Combining one key modern component with a Walkman-inspired design, NINM Lab’s It’s OK cassette player updates this once-beloved category. This vintage-inspired 1980s design mimics the original personal cassette players of that era. Its iconic, transparent case allows you to watch cassette tapes play within it— and its Bluetooth 5.0 technology means you can play cassettes through its conventional 3.5mm audio jack for wired headphones or through any Bluetooth® enabled headset or speaker, including those with noise cancellation options. A clip for attaching it to your clothes or bag, 1980s-style, and a transparent cover design lets you watch as the wheels turn. ninmlab.com/its-ok
With its round-but-not-round aesthetics, Bulgari’s Octo Roma watch combines Roman architectural heritage, Swiss watchmaking savoir faire, and Italian flair. This striking Papillon Tourbillon places the mechanical marvel in the middle of the dial, creating a hands-free design. To read the time, an hour window is at 12 o’clock, while the minutes are measured on a glowing green semi-circle panel at the bottom. The Calibre BVL 348 movement peeks through the skeletonized dial and is housed in a 44mm case with a black DLC coating. Its design combines angles, curves, and a rounded octagonal shapeblack, along with a strap with green stitching to complete the look. bulgari.com
The 1997-98 Chicago Bulls capped off an epic dynasty that saw them win six NBA titles during the decade. Coach Phil Jackson began their final season together by giving the team’s playbooks the title “The Last Dance,” which would also become the name of last year’s celebrated sports documentary. This unique auction gives fans an opportunity to own a copy of the playbook, donated from former Bull Jason Caffey. In addition to the 27-page doc, the auction lot includes a team-issued travel schedule, a numbered and a commemorative coin issued after the Bulls 72-win 1995-96 season. The winning bidder also receives 8 unused tickets and a laminated guest pass from Game 6 of the 1996 NBA Finals, and a booklet of Bulls team issued 1997 Playoff tickets.
