Emperador cigar chest

You could call it a humidor, but that seems far too pedestrian. Imperiali Geneve’s Emperador cigar chest incorporates over 2,600 individual components to deliver the most luxurious smoke box we’ve ever seen. On top is a tourbillon timepiece made from over 300 pieces by a Swiss watchmaker, surrounded by 24 individual glass tubes, each of which comes prepacked with a grand cru cigar wrapped in four gold leaves. This compartment is secured by a passcode while the included cigar cutter, table lighter and ashtray repose securely in a front drawer. Of course, the Emperador pays equal attention to the care of your cigars, incorporating the world’s first self-regulating humidity system that needs neither water nor human intervention to keep a constant humidity level of 70 percent and an internal temperature between 61 and 65 F.

Mala Raw Hemp skateboard

The mini cruiser has never been greener and more progressive. This 24-inch mini’s snappy performance is the product of a mellow concave and shorter wheelbase, ideal for carving, cruising and commuting. With 108-millimeter Paris street trucks, 60-millimeter stone-ground wheels and ABEC 7 bearings, it shares all the performance genes of other Rolkaz boards, while still being easily portable.

Speedvagen Urban Racer bicycle

Finally available in matte army green or hot pink, the Speedvagen Urban Racer is designed and handcrafted in Portland, Ore. Lightweight but strong, each bike features a steel frame four to six times stronger than standard steel tubing. You also get a coaster brake, two-speed internal SRAM hub, and a Fabric Scoop titanium rails saddle.

Clear Coffee

There isn’t much downside to drinking fresh coffee. But if there is one thing we could do without, it’s the damage coffee can wreak on your teeth. Clear Coffee is the first colorless coffee drink in the world, and it promises to keep your pearly whites untarnished. It’s made from high-quality arabica coffee beans and pure water without any artificial flavoring, preservatives, sugar or other sweeteners. The result is flavorful, ready-to-drink coffee that’s low in calories but boasts the caffeine boost you need to tackle your day, stain-free.

The new Hydraulic Active Roll Control increases wheel articulation and reins in body roll to keep the Discovery surefooted over nearly any terrain or obstacle. Available starting in 2018.

Apple Watch Series 3

It doesn’t look any different than Series 1 or 2. It’s what’s inside Apple Watch Series 3 that makes all the difference. Starting with a cellular connection, this watch allows you to take calls, message and stream music all without your phone. It also has a 70-percent faster processor, a barometric altimeter for tracking steps climbed and elevation changes and a new fabric sports band option. It’s available in three aluminum finishes, two ceramic Edition versions and a version sans cellular.

Gardenigloo

Simple to set up and environmentally friendly, the Gardenigloo is an intriguing alternative to the backyard hideout. The frame of this geodesic dome is made with PVC struts and high-strength nylon joints, covered by a transparent PVC cover. It’s over 7 feet tall at its highest point and nearly 12 feet in diameter, so there’s plenty of room inside. Should you favor shade rather than shelter, the optional canopy cover adds privacy from the rear and an open entrance ideal for warmer weather.

‘Stars & Cars’

Nothing goes together quite like celebrities and automobiles. Steve McQueen and the “Bullitt” Mustang; James Dean and his Porsche Spyder; James Bond and his gadget-filled Aston Martins; Magnum, P.I.’s Ferrari 308, to name a few. In “Stars & Cars,” Jacques Braunstein exhaustively catalogs not just actors, but artists, musicians and others whose love affairs with four wheels have been almost as famous as the drivers, themselves.

Dedicato A David Tabletop Cigar Cutter

Inspired by the cutters used to halve cigars over a century ago, the Dedicato A David Tabletop Cigar Cutter is a useful throwback to a simpler time. Its sharp, stainless-steel blade is ideal for slicing through wrappers and leaves, and the 20-millimeter hole will accommodate most cigars. It comes attached to a wooden base and has a handsome ox-horn handle.

Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black

Check it out WAM readers: the Bonneville Bobber. The fastest-selling new model in Triumph’s 115-year history, the Bobber has been wildly successful, which means it’s time to improve on an already robust platform. The Bobber Black edition does what any self-respecting gearhead would do to their bike if given Triumph’s factory-parts bin. Dual front disc brakes, bigger forks, fatter tires and a blacked-out-everything finish headline the changes. No price is set yet, but the Bobber Black will hit dealers in early 2018.

Harman Kardon Invoke

Amazon and Google aren’t the only ones bringing voice-powered assistants into your home. Microsoft is throwing its hat into the ring with the new Harman Kardon Invoke. Powered by Cortana, it plays music, places Skype calls, controls your smart home devices and does other Alexa-style tasks when you simply speak in its direction. And unlike most other devices of its ilk, it takes sound seriously, with three woofers and three tweeters hidden inside its stylish aluminum shell.

Edyn Smart Garden System

Gardening can be maddeningly difficult. But it doesn’t have to be. Planted in the soil, the Edyn Garden Sensor continuously monitors light, humidity, temperature, soil nutrition and moisture, referencing these factors against plant databases, soil science and weather trends to give customized guidance via the companion app. It also controls the Edyn Water Valve, which automatically gives plants the right amount of water, ensuring you never over- or undersaturate the ground. In addition, the sensor determines which plants will grow best in your soil, helping to cultivate your green thumb.

Elektra Micro Casa a Leva S1 espresso machine

The retro-styled Elektra Micro Casa a Leva S1 has been on the market for decades. While this spring-lever machine isn’t exactly “micro,” it’s certainly not imposing, sitting on a pedestal roughly 10 inches in diameter and standing less than 20 inches tall. It comes in copper/brass, chrome/brass and chrome finishes and is best complemented by the matching Grinder MS.
