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

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
