IWC’s New Manhattan Flagship Boutique

IWC New York Boutique on 54th Street & Madison Avenue Two words: flight simulator.  Yes, flight simulator.  But, more on that later.  Last week IWC opened their long awaited New York flagship boutique on 54th and Madison.  I had the chance today to stop in and see if it was worth the wait.  It was.   Now, it seems as though every watch brand has a new or relatively new independent boutique.  57th Street alone has the Breitling,...

Review of Revolucion Tequila Reposado

Revolucion Tequila Reposado I like tequila.  Good tequila.  I have for some time.  I’m not, however, a fan of the whole shots with lime and salt licking thing.  That’s one reason I like this tequila.  You don’t need to drink it in shot form with enough chasers to drown a horse.  Jose Cuervo, I’m looking in your direction. Revolucion Tequila is a relative newcomer to the world of premium tequilas.  Juan Carlos...

Richard Hammond Goes Ham-Wild in a Tank…How Do I Get His Job???

Richard Hammond of BBC’s Top Gear fame has crossed the pond.  And, if his new show on BBC America, Richard Hammond’s Crash Course, is any indication, he made the crossing on a USMC hovercraft. As if being the host on the world’s most popular car show and getting to drive the greatest cars in the world or drag race a Bugatti Veyron against a Euro Fighter Jet isn’t enough, he has to come to the US and play with...

Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4: A Road Test Review

Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 Once seated in the carbon fiber and alcantra pod Lamborghini has molded as the cockpit for their super-car, the Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4, you can instantly tell this is not your ordinary Gallardo.  It’s not even your ordinary fighter jet.  This $237,600, 570 Horse, 202 mph modernist sculpture is perhaps one of the greatest cars ever created. As Lamborghini’s answer to the...

HYT H1 Watch

Ok, now this is new.  So new, HYT has filed seven patents for this watch alone.  The HYT H1 is a revolutionary new watch from the Hydro Mechanical Horologist at HYT led by former Concord CEO Vincent Perriard.  The H1 uses a “fluorescein” liquid-filled tube to indicate the hours.  It reminds me a bit of an old bubble level filled with neon green goop.  Two bellows, controlled and regulated by the mechanical movement, push and pull the...

2012 New York Auto Show

This week is the 2012 New York Auto Show.  Not normally a car town, the NY Auto Show generally leaves a lot to be desired, especially in the drooling gotta have it super car category.  This year, they seemed to have upped their game.  In addition to the launch of the 2013 Viper there were some definite kick-ass cars this years.  Here are some photos from the show.  Pay special attention to my babies, the 2013 60th Anniversary Corvette...

2013 SRT Viper

At the 2012 New York Auto Show, Dodge, and its kick-ass in-house tuning arm SRT, decided to unveil the new 2013 SRT Viper.  After taking a few years off, the Viper is back and more bad-ass than ever.  The new Viper has an updated design that still harkens back to the original back in the early nineties.  The new carbon fiber roof, hood and decklid and aluminum doors make the car very light.  This allows the 640 horse, 600 ft-lb of...
