Japanese cult label A Bathing Ape presents the TYPE 1 BAPEX for 2013 fall/winter. Furthering its bold aesthetics over two colorways in blue and green, the TYPE 1 BAPEX features a stainless steel bracelet and buckle in contrast to its bright display panel. With subtle BAPE accents throughout and slogan “MADE BY HUMAN” stamped at the panel’s lower, the timepiece is another standout item from the imprint’s forthcoming collection
I am a massive fan of Project X and their custom Rolexs (even though they are waaaaay out of my price bracket), catching my eye at the moment is the Submariner Stealth series, a line of high-end timepieces that marry elegance and ruggedness in one. Designed by Strength & Guile, the watches supposedly borrow their inspiration from SBS commandos, the British Royal Navy’s special forces unit. No, the watches won’t descend upon hostile territory and begin shooting enemy units, but they look cool while pretending to do just that.
Two watches are currently available on the Submariner Stealth line: the MK III and the MK IV. Both come with blacked-out bezels, reed green G10 NATO straps secured by military fixed bars and “Stealth” inscriptions on the black dial, making for timepieces that are equal parts stylish and rugged (Rolex claims the construction can withstand the rigors of the most hostile environments!!). Only 28 examples each of the timepieces will be produced, priced at £8,750 and £9,950, respectively. Buy (I mean look) here
