The legendary brand, known for its mix of handsome, refined and highly functional watches for all occasions, just shook up the watch market with a much-needed introduction — and you should take note if you’re a lefty in need of a new, stylish dive watch. The LHD is one-of-a-kind and features the technical specs of a standout dive watch, with a winding stem on the left side of the case.

Tudor watches are just as well-known for their beautiful, pleasingly rugged design as they are for their ability to be worn on land and sea. The Pelagos LHD builds off the renowned quality of the original Pelagos–one of the models that built the Tudor brand. The titanium bracelet LHD features a ceramic matte black disc dial, strong markings and a classic dive bezel — in short, it’s the type of watch you can wear with your favorite suit, a stylish winter blazer or a tailored topcoat.

Oh, and if you feel like throwing on something more rugged — say, a slim chambray shirt and durable leather chukka boots — the Tudor Pelagos LHD is going to play quite nicely off a more casual outfit, too.

What’s more, the brand uses its own in-house movement, a surefire sign of excellent quality and reliability in terms of timekeeping. Like the rest of its collection, the Pelagos LHD is built for movement — if you’re hitting the road for travel, taking a deep sea diving trip or traveling cross-country on a business trip, it’s the one watch you need. Between the titanium bracelet and handsome, versatile black dial, you could feasibly wear it all week long and on into the weekend – and for an investment-worthy watch, that’s absolutely how you should wear it. Left-handers, rejoice – you’ve got a new watch to buy.

Matching Wedding Watches Are a New Option For Newlyweds Eyeing The End of Time

Modern society is shrugging off many of its old-world values, and the ways we approach romantic relationships, engagements, weddings, and families are not immune to the trends. These days, giving an engagement ring can seem almost as up to date as busting your love interest over the head with a club and dragging them into a cave by the hair (with apologies to any who may find that trope culturally insensitive). Given contemporary values of equality (real or hoped for) in today’s marriage dynamic — not to mention the wider acceptance of same-sex nuptials — a fresher and more visible decoration of your intentions may be the engagement watch! The gender-neutral accessory is not only practical, but it can also be a great long-term investment, and appropriately speaks to the hopes for a lifetime together.

Banana Republic’s New Jeans Are Changing the Way Denim Is Made

Doing things sustainably in the fashion industry -- one that can sometimes cut corners in favor of churning out the latest and greatest -- isn’t always easy. And that’s doubly so when it comes to crafting men’s denim, one of the most energy and resource-intensive products on the market -- and yet, Banana Republic’s remarkable new Dry Indigo Denim is changing the way denim is made by using a heck of a lot less water than normal in the process. 

By a heck of a lot less water, to be precise, we mean that Banana Republic’s new denim line is made using 99% (yes, 99%) less water than conventional denim, to go along with 89% fewer chemicals, reducing energy usage by a whopping 65% in the process. It’s the foam-dyeing process that cuts down on energy and water usage so effectively, while at the same time delivering a pair of jeans with the same look, fit, and feel as traditional (less eco-conscious) denim.
