Great-Seiko-5-Automatic-Watch

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again–the Seiko 5 SNK Series watches might be the only real competitor to the Timex Weekender in terms of style, versatility and bargain basement pricing. The SNK803 Seiko 5 watch–one of the best Seiko watches on Amazon–you see here might not currently be as cheap as your average Timex, but it is on sale for 63% off suggested retail price. That’s right, for about an extra thirty-bucks–or $71 total if you’re counting–you can get an automatic watch with a 21-jewel movement, 37mm stainless case, Hardlex mineral crystal, and water resistance up to 99ft. This Seiko 5 watch also includes day/date functionality, luminosity, a sweeping second second hand (no more ridiculous ticking!) and a matching tan canvas strap. Since the tan face contrasts so nicely with the black, white and silver accents, and since it’s a relatively common lug width like 18mm, it’s also incredibly easy to throw a contrasting black leather or nylon NATO strap onto this incredibly affordable watch. Just don’t wait to pull the trigger because the price will probably go up soon.

 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.
