Panerai’s Submersible collection draws inspiration from the history of the brand while looking forward to the future. That continued desire to innovate keeps the line fresh, as evidenced by the latest addition, the Submersible Verde Militare. This online exclusive is limited to just 500 pieces worldwide and will never be duplicated by the luxury watch manufacturer. It is powered by the new P.900 automatic mechanical caliber that offers a high degree of accuracy and precision and was designed and developed at Panerai’s Manufacture in Neuchâtel. It also packs three days of power reserve into a 42mm brushed stainless steel case. The Verde Militare is the first in Panerai’s Submersible Collection to have a green dial and is finished with a rubber strap in a matching military green strap with a trapezoid buckle. Each of these limited watches is supplied with an additional strap, black Sportech with Velcro closures and a titanium loop buckle. Like all Panerai Submersibles, this version is a professional divers watch, water-resistant to 300 meters and equipped with a uni-directional bezel.

Bollinger Motors made waves when it introduced its B1 and B2 trucks. Built on an all-aluminum chassis with an electric motor at each axle and utilitarian styling and features that could make vintage Land Rovers blush, they’re making the slow march toward reality. Both the B1 and B2 prototypes are four-doors, built off the same platform with the same specs – 120 kWh batteries and 614 horsepower on tap from the dual motors. This is good for a top speed of 100 MPH and a range of around 200 miles for both trucks. The B-trucks have 15 inches of ground clearance, can haul over 5,000 pounds, and can tow 7,500 pounds, meaning the power is there for professional users. Bollinger hopes to have the B1 and B2 in production next year, with orders and deliveries starting then.
Coming all the way from Medellin, Colombia, this 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser is a unique truck. Its original engine was swapped for a 4.5-liter inline-six and five-speed manual transmission from a 2001 Land Cruiser, along with the axles, differentials, brake system, and power steering. That brings this 37-year-old SUV into the modern era. Add to that a heavy-duty Old Man Emu suspension kit and host of creature comforts, and this is a Land Cruiser you’ll want to drive. The seller added a fiberglass top, ICON aluminum mirrors, and a roof rack along with a fresh coat of beige paint. An interior roll bar replaces the military-style jump seats in the rear, and an audio system by JL Audio has been installed. Along with all the kit already there, this FJ43 also comes with enough spare parts to keep you running into the foreseeable future.
