Unhappy with the fact that the past two decades have seen the bicycle manufacturing industry disappear almost completely from Europe, twin brothers Bob and Tom Schiller set out to bring manufacturing back to The Netherlands with Mokumono Cycles. Taking pages out of the automotive manufacturing playbook, Mokumono developed an innovative, automated production process to create their unique frames, using two mirrored pieces of aluminum welded together by a robotic 3D laser. The frame is designed with floating rear stays and a carbon fiber front fork to ensure it’s strong and lightweight while still giving you a smooth ride. Rounding out the list of components is an impressive collection of names and parts you’re no doubt familiar with. Shimano 105 grade hydraulic flat mount disk brakes. Gates CDX Carbon Belt Drive System. Internal brake and gear cable routing. Brooks Cambium C15 saddle made from vulcanized natural rubber and an organic cotton top. IXOW Gravity Locks on the wheel axles and seat post. Shimano Alfine 8-speed or 11-speed hub. It truly is a commuter bike unlike any other.

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.
