We have just received delivery of a stunning and limited edition from Adidas Watches; the Adidas Limited Edition Newburgh ADH9044 Watch! It is in the classic Newburgh style but is made of solid titanium and is coated with a Black Ion plated finish to give it a matte effect on the strap, case and bezel. You will find a plethora of features on this watch including Adidas’ efficient three-hand movement, date window and sub-dial chronograph all being powered by a powerful Quartz watch movement. The case itself features a screw down crown and pushers to activate the chronograph making the watch water resistant to an eye watering 200 metres; an invaluable asset should you be buying this for more than just it’s aesthetic prowess! An additional ‘pusher’ has been added at the 7 o’clock position which activates the bright LED backlight meaning that you can read the time even in the dark or at night…even underwater. A rotating bezel is the perfect way to complete this stunning model from Adidas Watches and it allows you to time yourself or use the watch as a stopwatch should you choose to.
Only 500 of these watches have been made and they are all numbered on the casing meaning that you will have a truly unique timepiece to use as an all day item or just a striking evening piece.

To celebrate the launch of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, Diesel Watches have released the Diesel Limited Edition DZWB0001 Batman Watch…and my word what a piece of engineering and styling genius it has turned out to be! It has been designed around the original Batmobile; drawing inspiration from the bold lines, rugged edges and the down-right cool factor that is associated with it. You only have to look at the strap and the tank-like treads embossed in it to see why this has become so popular with men around the world; it oozes masculinity and completely embodies what has now become the ‘new-age’ Batman.
A far cry from the original Batman series released in 1966, the Christian Bale Batman of today is the epitome of cool and with the Diesel Limited Edition DZWB0001 Batman Watch you too can feel like the caped crusader…even if it is only for a little while!

The 2012/13 Autumn/Winter season is going to be rife with new releases from many different brands, however one collection has caught the eye of many for it’s ingenious and ground breaking production process – the Chanel Tweed and Carbon Fibre Collections!
Let’s take a look at Tweed; rubber is injected at high temperatures with real tweed fabric and the temples’ steel core wire is placed in the mould on the tweed fabric. The resulting temples are thinner, lighter and more easily adjustable than acetate temples. No glue is used and the fabric maintains its original aspect and touch which means that the tweed threads are actually visible on the arms. This highly precise process incorporating Tweed is exclusive to Chanel Sunglasses and the signatures are engraved in the mould to guarantee a flawlessly perfect design.
Chanel’s Carbon Fibre Collection is a revolution in eyewear technology, embracing the inherent durability of Carbon Fibre with the beautiful styling and lines of Chanel Sunglasses. They are available in three styles; a classic teardrop shaped lens, a retro squared off lens effect and a fantastically out there circular sunglass!
Check out examples from below and get your own right here at Shade Station.

The Oakley Frogskins are synonymous with the stone cold cool of the classic 80’s style, however with the new Acid range, it is safe to say that Oakley have kicked the boat out a bit. Due to their exclusive nature; the new Acid Tortoise Frogskins from Oakley are amongst the most sought after sunglasses for this summer! You only have to look at these limited edition ‘funglasses’ to see why they are so popular; the striking colour scheme, the classic retro shape and most importantly the 21st Century Oakley eyewear technology. They are positively brimming with spec, designed to ensure the user is comfortable, their eyes are protected from harmful UV rays and they look cool whilst wearing them.
Oakley Sunglasses lenses are completely UVA, UVB and UVC protective, meaning that even if the lenses get scratched your eyes will not be harmed. This is due to the plutonite material that the lenses are made from, it’s patented material make-up means that it is unlike any other lens material in the world. Oakley’s XYZ Optic technology means that light is never refracted through the lens and therefore your eyes will not strain to see through the lenses either. Easy to see then why people choose Oakley Frogskins over similar styles.
The new Acid range is available in five different colours with different lenses in each – all are available to view in our Oakley Frogksins section. A great feature of the new Acid Frogskins is that all of the colours have an Iridium coating on the lenses; this is the mirrored finish that really takes them from regular styles to absolute show stoppers! The inventive finishes such as Emerald Iridium, Ruby Iridium and the Fire Iridium mean that the majority of light is refelected away from the lenses, making vision clearer, sharper and more comfortable for the user.
Oakley have made this a very limited edition range and once the stock is gone…it’s gone. This is your chance to own a piece of sunglass history; whether you are an avid Oakley collector or someone who just wants a statement piece for this summer. Either way, the Oakley Acid Frogskins are available from us here at Shade Station and are not to be missed!

It has been 40 years since Adidas first released a the Trefoil, the legendary three leafed logo that has become a symbol for quality across all of their products. In 1972, Adidas spawned the idea that all of their products must brim with creativity, originality and of course authenticity…and the Trefoil is the way they showed this. From then on, Adidas watches and the brand as a whole has grown and grown until it has now become a goliath in the world of fashion and sport alike; adorning the tracksuits, football shirts and watches of everyone from Kevin Pietersen to David Beckham. To celebrate this remarkable milestone in the brand’s history, they are releasing a limited-edition watch; a numbered series of only 500 watches and you can get yours right here at Shade Station.
Quality. If you buy a ‘quality’ watch, you expect a certain degree of excellency that can only be seen on the likes of Adidas products. The ADH9040 is a celebration of just how good a watch can be and Adidas have cut no corners! Complete with a polished finish and rotating bezel, the watch features a 50mm case constructed entirely of solid steel and finished with gold-tone plating. The production process is exceptionally unique for a watch like this also. Each dial has the Trefoil logo hydraulically stamped onto it and a plaque with the watch’s exclusive number emblazoned on it. Of course, this is still a practical watch for anyone in any walk of life. The watch is 50 metres water resistant, meaning it can be used in the pool too. Looking at all of this, I think it is safe to say that when you order this watch, you will be receiving a watch superior to others around it, a watch with style, class and importantly originality.
Even with all of this being said, the cherry on top of the cake is that only 50 of the 500 watches being made are being sold in the UK…and we are guaranteed to have stock of this item! Of course, the limited availability of the ADH9040 does mean that when the stock is gone; its gone, which is why we have made it available for pre-order now. Why not get your own piece of history? A watch that represents style, class and quality. A watch that you can look at and know that when you see the Trefoil, you are joining the ranks of elite sportsmen and women in honouring the values and morals set down by Adidas watches: quality and originality for all.

Summertime and bright colours go together like ’strawberries and cream’ or ‘a day at the races and champagne’. One without the other just ain’t so. If you look to the catwalk for inspiration you’ll see this year’s Spring/Summer ‘09 collections are all about pastels and eye-popping colours. Orange and purple are particular popular colours and are set to be big news in the coming months. Designers are on a mission to brighten the economy and our mood with lively hues and plenty of eye-pleasing, summer teasing colours and styles.
For colour inspiration for your wrist, look no further than LTD Watches. These limited edition beauties come in bright poster paint colours that will delight all those with a sunny disposition and a penchant for following seasonal trends. At spectacularly pocket friendly prices, LTD wristwear offers a universal design in a breadth of different colours. Yellow, baby pink and acid green are great choices for those who wish to stand out from the crowd and embrace all things colourful, whilst those who prefer a slightly more subtle approach to their wristwear may enjoy an LTD watch in white, royal blue or black, with perhaps a different hued face. Whatever your preference try to avoid the matchy matchy look that Paris Hilton seems to favour so much!
Colourful watches can add real appeal to an outfit. One idea is to match the colour of your watch face to a particular colour you are wearing to bring the whole ensemble together. Or perhaps opt for contrasting colours to set both your outfit and your wrist off to great effect. Yellow and Purple are fabulous contrasting colours and as such a yellow LTD Watch would add extra oomph to any purple clothing you are wearing. Finally for the brave fashionista’s amongst you, clashing hues can be very fashion-forward and style savvy, a pink LTD watch with a red belt for instance or red skinny jeans would be a great choice and mark you out as a real trend-setter.
Whatever the weather this summer, opt for a brightly coloured LTD Watch to supercharge your wrist with a vibrant hue and lift your mood!
