Oceanist Large Messenger Bag

Simple is good, but today’s market is flooded with messenger bags that have forgotten the concept.  They come tailored with pockets for everything: your cellphone, your iPod, your laptop, some spare change, your pen, a piece of dental floss, some lint you found the other day in your pants, a hot dog, and one of those weird crinkly silver emergency blankets. Ideally, you need a bag that carries stuff and looks good doing it.  Oceanist got it right then: simple, classic style, solid build, and yes, it carries shit.   Perfect.


Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
