Watches, like everything in fashion, can go terribly wrong. We need only reference the watches of rappers and compensating celebrities, adorned with enough diamonds to have tangible impacts on Antwerp economy. In the end, all watches do one thing and one thing only: tell time. Seiko, forever the maker of the everyman’s watch, does it just as well any. A simple handsome analog face set in a metal case contains all the basic functions: stopwatch, calendar date, luminous dials and waterproof to over 300 feet. A durable and comfy fabric strap keeps it on your extremity. And for the price of one of those iced-out watches, you can buy it and a two bedroom/two bath walk-up condo in Manhattan.

[Shop]  Just like the stash boxes that lined your father’s workbench back in the day, these metal vessels are ideal for all sorts of loose necessities. The two cases—the smaller one is nestled inside the larger one—are both made of durable stamped steel and offer simple, attractive storage for EDC gear, loose nuts and bolts, or anything you’d normally toss in your kitchen junk drawer. Each set is made in Italy and comes in a stealth color exclusive to Cool Material. For all the valuable knickknacks strewn around the house or tossed haphazardly on your workbench, these boxes are ready to placate your inner organizational fiend.
