We’re amazed at the amount of upcycled bike gear we continuously find. It’s like bikes subscribe to some sort of Buddhist rebirth ideology where they die and come back to life in a new form. The latest we stumbled across are these Bike Chain Belt Buckles available from Bike Craft. Each buckle is a TIG welded, powder-coated belt buckle made from reclaimed bicycle chain. The buckles fit most standard belts, are rust and corrosion resistant and are handmade in Portland, Oregon (make sure you pause and collect your breath after recovering from that shocking bit of news).

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.
