Cool Kit April 2018

Beautiful posters, sharp timepieces, and even fine machined paddles for your dual-clutch shifters highlight the style that is available in this month's Cool Kit.

1 - PRODUCT OF THE MONTH: Thomas Sabo Watch ($549 from
It looks cool, but with a name like Rebel at Heart, this stainless steel timepiece better live up to its reputation. The minimalist design and deep-blue sunray dial back up the bold claim. 

2 - Crayon to CAD book ($120 from
Australian automotive designer, Paul Beranger, taps into a lifetime of experience to track the history of car design in Oz. The 336-page hardback book would look great on any coffee table.

3 - Racingling Silver DSG Paddles ($349 from
Sick of plastic? Harding Performance has what you’re looking for with its CNC-machined billet aluminium paddles for Golf GTI/R and Polo. Extending the paddle size makes them easier to use.

4 - Honda Type R vest ($121 from
To celebrate claiming MOTOR Performance Car of the Year 2018, Honda has released a range of merchandise, including this puffer vest – which will come in handy on a chilly road trip.

5 - Porsche 959 poster ($60 from
London-based digital production studio INK, as a part of its plainbody series, has created a poster featuring the classic Dakar Rally Porsche 959. We need one on our office wall, now.

6 - RADO HyperChrome Captain Cook ($3175 from
RADO’s HyperChrome Captain Cook range pays homage in name and design to a watch made by the company in 1962. It’s also water resistant to 200m and has a fabric bracelet.

7 - Raidillon gloves ($400 from
”These elegant and comfortable gloves, made of soft cognac-coloured lambskin, suit perfectly a Gentleman Driver’s lifestyle”... If you’re going to treat yourself, do it well.
