It takes a considerably large set of balls to up and decide you want to make your own watch. It takes even more to decide that you’re going to make nine different watches with an even larger collection of straps, but that’s exactly what Robert Willis decided to do. Nine unique watch designs inspired by and named after a different New York City street. Each watch in the Kickstarter project uses ETA Swiss movements, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal lenses, surgical-grade stainless steel cases and is water resistant to 150 feet. In addition to the variety you get in the case (36mm / 38mm / 40mm / 41mm) and face options, there are also NATO and leather strap color options. At less than $300 a pop, these might be some of the best designed men’s watches on the market.

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
