WDSG recently released a new collection “WDSG Limited Edition 2013 Experimental Series” to arouse the awareness of the public to treasure the society we live in and be less wasteful on resources. Their design concept for the series is “Deconstruction”, and indeed the key to this series is not just about decomposing of the materials but more so about “forming and deforming; deconstruction and reconstruction”
WDSG Introduces their new collection called “Gentlewomen by WDSG”. Now i know that I tend to lean towards the menswear collections through this site but this collection was something to highlight. This collection was derived from the 1920′s era in the USA, portaying liberation and independence through-out their pieces. This collection was inspired by Amelia Earhardt.
IWC Mark XI Pilot Watch
At first glance, this IWC Mark XI Pilot Watch doesn’t look like much. However, peel back the layers on the watch’s storied pedigree and impressive vintage hand-wound caliber 89 movement and you just might find enough to justify the estimated $6,000 USD price tag. Swiss watch maker IWC was one of the original contracts whose watches were issued exclusively to British airmen during World War II, with production for the Mark XI beginning in 1948. Standard for many pilot watches of the time, the brushed, stainless steel case is fitted with an internal casing of soft iron to protect the movement from being adversely affected by magnetic fields. The watch itself gets a Nato strap, and luminous hour and minute markers. And if you’re still not sold, a close look at the watch’s case back reveals its extremely limited numbers — a true war survivor, and one highly sought after by watch collectors.
