This week, we kick things off with a fun (but seriously good) Paulin Modul A. From there we explore a G-Shock that has more features than you can count and a pen that packs a real punch. Toss in there a real treasure of a kerchief and a classic military watch on sale, and you’ve got yourself a heck of a lineup. Without further ado, here is your weekly Roundup.

Treat Yourself: Paulin Modul A

The Paulin Modul A is a whimsical, design-first watch that seems simple at first but is deceivingly difficult to pull off. Tasteful details abound: look at the shapes of the hour markers and hands against the cheerful yellow backdrop. The overall aesthetic is elegantly balanced – in particular, the understanding of color theory by featuring the three primary colors is a nice touch. The case dimensions also make this an easy watch for anyone to wear: The Modul A measures 35mm wide, 40mm lug to lug, and just over 8mm thick. These reasonably-sized, hand-wound timepieces hail from Glasgow, Scotland, where Paulin has made a name for themselves building high quality watches offering something a little different from the rest. This is a fantastic example of just that.

Value-Packed Pick: G-Shock Rangeman GPRH1000

G-Shock and “value-packed” are virtually synonymous at this point. The Rangeman GPRH1000 is no exception, and it is part of a new series of watches Casio calls “Master of G - Land”. With this watch, you will no doubt master any terrain or environment you find yourself in as it packs a host of expected complications – stopwatches, alarms, world timer – with additional health-related sensors to track laps, cardio, blood oxygen, sleep, and more. It’s bold, it’s lightweight, it’s durable as can be. In short, it’s a G-Shock. 

Upgrade Your Kit: Tactile Turn Side Click

A high quality pen is as satisfying to hold and use as any crisp hand-wound movement or well-engineered chronograph pusher. Tactile Turn, true to its name, has become an expert in this by building pens right here in the USA for many years. The Side-Click Standard Pen gets its name from its side refill and release button. It’s a mechanism that works the same way every single time with an uncommon sense of quality and confidence. Available in titanium, bronze, or copper, the Side-Click makes a valuable sidekick.

When You Have Too Many Watches: Cantonment Kerchief + Woggle Set

If you thought kerchiefs were a thing of the past, think again. Cantonment has created a kerchief - woggle set that will boggle your mind with all the ways it can be used. Each set comprises two beautifully designed 18.5” square cloths and a “woggle”, which is a nylon strap with a fixed button. On its own, the cloth is useful for protection, cleaning, or as a workstation for delicate items. Together, the woggle and cloth can attach to belt loops, collars, and more to provide a stylish form of coverage and utility. Cantonment even has a special collaboration with the folks at ADPT that features incredible landscape imagery and match the rugged NATO straps offered by ADPT.

Deal of the Week: Marathon Navigator

This week’s deal means business. It’s 41mm of matte black (or sage green) high-impact fiber composite that is designed to handle the world’s toughest conditions. The Navigator is the modern day mil-spec watch that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Its recognizable asymmetric case houses an ETA high-torque quartz movement, and its dial remains legible in all conditions thanks to ever-glowing tritium tubes used for hour markers. It’s a rig of a watch that is currently on sale right here in the Shop, so get yours while you can.
