RepliCade-Insert-Coin-Arcade-Keychain-1

There’s just something about the old school arcade cabinets that will always appeal to us. It doesn’t matter if you’re playing classics like Donkey Kong or Galaga on vintage machines or something more modern on a replica cabinet, games just seem to be more fun when there’s a joystick instead of a controller. In addition to all the button mashing you did while you were playing the titles, there’s another piece of the arcade cabinet you’re more than familiar with–the iconic Insert Coin slot and return button. The Replicade Insert Coin Arcade Keychain perfectly duplicates it in 1:1 scale out of die cast metal. It even has a built-in red LED that lights up when you push the button. It’s a bit heavy as far as keychains go, but that just adds to the authenticity in our opinion. Even if you take the keyring off and just display it on your desk, it’s one more cool tchotchke for the collection.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
