Tsuyosa Small Seconds

This one’s equally at home at elegant, stylish events or casual hangouts. Citizen’s second-generation Tsuyosa adds meaningful design touches like a subtly and beautifully textured dial in green/copper (and also available in gray or blue) and a small sub-dial for running seconds at 6 o’clock. Of course, the watch can still be automatically and manually wound. The Tsuyosa remains wearable at 40mm, and Citizen has refined its case and bracelet construction to result in a more comfortable fit and a more meticulously-finished product. Up top, a sapphire crystal keeps things durable, while 50 meters of water resistance rounds out what is a perfect watch for both dressy and casual occasions.

G-Shock Rose Gold Series

The G-Shock 2100 series has become Casio’s most famous modern reference. Sometimes nicknamed the “CasiOak”, it has become the standard template on which G-Shock can iterate via materials, colors, and more. The Rose Gold series is a particularly cool collection – it not only pairs a sunburst rose gold dial with matching case and bracelet but also slims down the case to make it even more universally wearable. The GMAS2100MD-4A includes all the classic bells and whistles we’d expect from a 2100, including a world timer, stopwatch, alarms, and automatic calendar. Just like moms everywhere, this watch can do it all.

Paulin Modul

The Paulin Modul is for the moms that like being in the know, the ones who enjoy having something few people know about. Its modestly-sized 35mm brushed steel case contrasts with what is undoubtedly the star of the show: the dial. The bright pink hue contrasts nicely with subtle blue accents on the hour markers and bold red seconds hand. Indeed, there’s enough color here to be interesting without becoming overpowering. Paulin’s celebrated partnership with local artists really shows as wearers enjoy the Modul’s distinct typography and language of design, and every element – from the shape of the hands to the layout of the dial – shows a thoughtful eye for aesthetics. This is certainly a watch that will find its way on your wrist more often than not.

Tactile Turn Side Click Standard Pen

Let’s get even more practical to close this out. Tactile Turn’s Side Click Standard Pen provides a truly satisfying, tactile (hah) writing experience. Thanks to its metal components – all machined in The Lone Star State, no less – this pen’s click mechanism is enormously enjoyable and, dare we say, even a little addicting? The pen takes Pilot G2 refills but will work with tons of other cartridges. It’s available in Bronze, Copper, and Titanium so you can find one that best matches your vibe.

Buttero Leather Watch Roll

A quality watch roll is an integral part of a collection, and nobody does it better than Convoy Co with their Buttero Leather Watch Roll. Fashioned from Italian vegetable-tanned Buttero leather and bolstered with a waterproof suede lining, this roll can fit up to four watches (each with their own leather rest bracelet protectors). Each pocket opening is triple-stitched, and the edges are hand-burnished for a beautiful smooth finish. The rolls are available in Sand, Terracota, and Umber, and all three would make fantastic accessories to any watch collection.

Ace Nibbler

Giant Mouse's Ace Nibbler is, when it comes to pocket knives, aces. Featuring a 2-in Vanadis N690 steel blade, this knife takes its inspiration from Scandinavian roots and simply works. Fully open, it is only 4.7" long and under 2 ounces light. The aforementioned blade is opened via a thumb whole with ball bearing mounts, which make operation easy and smooth. Another feature is a reversible wire clip that allows the user to carry the Nibbler in either pocket. And at under $100, there's little to complain about with this nifty pocket knife.

As we are hosting our Windup Watch Fair in San Francisco, please be advised that all orders placed between April 30th (after 2 pm EST) to May 6th will ship starting May 7th.
