Early Prime Day Deal: The Classic Timex Weekender Watch Has Gone On Sale

Timex watches have been worn on the wrists of men for generations under some of the hairiest conditions imaginable. You know that phrase, “It takes a licking and keeps on ticking”? Yeah, that was written about Timex watches, thanks in part to servicemen over multiple wars trusting them to the second. So when we saw that Amazon is throwing an early Prime Day sale on some of the company’s most popular timepieces, including the Classic Weekender, we jumped at it. If you’ve long admired the watch’s generation-spanning good looks and legendary durability, now is your chance to jump on this Prime Day watch deal. You can now save 25% off its regular price.

Start with the 40-millimeter case, which is crafted from clean stainless steel and polished to a mirror finish. It’s appropriate for all sizes of wrists without being ostentatious. Next, add a cream dial, which complements the case and emphasizes its clean, put-together aesthetic. Arabic numerals, with sub-numerals for the 24-hour clock if you prefer, are finished with the company’s classic indiglo coating on its face for clear and long-lasting visibility day or night. And then there’s its woven synthetic NATO strap, which dries quickly and adds just the right amount of nubby texture to contrast the watch body’s smoothness. It’s a classic pairing and a classic look, minimalist and refined.

Of course, living up to its marketing slogans, this watch is surprisingly durable for such a sleek package. It’s water-resistant to 100 feet, and while we wouldn’t suggest taking it on your next scuba adventure, it’s more than appropriate as a daily diver that won’t develop hydrophobia. It also features a scratch-resistant mineral crystal for added ruggedness, and with a 10-year battery life, you won’t be paying a visit to the mall kiosk any time soon.

The brilliance of this watch, however, is the sheer volume of options you have to customize it over time (and thanks to its can’t-bust-’em durability, you’ll have plenty of time). It takes a common 20-millimeter band, and the sky’s the limit when it comes to customizing it. Know a local leatherworker? He can craft you something one-of-a-kind. There are entire companies that just make watch bands, so with a few top Google hits you can quickly purchase a backup band and give your timepiece a whole new look.

Leaveit  to a company that’s been around for more than 150 years to create something that’s timeless. Plenty of watches have bling, but few have that kind of staying power year after year, generation after generation. But beyond good looks, the reason Timex has remained a menswear staple is because of its legendary durability. With this Weekender deal through Amazon Prime, you can pick up this classic piece of Americana for cheaper than ever before and trust that it will last for years to come.

It seems everyone loves the '80s, and honestly, what's not to love? The simpler times, the yuppies, MTV, and, of course, the fashion. Mitchell & Ness Nostalgia Co., a renowned seller of historically accurate vintage sports apparel, is capitalizing on that throwback trend with another partnership with Miller Lite. Together, they have launched a limited-edition collection that "gives a fresh take on the nostalgia of the original Athletic Club line" that originated in that decade. That's right! Now you can own vintage-inspired crew necks, sweatpants, t-shirts, windbreakers, and hats that will take you all the way back to that classic '80s vibe.
What's in the collection?
Pieces from the collection range from $35 to $100, according to a press release,  made with "premium fabrics, providing high-quality pieces that are built to last." This includes a classic crewneck sweatshirt that is unisex and comes with ribbed side panels for maximum stretch, ribbing at the cuffs for a truly '80s look, and the Miller Lite Athletic Club emblem on the front for $80. Also in the collection are the snapback hat in navy ($35), a navy windbreaker (because you can't have a throwback line without a windbreaker) for $100, sweats, and a 100% polyester unisex satin navy jacket ($95) to cap off the look. It can't get much more '80s than this.

This incredible chronograph watch just debuted, and you’re going to love it
This luxury watch from Bravur is a stunner
Bravur La Crosa Rosa III

If you're a fan of luxury watches, you may want to take a deep breath before you continue. Bravur, the Swedish watchmaker and cycling enthusiast, just dropped their newest model, The La Corsa Rosa model III, and it's as stunning as you'd come to expect from the manufacturer. The founders, with all their watches, pay homage to The Grand Tour—La Corsa Rosa (nickname for Giro d’Italia), La Grande Boucle (referring to the Tour de France), and La Vuelta (or Vuelta a España)—three of the biggest, most historic bike races in the world. Each watch is hand built in Båstad, Sweden, and the detail and style are nothing short of perfection.

The La Corsa Rosa model III
The new model was inspired by the Giro d'Italia, which is the first Grand Tour of the year. It has a case diameter of 38.2 mm, both beautiful and weighted thoughtfully. The case, made from 316L stainless steel, has been treated with a matte black ceramic coating. The sandwich dial has gorgeous pink accents, an homage to the leader's jersey of the race. Additionally, the tricolor on the sub-dial is a reference to the blue climber's jersey and the purple sprinter's jersey, worn by the rider with the most points in the mountains and sprinters classification.

HEYDUDE Slip-On Shoes Are So Comfortable You Won’t Want to Wear Anything Else

This content was produced in partnership with HEYDUDE.
As a brand, HEYDUDE is sweeping the nation. Becoming more and more popular with just about every age, and people from every walk of life -- it's the fastest-growing footwear brand in the U.S. and the company will surpass $1B in value real soon. There's a good reason for it. HEYDUDEs are stylish, super comfortable, convenient, and once you try them, you'll fall in love. To understand why, we have to backtrack a little bit.

In warmer weather, flip-flops and sandals are the go-to, not just because they keep your feet cool and open, but also because they're so convenient to put on. You just have to slide your feet right in and off you go. They're not at all stylish, however, and you wouldn't want to wear them with certain outfits. HEYDUDEs fix that problem, and so much more. Known as some of the "cushiest, comfiest, airiest, featheriest, lightest shoes on Earth," these words of praise still don't do these shoes justice. You might be wondering, what makes them so comfortable? What kinds of styles do they offer? We're going to explore precisely that.
