Tudor Heritage Black Bay Dark

One of the highlights to come out of the recently completed Baselworld 2016 is the Tudor Heritage Black Bay Dark. The 41mm, COSC-certified timepiece features a stealthy, black PVD-treated coating. It's fitted with Tudor's in-house MT5602 movement, which offers a 70-hour power reserve. Waterproof to 200m, the Black Bay Dark is a tool watch that will stand up to whatever you throw at it--on land or sea. It's available on a black PVD bracelet ($4,475) or distressed leather band ($4,150), and both come with an additional grey fabric strap.

Belstaff | Spring 2016 | "Worship the Ground"

Belstaff, the British clothier, has teamed up with famed photographer Rankin on its Spring 2016 campaign. It features Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the legendary polar pioneer, and stuntman Riley Harper in a series of portraits exploring what the campaign's title, "Worship the Ground," means to them. Showcased prominently is one of Belstaff's most iconic designs, the Trialmaster boot, which was created in 1955. The images were shot from beneath a glass floor, allowing the models to walk and ride motorcycles and giving a new perspective on the boots through Rankin's lens.
