Oakley, Ducati, Saeco, and More - Premiere Collection

Top-notch toys for the most discriminating tastes.

Oct 6, 2010

Oakley, Oh My!
Forged in the fires of... errr... made from a block of solid carbon fiber, the C Six (a reference to carbon's place in the periodic table) is "the most technically innovative sunglass ever created." Oakley partnered with F1 racecar-builders Crosby Composites of London, known for crafting the best carbon fiber around. For each pair, five-axis Computer Numeric Control machines use diamond-tipped milling heads to shape a 40-layer-thick brick of carbon fiber composite, a tooling process that takes more than 24 hours.

Running On Empty
We've seen watches inspired by classic automotive gauges before, but nothing so literal as this Chotovelli. Designed in Torino, theTwin Spark's attractive face is a direct reproduction of an iconic Alfa Romeo fuel gauge. Maybe Alfa will come to the U.S. this year. Maybe they won't. Either way, you can have at least this little piece to tide you over until they do.

Hottie Ducati
With 180 hp standard and 186 hp with the optional race kit, the Ducati 1198 R Corse is not so much a crotch rocket as a crotch weapon of mass destruction. It's a super-light, super-fast, super-duper version of the standard Corse, though standard is a relative term when it comes to Ducati. Our two-wheeled cousins certainly are a crazy bunch, aren't they?

Foosballin'
Originally a one-off model, Audi's initial foosball table was more a design study than something the company planned to sell. Kind of a "let's see what Audi elements we can transfer to everyday household items." Then there was such a response from fans that Audi graciously decided to manufacture (a few) more. Audi/foosball fanatics, hop to it. Only 20 will be made, and they won't be cheap.

As You Like It
The Saeco Xelsis Digital ID is the ultimate custom coffee and espresso machine. Program your desired coffee blend and flavor, temperature, cream, sugar and foam preferences, and the Xelis saves that information. Put your thumb up to the fingerprint reader, and it'll whip up your perfect cup of joe. Now you can feel like the CIA agent you always wanted to be.
