Monta Watches has been making a name for itself with timepieces offering high levels of fit and finish. At Baselworld earlier this year, the brand released its newest collection of watches with the Atlas GMT to an enthusiastic reception. With a versatile diameter of 38.5mm and lacquer dials in three fresh color options (black, blue, and white), the Atlas tracks two time zones with sporty elegance. The indie watch brand is known for its thoughtful details, such as the stepped GMT hand which makes room for the other dial elements, allowing the GMT function to be subtle and lending to an overall refined feel. This already reasonably priced GMT will eventually retail at $1,795 for the bracelet version but can currently be had for $1,615 during the pre-order period, a discount of $180. If you’re looking for a well-crafted GMT with superb wrist presence you’d be hard pressed to find a better deal.

Grenco Labs G Pen Elite Vaporizer
There is a lot to recommend this vape. In addition to simply being a well-designed object, the vaporizer features a 360-degree rapid-heating ceramic chamber, a battery life indicator and the ability to adjust the temperature between 200° and 428°F. This last feature is a unique one that allows users can find that right balance of flavor and effect. For the price, it’s hard to beat this kind of functionality.

Arc’teryx Granville Backpack
Save $85: Among our choices for the best waterproof backpacks, Arc’teryx’s Granville is perhaps the most stylish, and it’s currently on sale for 38 percent off at Mountain Steals. The Granville is a flip-top bag that comes in muted colors and employs an aesthetic that underplays its technical edge. The lid closes with an integrated magnetic clasp and hides a small pocket for essentials like keys or a wallet. Its main compartment includes a padded laptop sleeve and organizing sleeves for chargers and other essentials. The Granville is an excellent example of Arc’teryx pulling its outdoor tech into an urban-oriented item to make it better suited to the real rigors of daily life, like walking or riding a bike in the rain.

Todd Snyder x Champion Sportswear
Save up to 30%: Between Champion’s iconic sportswear and Todd Snyder’s mature-yet-contemporary tailored menswear, there is a lot to love. So it’s no surprise that when the brands joined forces on a collection of sturdy sweats and off-duty styles, it was a natural fit. Rather than the somewhat baggy, casual styling Champion is known for — ideal for exercise and weekend lounging — this line is comprised of modern silhouettes in throwback colors cut from Champion’s distinctive reverse-weave cotton.
So if you’re looking to upgrade your out-of-office attire, look no further — you can snap up cozy crewnecks, slimmed-down joggers, retro-inspired graphic tees and more for up to 30 percent off right now.
