You’re probably well aware of our sordid love affair with black on black watches. Given how much we see eye to eye on these things, you’re probably also guilty of it too. Something about a timepiece that’s big, dark and handsome just says – “I’m not to be trifled with.” But usually protection of this nature (even if it’s all in your head) comes at a relatively steep price. Not with the Timex EZ Read. Everything on the watch is black (42mm case, 18mm leather band, hands and numbers) except the face – that’s a very dark (almost black) brushed dial. Because it’s hard for even Robert Downey Jr. to look good in full blackface and he was Iron Man.

 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.
