If you want to get your girlfriend off your back about how you have magazines and remotes all over your living room when she visits, then you should get something to stick that stuff in. We don’t really know why she cares whether it’s in a stack on top of a box of pizza or in a basket, but we do know that you better do what she says if you want her to spend the night. Pick up your stuff and stash it in one of these cool vintage wooden soda crates. They’re neat enough for her and rugged enough that you don’t feel like you’re letting her change you.


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.
