There are a lot of affordable but generally crappy watches out there. You can tell they’re cheap just by looking at them. Not so with the new James & Muriel The Timekeeper Watch. The refined but minimalist design uses small but very legible numerals, markers, and hands while also employing a small seconds subdial; not something you usually see on a sub-$300 timepiece. The watch also makes use of slim and curved wired lugs for a cleaner look. And lest you think they’ve scrimped on materials quality to keep the price low, the Time Keeper’s case is made of 316L stainless steel, the movement is a Swiss gold-plated Ronda movement, and the strap is full-grain Italian leather. There are also three matte finish dial colors: Silk White, Dreamer’s Black, and Horizon Blue, all of which will look proper with both casual and semi-formal wear (even black-tie with the black/silver colorway). The Kickstarter campaign is going on now, and you can get an Early Bird price of $169 before the price climbs to $249, which is still a real bargain.

Made of naturally antimicrobial copper allow, The Clean Key works like extra hand or finger to let you open doors, push buttons on ATMs and elevators, and even operate touch screens on registers–without direct contact. It can also be easily cleaned with steel wool or a disinfectant wipe without tarnishing or corroding the slick exterior.
