This week, we’ve supersized our Editor’s Picks. We’ve rolled out two huge new SUVs, uncorked a truly monumental bottle of rosé and even slipped on a pair of sizeable, chunky-soled boots from Edward Green.
Elsewhere, we’ve uncovered products to bulk you up — including a new interactive workout mirror and some soothing CBD post-exercise balm. And, for good tasty measure, we’ve even beefed up your barbecuing kit with some meaty new tools from British brand Blenheim Forge. So big up, stand out and read on; this is what we want this week…

Copper-bottomed: Breitling Premier B25 Datora 42
It’s the copper dial that does it for us. Breitling’s latest Premier pays homage to three generations of inventors – Léon, Gaston & Willy Breitling — and brings the timeless elegance of the brand’s signature chronograph back to life. That means grooves on the case sides, vintage-inspired hands and that rich, sumptuously coloured dial.

Trail blazer: 2023 Hummer EV SUV
‘The next all-electric supertruck’. That’s how Hummer describes its bulky, battery-powered new SUV. And it’s not far off. With a range of over 300 miles, up to 830 horsepower and the brand’s signature ‘Super Cruise’ hands-free driving feature, it really is a car that can do it all. Our favourite feature? ‘Crabwalk’ capability — it can drive diagonally.

Done with mirrors: VAHA X Interactive Home Mirror
Later this month, the VAHA interactive home mirror will finally launch in Britain. We can’t wait — as we’re in dire need of that final burst of summer fitness motivation. Thankfully, this futuristic, standalone mirror delivers. With a 43-inch touchscreen hidden below its shiny surface, the VAHA X uses smart sensor tracking, guided training and (perhaps most importantly) Spotify compatibility to keep you stimulated and driven.

Step out: Edward Green Newmarket Chelsea Boots
These freshly-soled ‘Newmarket’ boots from heritage shoemaker Edward Green have bulked up the iconic Chelsea style for spring. The leather is a waxy Delapré from the Rhine Valley. The soles are rugged, rubber and made by Ridgeway. And the entire heavy-duty package is storm-welted together for a chunky look and eye-catching comfort.

Green with envy: Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph
We can’t get enough of Audemars Piguet’s new fixation with the colour green. A few weeks ago, we featured the smoky emerald dial of the brand’s Royal Oak Jumbo Extra-Thin, and this week it’s the flying tourbillon, green-Tapisseried turn of this striking Selfwinding Chronograph. Highly symmetrical and with an 18-carat yellow gold case, it’s a vibrant, viridescent treat.
