TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 “SpaceX” Watch
Omega and NASA have always had a long lasting relationship and now another luxury watch manufacturer is getting in the space game. This TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 features the SpaceX logo and both the Falcon 9 launch rocket and Dragon spacecraft - two of their most notable projects.
For those unaware of what SpaceX is, it’s a space transportation company founded by Elon Musk - the genius behind PayPal and Tesla Motors. The guy is basically a real life Tony Stark. Don’t be surprised if he starts fighting off super villains in near future.
I don’t commonly like chronograph-style watches because they violate every principle of simplicity ever uttered. This watch, however, peaks in epic territory on multiple levels. It’s an incredible stylish, understated chronograph that isn’t brazen with its window dressing. It commemorates one of the more important initiatives in modern space travel as well.
I bought some Happy Socks recently. Socks are a great way to add some color to your kit without dressing like Steven Tyler. A lot of the time, I’ll choose socks to match whatever I’ve got going on north of the belt. Happy Socks have loads of different patterns, from the rather modest stripes I’ve got going on here to absolutely bonkers patterns that cause seizures. They’re comfortable socks and you can score two pairs for the price of one pair by Cole Haun.
