What's New, Now

Today in Gear: A Tribute to Oris’s First Wristwatch, Apple’s iMac Pro and More

December 14, 2017 Briefings By Photo by Oris

New & Noteworthy Releases

Oris Big Crown 1917 Limited Edition
The Big Crown 1917 is a newly-made tribute to Oris’s first aviation watch, and as you’d expect it’s practically ripped straight from the brand’s archives. Essentially a pocket watch with lugs and a leather strapped attached, it looks decidedly old school thanks to details like a 40mm stainless steel case, a dial with vintage-looking Arabic numerals and “cathedral hands.” Internally though it houses a modern automatic movement. Like the original, however, this new incarnation has the same button at two o’clock that unlocks the crown when setting the time. There’s little else like it on the watch market today, and that’s what we love about it.

Apple iMac Pro
Announced back in June, the iMac Pro was touted as Apple’s most powerful computer ever. And after what seems like an age, you can finally order one today. As a recap, the iMac Pro has an 8-Core Xeon processor (which is upgradeable to 18 cores), a 5K display and super fancy AMD Radeon Pro Vega GPU card that’ll, according to Apple, produce “the most advanced graphics ever in a Mac.” For most people, the iMac Pro will be overkill, not to mention out of their price range. But if you’re a creative who knows exactly how to use this supremely powerful all-in-one machine, the iMac Pro starts at $5K. — Tucker Bowe

Backwash Magazine Issue 3
Surfing may seem like a fair-weather sport, but there are many diehards chasing waves in locales that aren’t all turquoise waters and white sand beaches. Backwash’s latest 160-page book focuses on the waves of the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea that beat against the shores of the United Kingdom, and the hearty souls who ride them. — Tanner Bowden

Wolverine Lodge Moc Slipper
Handcrafted in Maine with premium Horween leather, the Lodge Moc slipper is the first-ever slipper in Wolverine’s ‘1000 Mile’ collection, essentially their finest and most long-lasting product line. Much like Wolverine’s classic 1000 Mile boots, the Lodge Moc Slipper will resist decades of wear and tear, while a Shearling-lined interior provides cozy warmth. — Michael Finn

Manduka eQua Yoga Mat
No activity is immune to a proliferation of specialized gear, not even yoga, despite its inherent focus on simplicity. Manduka’s latest yoga mat, the eQua, combines mat and towel into one in an attempt to pare down the amount of stuff required for your practice. Manduka constructs the mat’s base with the sustainably-sourced tree rubber it’s known for but uses a microfiber towel top that’s extra grippy when slightly wet from perspiration. That non-rubber top also comes in three stylish, artist-inspired prints. — Tanner Bowden

Fresh Deals

Get a Cozy Pair of Woolrich Slippers for Just $25
A great pair of slippers can make all the difference when scuttling about your home on cold winter mornings. If you (or one of your giftees) doesn’t have a pair, Huckberry is offering solid markdowns on a host of slippers from Pensylvania wool-weaving staple Woolrich through December 20th. That means you can snag Woolrich’s classic Scuff Slipper for just $25 (about 23% off). It pairs a cozy, foot-friendly fleece construction with a rubber outsole that’s ideal for making quick trips outside.

Don’t Miss These Deals On Essential Gear From Topo Designs
Now at Huckberry, you can save up to 21% on various bags and other gear from Topo Designs. The range of American-made goods include classic day packs, dopp kits, camera straps and wool beanies. Whether you’re looking for yourself or doing some last minute holiday shopping, there’s something here for everyone, but the deals won’t be around for long.

You Can Grab Nau Apparel for 15% Off Right Now at Huckberry
If I were you, I’d jump all over Nau’s boiled wool shirt — not just because I love overshirts, but because this 15% is a solid discount on what’s essentially some of their newest gear. And you’ll own it forever (or I will if you’re in the gifting mood…). Also of note is the alpaca sweater, which is super soft and hypoallergenic, not to mention (probably) just different from anything you own.

Save an Astounding $800 on This Mechanical Pilot’s Watch
Luminox’s P-38 Lighting is a part of the brand’s aviation-inspired lineup and is fitted with a dial meant to look like it was ripped straight from the cockpit of Lockheed’s funky, two-tailed fighter. As a part of its military-inspired look, it comes with a hulking 44mm case; this might be a non-starter for some guys, but if you have a predilection for big, tough-guy watches it’s an excellent choice in wristwear. Similarly, the watch comes adorned with stylish and legible Arabic numerals as well as sharp tritium gas lume and a chunky rotating bezel sitting atop the square case.

This iteration of the P-38 Lighting, in particular, comes packing a Swiss-made automatic movement which contributes to its fairly-high $1,400 MSRP, but right now you can get a massive $800 markdown at Huckberry.

Instant Pot’s Most Powerful Model Is 53% Off Right Now
Instant Pot helped ignite a passion for pressure cooking and the brand’s appliances — which function as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, steamer and rice cooker — have a cult-like following amongst home chefs. But for those who have been sheepish about adopting the brand’s devices, Instant Pot’s most powerful model, the Ultra, has just gotten a massive 53% markdown. In addition to its pre-set functions, its “ULTRA” function allows users to granularly adjust temperature, cooking time and pressurization, adding to its utility (and even turning it into a sous vide circulator). Originally $300, you can get it for just $140 at Sur La Table.

Deal: Get 30% off a 12-Month Subscription to Kindle Unlimited
Kindle Unlimited puts an entire world of literature at your fingertips — quite literally.

Deal: Save on Some of Lululemon’s Most Technical Styles
Lululemon is notorious for not discounting, aside from what occasionally fills the “We Made Too Much” section of its website. That section is now filled with many of their popular technical apparel, including winter gear, at very lucrative discounts. The popular
ABC Pant, sweat-wicking Recommission button-down shirt, water-repellent Lite Speed Jacket and more styles can be purchased at between 15 and 30 percent off. Items and sizes are limited, so shop this rare sale while you can. [button]SHOP NOW: HERE[/button]

Matador Camera Base Layer
If you’ve ever woken before daybreak to summit a mountain and grab the perfect sunrise shot only to find your batteries have frozen and died, then you know that a little insulation for your DSLR is probably a good idea. The Camera Base Layer can wrap a range of camera shapes and sizes, is strap-compatible and cinches with an easy roll-top closure. Rule of thumb: if you’re heading somewhere where you need a down jacket, your camera probably does too.
