The iconic JBL L100 speaker was first produced in 1970 and went on to become the bestselling loudspeaker in JBL’s history. The JBL L100 Classic is a modern take on the original L100 found in homes across the country throughout the ’70s and ’80s. First, we need to talk about the vintage design and that funky Quadrex foam grill. If it looks familiar, it’s because the original L100 with the same grill was the speaker from the iconic Maxell “Blown Away Guy” ads from the ’80s that was parodied by Family Guy, Jackass and even a Diddy music video. The L100 Classic has 1-inch titanium dome tweeter, 5-inch pure-pulp cone midrange driver, 12-inch woofer in a bass-reflex enclosure all housed in a satin walnut wood veneer enclosure that’s capped with that iconic grill in black, orange or blue.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
