Oris Aquis Date
For many years, watchmakers tended to put function over form when it came to dive pieces. Now, however, things have changed, and while function is still of supreme importance, form is no longer a secondary consideration.
Take the Oris Aquis Date, for example – it offers supreme dive functionality with 300 meters of water resistance and a 43.50mm stainless steel case with ceramic bezel, while the stainless steel and mineral case back gives the wearer a view of the intricate Oris Calibre 733 automatic movement. This is a watch that looks and performs just as well underwater as it does on land, making it one heck of a versatile diver fit for everyday use.

Bodum 3-Cup French Press
Save 33%>There are many coffee brewing styles, all with very different difficult levels and technique requirements.

French presses are nearly always cheaper than every other brew method — especially today.
Bodum’s presses are lauded for their simple, straightforward and cheap approach to pressing coffee through a mesh filter, and its most affordable option is marked down to a whopping $10 on Wayfair right now. This 3-cup press is dishwasher-safe, hard to break and, naturally, doesn’t require the stocking and re-stocking of paper filters. — Will Price
