There are car mods, and then there are car tank mods. This one is the latter. Russian YouTube channel AcademeG‘s team decided to take a luxurious Bentley Continental GT and slap some monster tank tracks on it. They bought a “bargain” used Continental GT, removed the engine (waah!) and had it repalced with a Toyota V8 and then proceeded to cut the hell out of the body, remove the doors, and even zip-tie the bumper back on. Then a full set of all-terrain tank tracks with a custom-built frame and track were installed for off-road capability. After a long nine months of modifications, the Ultratank was sent out to rural parts of Russia for test runs that are fascinating to watch, albeit imperfect in execution. The mere fact that this thing even exists just goes to show dudes will do just about anything to reach new levels of entertainment and DIY.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
