This week’s WSG is brought to you by Jack Mason and their all-new Strat-o-timer GMT. The Jack Mason Strat-o-timer GMT marks a turning point in the brand, where product design and industry experience culminate to embark on a new journey that’s taking them to greater heights. Housing the much anticipated Miyota 9075 automatic GMT movement, the Strat-o-timer was designed to the highest of standards and checks off every box from a quality and specification standpoint that any enthusiast would crave. They didn’t simply stop there, however. With a vision of becoming a legacy brand in their home state of Texas, the Strat-o-timer will be their first watch of many to come that will be assembled, and the movement regulated, in the USA.

The Strat-o-timer GMT is currently available by Jack Mason


The Tensaw: A Handsome Waxed Canvas Jacket Made In The USA

If you’re in the market for a waxed canvas jacket that isn’t a Barbour, then you might want to give the Tensaw Jacket from Alabama based outdoor-clothier, Tom Beckbe, a look. The Tensaw Jacket is cut from that classic field jacket silhouette, tastefully blending utilitarian aesthetic with casual outdoor-wear. The outer shell is constructed out of a durable 8 oz waxed shelter cloth that’s set to patina uniquely to the wearer while the inner lining adds a pop of color inspired by Alabama red clay. There’s no shortage of pockets with the Tensaw Jacket. There are two chest hand warmer pockets to keep your hands toasty in colder weather. Two sizeable front bellow pockets sit at the waist, provide ample storage and also conceal two smaller hand warmer pockets. The Tensaw Jacket is formed in a way that allows for comfort and full range of motion while maintaining a tailored aesthetic. And this might be icing on the cake for some – the Tensaw Jacket is made in the USA.

The Leica M6 Rangefinder Gets A New Lease On Life

Via Leica

There’s no mistaking a Leica when you see one. They’re beautifully designed and if you’ve ever had the chance to take a photo or two with a Leica, then you’ll understand what the hype is all about. Earlier this year, they released the lighter and faster digital M11. Riding the wave of that successful release, Leica has announced the revival of their legendary M6 Rangefinder film camera. Leica introduced the M6 Rangefinder in 1984 and remained in production until 2002. Within that time, the M6 evolved into three different models including the M6J, M6 0.85, and the M6 TTL. The 2022 M6 Rangefinder stays true to form in build as its predecessors aside from the redesigned top cover fashioned out of solid brass that’s coated with a scratch-resistant black lacquer. On the inside, the new M6 houses an optimized Leica M rangefinder with a 0.72x magnification, low-battery indicator and a light meter that displays correct exposure. The new Leica M6 Rangefinder film camera is slated to release online and at Lecia boutiques worldwide on November 3rd with a price tag of $5,295.

Fastest Car Acceleration Record Gets Broken And It’s Not By What Or Who You Think


The average acceleration time from 0 to 60 mph in a Formula 1 race car is roughly about 2.6 seconds. The record for fastest car acceleration, which was recently broken, was an electric vehicle that went from 0 to 62 mph in 1.461 seconds. You read that right, an electric vehicle. But what’s even more surprising is that the record belongs to a bunch of students from the University of Stuttgart or also known as the GreenTeam. This isn’t the first time the GreenTeam has held the record. They broke the acceleration record back in 2012 with a time of 2.681 seconds before the record changed hands multiple times. According to the students, the peak acceleration during their record breaking drive is roughly equivalent to the force experienced by astronauts while re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere. Mind blowing.

A Riley Lynx With Grand Prix Provenance

Automotive media house Hagerty features a series entitled Barn Find Hunter where author and historian Tom Cotter travels around the world unearthing vintage gems. Cotter has spent most of his life hunting down cars in the most unexpected places. It’s always a treat to see what car he finds next, but it’s always the story that keeps us there and adds a whole new layer of meaning to the vehicle. In the most recent episode of Barn Find Hunter, Cotter uncovers a wide range of cars including a 1982 Mercedes 380SL Roadster, an Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite sporting a 1275cc engine and a couple of Rileys. One Riley in particular actually raced in the 1972 Singapore Grand Prix by the previous owner when she was 17 years old. Check out the entire episode of Barn Find Hunter above.
