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.

Called the Tiehack House and designed and developed by Bob Bowden, the recently constructed 13,690-square-foot house sits on three acres with vistas galore. 651 Pfister Drive is now listed for $36 million — via Curbed

Back To Classics’ latest showpiece is this 1978 Ducati 900 Super Sport, an NCR-fettled racer that began life as a privateer entry in the Isle of Man TT. It was originally delivered to Steve Wynne of Sports Motorcycles, a key figure in Mike Hailwood’s TT success — via Bike EXIF

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

Board & Vellum designed this impressive backyard shed in Seattle as a reading retreat for home owners who wanted a dedicated space for relaxing. Think of it like a reading nook, only in the yard, bigger, and with plumbing. The shed welcomes visitors with an all-glass enclosure that faces the patio and fire pit. This micro sun room flows into a tiny living space whose walls are flanked with bookshelves and a daybed for stretching out with a good novel. The architects bill the stylish shed as a reading retreat, but it’s almost a full-fledged tiny home thanks to the full bathroom. There’s no kitchen, but there is a ladder that leads to a lofted bed in case you get sleepy from all that reading — via Curbed

This five-bedroom, 430 square metre property features a glorious main house, designed and built by American painter, architect, and furniture designer William Penhallow Henderson in 1922.

In 2010, the house received a thorough renovation that sought to maintain its masterful craftsmanship. That process involved installing handmade replica tiles, new windows, as well as restoring the original adobe. Meanwhile, the kitchen is a surprising dash of modern style and convenience. 551-555 Camino Del Monte Sol is now listed for $3.8 million — via Curbed

Essentially MB&F’s take on a Newton’s cradle or one of those head-bobbing drinking birds, the brand’s latest collaboration with L’Epe?e 1839 is a cross between a tank and a transformer. Dubbed Grant, with three functional, tank-style treads and a large clock face forming a shield on its back, this desk-borne automaton can sit upright, crouch, or lay flat, allowing a specific orientation of not only the actual clock display (again, on Grant’s shield), but also the domed cover that allows a view of the manufacture movement’s balance and many other elements of the overall timekeeping mechanism, which is comprised of some 268 components. Available with blue, black, or nickel accents, each colour version is limited to 50 units and the Grant’s desktop protection will cost you CHF 22,000 — via Hodinkee

In 1959, Jackie Gleason had a home built in Cortland Manor, New York, that resembled a flying saucer. It was completely round, and everything in it was round as well: the counters, bar, fireplace, staircase, even the shower doors curved along with the building. That house, dubbed Mother Ship, along with a guest house (also round) called Spaceship, and a third house that isn’t round, on eight acres is now for sale — via Neatorama

The Connecticut residence of Paul Rand, the late art director and graphic designer best known for iconic logo designs for IBM, UPS, ABC, and more, has just hit the market and it’s a bona fide modernist treat. Designed in 1951 by Rand and his first wife, Ann (who studied with Mies van der Rohe at Illinois Institute of Technology), and completed in 1953, the three-bedroom house shows influences from Mies as well as Marcel Breuer. Like several Breuer creations to hit the market in New England recently, the Rand House is an efficient composition of glass and fieldstone nestled in extensive woodlands — almost eight acres in this case. 87 Good Hill Road is asking $895,000 — via Curbed

Plenty of houses embrace the concept of indoor-outdoor living, but this house in Kerala, India, is one of the best examples. Lijo Reny Architects designed the 636 square metre home to blend with nature by creating open spaces that blur the lines between inside and outside and bringing in tons of greenery — via Curbed

Cheetahs Chase Balls Flung by Cheetahpult / Oregon Zoo

A custom-made contraption has catapulted the Oregon Zoo’s cheetahs toward a new level of fitness. Dubbed the cheetahpult, it’s an 2.4 metre wooden device that flings a ball far enough for a cheetah — the fastest land animal on earth — to chase. After more conventional ball launchers fell short, the cheetahpult was designed and built by staff members with the zoo’s speediest residents in mind — via Youtube

This house dates back to 1962 and was designed by Eddie Parker, who was a protege of Bruce Goff, with this design taking inspiration from the latter. Called the Round House, the 540 square metre design is shaped like a half-circle for the most part and incorporates elements of stone, wood and glass alongside onyx terrazzo and brass inlaid concrete floors.

The Ball Fireman Night Train III utilises a total of 61 tritium tubes — one each for the three hands, plus 58 others arrayed around the dial — for both the 40mm and 43mm sizes. The result is a watch with a look that is very typical of Ball that has excellent night legibility. And thanks to the fact that the legibility comes from self-illuminating tritium, it remains bright through the night — via Hodinkee

Ming is introducing two limited edition versions of its Sellita-based GMT. The more interesting of the new limited editions is 17.03 Ultra Blue, which comes with a stunning grade 2 titanium case blued by hand by Ming Thein himself. Because each of these 25 pieces is blued by hand, no two are exactly the same, and will evince varying shades of purple, cyan, and dark blue. The second limited edition, of which 125 will be made, is the Ming 17.03 Blue. With its standard grade 2 titanium case, it’s decidedly less Ultra than the other new limited edition, but there is an option for a titanium quick-release bracelet — via Hodinkee

This is an ingenious and award winning property — the London Architecture Awards’ House of the Year in 2013 in regard to the latter point and indeed the first one, as the way this house works is perhaps why it got the top prize. It is also a house of contrast, with a curvy, industrial steel exterior working its way around and under and even above a 19th century railway viaduct, hinting at nothing but more of the same industrial finish within. It is on the market for £1,085,000 if you want something just a little different from the norm — via WowHaus
