Sennheiser HE-1



"In 1991 we created the best headphones in the world. We called them Orpheus. Now, we have done it again. The uncompromising philosophy remaining, this is Sennheiser HE 1. In otherworldly sound and timeless beauty. Perfectly engineered. Equipped with unique features and state-of-the-art technology these headphones transform music from something you listen to, into something you live in."

"Before you order the Sennheiser HE 1, we want to make you aware of the progress of the purchase process. As the purchase of the Sennheiser HE 1 is an extraordinary event in your life, it is also an extraordinary event for us. Thus, each Sennheiser HE 1 is built and commissioned specifically for each customer and requires a maximum of individual processes. Our production manufactures the individual noble product parts only after previous receipt of payment of the so-called deposit. Since each Sennheiser HE 1 is as individual as its future owner, we will discuss all further steps with you after receipt of the initial payment and personally accompany you until you receive the device and also far beyond."

Gibson Super 400 China Dragon



"This one-of-a-kind carved masterpiece was built by the great master luthier Bruce Kunkel at the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville. It took hundreds of hours to complete and is one of the greatest treasures to ever come out of the Gibson Custom Shop. Bruce did all of the relief carvings himself, and designed the inlays."

"This guitar features hand-carved dragons in relief on the spruce top and figured maple back. The neck is hand-carved in dragon scales. These are not run-of-the-mill carvings. These are meticulously crafted art pieces, with fantastic detail."

S-Works Tarmac SL7



"Why should you be forced to choose between aerodynamics and weight, between ride quality and speed? It's simple, you shouldn't. Enter the new Tarmac—climb on the lightest bike the UCI allows, then descend on the fastest. We've utilized our most advanced technologies, from our FreeFoil Shape Library to an all-new Rider-First Engineered™ frame, to deliver a race bike that is truly without compromise. The days of making sacrifices between "aero" and "lightweight" bikes are over—the all-new Tarmac is the fastest race bike, ever. One bike to rule them all."

"With an army of the world’s best test riders from our three World Tour Teams — Boels-Dolmans, Deceuninck-Quick-Step, and Bora-hansgrohe — we made changes to the Tarmac based on their thousands of kilometers on the road. We balanced the ride quality between the front and rear end, so even the longest days in the saddle continue to be comfortable—all without giving up anything to the Tarmac’s legendary handling and race-winning snappiness."

Omega Speedmaster Grey Side of The Moon



"OMEGA’s Speedmaster “Grey Side of the Moon” is an innovative addition to the Speedmaster collection. With its grey ceramic case, sand-blasted platinum 950 dial, Moonwatch-style hands, ceramic bezel and tachymetric scale in white Super-LumiNova, this timepiece is not only ready for adventure but is stylish beyond compare."

"Reminiscent of its legendary predecessors, the Speedmaster “Grey Side of the Moon” has a 60-minute and 12-hour recorder at 3 o’clock and a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock. OMEGA’s Co-Axial calibre 9300 can be seen through the bevelled sapphire crystal caseback."

Rolex Air King "Domino's"



"Hard work pays off, and in the case of stoner-favorite Domino’s – the world’s second-largest pizza chain – the sweet reward comes in the form of a branded Rolex. You read that right: a flashy Rolex watch that bears the logo of the multibillion-dollar company. It’s a perk long reserved for high-earning Domino’s store managers — and not what you’d expect from a brand whose food items are largely regarded as down-market."

This is a grail to me. The Absurd juxtaposition is too perfect to ignore; Camus would be proud. You can read up a bit more about the history here.
