TAG Heuer Celebrates Its 160th Anniversary by Combining the Carrera and Montreal

2020 marks the 160th anniversary for Swiss luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer, and earlier this year, the brand had released a 1964 Carrera chronograph reissue to celebrate the occasion. Now, it’s following up with yet another limited edition, this time combining the iconic Carrera chronograph with a rather surprising watch: the first-generation Montreal.   Taking a ’70s Carrera chronograph as its base, the brand applied the design sensibilities of the first-generation Montreal, creating a truly bold chronograph filled with whites, blues, reds, and yellows, adorning all parts of the watch including the dial, indices, minute and hour hands, the vibrant seconds hand, as well as all three subdials. The case itself is stainless steel and measures in at a more classic 39mm, with a windowed caseback on the...

New Exhibition ‘Colorful Japan’ Examines Japanese Branding & Poster Design

The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam is showing a new exhibition titled Colorful Japan that offers a close examination of Japanese branding and poster design. The gallery was put together in celebration of Shigeru Watano’s expansive legacy, the late graphic designer who lived in the Netherlands and brought over his unique cultural design sensibilities. His relationship with the museum and several Japanese designers alike have resulted in the large accumulation of Japanese posters, a collection that now spans approximately 800 posters.   The exhibition has been curated with the works of prominent Japanese artists, like Ikko Tanaka and Tadanori Yokoo, painstakingly arranging each poster by color. From a vibrant Nikon ad to various fashion posters, many of the pieces are mid-century artworks that offer a...

Tesla Cuts Prices; Model S and X Long Range

Tesla is dropping the base models (again), except this time, the prices aren't increasing as they did in January. Consistent with Tesla's frequently adjusted pricing and product availability, the latest changes that quietly appeared on the Tesla website this week dropped two cheaper models of the Model S and Model X. The Standard Range cars are gone, and the Long Range cars—now the base trim—are each down $8010. That means that, for just a couple grand more than the base models that were still being made last week, the Model S is finally at eye level with gasoline-powered luxury cars, at least in estimated EPA range. The 370-mile Model S (up from the Standard Range's 285) costs $81,190. The 325-mile Model X (up from...
