Semper & Adhuc, an upstart French brand named for the Latin “from always until now,” is taking a different approach to watchmaking by salvaging and restoring vintage watch Swiss movements from the past century and giving them a brand new lease on life with a modern case, dial and strap. The collection includes a total of six different watches—three different 316L stainless case styles (round, cushion, oval) with windowed backs and two dial options for each case style. Bracelets in a number of different colors come from a local leather craftsman in Bordeaux. If you want to see the kind of work that goes into making each one of their watches, we highly recommend you check out their Kickstarter video because it’s some serious process porn. The Semper & Adhuc project runs until October 6. If the project is fully funded, estimated delivery on the watches is in April 2019.

1-12-Scale-Pallet-of-Mini-Cinder-Blocks-IF2

[Shop]  We might not all agree on watches, wallets or other pieces of the everyday carry, but the one thing we can all agree on is our mutual love of building things out of small bricks. Forget plastic building bricks that can only be used with specific mats and upgrade your conference call and boring meeting building with this 1:12 scale mini cinder block pallet set. With 24 miniature cinder blocks and one pallet per set, this has everything you need to build a great foundation for the big box creation of your dreams. Whether you’re making a small creation of your own devising with the 24 pieces that come with it, or adding multiples to build something more grandiose, this is the best way to build when you’re not using plastic.
