This timepiece's simple good looks belies a lot happening under the surface. Inspired by Detroit's sign painters, the Mechanic watch features a domed dial, box crystal, curved hands and a toothy crown for easy winding. And speaking of which, this is the brand's first foray into hand-wound watches. The intricate movements inside have raised the price, but like the hand-painted signs it's influenced by, it's a worthy cost for old world craftsmanship that will last a lifetime.

I want to personally thank Soft Services for this innovative product. Because I'm both lazy and forgetful, so I never remember to moisturize my hands before bed—which is really the perfect time to take care of callouses and neglected cuticles. But I'm also too aesthetically minded to just let a bottle of hand lotion sit out on my nightstand. This clever vessel looks like a piece of pottery, but pull the magnetized top off and it reveals a secret pump—press down and it dispenses the perfect serving of lotion to rub in before you crash. The rich formula coats hands and gets to work softening and conditioning the skin so you wake up with noticeably improved hands. When you're done, you simply swap out the tub of cream inside and start over.

We're all about this transatlantic collaboration. Venerable American athletic icon, Champion, has teamed up with the British brand Percival on a range of embroidered sportswear. From classic crewneck sweatshirts and T-shirts to hoodies and sweatpants, the 32-piece collection features classic Champion reverse-weave styles embellished with nature-inspired embroidery—all hand-stitched in London. It's quirky yet subtle, but the limited-edition pieces won't last long.

There's a lot to like about Spitfire shades. They're an independent brand making stylish sunglasses for reasonable prices. The vintage-influenced frames are cut from quality cellulose block acetate and hand polished. The screw and double-barrel hinges are Teflon coated for ultimate durability and the anti-reflective lenses comes with premium UV protection. Plus, they're lightweight and comfortable too. Really, what more can you ask for?

You can't cook with bourbon as much as you like. I get it. But now you can improve a range of meals at home with a few shakes of this tasty small-batch spice blend from Spiceology. Inspired by the carefully layered flavors of Maker's Mark 46, the complex flavor is a result of chef-picked herbs, spices and dried vegetables in a truly unique combination. Honey granules and dehydrated carrot and orange peel adds a touch of sweetness to the heat of three different chili peppers and smoked paprika, grounded with a touch of cocoa and pumpkin. Use it as a spice rub for meats or simply sprinkle on top of popcorn or roasted potatoes for a serious shot of flavor.
