Regardless of what time it is, a man like you is always on, ready to perform whatever task is at hand. Volunteer firefighter? Check. Emcee at Jay-Z and B’s wedding? Check. Diplomatic envoy to the Seychelles? Check. You need a watch that looks as good as you do under the spotlight. The Cartier Santos 100 Watch ($5,750), with its stainless steel case, silver dial and rubber band is more than just a pretty face. Its automatic movement, 100-meter water resistance level and incredible sapphire, scratch-resistant crystal more than live up to the centuries of Cartier craftsmanship you’ve come to expect. It’s go time.
Eat Or Be Eaten
Never one to pass up a smashing visual metaphor, you’re going to need to pick up a Giona Aquarium Fish Bowl ($440) to display in your office, if not for pure aesthetics, for intimidation purposes at the very least. This original design by Alessandra Baldereschi is a hand blown glass aquarium shaped like a whale who’s just eaten the competition alive. Little Goldie swimming laps, oblivious of her circumstances, won’t go unnoticed by those dropping by to discuss the latest merger. This is your world. Everybody else is just swimmin’ in it.
A modern day Magellan, you’ve circumnavigated the globe more times than you can count. There’s not a country you haven’t toured or a body of water you haven’t dipped your toes in. Sounds like it’s about time to give space a shot. Book a flight to “space” with XCOR Aerospace Suborbital Tour ($95,000). For just shy of a 100 grand you can fly over the Karman line (where space begins) and experience weightlessness for about five minutes. The two-seater Lynx rocket plane blasts off from XCOR’s Mojave spaceport, reaching Mach 2 speeds on its way to 200,000 feet, delivering a breathtaking view of earth from the edge of space. Put down your $20,000 deposit and start your G-force training before the Russians beat you to it!
Get Up, Drink Up
One of your favorite loves on earth is jetting to Jamaica for the weekend and horseback riding into the Caribbean Sea (yes, those buggers can swim—Google it). Next time you ride Buttercup into the bay, make sure you’re alert as can be, with a nice cup of Jamaica Blue Mountain Marley Coffee ($40.00). This java is grown and harvested in the Jamaican Blue Mountains by none other than the son of Bob Marley himself. The lightly roasted bean has a rich earthy flavor with bright acidity. True to Marley’s roots, a portion of the proceeds benefits youth soccer and sustainable farming in Jamaica. So get up, drink up… drink up for their rights.
Singing In The Rain
On your most recent excursion to the Southeast Asian jungle, you learned the hard way that the trusty cotton hoodie from your alma mater just doesn’t hold up during a monsoon. To stay dry through the rainy season while maintaining your stylish good looks, slip on a Moschino Trench Coat ($479). The double-breasted Navy trench with belted waste and notched lapels combines Italian couture with a military flair. Between the bright red lining and the perfectly positioned epaulets, you’ll do a rain dance just for an opportunity to wear it. Pair it with your Striped Pliant Auto Umbrella and you’ll be ready for whatever spring—or the rain Gods—dish out.
