From solid oak and Edelman shearling (alpaca bouclé yearling and dark blue and white bouclé), Pierre Yovanovitch’s whimsical Papa Bear Arm Chair is handmade in France by the artisans of Ateliers Jouffre. Yovanovitch looked to the Goldilocks and the Three Bears fairytale for inspiration, evidenced by the ear-like additions and cuddly, anthropomorphic aesthetic. It’s absurd, aspirational and all-around entertaining. Price is available upon request from the Invisible Collection.
In honor of the life’s work of Franco-Venezuelan artist and color theorist Carlos Cruz-Diez, Hublot’s limited edition Classic Fusion wristwatch interprets his 1964 masterpiece “Chronointerference.” The MHUB1100.H movement not only powers the self-winding timepiece, but also two colorful, patterned discs that compose the dial. Corresponding with the passage of time, the patterns shift in an exquisite display of kinetic color art. There are variations in millimeter size (45 and 38) and case material—but our selection is the rarest in satin-finished 18k King Gold. These collaborative pieces are only available in Hublot boutiques.
Referencing the classic 1970s Leica R3 in its design, the German camera-maker’s SL2 is a full-frame mirrorless camera that’s undeniably versatile.

With a 47.3-megapixel sensor and a Maestro III processor, this camera really delivers and begs to be taken out on all your adventures.
Made in the USA, KILLSPENCER’s ultra-luxe tennis bag has room for a racket and—in the detachable pouch—three cans of balls. The exterior is made from a soft, quilted full-grain leather, while the interior is foam-lined to protect your racket. The straps are also padded to ensure comfort while commuting. The quilted leather is akin to a luxury handbag, and the overall look is opulently high-end.
Designed by Georg Foster for iconic specialized Swiss clockmaker L’Epée 1839, the Time Fast D8 mechanical clock draws inspiration from vintage racecars. This limited edition creation, available in five colors, features an in-house caliber with a 192-hour power reserve (eight days). The numerous design and technical details truly impress—from the glass-domed escapement to ’50s open-worked radiator grill. As the brand describes it, the Time Fast D8 is as much a kinetic sculpture as it is a clock.
Traeger Grills (which technically aren’t grills at all) work similarly to convection ovens, but this one is electric-powered and incredibly accurate. In fact, it’s accurate to the point that you’re able to step away, connect via iOS and step back outside when your meat (or vegetables or bread, or whatever) is done. With an easy-to-use panel and a smoky flavor that’s otherwise unmatched, the Timerbline 850 is the premier option for home cooks of all levels.
With design inspiration taken from the Royal Air Force’s 100 Squadron—the first UK military division formed for night bombing, back in 1917—Bremont’s U-2/51-JET features the brand’s trademarked “51” lume, heat treated steel blued hands and a hardened, stainless steel DLC Trip-Tick case. On there back there’s an exhibition caseback revealing the modified calibre 11 ½”’ BE-36AE automatic chronometer inside. It’s a striking new timepiece from the English brand and it happens to be durable, too.
Built in Detroit from a powder-coated, die-cast zinc casing and a stamped aluminum dial, this limited edition Runwell Wall Clock was conceived of by two CH favorites in the time-keeping design industry: George Bamford and Shinola. Bamford and Shinola’s team conceptualized the 14-inch product together—and Bamford’s signature light-blue pops against the clock’s dynamic gray-scale coloration. The clock can be hung or rested upon the included black-lacquered American oak stand.

Made in Japan, this WiFi-enabled speaker’s track collection will continue to grow.
A collaborative design between powerhouse musician St Vincent and the engineering team of Ernie Ball Music Man, this electric guitar looks and sounds like no other. From the hand-rubbed rosewood neck and fingerboard to St Vincent inlays, Schaller locking tuners and a five-way pick-up selector, the custom configurations make it quite the sonic force. When the guitar first launched it was available in black or custom Vincent Blue, a color hand-mixed by Annie Clark, but it has now expanded to Polaris White, Heritage Red, Tobacco Burst, and Stealth Black as well.
The beloved Leica CL has been a favorite among photographers for a long time. Now, the classic has been reinvented as a digital camera. With a Sony 24MP sensor, eye-level EVF, and interchangeable lenses, the camera still remains almost the same size as the original. WiFi-enabled, it’s an incredibly responsive camera that will impress users with the quality of images it produces.
Ranch Boss can burn whole logs, seat large numbers of people, and feed throngs. Its size gives tremendous versatility for many kinds of cooking, from rotisserie to Dutch oven, and from grilling to the serving as the world’s most impressive soup pot. While it is often the central point of resort and lodge settings it is often found on home patios as a statement of quality and the center of outdoor family life.With a 6’4″ tripod height, a vast basin and even larger diameter, Cowboy Cauldron’s Ranch Boss can hold a number of full logs and create a perimeter large enough for a whole family to sit around and enjoy. This is an outdoor tool for grilling on, cooking in or simply for taking in warmth while outside. Each cauldron has been crafted from solid, seamless, high-tensile plate steel—and while that alludes to its functionality and durability, it’s also a beast of simple beauty.
Since their launch in 2010, Ressence—designer Benoît Mintiens’s groundbreaking watch brand—has continued to release pieces that defy the ordinary, employing a unique disc-based mechanical system and a minimal, geometric aesthetic to match. In 2015, men’s style destination Mr Porter began to stock the brand and now the two have united for a limited edition collaborative collection, in two styles. Our personal favorite, the Type 1 MRP in grade-five titanium features a night-blue metallic dial. A 42mm case holds the brand’s proprietary ROCS 1 module, which powers the timepiece. Only 12 of these watches will be produced.
Beyond its uncommon shape (a signature of the Fiona Krüger brand), the Vanitas wall clock truly impresses with its vivid interior color profile. The result of a collaboration between namesake watchmaker Fiona Krüger and historic manufacturer L’Epée 1839, the Vanitas is an engineering feat with a movement that matches the case (with an escapement appearing as the third eye). As time passes—with the piece offering more than 35 days running time before needing to be wound—the mouth changes and the lips part. This iteration (there’s also an all-black version) is limited to 50 pieces.
