Fresh Deals


Seiko Divers Marked Way, Way Down
Save up to $220: The Seiko 5 is the quintessential beginner watch thanks to a mechanical movement and reliable build quality that are offered at an incredibly low price. And right now you can get two of them, both divers, at a great price on Massdrop. The first is SRPB3X, dubbed the “Baby Monster” as it takes the overall look of the SKX-series “Monster” but puts it in a smaller, more affordable package. The other is the SRPC6X which has a rounder case and thinner bezel that echo the look of the iconic “Tuna.” Both watches use the trusty 4R36 automatic movement and are water-resistant to 100 meters. — Andrew Connor


This Sale Is Your Best Chance to Get an Awesome Knife for Less
Save up to 60%: Included in Backcountry’s Semi Annual sale is a collection of awesome knives. Some of them are more than 60 percent off. — Tanner Bowden


Tumi Briefcases
Save 30%: Summer sales offer a great chance to invest in big-ticket items that are normally unobtainable. More often than not, bags and briefcases geared towards urban professionals are more expensive than their casual counterparts, due in part to the use of more expensive materials and more complicated designs. If you’re looking to pick up an office-ready bag for a good deal, East Dane is currently offering 30 percent off a few tasteful options from Tumi. Even with the discount the prices aren’t cheap, but that’s to be expected from a reputable brand like Tumi. — John Zientek


Apple AirPods
Save $14: The price of Apple’s AirPods has stayed at $159 since they were released roughly two years ago. You can find certified refurbished models for a little less, at either Best Buy or eBay, but that’s about it. Now, with rumblings of a new AirPod case set to be announced (with an LED light to indicate battery life), it seems the price of AirPods is finally dropping — but again, by just a little. Right now you can buy brand new AirPods on Amazon for $145 — $14 off what they’re going for on Apple’s website. — Tucker Bowe
