Todd-Snyder-x-Timex-Liquor-Store-Watch

Todd Snyder and Timex are a match made in affordable horological heaven. Now, the former J. Crew designer has pulled from his past by using the J. Crew Liquor Store shop as inspiration for a new timepiece while also using the site to create his own menswear shop. The watch measures 38mm in diameter, running counter to the trend of bigger timepieces, and powered by a Japanese automatic movement. The elegant ecru white dial gets classic gold hands and numerals, and a timeless olive green fabric strap. The domed acrylic crystal also points to vintage watches, and there’s even a see-through caseback. Swap out the strap for a leather version, and you can easily make this watch suit-worthy.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
