Hands on with the Nodus Trieste diver

May 12, 2017 . by Jim Manley

Dive watches are a dime-a-dozen, and independent brands sometimes skimp on quality or originality to make a market. Not the Nodus Trieste.

May 8, 2017 . by John Biggs

I went digging recently for another minimalist wallet and boy did I find one. My old one, two pieces of titanium attached with a rubber band, was getting too old and things were falling out. I did a quick hunt and found a few very flat minimalist wallets, but nothing that seemed to be rugged…
