Beetle Bailey and Popeye on a black PVD Bamford Rolex? Wild. I told George if he did Mickey hands he would have me.

In his own words:
“I designed and created the Fake Rolex as a homage to the ultimate watch of status, The Rolex Submariner. Made in a limited edition, from the highest grade silicone available, this fashionable item is now available for all to enjoy and appreciate.”
The Fake Rolex is available for $40 in Black and White, limited to 150 pieces.
Supporting my friends at IWC around the opening of their flagship NYC store, they filmed a series of short videos– small snippets on a fewindividuals who call NYC home. Naturally for my video, I grew out a beard and then went in for an old fashioned New York hot shave for the Globetrotter video, as well as stopping by some of my favorite NYC establishments. Check it out, I think it turned out nice!
KAWS personally designed the dial of this special Horizon, and nobody plays the line between art and time better than Ikepod, so it is a perfect collaboration for both parties. This is the type of watch that could be massively collectible down the line.
$14,000 and available at Westime in Los Angeles.
If I had to pick a favorite– it would be the Ceramic Big Pilot’s Watch with Perpetual Calendar shown above. Stunning in person, I promise.
Big Pilot in Ceramic and Titanium. A nice twist on the classic model.
Big Pilot Worldtimer, I should probably have one of these.
And of course, the new Miramar. I’ve seen a few different strap combinations and I’m partial to the brown leather, but the green canvas is still really solid.
P.S. The booth was incredible. Full flight simulator, aircraft carrier details down to the screws. Check out the behind the scenes footage of the making here.
The new Watch Sculptures are part of a larger series of miniature time-based sculptures by Wilcox that uses vintage mechanical timepieces and customized model figures.
Congrats to the team at Nooka for the newly launched website. Looking very good! Check it out…
Gorgeous watch by one of my favorite designers for one of my favorite Japanese brands. Via Daily Icon
