This 1985 BMW K100RS from the Spanish workshop Bolt Motor Company is something of a template. The creases have been ironed out, the lines straightened, and the components tastefully upgraded. It’s a restrained yet skilled transformation, as you’d expect from an outfit that shares its home (and personnel) with a Formula 2 race team — via Bike EXIF

The watch is the latest addition to Bremont’s U-2 range, which the British watch manufacturer originally developed for select clients in elite military squadrons. The U-2/51 Jet draws design inspiration from several of these earlier models as well as from a specific branch of the British Royal Air Force (RAF) — the RAF 100 Squadron, the first team formed for night bombing, in 1917. The resulting watch is a veritable stealth bomber for the wrist — via WatchTime

Science, Wildlife

World’s first domesticated foxes / Verge Science

Verge Science met the very cute and very bizarre result of an almost 60-year-long experiment: they’re foxes that have been specially bred for their dog-like friendliness toward people. They do a little behaviour research of their own, and discover what scientists continue to learn from the world’s most famous experiment in domestication. The fox experiment continues under the supervision of Lyudmila Trut at the Institute of Cytology and Genetics. Her book How to Tame a Fox (and Build a Dog), co-authored by Lee Alan Dugatkin, details the history and science behind the experiment — via Youtube

This one-bedroom, one-bath boxy home in Tennessee was just listed and according to agent Barbara Apking, the offers are already rolling in. Built by long time University of Tennessee architecture professor William Starke Shell, the 150 square metre home features a flat roof, 12-by-12 steel beams, and huge glass panels. Located on an 24 metre cliff on 1.2 acres in a South Knoxville neighbourhood, the home took over a decade for Shell to build by himself; Shell worked as the designer, general contractor, project manager, and labourer. The all-glass walls still feel private thanks to a green forest of pines, dogwoods, and maples and a lack of neighbours. Shell called the house a residential pavilion for a retired person, and in 2015 it won an American Institute of Architects East Tennessee Merit Award for its design — via Curbed

The Urwerk UR-111C uses a totally new kind of time display that’s a bit of a departure from the orbital satellite system that the brand is best known for. On the front there are two conical displays — jumping hours on the left and running minutes on the right — and a unique helix-shaped minutes indicator in the centre that also has a retrograde function. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s also a jumping digital seconds display on the top of the watch that uses an array of optical fibres to project the numbers up toward the sapphire crystal window. Price: CHF 130,000 — via Hodinkee

Located in Armonk, New York, about 50 minutes north of the city, this four-bedroom, two-bath mid century was built in 1957 by architect Arthur Witthoefft of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. The home is a 7.6×29 metre rectangle featuring a black exposed-steel frame, white glazed brick, and huge floor-to-ceiling glass sliders. It sits on a sloping site, surrounded by the forest of Westchester County. The design won an AIA First Honour Award in 1962, and multi-year renovations overseen by Witthoefft in 2007 brought the home back to its glory days. 11 Tallwoods Road is on the market now for $2,195,000 — via Curbed

Everyone knows the iconic Glass House by American modernist Philip Johnson in New Canaan, Connecticut. Perhaps lesser known is a follow-up design, located just a five-minute drive away from the 1949-built masterpiece. Completed in 1953 for Johnson’s friend, Alice Ball, the namesake home is often referred to as a livable version of the Glass House. While still compact, low slung, and rectilinear with plenty of glass to go around, the Alice Ball House offers more privacy despite its proximity to the street. The 165 square metre all-white residence features an airy open living and dining area surrounded by glass walls, but the kitchen and two bedrooms are more enclosed. The property, sitting on 2.2 acres with an original guest house and Johnson-designed sculpture garden, is now on the market for $7.7 million — via Curbed

The watches we have here today though, the PAM 790 and PAM 791, break the mold a little bit. The Radiomir 1940 case is just as you’d expect it to be (rendered here in the 47mm size), but the dials of these two watches are inspired by a historic pendulum clock that sat in Panerai’s original boutique in Florence. They both forgo the sandwich construction and ample lume, opting instead for flat dials that have Art Deco style numerals, printed chapter rings, and ornate, faceted hands. They’re decidedly old-school and a little dressier than what you’re used to from Panerai.  Both watches are powered by the P.3000 calibre, which is Panerai’s in-house hand-wound movement. It packs three days of power reserve and the finishing has a sort of industrial edge to it. Technically, the two models are identical, with the only variation being the black or ivory dial. Each is limited to 300 pieces. Price: $9,200 — via Hodinkee

This eight-bedroom, 11-bath property can satisfy outdoorsy needs no matter the season; it’s located on both the 11th tee of a Tom Fazio-designed golf course and adjacent to the Tiehack ski lift at Buttermilk ski resort. That location—to say nothing of the luxurious amenities inside — begets a hefty price tag in a town that regularly boasts homes in the tens of millions.

The house is a state listed building. That’s down to its experimental concrete shell, which was apparently a first time use for that type of construction outside of Melbourne, where it was pioneered by Kevin Borland and Robin Boyd in the 1950s. The finish on this one is immaculate and that’s not just down to years of preservation. The house, which actually dates back to 1969, has been sympathetically refurbished to a very high standard. It is up for auction with a guide of between $600,000 and $650,000 — via WowHaus

The 234 square metre house was built in 1962 by Verne Lars Solberg, a successful commercial architect in northern Illinois. When a doctor in Polo asked Solberg to design a house, the architect was given free range to design whatever he saw fit; this Usonian style, three bedroom, two bath stunner was the result. The recently restored home features original built-ins, cabinetry, and custom-designed lamps and furniture built by Solberg in the 1960s. 11840 East Buffalo Street wants $325,000 — via Curbed
