Be it the Roswell Incident of New Mexico in July 1947, the Lubbock Lights of Texas in August 1951, or the dozens of others that took place between June and August over the years, it’s a statistical fact that UFO sightings are notably higher during the summer months than they are the rest of the year. This trend has created an association between aliens and this time of year, crossing over to the likes of cinema as well, with summer blockbusters such as E.T. and Men In Black. Either people are just outside more during these months or the aliens just like to visit more when the weather’s nice. Whatever the reason, this EDC layout has mostly green and black colorways to show some love to the little green men people love spotting in our summer skies.

TAG Heuer Monaco Special Edition
While Steve McQueen only dealt with off-worlders once in his 1958 hit The Blob, he was famous for wearing a TAG Heuer Monaco from time to time. Limited to just 500 pieces, this Special Edition version in honor of the Monaco Grand Prix, with a green dial and black alligator leather strap, is a hard one to forget. The iconic 39mm square case houses an in-house Calibre HEUER02 automatic chronograph movement, which can be shown via the exhibition caseback.
