Leica finally made my dream digital camera. With it, you have manual controls for shutter speed, aperture, and ISO – nothing else. There isn’t even a LCD screen. It’s perfect. Only problem? It’s also something like $13,000. Damnit!
I know, I know… This thing is ridiculous… It serves no purpose and has no practicality what-so-ever. However, from a pure mechanical standpoint this is absolutely AMAZING. And hey, if you’ve got an extra $25k sitting around you could let it collect dust on your bookshelf.
I wouldn’t cut a brick shit house in half or get in a street fight with one (they are made by the French), but dammit man – these new Deejo knives are pretty gorgeous… Super light too… And you can even “build your own” on their fancy web site starting at $40.
Feast your eyes on the above… That’s a Heuer Camaro – a manual wind Chronograph made between 1967 and 1972 or so. Heuer Camaros are special in their own right, but what makes this watch so damned cool is the “Champion” logo featured on the dial. No one really knows why Heuer produced the watch with the Champion logo, but they have become very collectable. In fact, the watch pictured went for around $3700 on eBay…
My guess? Top execs at Champion were given one hell of a Christmas bonus.
Either way, I want one.
