Youtube:

 

Cost: $7,100

The Perrelet Turbine watch has 12 titanium blades that spin to mimic the motions of a jet turbine. It’s sexy and unique, without being obtrusive, it is absolutely one of the most eye catching watches one can own, and it is also the most affordable on this list. Coming in a few varieties, it will definitely appeal to a large audience of watch enthusiasts.

 

 

5. Bulgari Carillon Tourbillon DR3300

Cost: $100,000

This original Bulgari design is hand made with 327 precision parts. The tourbillon architecture holds time for 75 hours when fully wound and consists of rare sapphire crystals, and other noble metals such as platinum, rhodium, ruthenium and indium. Only 30 of these watches were made, making this watch as exclusive as they come.

 

 

4. HYT H1 Watch

Cost: $45,000

Half mechanical, half liquid, this new high-tech watch aims to redefine how time is presented.  The bold, futuristic design tells time by moving the green liquid up and down the circumference of the watch face. The watch comes in multiple versions including titanium and pink gold and can be yours for as little as $45,000.

 

 

3. Louis Vuitton Tambour Minute Repeater

Youtube:

 

Cost: $300,000

This sexy watch by Louis Vuitton will cost as much as a Condo, but really, who can put a price on perfection. This watch belongs to the acoustic, or chiming, class of watches, which many experts consider to be not only the most aesthetically pleasing type of complicated timepiece but also one of the rarest. The watch is designed for the busy traveler since it displays a local time, as well as a “home” time allowing for dual timezones.

 

 

2. TAG Heuer’s Mikrotimer Flying 1000

Youtube:

 

Cost: $88,000

Touted as the world’s fastest chronometer watch, the Mikrotimer is capable of tracking 1/1000th of a second which is stupidly fast. The watch was originally built as a prototype, but is now going to be a part of a limited edition collection of 10 pieces, with each piece costing more than a luxury vehicle. If you’re into luxury chronographs that spin faster than you can blink, this is the watch for you.

 

 

1. Harry Winston Opus Eleven

Youtube:

 

Cost: $230,000

This watch is like having your very own mechanical Transformer strapped to your wrist. The gears rotate, and the mechanisms move causing a dramatic morphing of the displayed time at the center. The ingenius mechanism gives the watch extreme character while providing a rare glimpse at the pinnacle of human craftsmanship. Never before have I seen a watch quite like this one.

Enter the great wave of excitement around Apple/Mac concept design. Daily, the inspiring team of coders and designers come up with some of the most innovative, jaw-dropping, and sometimes, ridiculous ideas for the next best thing in Apple’s future.

Here are a few concepts we found awesome and ridiculous

Awesome: LCD iView

Image:

The LCD iView is a Mac concept design. The iView is the first screen with two distinctive characteristics: a double panoramicscreen with a unique curvature accompanying the natural eye curvature and movement.

Ridiculous: MacPad

MacPad is another Mac concept design. Although the idea is equipped with a convenient sliding mechanism that can display and vanish the keyboard at your convenience, the look and feel of the device is completely contradictory to Mac’s widely popular, minimal physique.

Best: MacBook Duo

macbook duo, apple design concepts

A hybrid device that is a unique combination of Apple’s existing portable media device technology with an e-reader/netbook. The MacBook Duo would offer enough usability in each arena to make it a standalone solution for frequent travelers. Work, browse, read, write, share and play all on one device.

Daaaaang: Apple-inspired Superyacht

Venus is the result of what happens when the superyacht concept and a design guru collide. Venus officially launched on a Sunday in the Dutch port of Aalsmeer, just over a year after the Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, died.

You be the Judge:

Luxury, class, and style… it’s what defines the modern man. Here are some of the must-haves to create a stunning bachelor bad that will impress even the most stubborn of ladies.

Reference 52 Flat TV by Loewe

A TV is a staple in any modern home, and this flat screen TV by Loewe is an icon amongst televisions. It transcendes the simple screen in a box to create a clean and stunning display of art and perfection. Guys, if there’s only one TV you get, this one is it.

Couch Design by Emanuele Canova

This Italian design is as simple as it is beautiful. The curves match the feminine physique, while the angles represent a masculine style. A perfect combination for you and your girl.

Modern Mini Bar by SAOTA and Antoni Associates

A modern home needs a modern bar, and this concept bar by SOATA and Antoni Associates illustrates what a great bar should have. The slate table and wooden backdrop provide a unique combination of industrial and organic, making this bar an ideal candidate for your pad. Just remember, only top shelf drinks allowed.

Infinity Pool @ Sofitel So Bangkok

This infinity pool is a classic representation of what a pool should look like. The pools edge appears to drop off a ledge, allowing for a stylistic illusion of elegance and luxury. Gone are the days of round, underground backyard pools, and in comes the rooftop luxury infinity pools.

En Suite Sky Garage @ Hamilton Scotts, Singapore

This is a car garage elevator that goes up to your apartment. Yes, you heard that correctly… it is an elevator for your car, that brings your car to whatever floor you live on, and puts it on display. Awesome? Yah, I think so… just make sure you have a nice enough car to match.

Rain Shower By Edmonds & Lee

This is a Rain Shower room that has perfect visibility from the bedroom. Yes, this is what a man needs, and the reasons are pretty self explanatory. The shower and the bedroom provide modern design and sensual comfort all in one.

Aluna Floating Bed

The bedroom is a man’s sanctuary, and the perfect bachelor pad needs a perfect bed to match. Good thing we have the Aluna Floating bed… a bed that is simple, yet elegant and is sure to impress any company that has the luxury to venture this far in. You’ll love the bed, and she’ll love you more for owning it. Guaranteed.

Ben Affleck’s new flick Argo makes reference to the wife of a Persian Ayatollah who was rumored to bathe in milk and sleep in jewels. While her bathing habits were excessive and greedy, I can’t help but feel envious. I pay a hefty lump sum for rent (no, I’m not giving you an exact number!) and have approximately 4 minutes of hot water, never mind an entire tank to support my habit. And so, in the spirit of unrequited day dreaming and a dope collection of pictures, I’d like to take you on a little joy ride that I like to call Naked Design–5 amazing high concept, high design bathtubs that even an Ayatollah could get down with. Grab your robe and a loofah because this train is leaving.

1. The Organic Cocoon

This secret bathtub sits under the natural illumination of a skylight and features a blue/ green mosaic, natural jet stream, and rock pool inspired-design. A nearby wooden seat makes for post-bath grooming or seating for a special invited guest. This pool is secluded and sensuous for hours of alone time. Danielle Steel, anyone?

2. Maison Alexandre de Betak

This gorgeous stone tub is in a French family’s maison; it was constructed by local artisans out of salt stone and assembled in the bathroom before there were walls. This home is staggering in its innovative detail and this mondo tub is the capstone. Check out the rest on Architectural Digest‘s website (http://www.admagazine.fr/decoration/articles/une-maison-d-ete-a-majorque/13774).

3. Thomas Linssen

Thomas Linssen’s high concept design was born out of an ergonomic wooden chair that he re-constructed. He was concerned with making a ceramic tub that molded to the body and considered its total comfort above all else. The frame is laminated from strips of white oak and bent over a mould. The tub itself is a marble, polyester composite. I feel like I could take a nap in here..too much?

4. Patch House 2

This stunning, minimalist bathtub sits in Mayfair, London at architect Gavin Jackson’s Patch House 2. The home is a homage to sleek minimalist design and the bathtub’s open air/noir silhouette makes it a design-lover’s dream. With this small bathing pool, you’re as contemporary as can be.

5. Freestanding Stone Tub

Freestanding tubs are all the rage and this stone piece is a keeper (note the deep recess and natural silhouette). This tub is made of thick, lightly polished stone with natural curves to lean up against. If your hot water tank has no bottom and you’ve got hours to spare, curl up in this organic bath with some bubbles and a bottle of wine.

We’ve come to the end of my squeaky clean list but stay tuned for other design delights from ToMo’s official blog. There’s no telling when another writer will get down, dirty, and even naked with their decor tips. See you next time!

5. The Ultimate Action Cam

The E-Clips video camera is ready when you are. Use it hand held, or attach it to your vehicle of choice. It comes with a digital wristband so you can control the action no matter where you are or what you’re doing. Cool? Yah, I think so. Lean more

 

4. Is this Bike For Real?

The Cannondale CERV bike is half bike, half mind blowing awesomeness. It has no chains, and instead, uses piston technology to bring power to the wheels. This is a head turner for sure. Check it out here.

 

3. The Street Machine

This street bike by Slugger01, is machine meets beauty. The iconic frame brings focus to the workings of the bike and gives it a distinctive flare. Check out more images of this stunner here.

 

2. Formula 1 on Water

I’m pretty sure someone just made a spaceship that floats on water. The Wesp Jetski is an exotic machine that looks like it’s constantly moving. Want more pictures? Click Here.

 

1. The Mercedes-Benz SF1 Concept

This is without a doubt the sexiest Mercedes I’ve ever seen. The lines are aggressive, the angles are sharp. I feel all tingly inside just looking at it. There’s a whole gallery of pics here.
