Naadam Cashmere Sweaters for Kaufmann Mercantile

naadam.jpg

What's better than good cashmere? How about cashmere that actually does some good. Naadam is bringing its cashmere goods to Kaufmann Mercantile with an accessory and sweater collection made from fibers that come straight from nomadic herders that have harvested the wool on the Mongolian Steppe. The cashmere has a 12-gauge knit and the fiber is sourced from goats that live in extreme cold which makes their wool softer, longer, and more importantly isn't itchy or piles. Naadam has also focused on helping nomadic herders preserve their way of life with a percentage of the proceeds being donated to the World Bank to fund livestock insurance.

$75-$350, Kaufmann Mercantile

MB&F HM6 Space Pirate

It's probably one of the weirdest watches you've ever laid your eyes and it's probably one of the most amazing. The Captain Future-inspired HM6 is the latest piece of mad science to come out of MB&F with a watch comprised of 475 components that all come together to form a horological art piece that resembles some sort of alien technology.

In development for three years, the watch features five sapphire spheres which individually house a tourbillon with a retractable shield to protect it against potential UV damage, hour and minute indicators, and a set of turbines which regulate the winding system to help reduce stress and wear. No photo will do this watch justice so sit back and watch in awe as the MB&F team present the HM6 in all its timekeeping glory.
