As supercars go, the current crop of them is mindblowing in terms of technology and speed. Hybrid power, carbon fiber tubs, launch control, all more than we can wrap our brains around. But the BMW M1 is almost the anti-supercar by comparison. Nearly three decades old, the M1 was powered by a 3.5-liter mid-mounted inline-six engine with 266 horsepower. Back then, the thing was a rocket, hurtling to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. Its slick fiberglass body was designed by the legendary Giorgetto Giugiaro and commissioned by Lamborghini. Lambo ran out of money to build the M1, so BMW took it into their own hands by outsourcing the bodywork and installing the engine and transmission, and handling the testing themselves. Sadly, only 399 of these current legends were built for roadgoing. This particular M1 (265/399)  is about as perfect as it gets with a full engine restoration and thorough refurbishing to put it in showroom condition. The work to put it in its current state amounts to $100K, and it appears to have been worth every penny.

Timex-MK1-Chronograph-Black-IF2

[Shop]  The original Timex Military Watch was designed based on two things: ruggedness and simplicity. Ruggedness to stand up to the demands of a soldier, and simplicity so the time could be grasped with a passing glance. That doesn’t mean such a watch couldn’t receive some updates, however. This is the MK1 Chronograph, a reimagining of the original military watch. Now packed with a chronograph, this Timex still allows for easy readability, only now you can use it as a stopwatch as well. Built with a robust aluminum case that’s strong yet light and a double-layer black slip-through band, the Timex MK1 Chronograph is as comfortable and stylish as it is dependable.
