UTS Stealth PVD Diver

31 03 2008

UTS Watches of Munich, like most small watch manufacturers, has a controlled yearly output – in the ballpark of 200 or less. The simple reason is because only one man assembles and tests UTS watches. His name is Nicolaus Spinner. Mr Spinner does it all – from designing, to engineering, to assembly. Clearly when you buy a UTS timepiece you are taking comfort in knowing that Mr. Spinner built the machine.

Their latest offering, the UTS Stealth PVD Diver, is bomb like. The features are simple and striking. The engine, an automatic ETA caliber 2824-2 movement, is housed in black PVD coated case stainless steel that is fabricated from a solid block of stainless steel. The UT Stealth PVD Diver is as simple as that.

Gordan Rush

30 03 2008

Gordon Rush has been around since 1998, but it’s only recently that his work has caught our eye. For instance, this belt that blends subtle texture and stitching with ostentatiously visible thread for a look that’s both formal and irreverent. Rush is all about multiculturalism, and he throws in a few self-consciously Asian touches in his line—like Kanji on the soles of shoes, which should lead to interesting footprints—but his heart is with craftsmanship.

Yes that picture includes A-Ron if you are unaware of who he is or what he is not doing with aNYthing let me educate you.  A-Ron was the founder and “wheels” behind the New York based brand aNYthing (thats such a cool name) after a arguement between the team he split, slapped a lawsuit on aNYthing and now he is at it again.  This new project is known as Off Bowery and has a nice selection of hats, tees, and long sleeve shirts.  The designs aren’t “wow” good, but a very good look for A-Ron the “Downtown Don.”

! E S T E L L E !

26 03 2008

Estelle.

There’s a new singer in town that I’m really excited about: Estelle.
Although she brings something around the lines of R&B singers like Lauryn Hill, This amazing girl’s sound stands way out as something entirely unique!

Her first Album, The 18th Day, was a hit in the UK (United Kingdom). Now a days, she has all kinds of different talent collaborating with her on her new album, Shine. These people include Wyclef Jean, Will.i.am, Swizz Beats, Mark Ronson, John Legend, and of course.. Kanye West. I think this is a pretty great amount of talented people if you’re really looking for a lot of fans in the U.S and Canada.

Just recently, her new songs “American Boy,” and “Wait a Minute (Just a Touch)” are really great, and are two of my favourites! Her new album was supposed to be released in Feb, unfortunately that didn’t happen as planned. My hopes are really high for this girl. She’s super awsome and super talented. =)

Best of Luck Estelle!

M.
