On the Cutting Edge

The good life in fashion and toys

Audi’s 2014 R8 turns heads with its refined exterior and sculpted grille. The all-new V10 boasts a seven-speed transmission and goes from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 3.3 seconds. Interior seats are available in diamond-stitched leather. From $114,900 for V8 and $151,200 for V10.

Inspired by vintage dive watches and iconic sports cars, the Swiss-made Skywatch combines precision movement with hip style. Resistant in depths up to 100 meters, the watches are available with 44mm or 38mm cases and straps in premium silicone or Italian sailcloth. $295.

The JBL Pulse speaker by Harman International livens up any party with an LED light show to accompany the music. The Pulse streams music wirelessly via Bluetooth from any portable device; a rechargeable lithium-ion battery keeps the high-fidelity sound and light show going for five-hour sets. $199.

The Atlas pendant and rings by Tiffany combine 18-karat white gold with diamonds for a modern but delicate look. Pendant, $1,850; small ring, $3,000; wide ring, $3,500.
