Sometimes you just come across a really outrageous piece and you simply have to spotlight it. Surfaced by Tropical Watch, the shop — helmed by collector and curator Jacek Kozubek — has got its hands on a 1955 Rolex Big Crown Submariner. With a faded bezel, golden lume markings and well-loved 3, 6, 9 dial, this piece has a patina that only 66 years could provide. Maybe it’s that Bordeaux-colored bezel, but this reminds us that — like a fine wine — some watches really do get better with age. The only hiccup? If you want to fold this Rolex into your collection, expect to drop a cool $558,350. If you don’t happen to have a spare half million dollars lying around, don’t fear: Whether it’s a a whiskey finished in pinot noir casks or a 3D face mask designed to give you a bit more breathing room, there’s plenty of new gear to get excited about.

Loro Piana wool that can stand up to a storm? It doesn’t get better than that.
Loro Piana represents the epitome of quality when it comes to (Italian) wool. Canada’s Haven has teamed with Loro Piana, incorporating the latter’s Storm System Capolavoro wool and blending it with a three-layer water and windproof membrane. Pieces range from the hiking-style Solo Pants to the Chamber Parka — which, aside from being the centerpiece of the collection — sits right at the intersection of tailored luxury and modern techwear.
The Oregonian spirit that celebrates two of the region’s best drinks: whiskey and pinot noir.
Westward Whiskey’s focused on defining the concept of “American Single Malt,” using a uniquely Oregonian POV. In that spirit, Westward is celebrating another icon of Oregon — pinot noir — with its collab with Dobbes Family Winery. Finished in casks that once held Dobbes’ Rosé of Pinot Noir Dessert Wine, this spirit blends notes of plum candy with dark ripe fruit, soft pepper, herbaceous grain, caramel. The only downside? This is an exclusive to the Westward’s Whiskey Club.
Denon’s dive into wireless earbuds promises hi-fi audio (at a genuinely affordable price).
Wireless earbuds can feel like a dime a dozen these days, but Denon’s aiming to blend industry-standard features with a price that’s worth a second look. Ranged between $99 and $159, while the entry level model does sacrifice Active Noise Cancelling and a couple hours of battery life (18 hours vs. 24 hours), these stand to be a solid alternative to splurging on high priced options from other labels.
The face mask that’s designed to give you a bit more breathing room.
With face masks still a daily necessity, it’s worth spending the extra time (and frankly, money) to make sure you’re getting something that you’re comfortable wearing day in and day out. The Curv by Enro uses a 3D structure, providing extra room and more breathability — ensuring a comfortable fit whether you’re on a long flight or hitting the gym.
