TUDOR BLACK BAY FIFTY-EIGHT NAVY BLUE
For Tudor, the blue thing started in the 1960s, when the brand debuted its first dive watch with a blue dial and bezel. It continued with the Submariners supplied to the French navy, or Marine Nationale, until the mid-’80s, the colour of which serves as the inspiration for the blue hue on the new Black Bay Fifty-Eight Navy Blue. The name and the 39mm case, on the other hand, come from an earlier Sub, from (you guessed it) 1958.

PANERAI LUMINOR MARINA GOLDTECH
While divers have been big news in watchmaking this year, it’s divers all day every day for Panerai. The maker started by supplying big, beefy watches to the Italian navy in the 1930s, and the no-nonsense display and unique case shape —both derived from those early pieces—are what still appeal to this day. The scale, of course, is what gets it noticed on your wrist. But the gold in this all-new version, with its blue sunray dial, will certainly help.

In a world of environmental disaster, political turmoil, economic crisis, social upheaval and public health emergency, is the logical next step for humanity the construction of floating maritime communities? Or is so-called seasteading just an extravagant passion project for paranoid tech bros and alt-utopian dreamers?
The prolific public embrace of ‘cancelling’ disgraced or accused celebrities means the erasure of certain parts of our shared cultural history. But how, Huw Walmsley-Evans wonders, can we separate the art from the artist?

Making Money Moves
Money can’t buy happiness, but it sure does help to alleviate stress and uplift moods, even if it may be deemed temporary. But is retail therapy just a fancy excuse to shop, or does it actually work?
The works and names of late artists live on and gain multiple reincarnations via a medium that has often been derided as ‘not art’, writes Asri Jasman.
The Life Of Brian
It wasn’t long ago that Rich Brian was just a tween creating skit videos in the suburbs of Indonesia. Five years later, with two albums under his belt, Brian puts out 1999, a deeply personal EP. It’d appear that he has finally grown up and if so, is it a good thing?

What I categorize as mainstream, dealer-based, fancy-pants stream-ers and big-speakers audio is actually only the gold-plated tip of a gigantic asteroid-like monolith that extends (underground) from New York to Hong Kong, from the Arctic Circle to Antarctica. This immense audio-social mass is mostly invisible to the Madison Avenue mainstream, but simple Google searches expose millions of proletarian audio-gear constructers (DIY’ers) working in shops, basements, and garages, scratch-building everything from turntables to tonearms to phono cartridges, to capacitors and vacuum tubes, to amplifiers, headphones, ribbon and electrostatic speakers.
