watch-roundup

Black on white may be fun every once in a while, but in the age of the Internet it’s as appealing as paying for porn – and this applies to watches too. Black on black is back in force and we’re all winners.

Sure, these watches from Nooka, Welder, TX , and Issey Miyake may not be the easiest to read but they make a statement – my watch looks so damn good I don’t care if I can’t read it sometimes. Your Casio may be easy to read – and a whole lot cheaper – but it’s 2010 and these watches are the change you need.

The Watches (clockwise from top-left):

TX T3C423 Pilot Fly-Back Chrono – $565

Nooka ZIRC Black – $328

Issey Miyake TO Black – $379

Welder 3104 K24 Carbon Fiber Automatic – $1,125

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
