Giveaway-Two-Marc-Ecko-Recon-Watches

Hi, we’re the editors at Cool Material and we have a problem. We have an addiction to timepieces. It’s a safe bet that if we found out the house was on fire, the first thing on our list of things to save would be the watch box with over 50 watches in it. We’re not the types of guys that have one $10k timepiece because we always come close to having a coronary when we think about spending that much on a watch. So we pick up a $200 piece here and a $300 piece there and the rest is history. Marc Ecko has some new watches dubbed The Recon that come packed with multiple faces and a military-inspired design that involved plenty of stainless steel. At $135 each, they’re pretty close to “I would buy this in a heartbeat if I was drunk” territory and is a solid value even at full price. But let’s face it, everything in life is better when it’s free.

GIVEAWAY
Contest closed! Congrats to Andrew (Rayban link) and Chris R.

We have one Marc Ecko The Recon Black Dial and one The Recon Silver Dial watch (MSRP $135 each) that we’d like to send to two different readers for nothing. That’s right, you don’t even have to pay shipping and handling. Here’s how you win:

Leave a comment below or on the Cool Material Facebook page telling us your favorite piece of military-inspired gear you’re going to pair your new watch with if you win. Bonus points if you give us a link to the gear.

We’ll choose two separate winners Friday, 11/4. Good Luck!

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
