Our record with audio technology reads like the dating history of John Mayer – a slew of long relationships, a bunch more brief ones and a regretful one-night stand (the minidisc).  Yeah, we’re happy with our mp3’s now, but just like thinking back on a past flame, we sometimes get nostalgic about our old cassette tapes.  That’s the inspiration for the Deckster (the nostalgia of dropping in a tape, not old hook-up buddy part).  The Deckster is a high end watch unit for your iPod Nano that draws its inspiration from slipping a cassette into your Walkman in the 80’s – you know, right before you strapped on your rollerblades.  The dual-motion slider allows the watch to be worn on either wrist and the unit is made of aircraft-grade aluminum housing and handcrafted bands.  Now, to build the perfect digital mixtape.

For all the valuable knickknacks strewn around the house or tossed haphazardly on your workbench, these boxes are ready to placate your inner organizational fiend.
