There’s a certain stigma when it comes to automatic watches that they’re not attainable for the average guy. Fortunately for the rest of us (anyone that can’t wear a mortgage payment on their arm or park it in their driveway), there are a few affordable options in the automatic world. One of our favorites is the new Branco from Orbis Morgan. We’re not going to get into the nitty gritty details of the watch because Hodinkee lays it out better than we ever could, but we will say this–pairing a Miyota 8215 movement, PVD 43mm case and an Italian leather watch band (and some other bands in the package) to a sub-$250 price tag is almost unheard of on a watch that looks this good.
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.
