By today’s standards, the Model F is a clunky brick. The old IBM keyboard that was popular right after its release in 1981 weighed just under 10 lbs. and came in a thick case. It’s the opposite of what comes with a modern Mac. Still, there are those who claim it’s the greatest keyboard ever made. One of those people is Joe Strandberg, a historian from New York who loves the keyboard for the satisfying feel and sound it produces. He loved the keyboard so much that he’s now manufacturing ones for today’s audience. Packed with IBM’s buckling spring switch technology, Strandberg’s Model F brings to mind the pleasures of typing back in the day. He’s still accepting pre-orders, so if you want to upgrade (downgrade?) your computer keyboard and snag a dose of nostalgia, hop to it.

There are few watches with as storied a legacy as the G-SHOCK. Originally released in 1983, the Shock Resistant and 200M Water Resistant watch has remained relevant to this day. It just got even better with the release of the first full-metal addition to the continually evolving 2100 line. This model retains the original streamlined, minimalist design while being even more sleek, durable and feature-packed. With Tough Solar Power, Smartphone Link and Super Illuminator, it’s an analog watch built for the digital age. The G-SHOCK GBD2100 is available in silver, black IP and Bronze IP colorways, so there’s a stylish version for every occasion.
