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
Seiko SNN241 Chronograph
Save 54%: This chrono features a larger 42.6mm steel case with a Japanese quartz movement powering two sub-dials — a 60-minute counter at 12 o’clock, and a running seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, as well as a date window. The SNN241 has a brown dial with Hardlex crystal and a matching contrast-stiched brown leather band with double-locking clasp. It’s also water-resistant to 100m, so while it’s splash-proof, it’s best to switch to a trusty dive watch for serious water sports. — Oren Hartov
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.

Save 50%: With its distinctive angular case and legible dial, the Seiko “Samurai” is one of the Japanese brand’s most popular families within its Prospex sport watch line. This version has a popping dial in bright orange, perfect to brighten up your wrist — and capable enough for even the roughest or wettest activities this summer with 200m of water-resistance. It’s got a Seiko automatic movement inside and measures a bold 44mm. Considered a strong value even at its retail price of $525, right now the Seiko “Samurai” SRPC07 is on sale for half off at Amazon for just $262. You won’t find it for much less. — Zen Love
