My new book, Get Funded!, is available now (and here’s an excerpt)


My new book, Get Funded!, is out and I’d love for you to check it out.

Get Funded! is a compendium of advice and stories about how Eric and I got funded. It’s a book for beginning entrepreneurs and our goal was to give you the tools you need to raise funds for your startup.

Timex X Todd Snyder takes you back to the cozy 1950s


The latest quartz Timex comes to you via Don Draper’s wrist. This Todd Snyder collaboration is inspired by Art Deco watch designs of yesteryear and features green lumed hands and red pips around a medico-style chapter ring.

It’s been 20 years of Edifice and it’s a new AlphaTauri Racing edition


As you’ve seen in some of our other Edifice posts, this year marks 20 years of the line existing. Well, they’re not done introducing watches for the anniversary – the latest also celebrates their continued partnership with Scuderia AlphaTauri racing team. That watch? It’s the ECB20AT-2A, AKA the Edifice X Alphatauri.

Shinola is getting out the vote with the Detrola


In case you weren’t aware (and were wondering why you saw so many “get registered” notices), today is Voter Registration Day. Shinola feels strongly about this, and are encouraging folks to get registered to vote, introducing a new Detrola to do just that.

Reviewing the new AVI-8 P-51 Mustang Chronograph


AVI-8 has a large list of cool aviation models. I have reviewed their Hawker Harrier II, their Flyboy Chronograph, and their Hawker Hunter chronograph. All have been great examples of aviation inspired watches. Just recently AVI-8 has released their P-51 Mustang Chronograph. When I saw this one I knew I had to check it out – let’s take a look.

Even if you’re not flying, the Tutima Grand Flieger Airport can

HyperFocal: 0

Or, well, at least it can pretend it can, being as they’re pilot-derived watches. Tutima is certainly no stranger to the world of pilot watches, and I’ll say theirs can buck the extreme austerity trend that many German brands can tend to follow. For the new Tutima Grand Flieger Airport models, we’ve got some heavy doses of color, and even some new ceramic bezels in the mix.

The Minder is an easy way to stay socially distant


Friend of Knapsack Jon Buford has created something pretty cool. It’s basically a little dongle that hangs around your neck and notifies you when someone gets too close. It’s called Minder and it’s crowdfunding now.

It’s hip to be square with the Rado True Square


Rado is a brand that, frankly, that suffers the burden of not being on many people’s radars, as far as I can tell. They’ve got an interesting lineup, particularly when you hone in on their use of ceramics. Not just bezel inserts, nossir, it’s the whole watch, bracelet included! While recent releases have been round, this week’s announcement has them giving some love and attention to the Rado True Square collection.

Take flight with the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Big Date


While we’ve reviewed a number of different Oris watches over the years, but I think I’ve settled into my favorite of the bunch coming from their aviation-oriented ProPilot lineup. While I find myself partial to the GMT-equipped one (reviewed here), there is very much an argument to be made for the simpler Oris Big Crown ProPilot Big Date.

Take to the skies with the new G-Shock Gravitymaster GRB200


Remember back when we reviewed the G-Shock Mudmaster? In the words of Chris Farley, “yeah, that was awesome“. Well, if you liked the abilities of that watch, but fancy yourself a pilot more, well, then the new G-Shock Gravitymaster GRB200 may fire your afterburners.
