Victorinox Inox Carbon Watch
As if the Inox from Swiss Army knife kings Victorinox wasn’t indestructible enough (before launch it was tested by being run over by a tank, set on fire and put through a washing machine), the watch just received a major update. Now made from a resin composite material used to protect space shuttles as they re-enter atmospheres, it can also withstand temperatures of 1,260 degrees Celsius. The ideal holiday watch for a spot of space tourism.
Available at Victorinox, priced £795.

Available at Wrensilva, priced £2,466.
Bugatti Luxury Yacht

i.Con Smart Condom
By now, most TVs, watches and phones have been upgraded to ‘smart’ equivalents, so it’s finally time to bring the mod-cons to your coc… bedroom. i.Con’s smart-condom is less of a sheath, more a smart-ring that sits at the base of your member (so no, you don’t have to empty it out). From there, it uses nanosensors to monitor calories burnt, thrust speed and even the duration of your last sesh.
Available at British Condoms, priced £59.99.
Royal Doulton Season Decanter Set
Mad Men may be well and truly history, but we’re still longing for the days of Don Draper decanters. Just as well, then, that they’re making a comeback.

Available at Selfridges, priced £60.
