Don’t let Ed Hardy and similar tattoo-style designs affect your love for skulls and all things macabre. These four tees prove that you don’t need rhinestones, gothic lettering and fancy swirls to make a skull statement. With graphics that are definitely more “day of the dead” than “night of the living douche,” you won’t have to be concerned about your lack of hulk-like biceps.

Vaer has been one of our favorite watchmakers for as long as we can remember because they produce new, classic watches based on iconic designs. Case in point, the Vaer G5 Meridian watch you see here. This timepiece is a 1950s-inspired 20ATM automatic watch that’s USA-assembled, dual timezone, built with ocean-ready functionality, self-winding and the brand’s first true GMT (the latest version of their core dive watch design). What’s more, it pays homage to other watches that are incredibly more expensive or hard to come by whilst also adding new aspects that makes this Vaer G5 Meridian watch more desirable than the other options in our opinion.
