Marking the first collaboration between Swatch and Omega, their Bioceramic MoonSwatch is a budget friendly take on Omega’s original Speedmaster (which was the first watch to visit the moon, hitching a ride with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin during the Apollo 11 mission in July 1969). Whilst the original houses an automatic movement and is prices in the thousands, the Omega x Swatch MoonSwatch is quartz and priced around £218. Showcased here is the 42mm Mission to the Moon, which is steel grey and finished with a black velcro strap. All the watches are Bioceramic, feature a tachymeter, and use glow-in-the-dark superluminova on the seconds hands and hour markers so you can keep track of your insomnia at night time. The MoonSwatch collection features a total of 11 space-inspired watches which can only officially be bought directly from an IRL Swatch shop. Well worth a buy if you’re lucky enough to find them in stock. Alternatively, you’ll be able to get one through a reseller… but only if you’re happy to pay their premium.

Nowadays you can power and recharge most things with a simple USB connection, and lighters are no exception. Welcome to the world of Electric Arc Lighters. Also known as Plasma lighters, these flameless ignition boxes work by surging electricity between two conducting electrodes. The air between the two electrodes becomes ionised creating a visually mesmerising, but also very hot, blue arc. The most practical benefit of using a flameless Arc Lighter over traditional gas lighters lies in it’s wind-resistance. Try blowing out an electric current. Environmentally friendly, consistently ignites, and on a full charge (which takes about 2 hours) can last for about a week, or 200 uses. Although our favourite is the Gold Bullion Arc Lighter, it comes in a vast array of shapes, colours, and sizes to suit your style.
There’s a myriad of ways to brew your morning coffee, one of the favourites for flavour is to heat it on a stove using a moka pot. The 6-Cup Bialetti Moka Express Espresso Maker will keep you and your friends/family/pets caffeinated throughout the day with great tasting coffee. If a 6-cup version isn’t the size you’re looking for, they come in sizes from 1-cup to 12-cup. The espresso maker works by passing boiling water, pressurised by steam, from the bottom section through the ground coffee and into the top section ready to be poured and enjoyed. Fun fact: So you can sound like a true coffee aficionado while you brew the bean, the moka pot was patented for the first time in Italy in 1933 by its inventor, Luigi De Pointi, for Alfonso Bialetti.
