It's in the details

It’s the little things that go a long way. A well chosen pair of glasses or watch can become your signature.

Built for speed

“These things were made so well that no matter what was thrown at them they bounced right back.”

Crafted tools with history deserve a place on the table. Items like flasks and barware are equal parts attractive and functional.

Point of interest

“Complicated in some regards and simple in others.” Vintage cameras are technical wonders. Their mechanics are so intricate they rival the attention of the photos they create.
