We make no secret of the fact that we are infatuated with Nixon watches in much the same way we were with our first babysitter. The babysitter might have failed taking care of your wood and rubber needs, but Nixon doesn’t disappoint. In either regard. Having sated every adolescent fantasy we’ve ever had, Nixon set about making a watch for the grown-up society thinks we are. Enter Nixon’s “Elite” The Magnacon SS. The custom titanium carbide coated stainless steel 50mm case will make you feel like the big man on campus and the $750 price tag means even the community college guys can stomach it. If you want diversity, it comes in black, silver, and gunmetal. You won’t even need to wish for more hands to give this watch six thumbs up – it comes with them.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
