Treat Yourself! - 30th Anniversary Frogman 

There’s a lot to like about G-Shock as a brand, and one of the most exciting things is that there’s truly something for everyone within their lineup. The 30th Anniversary of the Frogman is a bold, bright red watch with titanium accents. With fully-fledged ISO dive specs, the Frogman is a perfect tool watch for all of your aquatic activities. You’ll appreciate the built in moon phase/tide display, stop watch, timer, and full calendar too. The watch stays charged thanks to a solar-powered charging system that was designed specifically for this model’s case shape, only needing minimal exposure to light in order to stay running.



A Value-Packed Pick - Timex Marlin 40mm Blue

Back in 2017, Timex started bringing mechanical watches back into their mix. One such watch was a reissue of the iconic Marlin – an extremely popular dress watch from the 1960s. After a few years of success, Timex has expanded their offerings in the Marlin line with new watches, different sizes, bold styles, and several colors. This 40mm stainless steel example features a mid-tone blue dial with a unique sunburst effect. Inside, there’s an automatic mechanical movement that’s visible through the display caseback. The Marlin makes an excellent gift for someone who’s looking to get their feet wet in the world of mechanical watches, or to add a dressier option to your own collection without breaking the bank.



Upgrade Your Kit - Tini 2 

Yes, that little flashlight button on your phone’s lock screen comes in handy, but you really don't know what you’re missing until you use a modern flashlight. Impossibly small, the Nitecore Tini2 packs a ton of features into a compact, rechargeable, keychain-friendly design. Whether you’re charging up your lume for a late night, navigating your campsite, or just taking the garbage cans to the curb, you’ll appreciate the 5 brightness levels that max out at a blinding 500 lumens. You can plug the Tini2 in via USB-C to recharge the integrated 280mAh battery which show you how much juice is left down to the minute via the OLED screen on the front. If your EDC is lacking a light, this $40 offering from Nitecore is a great place to start.



When You Have Too Many Watches - Leather Service Watch Pouch 

If you’re a master of restraint and only manage to bring a single extra watch on your next trip, a simple travel solution is necessary. The Service Watch Pouch is designed after those simple, yet effective leather pouches that luxury brands use to return your serviced timepiece back from the shop. Each pouch features a padded insert to strap your watch around and a folded/stitched construction with a single snap closure that’ll keep your favorite timepiece cozy during transit. Choose from Carbon Black, Snuff Brown, Alpine Green, or Cinder Gray, all lined with a luxe honey-colored Alcantara suede.


Deal of the Week - Degraw Strap 

The Deal of the Week is from Windup’s own line of watch straps. The Degraw is a casual strap that’s crafted from a smooth, soft nubuck leather. The fine grained leather results in a clean, sharp look that’s easy to pair with whatever watch you want to strap it to. You’ll also appreciate the gentle taper from lug to buckle. Each strap is made with a “rembordé” or “folded” edge, showing off the precise stitching and expert craftsmanship that the Italy-based maker is capable of. Choose from 19, 20, and 22mm lug widths in Wheat Brown, Pewter, Olive Drab, or a darker Molasses Brown. Now 20% off only in the Windup Watch Shop!
