The Vaer brand started back in 2015 in Los Angeles by a couple of guys who wanted to create a well-made classic everyday timepiece that would look just as good with a nylon Nato strap as it did with a handsome leather band, and they wanted it to be affordable. Since then, Vaer has made a handful of quartz models that fit the original notion behind the brand, and every model has a 100-meter depth rating, a tough anti-reflective-coated sapphire crystal, display caseback, Swiss movement, and two straps. Now, they’ve moved up the needle by creating their first mechanical automatic that just launched on Kickstarter. The 40mm diameter Vaer Automatic is a perfectly-sized field/military-style timepiece that can be outfitted with either a Japanese Miyota 9015 automatic movement or a Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement. It’s also only 9mm thick, which means the sizing is just right to fit under a dress shirt cuff. Four dial styles are available, and you can find the right style and strap combination to suit your tastes. The campaign to fund it has well exceeded its goal with 26 days left, so you can be sure to get a solid deal on a timeless automatic watch now.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
