When it comes to classic maritime vessels, nothing has a more tumultuous history than the U-boat. Something about being encased in metal, crushing depths, and the occasional mermaid just tickles our fancy. So any company (especially one that makes watches) calling themselves U-Boat better bring their A game, and bring it they did. The Classico U-1001 is the most rugged watch that U-Boat produces and is rated to withstand 1001 meters below the water’s surface. For reference, the Rolex Submariner gets 300 meters. If you’re seriously going underwater, you better get serious about your choice of timepiece. Oh yeah, it also looks damn good.

 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.
