The Most Coveted WWII-Era Watch Is Easier to Get Than You'd Think

All products featured on GQ are independently selected by our editors. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission. Like the best superheroes, the greatest vintage watches are usually the ones with the most interesting origin stories. Unfortunately, the better the story, the more people you’ll be competing against to score your grail. (See: the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, designed by the late great Gerald Genta and considered the first high-end steel sports watch, or the Rolex “Comex” Submariner, which was field-tested by French scuba divers in the ‘70s.) In the case of the Vaer A12 Dirty Dozen, however, you can add a true superhero watch to your wrist as easily as ordering a new pair of swim trunks—and at a significant discount to the original.

The Venom: Let There Be Carnage Trailer Is Extremely Weird and Wonderful

There's not a lot of room for weird in the rigorously managed world of comic book movies. The movies that usually get that tag—Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: Ragnarok—tend to be pretty tame. But you know what's weird? Venom is weird. And it worked! Despite… Despite early trailers selling it as a brooding dark piece, the first Venom is, frankly, bonkers—a weirdly silly and hilarious movie that turns one of Spider-Man’s most dangerous foes into a wisecracking misunderstood creature. What is typically a dark tale of possession quickly becomes a buddy comedy, with Tom Hardy giving a genuinely gonzo performance as both the straight man and the voice of the space monster inhabiting his body. I’m unable how something this off the rails went on to garner a staggering $213 million at the US box office, and 856 million around the world. Nevertheless, Venom was a bonafide hit for Sony, so, naturally, we’re getting a sequel.

A-Rod and J.Lo’s Dueling Birthday Yacht Trips

For the past week and change, Alex Rodriguez has been squeezing the proverbial juice out of his post-J.Lo life by partying on a European megayacht tour, ostensibly in honor of his 46th year on Earth. Much as perfectly symmetrical shapes occur in nature, A-Rod’s trip just so happens to be a perfect foil toLopez’s extended European yacht trip, on which she is celebrating her own birthday—with Ben Affleck, of course. Is this fate? Is it a carefully calculated tabloid war? Is it the season three finale of Succession? Here’s everything you need to know about the 2021 battle of A-Rod and J.Lo’s megayachts.

The Best Skate Shoes Are Made for Olympic—and Fit Pic—Greatness

The best skate shoes are made for more than landing a kick-flip. Skate style has long since infiltrated the highest realms of luxury fashion (remember when Vogue launched its own “Skate Week” in 2016?) and today, iconic skate shoes from the likes of Vans, Converse, and Adidas have become everyday wear for thousands of non-Thrasher subscribing customers. If the natty uniforms on display at the Olympics this year piqued your interest, consider this the opportune time to familiarize yourself with the best shoes skateboarding has to offer.

How to Get Luckier

Luck is everywhere. It's in a $20 bill dropping out of someone's pocket and into someone else's future. It's in that job offer—the one they gave to the other "finalist." It’s in that odd bounce of a ball. It’s in those moments when the universe unfurls just so—the clouds breaking when you reach the mountaintop, or the cars colliding as you exited the crosswalk, not as you entered it. It’s in the moments that we barely miss, whether we realize we missed them or not. It’s in certain people, we swear. Maybe it is in us today—or it was in us, once. It's an admission that we—or they—didn't deserve… something. Could be good. Could be bad. But it especially wasn’t deserved when it happened again.

Help! I Have Collab Fatigue

I recently found myself faced with a very 2021 problem. A minor issue given the state of things, but a problem nonetheless: Todd Snyder or Aimé Leon Dore? Not in the sense of picking my One True Brand, but something a little more prosaic: each had a New Balance collab coming out within a day of each other, and I couldn’t decide which one to get.

The Green Knight

The Green Knight, A24’s Arthurian medieval fantasy starring Dev Patel and directed by David Lowery, finally hit theaters last weekend after a spate of pandemic pushbacks. The film is worth the wait: the performances from Patel and co-stars Joel Edgerton, Alicia Vikander, and Barry Keoghan are great, Lowery outdid himself with the beautiful and often trippy imagery, and The Green Knight is scoring high among critics. But it’s also leaving audiences a little confused and more than a little overwhelmed, especially those who don’t know the King Arthur legends from top to bottom. The ending is especially vexing, with a fakeout, a montage/dream sequence and ambiguous final shot all rolled into one. Here’s a crash course to help explain things.

Anthony Veasna So died tragically at the age of 28 last December, eight months before the debut of his brilliant story collection Afterparties this week.

Candace Parker on Shaq, NBA 2k, Her New Podcast, and the “Bullshit” Politics of Team USA

Candace Parker isn’t slowing up yet. Her Chicago Sky are second in the WNBA Eastern Conference and she still flirts with a triple double on some nights, even at 35 years old. For a player who’s accomplished nearly everything in her sport—Parker has won two NCAA championships, a WNBA championship, finals MVP, regular season MVP twice and has two Olympic gold medals—she still yearns for more.

The High Jump Was the Olympics at Their Best—and Most Stylish

One of the most delightful displays of showmanship—and sportsmanship—in the Tokyo Olympics so far took place on Sunday, during the men’s high jump. Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar and Gianmarco Tamberi of Italy matched each other leap-for-leap all evening, until they both failed to clear 7 feet 10 inches after three tries. Their options were to enter a sudden-death jump-off—or to share the gold medal. After Barshim, wearing a cap featuring his personal logo, iconically asked for clarification—“Can we have two golds?”—Tamberi, sporting a covetable top knot and pair of personalized socks featuring his own face, leapt into his arms. However, what made the moment so electrifying wasn’t just the outcome, but the lead-up: watching two incredible athletes (who also happen to be close friends) not only jump their hearts out, but doing so in a manner that was downright swaggy.

Most of Your Workouts Should Be Easy. Here's Why

In August 2019, Ezra Feig was going to the gym four days a week to lift weights. After listening to former Navy SEAL and ultramarathoner David Goggins's memoir Can't Hurt Me, he was inspired to give running a try. By September he was all in—and registered for a February marathon. With five months, the 30-year-old had adequate time to train—but made the mistake of treating every single run in his training plan like it was a race. “I thought to myself, ‘If I’m not getting better every week pace-wise, then I’m not progressing,” he told GQ.

The Definitive Adidas Yeezy Ranking

Our calendar is now dotted with sneaker-themed holidays: Air Max Day now arrives as surely as spring blooms, SNKRS Day is right around the corner, and today is our very first Yeezy Day. Six years into Kanye West’s collaboration with Adidas, the rapper has created a formidable empire of shoes. The foundational models made good on Kanye’s promise that everyone who wanted Yeezys could get them, and turned the 350 V2 into a top-selling shoe rather than one reliant on scarcity and hype. In the meantime, he’s built out the Yeezy brand with weirdo sneakers—see the 450 and the Foam Runner— and basic footwear models like the slides. In honor of the very first Yeezy Day, we’ve put together the definitive ranking of Kanye’s best Yeezys for Adidas.

Welcome to the Biggest Fits of the Week, a roundup of the strongest, wildest, and simply biggest celebrity fits from across the globe. Over the weekend, Young Thug posted a photo to Instagram of a baby-pink Lamborghini in front of a tree flowering with pink (cherry?) blossoms.

It's a good reminder that Thug, already one of the most influential rappers on his generation, has also boldly pushed new ideas about style, gender, and self-expression.
