This week, we kick things off with a top-of-the-line military watch from Ollech & Wajs and a subtle dive watch for dinosaur lovers. The Ace Nibbler and Leather Service Watch pouch are easy wins to upgrade your gear and accessories game. Lastly, there’s nothing like scoring a deal on a classic G-Shock 2100 on sale in the Windup Watch Shop now. Here is this week’s Roundup – enjoy!
The Treat Yourself category has always been about a higher-end choice from a watchmaker that is well worth it, and the P-101 is a shining example. Ollech & Wajs has combined both pilot and field watch elements into a single reference that is both wearable and durable. It’s water resistant to 300m, features the reliable 2824 movement, and functions as an excellent everyday tool watch that can handle anything you throw at it. Factor in Ollech & Waj’s history as being a favorite choice among the military and you have the epitome of a “treat yourself” tool watch.
The value-packed pick is all about going the distance with your dollars, and this week’s bundle is a special one. BOLDR and Nitecore have partnered to offer a unique dive watch with a T-Rex theme. This dive watch features a hidden T-Rex on the dial, as well as a footprint window on the caseback to reveal the NH35A automatic movement. What’s also included with this stealthed-out PVD diver is the TINI 2 torch. Rated to 200 lumens and with the ability to burst up to 500 lumens, this package is ideal for the explorer – or if you want to just charge up all that lume.
Don’t be fooled by its size: the Ace Nibbler from Giant Mouse packs a giant bite, indeed. The two-inch blade, designed for toughness, is made of N690 steel and satin finished, which also makes it incredibly resistant to corrosion. The blade can be deployed utilizing a thumb hole in conjunction with ball bearing mounts. At 4.7” long and under two ounces, this is an essential everyday carry that doesn’t take up much room at all. And at under $100, you won’t have to break the bank to snag one of your own.
A watch pouch is one of the most satisfying and universal gifts for a watch lover – either for someone in your life or for yourself. The Windup Watch Shop’s very own leather service pouch comes in Snuff Brown, Cinder Gray, Alpine Green, or Carbon Black, and is a must-have for travel and storage needs. It is made of high quality suede leather and includes a cushioned pillow.
The deal of the week highlights a current promotion or sale in the shop that you won’t want to miss. This week’s bargain is a certified classic: the G-Shock 2100. More recently nicknamed the “Casioak”, this model is everything you would expect in a G-Shock but in a package that is eminently wearable. Casio’s Carbon Guard core technology keeps the watch durable and light, while the laundry list of features – among them, a world timer, stopwatch, alarm – ensure that the 2100 carries on G-Shock’s tradition as the last word in utilitarian watchmaking.
