BAMFORD MAYFAIR WATCH
Taking a cue from car dealerships, Bamford Watch Department last year built a "Service Watch" that was lent out to clients while their timepiece was in for maintenance. People loved it and wanted to purchase one for themselves, so the Bamford Mayfair watch was born. Measuring in at a classic 40mm size with Military Grade Titanium Coating (MGTC), the watch is available in two versions — one with a matte grey case, anodized aluminum bezel, and leather strap, and one with a more sinister black case, matte ceramic bezel, and rubber strap. Both watches' indices and hands are finished in LumiNova for legibility and are powered by a Quartz Miyota 2035 movement. The Mayfair is your daily driver. Your vintage Rolex is the one that stays in the garage except on special occasions.
OFF GRID SURVIVAL AXE ELITE
If you had to stash just one emergency tool in your pack or glove compartment, the Survival Axe Elite would be the right choice. In addition to a resharpenable hatchet blade, it has a hammer with a reinforced claw, a 6-inch replaceable metal saw integrated into the handle, a gas valve shut off wrench, a handful of hex sockets, a seat belt cutter, and, of course, a bottle opener. Plus, there's a sharpened hook, nail puller, pry bar, box cutter, and glass breaker, among the many other uses you can find for the edges and nooks of the axe. It's crafted from sturdy, black oxide-coated 420 stainless steel with a full tang that extends down the length of the glass-filled nylon handle, yet weighs just 1.5 pounds and measures under a foot from top to bottom. Blade sheath included. Made in the USA.

Leatherman continues to upgrade one of the most trustworthy multi-tools in the world.

A small and large bit driver is also included, along with an 8-inch ruler, bottle and can openers, diamond-coated and wood/metal files, and a small and large bit driver. Every feature can be opened with one hand and quite a few of the tools are outside-accessible so you can use them when the multi-tool is folded and closed. The Wave Plus is available in all black with a black nylon Molle carrying sheath so it's ready at a moment's notice.
TOP DAWG HOT DOG MACHINE
Seriously step up your tailgate game just in time for football season with the Top Dawg Hot Dog Machine ($135). While everyone else is carefully cooking up dogs piecemeal like suckers, you can just let this machine do the work, focusing on the important stuff (like watching the game, and drinking your beer before it gets warm). It has room to cook 18 dogs at a time — so you can load it up with plenty of brats, metts, franks, cheddarwursts, sausages — and its stainless steel rollers rotate completely, so you know everything will get cooked to stadium perfection.
We all know the deal — gas grills get going instantly, while charcoal imparts more flavor but can take a while to warm up. Or at least it used to. The BBQ Dragon ($50) is a new grilling gadget that starts charcoal faster than a traditional chimney by blowing large amounts of low-velocity air at the fire. Capable of starting a charcoal grill in just 10 minutes — without the need for lighter fluid — it also works great for campfires, fireplaces, wood stoves, and smokers, all while giving you more precise control over the temperature. Expected to arrive in August, or just in time for Labor Day cookouts.

FLYRIDE FLYING PERSONAL WATERCRAFT
Zapata has developed a new watercraft that lets you fly, and it's easier than riding a bike. Using a water jet thrust attached to a jet ski hose, the Flyride is propelled as water runs up the middle of the bike and is forced out through twin steerable jets at the front. Self-balancing sensors keep the Flyride upright, and there are four different flight modes, along with throttle assistance, and an automated takeoff routine. There's even a barrel roll button that becomes active once you have enough altitude, spinning you around once or twice before returning you to vertical.

The dial is black on both with military-style broad arrow hands. Automatic movement is at its core, never needing a battery, along with the hacking function vital for synchronization.
1970 TUPOLEV A-3 AEROSLEDGE N007
The Tupelov Design Bureau is known for designing all manner of Soviet Cold War aircraft — from the military Tu-95 Bear to the Tu-144, the Soviet Union's answer to the Concorde. The A-3 Aerosledge occupies a much more unique place in Soviet history: It was designed to pickup cosmonauts and pilots across the Siberian tundra. The design specs stated that it had to be able to travel over snow, ice, and water. Alexi Tupelov's answer was an aerosledge — a vehicle that utilizes ground effect to skim over the ground on a cushion of air. This A-3 was spirited out of the Soviet Union and received a complete restoration in Germany, making it one of the most interesting and functional relics of the Cold War.

The beam is perfectly balanced and better preserves your dark-adapted vision since it doesn’t have an intense hot spot. And its wide beam pattern was designed to fit your field of view. Because of all these factors, it better maintains your overall situational awareness, crucial for safely navigating in the dark.
