Dive watches look cool and lend an air of adventure to anyone wearing one, even those whose last underwater experience was in a hot tub. The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms “No Radiation” is a great example of an iconic dive watch. Originally issued to elite French and German frogman commando units, interest from dive watch enthusiasts have made these watches virtually impossible to find. Bowing to demand, Blancpain is releasing a limited edition of 500 that are true to the initial design. Unlike a smartwatch dial that tends to light up like a Broadway sign, the Fifty Fathoms displays the time via non-radioactive Super-LumiNova. Watertight to 300 meters, the automatic movement is housed in a sturdy stainless steel case engraved with the serial number of each watch. Unbuckling the rubber strap and turning it over allows you to view the movement in action via the clear sapphire rear crystal. The “No Rads” Fifty Fathoms is one of the coolest ways to stay on time; Blancpain.com.

Aroids include many common houseplants like monsteras, peace lilies, philodendrons, pothos and ZZ plants. While many of these tend to be “low light” indoor plants, they’re often understory plants in the wild. The International Aroid Society aims to educate the world on these wonders of Mother Nature.
