Buckshot-Sonnys-Military-Watches

Maybe it’s an all too enthralling trip to Hodinkee, or just the fact that we’re kind of sick of the collection of modern watches sitting around, but we’ve been jonesing for a good looking vintage watch for a while. Money isn’t falling from trees these days, so we had to immediately rule out anything that could be sold at a Sotheby’s auction. Thankfully, Buckshot Sonny’s has a collection of authentic, military issue watches from Benrus and Hamilton dated from 1965-1980 that are all just shy of $400. Each watch is lovingly refurbished by master watch repairman Steve Evavold from Chicago’s Division Street Watch Co. You’re getting the same amount of history (if not more) and style as the much more expensive counterparts but at a fraction of the cost.

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
