Are These the Greatest iPad Covers in the World? Probably

If your apartment was on fire and you only had time to grab one or two of your belongings we’re pretty certain your iPad would be right up there with your cellphone and your pet cat. If you’re like us, you carry your trusty tablet everywhere you go, from your daily commute to the bathroom (cough.)

To make sure you keep yours safe and stylish when you’re on the road, we’ve lovingly compiled a list of our top five cases on the market right now.

1. Woolrich x Refleece iPad Sleeve

With fall on the horizon, we can’t think of a better way to keep your iPad cozy than with this toasty Woolrich x Refleece plaid sleeve. The collaborative collection fuses Refleece’s functional case design with wool from America’s oldest woolen mill in operation. The result is totally timeless.

2. Lifeproof Nüüd

Guaranteed to protect your iPad against all possible iPad calamities, the Lifeproof Nüüd is waterproof, dirt proof, snow proof and shock proof. We recommend this one for on location photographers and those that have been known to drop their iPhone down the toilet on more than one occasion.

3. Miniot Cover Mk2

We can’t get enough of this Dutch design. Carved from magnetic wood, the Miniot Cover Mk2 fuses technology with a touch of soul-soothing nature. The wood is sourced from sustainable forests in the Netherlands and is lined with an Ultrasuede microfiber lining to protect your screen from scratches.

4. New Classic Luxury iPad Case by Comme des Garçons

For the guy that likes all of his accessories to be matching, preferably in black leather, this Comme case makes for a beautifully crafted addition. We love the chunky gold zipper and case actually doubles up as a document portfolio. Super smart.

5. Flying Tiger iPad Case by Kenzo

We love the idiosyncratic statement that this Kenzo cover makes. The designer brand is known for its achingly cool prints so why not swathe your iPad in a little piece of the action. The glossy plastic exterior will protect from scratches and the case comes with a screen protector included.

Hublot’s sapphire Big Bang gets an icy new color
Hublot reveals new Big Bang in Glacier Blue
Hublot Big Bang in Glacier Blue

The newest addition to the Hublot MP-11 collection is a formidable presence, measuring a whopping 45mm in diameter and 14.4mm in thickness, so you'll need some major confidence if you want to sport this beast on your wrist. The inaugural Sapphire Big Bang was introduced in 2016 and since then the brand has delighted fans with an array of color iterations, from other sapphire colors to purple and orange. Now, Glacier Blue has been introduced, just in time to keep you cool this summer (in attitude, not temperature, unfortunately.)
Hublot: The Big Bang MP-11 in Glacier Blue

This Big Bang MP-11 features a 14-day power reserve, which is achieved through seven series-coupled barrels arranged in a horizontal configuration, and all of that can be viewed by the wearer. The truly vibrant Glacier Blue (seriously, the blue is so bright you'll feel like you're about to start seeing your breath) is made with a fresh chemical composition but still shares the same properties as sapphire: luminous, and able to withstand scratches.
Technical specifications
This Hublot watch will leave you completely mesmerized for several hours before you even think about the technical specifications, though there are some exceptional details to go over. Inside this MP-11 is the HUB9011 Manufacture manual-winding skeleton power reserve movement. As we mentioned above, there are seven series-coupled barrels, but they've been arranged in a coaxial and vertical configuration so the watch is able to maintain a super slim profile of just 10.9mm. All tied together like a bow on top is the blue transparent structured rubber strap with a titanium deployant buckle clasp.

Patek Philippe on wrist

The watch world is rich with history. With brands like Rolex, Omega, and Tudor coming out of Switzerland, it is easy to forget that they all owe a little part of their success to the father brand of all wristwatches, Patek Philippe. Since they created the first Swiss wristwatch for Countess Koscowicz of Hungary in 1868, they have innovated and led the way to create a massive watch industry that chronophiles love.

This year, at Watches and Wonders, they showed again that they are the best in the business by providing a whole slate of timepieces for us to ogle for the coming year. Here are all the watches Patek Philippe dropped in Geneva that you need to know about.
