Restoration Hardware is a great place to pick up the latest and greatest in the world of “vintage,” but actually buying anything there normally requires bartering with firstborn children or organs. Unless of course all you’re looking for is a sweet leather condom for your latest and greatest gadget. Artisan iPhone leather case? $39. Artisan iPad Jacket? $99. Kindle? $69. Warm chestnut leather hue (infused with bark and leaf pigments) with topstitching, coupled with strap or magnetic closures, and the ability to wipe clean? It would be priceless, but we’re pretty sure the only thing priceless and leather clad is Carrie-Anne Moss. Until we can keep that in our pocket we’re going to simply refer to these affordable leather holsters as awesome.


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.
