A field watch should be ready for whatever you can throw at it. And while many watches claim to be field watches, few are truly rugged enough to handle any environment. The Venture Field Watch from BOLDR with its titanium case, however, is a true adventurer’s companion.
Made out of solid aerospace-grade titanium, the slim 38mm case is incredibly strong and extremely light. Water-resistant up to 330 feet, the Venture also sports a Nato strap with a titanium keeper and buckle. And with BOLDR’s lifetime warranty, you certainly won’t have to worry about the watch should something ever happen to it. Sleek and stylish, BOLDR’s Venture Field Watch can go anywhere you want it to and will look good along the way.
Two Great Coffee Makers
Save 20% There are hundreds of drip coffee makers in the world, but only 14 have earned the Specialty Coffee Association’s stamp of approval. The Certified Home Brewer Program is the most rigorous third-party coffee maker certification there is.
Today, two coffee makers from some of coffee’s biggest names — OXO and Breville — are on sale on Amazon, and both are SCA-certified. .
The Breville Precision Brewer ($240) and the OXO Barista Brain ($160) both produce excellent cups of coffee. For the prospective buyer, the Breville machine comes with more brew options and a bit more in the way of customizing your brew, and is a good bit faster to brew (this is thanks to a unique water heating system). The OXO brewer is a bit more compact (measure the space between your counter and cabinets before purchasing either) and straightforward, though, and is likely the better choice for the person who wants the easiest route to great coffee.
Both are at or near the lowest price we’ve ever seen them on Amazon today.
All-Clad Roasting Pan
Save 50% All-Clad, widely regarded as producers of the best stainless steel cookware money can buy, make a roasting pan and rack combo that typically runs $260. Today, it’s half that. All-Clad’s roaster pack is made with the same 18/10 stainless steel as its skillets and saute pans, and therefore is safe to put on the stove to make gravy from the turkey drippings. The rack itself is coated in a non-stick material, a helpful touch intended to keep meat from latching onto the rack.
