As you may have noticed from previous timepiece postings on my IWC and desired Ulysse Nardin watches, I am quite the affectionado for these man-sessories. That being said, the timepiece strap can really make or break the whole look, much like the right wheels on a car or the frame on a painting- it just brings it all together. I have searched and found the most amazing custom hand-made leather watch bands worthy to be paired with such high-caliber watches. Attila Aszodi crafts these bands from Shell Cordovan leather for their softness and durability. The unique 2 piece leather designs are strong and sporty, with a touch of class. Available in limited quantities, the varying colors and widths make it

Say hello to my new little friend – the IWC Classic Pilots Chronograph (original 3706 ‘Flieger’). I am a huge fan of timepieces.

Cell phone chargers begone! Exiled by the might of kinetic energy and a big pocketbook. Renowned watchmaker Ulysse Nardin drifted off the reservation a bit (kind of like Porsche Designers do ALL THE TIME) and came up with a great idea for a cell-phone. Great for those who like to keep their phone in their pocket and do a lot of walking, the Ulysse Nardin Chairman cell phone charges itself much like your Ulysse Nardin watch, by movement. I hate to say that this is cool because unlike a Ulysse Nardin watch, this will quickly become obsolete with advancing cell phone technology- but for right now, it is pretty darn cool. Here is why it will soon become a relic:
