While we absolutely love most aspects of the current, connected world that modern smartphones give us access to, there’s something to be said for the nostalgia of previous devices. We don’t have any desire to use an iPhone 3GS, 4S, or 5, BlackBerry Bold 9000, iPod Touch, or even the Nokia E71–because most of them wouldn’t be capable of utilizing the latest versions of our favorite apps, if they could even get on the modern networks we pay for–but we still long for the nostalgia they bring. That’s where Grid Studio Frames come in. Grid takes your favorite old school devices, breaks them down into technical specification level setups and frames them in a shadowbox so you can enjoy all your former favorites as pieces of art. These technical collages are a sight to behold and, if we’re being honest, they’re far more affordable than picking up a lightbox and attempting to do it yourself.


When it comes to watches that combine quality, design, durability and affordability, there’s no better value proposition than VAER’s C5 Field Watch. As they put it–and we agree–the rugged-yet-refined collection offers a guaranteed waterproof warranty, scratchproof sapphire crystal, USA-built Ameriquartz movement, C1 SuperLuminova, and your choice of two interchangeable straps. We hesitate throwing around the “best ever” moniker when it comes to anything, but it fits in the case of this watch. Even better, pricing starts at only $209 for quartz or $449 for automatic movements, with free US shipping and returns. What are you waiting for? Get your VAER Watch today.
