HODINKEE is, has been, and will always be one of our favorite sites to read because of their dedication to serious watch coverage. That said, we can’t always afford the timepieces that international superstars like contributors John Mayer and Ed Sheeran wear on their wrists, which is why we’re so enthralled with the affordable collaborations they do with the likes of Swatch and others. Their latest is the HODINKEE Swatch Sistem51 Generation 1986 that blends an all black exterior and case with contrasting numeral and dial markers to create a timepiece that’s fun and functional while still remaining seriously stylish. It’s a watch that any man would want to strap on with a full monkey suit or just while wearing a pair of jeans and a tee, but unfortunately, the $170 watch sold out almost instantly like all other HODINKEE collaboration watches. If you want one, you’ll have to jump on the waitlist and hope your number comes up in the future like the rest of us.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
