Why All the Hyper-SUVs?

Don’t get me wrong, when it comes to cars, I’m all about performance.  Not just speed, but proper performance for the type of car.  I want my trucks to haul and tow.  I want my SUVs to plow through the snow.  I want my super cars to corner, accelerate, brake.  A car needs a proper balance of traits to suit its tasks, especially a daily driver.  A strait line quarter-mile muscle car or an all-out bad-ass off-roader are a...

When It Comes to Watches, Older Is Often Better

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I’m a bit of a watch nut.  I love following the brands.  I love seeing what comes out of SIHH and Baselworld ever year.  And, I love planning my dream collection.   There are a lot of great innovations in materials, complications and technologies out there.  There are some new watches that a most definitely drool-worthy (HYT H1, anything from MB&F, the Audemars Piguet Millenary 4101...

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...
