One of the three variants is this steel-cased version with blue LED. Featuring a day-date display and well as dual time zones and water-resistant to 30m, this re-issue with its matching bracelet brings back an awesome, futuristic look from the 1970s, reimagined in a unique colorway.

Refurbished Dyson Vacuums
Save Up to 80%: No matter what, the latest Dyson will always be the best Dyson. Generation to generation, the brand consistently iterates and improves on its product for the next release. That said, the latest Dyson typically costs well over $500 (at present, the current release is $700). That’s where deals like this Ebay Dyson event come in.

The sale adds an additional 20 percent discount to a pile of past-gen, manufacturer refurbs already marked down more than 60 percent off (use code JOY4DYSON at checkout). Choice picks include the cordless V6 and Cinetic Big Ball (both released just four years ago) vacuums, which are both more than 80 percent off full retail with the sale code applied. If you’re wary of used products, Dyson says machines sold through its refurbishment program have been tested to meet “like-new performance standards” and that products may arrive with scratches or other imperfections that don’t impact performance. — Will Price
