Nomad Titanium Watch Band

Read More

Nomad makes what is probably the best Apple Watch band on the market. Not only is it light (cuz, titanium), but it’s also comfortable as unlike many other apple bracelets, it does not pinch the hairs off your wrist. Only negative? It’s expensive…

BUT, you can now get a pretty decent discount using the code SUMMER30 at checkout. If you are a power user, there is value here.

Vaer D5

Covet a Rolex Milsub, but can’t rationalize the coin? Enter the Vaer D5 – a sort of homage to the mil spec Rolex that is assembled in the USA with good materials and a Miyota 9039 movement. Best part? It only runs $550… Plus, they are offering a 10% discount today.

The Seiko Revival

Read More

Seiko just released two new watches in their Prospex line – one from 1965 and the other from 1970. Both kick serious ass. No brainer if you need an EDC watch.

Garmin Descent MK2

Read More

It’s a dive computer that doubles as a smart watch… And really, it’s probably the first complete dive computer that you can wear out of the water and not look like a total weirdo. In fact, it’s actually pretty rad looking… AND, it’s available in a 43mm size – certainly larger than I care to wear everyday, but not so large I couldn’t manage it.

Zodiac Super Sea Wolf Aquamarine Dream

Read More

This is a collaboration between Zodiac and aBlogToWatch. It’s based on the Super Sea Wolf, so it’s perfectly sized and features a decent Swiss movement. But most obviously, it has a really dope Caribbean inspired color way. I dig it.

Rebel Pilot

I am not a Star Wars nerd. I mean, I like the movies as much as the next guy, but I don’t go all bat shit with it. I am, however, a watch nerd and this digital Citizen is straight up RAD.

Q Timex 38mm

Read More

This new Timex re-issue speaks to me man… I totally dig the pink and black color-way, the case size is perfect, and the expansion band just screams of the golden era… I don’t typically dig on quartz watches, but I would make an exception for this one.

Speedmaster Straps

Read More

Omega recently released some new straps for the Speedmaster that pay honor to the watch’s NASA heritage… and they are dope as hell.
