Maple Leaf GSAR Marathon Watch Company Ltd

Marathon Maple Leaf GSAR

My favourite wrist watch this spring.  Marathon Maple Leaf GSAR.  I put the original Tissot  T-touch on the shelf and have been sporting this rugged “tool-watch” Paddle boarding and on Rappel fires in Alaska.  Limited to 500 pieces and very few available to the public, this particular style with the Maple Leaf at 1200 was commissioned for the Canadian Search and Rescue Technicians.  Hunt it down on the web.  Canadian company, manufactured in Switzerland.  I have a  Maratac Nato strap in black to keep it on.  Not the most exclusive or expensive watch out there but the best I could afford.  Completely geeking out on the GTLS tritium tube luminosity…no need to charge it with a light to see the time.  Enjoy.

Industrial Table Lamps | Gear Patrol

Over at Boston based Acquire Boutique you’ll find not only interior design that blends contemporary design with vintage styles, but also a small collection of goods that embody Acquire and its principal designer, Nikki Dalrymple’s approach. Our favorite are the Industrial Table Lamps ($145) which use Ferrowatt Bulbs to give a rich, warm ambiance. The lamps themselves are made of shesam wood with glass cylinders and nickel detailing and practically beg to be paired with illumination from Workstead Lighting. Roosevelt would have approved.
