Glasses have gone from the accessory of nerds to something so trendy almost everyone wears them. It might have something to do with the fact that staring at screens all day everyday is terrible for our eyes so more people are in of need them and need them at earlier ages. Most companies are realizing that we want stylish, sophisticated frames– except, it seems, the makers of readers. LOOK OPTIC is changing all that by allowing you to look damn cool while reading, plus, they are partners with Charity:Water.

Readers are cheap but as a result fantastically ugly. Still, for people who have trouble seeing small print (thanks, computers) but who don’t need a full prescription, this was the only option. LOOK OPTIC burst onto the scene with quality, stylish readers designed by industry veterans from places like Oliver Peoples.

LOOK OPTIC’s pairs are a bit more than you’d pay at your drugstore ($68/pair) but they last longer: made of lightweight materials that will never leave a dent in your nose and Italian springs that adjust to your handsome face. These are glasses you’ll be excited to wear and careful about keeping. Interestingly, they look nothing like traditional, end-of-your-nose readers. These are traditional designs with a sophisticated, modern twist. Choose from colors like yellow, grey, or red or opt for black or tortoise shell. Plus, if you find you do need a prescription at some point (again, thank you computers), you can just pop out the lens and use your LOOK OPTIC frames for the prescription lenses from your doctor. They offer a generous one-year warranty and if you should ever lose the felt case they come in, LOOK OPTIC will send you a new one for just the cost of shipping!

The company doesn’t just stop at making you look awesome while you read: they give 1% of their profits to Charity:Water, the non-profit started by former photojournalist Scott Harrison. Harrison saw firsthand the easily preventable, fatal results of contaminated water while working in Liberia. “I have known Scott [Harrison] for years,” LOOK OPTIC founder Andrew Leary says. 

“And have been to Africa with him a few years ago. …Knowing unsafe water is the number one cause of preventable blindness, it was an easy choice. We are donating $10 per sale for the first 1,000 online sales, as well as 1% of all profits. Charity: water is very unique as 100% of all donations go towards projects (they raise the admin separately) and projects can be tracked using Google Earth.”

It’s easy to see LOOK OPTIC is a game changing company.

Porsche, TAG Heuer team up for Carrera Chronograph honoring the 911, a timeless classic
A gorgeous timepiece in honor of a true classic
TAG Heuer Porsche watches on wheel

There are fewer sports cars as iconic and persistent as the Porsche 911. Performance has improved, and some features like natural aspiration and air cooling have gone the way of the dinosaurs -- but at its core (and in its styling), the 911 is pretty much the same rear engine beauty that Porsche unveiled back in September 1963. It is currently celebrating its 60th anniversary, as is a much-loved piece of chronography -- the TAG Heuer Carrera.

So it’s only fitting that TAG Heuer, an equally iconic Swiss watchmaker with strong racing links, has partnered up with Porsche to commemorate the German company’s flagship motor. The “Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche” is a beautiful chronograph and a fantastic bit of engineering. Its styling manages to cram in more references to the 911’s 60-year history than we can count without looking garish or overstated.

The most limited new watch in Panerai’s Navy SEALs comes bundled with a chance to be miserable on a beach.
