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.
If you don’t have a cigar cutter on hand when you want to light up a cigar you need to get all MacGyver with it. And since a cigar cutter isn’t part of the average everyday carry collection, this can happen often. Instead of adding another item to your already packed pockets consider having your knife pull double duty. The Cigar Cutter Pocket Knife packs a cigar cutter right in the handle. Pair that with the long-lasting AUS-8 stainless blade and you have a tool that will assist in small chores and in enjoying a cigar when you’re done with them.
