Treat Yourself!: Wind Vintage Watches

In our third batch of vintage watches from Wind Vintage, we've received a great assortment of vintage Constellation and  Seamaster models from Omega.  Like this OMEGA Seamaster Calendar 2627-1. It's an awesome unpolished example. The case and lugs are very beefy and the watch wears awesome on the wrist. The case measures 35mm in diameter (42.5mm lug-to-lug). The watch features an automatic-bumper movement (the calibre 353) which is acts as a fun reminder while wearing. Omega vintage watches can be rare and hard to find. Certain models of Omega watches, such as the Speedmaster and Seamaster, are highly sought after by collectors and can command high prices, so pick one up before they’re all gone!

Upgrade Your Kit: The James Brand Elko Knife (Black)

One of the biggest problems with carrying a pocket knife is that many people perceive them to be threatening. Even if you’re just excited to open up that new watch package, whipping out a huge blade tends to shake people up. Thankfully, The James Brand has a solution to that. The Elko is a small, minimal, and modern knife that’ll fly under the radar in the coin pocket of your jeans or affixed to your keyring. Despite its small size, the Elko knife is also equipped with a few other cool features, such as a bottle opener, a screwdriver, and a pry bar. The blade of the knife is made of high-quality stainless steel and is sharp enough to handle most everyday cutting tasks. The handle of the knife is made of durable anodized aluminum and comes in a variety of colors to suit your personal style.

When You Have Too Many Watches: Moody Tools Screwdriver Set 

Every watch owner / collector needs a good set of slotted screwdrivers for changing straps, sizing bracelets and a host of other tasks. We're excited to offer this great set of 6 American-made slotted drivers by Moody Tools of Rhode Island. Each driver is made of steel with knurling texture and measures 4" long. They all feature a hex-shaped swiveltop® cap that allows the driver to move in the hand with ease, and prevents it from rolling off of a work surface. And not just for watches! The set includes screwdrivers in a range of sizes, from 0.6mm to 3.0mm, which makes it ideal for precision work such as electronics, eyeglasses, and small appliances.


Deal of the Week: Roadster Strap 

Our own version of the ever-stylish leather rally strap, the Roadster features a unique silhouette and profile, giving it an aggressive look while making it extra comfortable on the wrist. The design features an overall 4mm taper, but done so in steps, creating a wider section by the lugs to stand up to robust sports watches, followed by a sharp step down, thinning out under the wrist. The top section features a series of perforations to give it the distinctive rally-look. These rally style straps are inspired by the racing world and feature perforations, stitching, and contrasting colors that give them a sporty and dynamic appearance for your favorite watch.
