A Value-Packed Pick - Citizen Promaster Dive Automatic

Citizen’s watches are known for packing a huge amount of features and quality into an affordable package. The Promaster Dive Automatic does just that – it’s a fully capable dive watch with classic Citizen styling that’s water resistant down to 200 meters. The case is protected from magnetism, it has a screw-down crown, day-date display, and a supremely legible lumed dial. Known as the “fugu”, this diver features its namesake creature engraved into the caseback. At just under $500, it represents a solid and reliable watch that really brings the value.

Upgrade Your Kit - Tactile Bolt Action Pen Titanium 

Sure, a throwaway plastic pen gets the job done, but where’s the fun in that? Tactile Turn machines premium pens from a selection of metals right in their Dallas-based machine shop. Every piece of the pen is made in-house under their roof, including the clips, screws, and laser engraving. The Titanium Bolt Action is precision machined from titanium and features Tactile’s signature grooved grip pattern along the body of the pen. Even though it’s made from metal, there’s no slippage here. You extend the refill via the fidget-friendly bolt action mechanism that you’ll most likely find yourself clicking even when you don’t have to write.

When You Have Too Many Watches - Marathon Atomic Digital Clock 

While your wrist game is strong, there’s a pretty good chance that your wall is slacking. There’s no denying the convenience of glancing up at a large, legible wall clock when you’re getting stuff done around the office or home. Marathon’s Atomic Digital Clock ensures you’ll always be on time, thanks to the 4” digital display that syncs the time via the atomic clock signal. It self adjusts according to the frequencies broadcast from NIST’s Colorado Atomic Clock for down-to-the-second accuracy. It can also display the indoor temperature, several different time zones, and the day / date.
