The Seiko 5 has been one of the go-to automatic watches for longer than most of us have been alive (60s, in case you were curious) for a number of reasons. It had high water resistance. It had Hardlex glass that was scratch-resistant. It had a 21 jewel automatic movement. Most importantly, it was affordable. It’s still affordable. It still performs well. The line as a whole has really withstood the test of time. All those things are why it’s the perfect starting point for Matthew Humphries Design (MHD) to make an excellent custom timepiece. Using skills he picked up as the design chief of Morgan Motor Company, Matthew personally handmakes each watch using high-quality components, like Seiko 5 movements and natural veg-tanned cowhide leather, to create limited edition pieces like the one you see here. If you want a truly unique experience, he’ll also customize your existing collection for you.

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.
