The Timex Waterbury watch collection was originally released earlier this year to celebrate the 150+ years that Timex has been making awesome, durable, upgradeable and affordable watches. The Chronograph and Date models were both excellent in their own right, but Timex has taken the Waterbury collection one step further by collaborating with everyone’s favorite boot manufacturer, Red Wing. In collaborating with Red Wing Shoes, Timex has gotten access to a whole slew of premium, sophisticated leather that has been turned into the strap for two Waterbury Date models (38mm / 40mm) and a Waterbury Chronograph (42mm). In addition to the upgraded leather straps, each hole on the band has individual numeric inscriptions (presumably for sizing) to add an extra level of detail. The watches remain affordable—especially for the quality of the band—but they’re only available through Timex Japan right now.

Finding a belt that fits exactly right when your weight fluctuates is impossible–unless you’re wearing a Mission Belt. Mission Belts use a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″, which means a comfortable, easy-to-adjust fit every time. Their full-grain Italian leather collection includes seven options, so there’s a good-looking, high-quality Mission Belt for every occasion. As if that wasn’t enough, $1 from every belt sold goes to their “Mission” of fighting poverty with micro loans through a partnership with Kiva. To date, they’ve loaned over $4.1 million in over 75 countries. Fits perfectly. Fights poverty.
