Not many men wrap a Tarantino western, then begin filming a classic remake helmed by Luhrmann, and then begin work on a Scorsese crime drama. In fact, no man but one: The great Leonardo Dicaprio. Last week at the Plaza Hotel, Leo joined his Gatsby co-stars Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire (plus a guy named Jay-Z) at the New York premiere of the film. And what’s that looking dapper on his wrist? That would be a TAG Heuer CARRERA Calibre 1887 Rose Gold timepiece. This stunning piece of wrist bling is the reengineered offspring of Edouard Heuer’s original timepiece, which originally made waves back in 1887 with its oscillating pinion. Inspired by motor racing, the timepiece features a double anti-reflective treatment to enhance readability as well as scratch resistant sapphire crystal fitted into the caseback. If we can’t all look like Leo, might as well adorn ourselves in his likeness, right?

Feit has just added a handsome looking NATO watch strap to their cache beautiful, all natural, hand made sneakers and accessories. Some historical contexting: NATO straps were originally made for the British military and only made in admiralty grey nylon and in one width—20mm, and with an extra long strap so it could be worn over pilot’s flight suits (this spring, maybe your light jacket). The buckle is on the side so it is less likely to catch on weapons or, you know, your clothing. Tull Price, the company’s founder (who also works with Rag & Bone) says “Such a badass watch strap deserves a little more than grey nylon so we gave it the FEIT treatment, and because we don’t have a 007 permit to pollute, we used our Italian vegetable leather, which is tanned without any chrome or harmful chemicals.” Only 20 straps of each color—marine (dark navy), natural (leather) and nero (black)—will be made and they’re up for pre-order, in sizes 18,20 or 22mm now for $165.

Where to buy after the jump.
Swatches of watches is what’s on the mind of Jack Spade, as the trusted brand introduces its inaugural timepiece collection this March. And just in time, too, cause the pale of our wrists was beginning to edge on quite noticeable. Within the whopping thirty-seven piece collection, you’ll find a surplus of design including sport, dress, pillow tank, dual time zone, and an irreverent graphic series. Essentially, selection is not something they’re skimping on here. The self-proclaimed “watch fanatics” over at Jack Spade chose two aesthetic directions for the collection: One elevated — think 1970s sports watches — and the other graphic entry-level, with the brand’s typical satirical undertone announcing that the watches have “no jewels,” and are “not Swiss” made. The more refined watches, showcasing Swiss movements and sapphire crystal, feature a movement developed specifically for Jack Space that can tell an alternative time zone with its fourth sweep hand. The collection, priced between $98 and $528, launches March 1st in the brand’s US stores and jackspade.com along with retail partners Nordstrom and Barney’s New York. A first look at the collection…
