What do you have going on in your basement? Some mold growing? A random collection of crumpled red Solo cups accruing in the corner? Whatever it is, it’s not as crazy as this. Ken Imhoff, a sports car nut with a bit of time on his hands, spent 17 years building a Lamborghini Countach from scratch in his basement. Back in 2008 he finally finished constructing the ride. Afterwards, Ken simply excavated to get his new wheels outside. You know, just dig a hole through your basement wall after you’ve removed the ground in front of it. No comment from his wife.

Bull in the Basement

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
