Watches, Stories, and Gear: A Real Spy Watch from the Cold War (Sorry 007), an Airport Worthy of a Long Layover, and More

For Your Eyes Only: The Secret Microphone Wristwatch Worn by Cold War Spies

This week, the top watch story was no doubt the introduction of the new Bond watch, a $9,200 limited edition Seamaster that will be worn by 007 in the upcoming No Time to Die. With that in mind, we thought we?d lead off this week?s ?Watches, Stories, and Gear? with a story from our archives about some real spy watches. These ?watches? can?t actually tell you the time, but they look the part, and feature recording capabilities that were at the heart of mid-century spycraft.

My 27 Hour Vacation in Singapore’s Changi Airport

4 Ways a New Justice Department Decision May Radically Reshape Moviegoing

The movie business is changing dramatically right before our eyes. The competition among streaming services is arguably more important to the industry than week to week box office numbers, and the way we consume films seems to shift further and further from old-school movie theaters every year. This Polygon piece details the ways in which the Justice Department?s decision to undo the Paramount Decree of 1949, which kept the big movie studios out of the theater business, could change our movie going experience to an even greater degree. What happens, for example, when Disney owns the multiplex down the street" This is a must read for anyone who still enjoys being entertained while sitting in the dark with a group of strangers, with the smell of popcorn in the...
