ROX MAN 19/20 GADGET MAN

21st September 2020

You don’t have to be technical wizard to enjoy a good gadget. We bring you a selection of the best gizmos on the market. As our old friend Inspector Gadget would say: “Wowsers.”

Gadget Man - Zenith Defy Fusee

ZENITH DEFY EL PRIMERO FUSEE TOURBILLON

Its recent repositioning as the ‘future of fine watchmaking’ has opened the floodgates for Zenith’s horological boffins as well as product designers and materials scientists. All three disciplines come together with sci-fi brilliance here: a Battlestar Galactica-worthy skeleton dial revealing the high-tech hearts of the matter, all gleaming in electric blue. At 6 o’clock, the tumbling, ticking zero-G tourbillon cage. Above it, a miniature chain, regulating torque delivery to the geartrain as the barrel unwinds.

Gadget Man - Sega

SEGA CLASSIC GAME CONSOLE

Now you can play the legendary console in all it’s glory (much to your partner’s despair), with some modern extras thrown in for good measure. This 80’s classic is packed with 81 games including fans favourites Sonic The Hedgehog and Mortal Kombat. The kit also comes with two controllers – it’s competition time!

Gadget Man - Bremont

BREMONT ARMED FORCES ARGONAUT

You’re looking at the culmination of an unprecedented watchmaking programme: the ultimate battle-ready diving watch, honed from Bremont’s years of supplying specially commissioned chronometers to elite military units, getting an exclusive audience with those operatives and as a result, earning endorsement from all three of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. The Argonaut, good to 300 metres underwater with an internal dive-time bezel protected from scrapes, is what the Royal Navy’s best would wear – and if it’s good enough for them? Well, you know the rest.

Gadget Man - Tag Heuer

TAG HEUER CONNECTED MODULAR GOLF

Arguably the most complete smartwatch on the market is now stepping onto the fairway, not only with the requisite sartorial élan – thanks to its glove-like perforated white leather strap – but also formidable technical prowess, given TAG Heuer’s proprietary golf app’s ability to guide your round no less than 39,000 fairways all over the world within a metre’s GPS accuracy, every one of them rendered in three dimensions on your hi-def OLED screen. You can also scratch that scorecard and keep track of everyone’s game with a flick of a fingertip.

Gadget Man - Kettlebell

JAXJOX KETTLEBELLCONNECT

There’s nothing technology can’t get its hands on, the latest victim is the humble kettle bell. KettleBellConnect relies on gravity to change the weight, all you have to do is select your desired weight on the LCD screen and an internal screw does the work in seconds. The battery last 14 hours and there’s an app that aids toward your goal. Space saver sent from space!

DASHING CHAP

Overshadowed for too long by its square-jawed cousin, the Monaco, TAG Heuer’s Autavia is re-establishing itself on pole position as the true petrolhead’s go-to instrument.
