A series based on Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the 2005 Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie action vehicle, has been in the works at Amazon for years, we finally got a look at a trailer this week. This looks like less of a remake, and more of a completely new take on the idea of married secret agents (stars Donald Glover and Maya Erskine appear to be working together, and not kill each other, for starters), and the supporting cast is absolutely stacked with great character actors, and includes Parker Posey, Paul Dano, and John Turturro, among others. This first look, scored to a classic Shirley Bassey song, has us intrigued.
The Vulcain Skindiver Gets a New Blue Dial
Zach reviewed Vulcain’s throwback Skindiver earlier this year, and found a lot to like in the classically styled diver. There’s something unpretentious about it – it simply exists as a solid watch, not self conscious about hitting just the right vintage notes. It’s refreshingly straightforward in a way that a lot of watches aren’t, and in the early days of the relaunch of the storied Vulcain brand, shows consumers that there’s more to the marque than the alarm watches they’re primarily known for.
Now, a new Skindiver has turned up, working on the same platform as the black dialed variant introduced earlier this year. This time, however, we get a gorgeous matte turquoise dial, a signature color of Ocarat, the well known jeweler who is a collaborator with Vulcain on this piece. The new “Skindiver Lagoon,” as it’s known, is a limited edition of just 50 pieces. It’s available for pre-order now. More information here.
