The Hades electric motorcycle kind of defies description with echoes of steampunk, executive den, silver bullet, and rotary phone dial all mashed into one seriously cool moto. The Hades was designed by J.T. Nesbitt of Confederate Motorcycles fame, and this might be his most glorious creation. Even though it’s described as minimalist, the fork and swingarm are dark but complex carbon fiber and almost flying buttress-type structures, while the body arcs over the huge cylinder battery case that houses a 16.8kWh unit with 217 horsepower and 147 foot-pounds of face-ripping torque. Unique design cues include brake lights mounted into the bottom of the seat and leather pads on the body for softer contact points. The most shocking part, aside from its pure electric power, is the fact that the singular bike will go on sale next year for a not insignificant $75K.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
