$17,000 is a lot of money to spend on a watch that doesn’t bear one of the more iconic names in the industry. But, and bear with us here, what if the watch didn’t need to have a name at all because it was special enough without it? We’re just going to cut to the chase. Kobold is a watch company you’ve probably never heard of before right now, but one that just did something pretty remarkable. This watch is called the Everest Edition for good reason–the face is made of an actual piece of rock collected from the summit of Mount Everest. At this point, the movement (Swiss automatic-winding), case metal (stainless) and band (supple leather) are pretty much irrelevant in the face of a piece of Everest rock. And yeah, it’s pricey, but that mountain doesn’t climb itself.

For those who find attention-grabbing brogues and ornate details a bit too flashy but who still want a pair of attractive, well-made dress shoes, The Martin Wholecut is the answer. Handmade in Italy out of a single piece of Italian calfskin leather, the rich, supple dress shoes feel exceedingly comfortable and look sleek without being over the top. Each is outfitted with a leather lining, a matching leather sole, and is even painted by hand. Plus, thanks to the Blake construction, The Martin Wholecut Oxfords feel light and flexible.
