Anmahian Winton Architects is a Cambridge-based architecture firm with work all over the world that focuses on collaboration, innovation and sustainable design. More importantly, as is evidenced by the Gemma Observatory, their works are beautiful, functional, interesting and award-winning. The Gemma Observatory by Anmahian Winton Architects is a private astronomical observatory built in the middle of a three-mile “dark” area (as in it has very little light pollution) on top of a remote mountain summit in central New Hampshire. The many faceted structure uses zinc cladding on the exterior and fir plywood on the interior to create a space that’s warm and inviting on the inside while still perfectly suited for studying the sky. When you’re not using the upstairs observation deck or the primary viewing platform in the turret, the first floor contains a research office, sleeping bunk and warming room accessible via helical stair case. This would be a fantastic hideaway or lair for any of you interested in the stars.

There are few watches with as storied a legacy as the G-SHOCK. Originally released in 1983, the Shock Resistant and 200M Water Resistant watch has remained relevant to this day. It just got even better with the release of the first full-metal addition to the continually evolving 2100 line. This model retains the original streamlined, minimalist design while being even more sleek, durable and feature-packed. With Tough Solar Power, Smartphone Link and Super Illuminator, it’s an analog watch built for the digital age. The G-SHOCK GBD2100 is available in silver, black IP and Bronze IP colorways, so there’s a stylish version for every occasion.
