By Stephen Regenold When you pay $38 for a pair of socksthats $19 per foot, excluding taxthey had better be something special. The EXCelerator Socks from Injinji Footwear, which have individual toe slots and an overthecalf replica Gucci G-Watch 100G Ladie's watch compression fit, do indeed qualify as special.Putting them on is a task. The compression legging, made of acalfsqueezing nylon/Lycra fiber blend, is a tight fit. Add Injinjispatented fivetoesleeve technology, where each piggy has to bewiggled into place, and pulling on a pair is no fast feat.But once adjusted and on, the socks feel great.
The results from this will be used to determine the scope of a Wyler Genève prize, to be awarded for the 2010 edition, to recompense ecological endeavours by participants, organisers or anyone else involved in the Dakar. The official Dakar replica Gucci New Arrival Watch uses Wyler Genève's unique shock-absorbing case, in which the movement is sealed in a titanium container that is held in place in a carbon-fibre resin frame. The upper and lower plates are then fixed to this construction on sprung titanium screws, leaving the movement suspended inside. The use of tantalum for these plates leaves no doubt as to the exclusive nature of the Dakar watch.
Not only is tantalum rarer than gold, it is also more difficult to machine - especially for the complex Wyler Genève case - meaning that there is only ever a limited number of models available with the intriguing blue-grey sheen of this rare metal.DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating on the titanium screws and stainless-steel crown protector and chronograph pushers give the watch a stealthy look, with sand-coloured replica Gucci G-Watch 100G Ladie's detailing for the applied minute track, applied Arabic numerals, individually applied letters of the Wyler name and the chronograph counters offering a subtle contrast with the dark case and black dial. The sapphire crystal case back is laser engraved with "OFFICIAL WATCH OF THE DAKAR RALLY", the limited-edition number (/182) and the rally's cheich (headscarf) logo.
