URWERK has just released their newest creation, the URWERK UR-210Y Black Hawk ($TBA). The Black Hawk tells time through its satellite complication display with wandering hour and retrograde minute indicators. It also has a winding efficiency indicator which basically tells you if you're moving around enough to power the watch or if it's running on stored energy. The body of the Black Hawk is made from high-tech titanium and AITiN-treated steel, measures 43.8 x 53.6 x 17.8mm, is capped off with a sapphire crystal, and has a black fabric strap. Water-resistance is rated to 3 ATMs. If you want one get your order in fast because only 75 pieces will be made.
Looking to dapper your style a bit? Well the Highland Harris Tweed Large Rucksack ($300) will get you going in the right direction. The bag measures 17 x 12 x 5 inches and features a 100% wool green checked harris tweed outer trimmed with tan vintage leather, a 100% cotton lining, antique brass finish zip, solid brass hardware and adjustable webbing straps. The main compartment has a drawstring closure and includes an internal zip pocket.
A while back we did a write-up on iPhone SkateBacks made by Grove. Grove is a Portland Oregon company that takes the waste material from making skateboards and transforms it into beautiful accessories for apple products. They have now created the iPhone 5 Grove Skate Case ($149). Made from the same waste material no two cases are the same and you get full protection for your iPhone and not just the back. And you not only get a great looking case, but you also have a positive impact on the environment.
Adidas is about to release the Adidas Ultra Boost ($180) and they're calling it their best running shoe ever. The upper is made from their Primekknit fabric which creates an all encompassing sock like fit that allows for the natural expansion of your foot creating the most comfortable stride possible. The sole is made from a combination of their boost foam midsole which provides consistent performance in any condition and their Stretch Web outsole specifically made to harness energy. Additional features includes a heel counter for additional support and a Torsion System which creates independent movement between the heel and forefoot. The Adidas Ultra Boost is expected to go on sell some time in the next month, so sign-up on the Adidas site to be notified when they drop.
If you're looking for a classic Pea Coat this winter, step it up a notch and check out the Nigel Cabourn Mainline Japan Pea Coat ($1760). This design is based on the classic vintage Pea Coat, but has been updated with additional details like big bellow pockets and painted metal buttons. The fabric is made in Japan using a mixture of British wool and two colors of Kemp which keeps the two ply yarn from piling. This would make a great every day coat.
If you're dedicated to non-violence what do you do when someone pisses you off. Of course, you write it down in your People I Want To Punch In The Face Notebook ($14). In all seriousness, Whitney has created a beautiful notebook for any EDC arsenal. This little black book measures 5x35 inches and can easily fit in a pocket. It's handmade and features a soft buckram cover, hot stamped with gold lettering, and 20 plus pages of good quality unlined cream colored paper sewn in. Would also make a great gift.via: cool material
