MWC-Mil-Spec-US-Army-Watch

In 1964, the US Army needed watches that fit the following specification. “Plastic-cased wrist watch intended for use where a high degree of accuracy is not required.” They were also intent on not maintenancing them in the military supply system. The Army wanted a cheap, disposable plastic watch that could be deployed by the thousands to troops. They probably never intended for them to end up desirable, but like everything else vintage they have. Kind of. MWC took the design skeleton of that original watch and updated it with 316L stainless and an accurate Quartz movement. What they didn’t do was screw with the sleek, simple design of the original. It’s old school meets new technology.

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.
