Monta’s new Atlas GMT is everything you could want from a sporty and elegant tool watch. Designed for the modern gentleman who wants to track multiple time zones, the Atlas GMT hand is ideal for travel or staying in synch with clients or colleagues who work in a different part of the world. This watch stands out with a proportionally-balanced 38.5mm case, that’s just 10.2 mm thick, coupled with 150 meters of water resistance and a mix of brushed, polished and sand-blasted case surfaces. The Atlas is a timepiece that can look sharp in any environment, pairing with your swimsuit just as easily as your boardroom suit. Three different dial options — Charcoal, Opalin Silver and Blue — means you’ll be able to find an option that works for you. You can pre-order the Atlas from Monta before its release in August and save a significant amount off the watch’s final retail pricing, with a pre-order price of $1,615.

Fresh Deals


Whiskey Glasses
Save Up to 30%: The best glass to sip whiskey out of is a debate for another time. Today, Huckberry marked down its collection of whiskey glasses and paraphernalia by up to 30 percent.

The for-sale lot includes Mazama Wares handmade glassware, Terrane’s Oklahoma rocks glass (a snifter from the same brand, too), Whiskey Peaks rocks glasses and more. Just don’t buy the whiskey stones. — Will Price

Fender Custom Shop Joe Bonamassa Collector Series Telecaster
Save 25%: Joe Bonamassa knows a thing or two about vintage Fender guitars. The legendary blues-rock guitarist is a prolific collector and has an epic stockpile of 260 vintage guitars (‘50s and ‘60s Fenders and Gibsons make up a bulk of it). So when Fender’s Custom Shop set out to build an instrument inspired by the guitarist’s much-loved 1955 Telecaster, they had their work cut out for them.

Limited to just 40 instruments which are exclusively carried at Guitar Center, this model is geared towards serious players or avid collectors. And while normal Custom Shop prices can be hard for some to swallow, this guitar is now 25 percent off. That means you can save $1,151 on this ridiculously nice guitar and take it home for just under $3,500. For a person obsessed with the details, this is a deal worth acting on. — John Zientek

Jabra Elite 85h Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $50: The Jabra Elite 85h are new noise-canceling headphones that were announced this year at CES and were only just released this past April. At launch they were $300, however, it looks like you can already get them for $50 off at Best Buy right now. By all accounts, the Jabra Elite 85h are pretty excellent noise-canceling headphones. Android Police‘s David Ruddock said they were the “best choice in ANC headphones right now,” while Billy Steele at Engadget said that the two closest competitors to the Elite 85h are the two best noise-canceling headphones, the Bose QC35 II and the Sony WH-1000XM3.

So if you need something new for the gym or just an easy pair of summer slides, don’t miss out on this sale. — John Zientek
