. All net proceeds go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
The Ducati Diavel is a stand-alone masterpiece from Italy’s most progressive moto maker. Ducati certainly doesn’t need to team up with Mercedes-Benz customizers AMG to make this bike better but they did. AMG’s upgraded wheels, Alcantara exhaust and a few other cosmetics complete the package making an already silly-sick bike even gnarlier.
Before you take your Motocrossboard into the woods for some high-speed tree slalom, you might want to switch your HMO to a PPO. Sure, the deductible is higher but the catastrophic coverage is much better. We’re not saying you’re guaranteed to wreck yourself but standing atop a 50CC motor while weaving through the woods is asking for it. Begging actually.
Pointy helmets and superiority complexes, yes, but humor is not something we normally associate with carbon fiber bikes. That’s why the ironically named Foundry Bikes, who build only with carbon-fiber, is kinda funny. Their custom framesets are about to hit stores and unlike their splashy-graphic, blinged-out competitors, Foundry frames look seriously cool. What’s better than black? Shipping in early 2012.
Texas motorcycle-maker Jason Wonder’s Wonder Bikes are simple, elegant machines; modern classics that pack today’s technology into old school finery. The Bobber’s hardtail frame, sprung girder front end, and stripped down look are powered by the reliability of a new H-D Sportster motor. In other words, it is roadtrip ready.
Aside from maybe spotting a rare Kirtland’s Warbler or an Ash-Throated Flycatcher, what do birdwatchers have to be excited about? Never thought about that before, have you? Well, now there’s Sony’s new digital binoculars that capture 3-D full-HD video and big, bold still images. They also feature built-in GPS for geotagging your rare bird images or whatever you might shoot.
If your Batmobile is an old Lincoln Futura with a body kit, you’re just another number. Those things are a dime a dozen. But a jet-turbine powered Batmobile? There’s only one in existence, so even at $620K, it’s a deal. Just be careful backing it into the Batcave.
