Have You Ever Seen A Black Badger.


HMX_BB_Top_Night-trio_Hres_CMYK

The press release for the Black Badger says the watch features “three-dimensional objects” milled from “solid light.” The science geek in me recoils at such phrasing but nevertheless, I was curious and keen to learn what alchemical tricks James Thompson the watch’s creator had used to transform his rage into solid light. Check the method.

The HYT Skull Bad Boy.


HYT-SkullBadBoy-front

Death. Power. Celebration. The skull is associated with numerous themes, and HYT has used it to great effect in its namesake collection. The Skull watch was first released in two references with red and green liquids, each sporting matching eyes of the corresponding color and resembling a different comic book character. The Skull Maori came next, and had detailing that evoked traditional Maori tribal tattoos. For its latest creation, the Skull Bad Boy, HYT has ventured into the rebellious, grittier subcultures of biking and hard rock.  The most striking aspect of the new release is its fluid module’s black liquid, which had taken the brand over a year to develop.

It’s worth noting that every new color used in the brand’s fluid modules is an individual “product” whose hue is just one aspect that must be engineered – the liquid must also maintain a defined meniscus within the glass tube, repel itself from the tube’s inner walls instead of sticking to it, have a suitable viscosity and thermal coefficient, and finally be UV resistant.  Chemistry aside, black also represents an entirely new shade for the brand, whose past developments have been confined to bright, almost fluorescent liquids. The new liquid is a perfect fit for the Skull Bad Boy’s monochromic color scheme, which includes a black DLC-coated titanium case and slate grey leather strap. The watch’s overall look is sinister, and fully deserving of its name. The general lack of vibrancy doesn’t translate into a lack of details though. Note how the grey hour indexes on the flange support the theme with their Gothic typeface, and the dial’s Clous de Paris pattern that resembles a leather cuff’s studs.

The T-Block Watch.

T – Block re-defines time through an original quality timepiece and has a very futuristic look.  It boasts a robust design that’s unlike any other watch you’ve seen. Clear, LEDs are embedded in a tough polyurethane case and seamless matching strap. When the watch is in sleep mode, the LEDS are dim, but if you want to know the time or date, just hit one of the buttons and the  lights appear, revealing the time and day.

Marynn Illustration, (out of France) has created a stunning set of illustrations titled ‘Head Turner’.  The collection features some rather impressive hair designs elegantly illustrated in pencil. Check out some words from Marynn, and the rest of the photos afterwards.

When you cross a girl the street you ask yourself for one second if you should turn back to see her face again.  This was one second too late , she has passed and you only have her back , her perfume and a taste of regret.

She Has Waited Too Long.

While just randomly scouring the internet for anything interesting, Ever Magazine in France had an article titled “She Has Waited Too Long” that caught my eye.  Most photos that show off dresses, are merely some nicely made up woman, either cropped from the head up, or contorted into some oddly unusual but artsy position, but when I saw odel Clémentine Levy, something was obviously different.  Levy teamed up with make up artist MademoiselleMu for a unique and stylish take on the dress portrait.  The make up accentuates the look, and emphasizes the dresses, but is outside-of-the-box enough to catch anyone’s eye.  Check the method.
