Stanley Sons Bags

It always catches our eye when someone is sticking to the tradition of constructing quality products in one-off quantities. Yes, these bags by Stanley and Sons are not cheap: you’d think that by “waxed cotton cloth” they mean “waxed cotten dyed with platinum dust and washed in unicorn tears”. But they truly are one-of-a-kind pieces made by one man who sits down at a bench with a riveter and actually taps away with his hands.


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.
