Rolex Explorer ref. 1016 (from the 70's)

Did you know that this is the original James Bond watch and that author Ian Fleming owned only one watch in his life which was, yep you guessed it, a Rolex Explorer 1016.

Leverage this with the story of the Rolex Explorer watch being worn by one of the two explorers climbing Mount Everest for the first time and you have an idea of how iconic this watch actually is.

I sold my Bell & Ross and am saving up for my own 1016.

Antique Dutch tiles

Today when we were shopping in the city, we came across this building that they were renovating. I don't know for sure if they were keeping the tiles. Would be a shame if they got rid of them.

The Inoue Brothers

The Inoue Brothers was founded in 2004 by Japanese brothers Satoru and Kiyoshi Inoue born and raised in Copenhagen. They're a design/art studio based on a common love for two cultures, Japanese sensibility and Scandinavian simplicity.

Finally I've got my Mark McNairy's in. At first I ordered the wrong size and had to return these, so it all took a bit longer. The laces you see on mine don't originally come with this model, but Mark McNairy send them to me, because I liked them so much. Thanks Mark!

Oldie but goodie

For me the Acne Fall/ Winter 2008 collection is still the best they ever did. I still often watch it for inspiration.
