Today in Gear: A New Diver From Panerai, Inexpensive Grill Upgrades For Cooking Out and More

The best way to catch up on the day’s most important product releases and stories.



We’ve made some new adjustments to Today in Gear, including a new publishing time of 4 p.m. in order to capture all the day’s new stories. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.


The Panerai Luminor — derived from the divers the watchmaker built for the Italian Royal Navy back in the 20th century — is an icon in its own right. But not willing to rest on its laurels, Panerai has continued the evolution of the Luminor. This watch has all the features and specifications you’d want from a modern diver while still delivering the classic looks of the original Luminor. Better still, it’s done so using a cutting-edge material, placing it ahead of the pack regarding watchmaking tech.

Like the rest of the Submersible lineup, the Luminor Submersible 1950 Carbotech 3 Days is an update on the original Luminor design, featuring a legible dial, a rotating diver’s bezel and a case with a 300-meter depth rating. That case, though, is made from a material Panerai dubs Carbotech. It’s a composite material made from thin sheets of carbon fiber that are compressed at a controlled temperature under high pressure and never before used in the world of watchmaking. The result is a durable material with a unique matte black finish that’s lighter than ceramic or titanium and strong enough to protect an in-house automatic movement with a whopping three-day power reserve.

Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 53 Compression
Save $295: Back in 1953, Zodiac debuted the Super Sea Wolf alongside the Rolex Submariner and Blancpain Fifty-Fathoms, making it one of the first modern dive watches ever built. Today, Zodiac still makes the watch, and compared to the competition it’s a decidedly more affordable option with a $1,195 MSRP (it’s also one of our favorite summertime divers). For that, you get a 200-meter depth rating, an automatic movement and a handsome vintage design that’s not very far off the original. Right now, though, Huckberry is offering a $295 markdown from MSRP, meaning you can get this slick vintage-style diver for just $900. Two references are available: one in black and another in a very summer-appropriate blue. — Andrew Connor

Outdoor and Patio Furniture
Save Up to 65%: If you are a person who needs outdoor furniture not to show off your taste in quality or design, but for the express purpose of having a place to sit when the temperature is right, Wayfair’s July 4th Blowout is the sale for you. Your priorities are more in line with naps on a cushy couch than the quality of furniture in your patio and outdoor space, I get it, so feast on 65 percent off a slew of already affordable outdoor setups, including a stupidly cheap rust-proof aluminum dining setup. — Will Price

Rubber & NATO Straps
Save Up to 70%: With summer upon us, rubber and nylon straps become a nice alternative to heavy steel bracelets – they’re cheap, they’re made for all kinds of adverse (and wet) conditions, and they’re generally inexpensive. CheapestNatoStraps.com, a company selling all different types of watch straps including leather, NATO and rubber and based in Stockholm, Sweden, is running a clearance sale that includes some very summer-appropriate, vintage-inspired straps and bands at 30-70% off. Though their standard “20% off 5 or more straps”-discount doesn’t apply to clearance items, it certainly applies to the rest of their inventory, and since shipping is free on orders of $25 or more, it’s worth poking around the rest of their website – even their full-price straps are a bargain. — Oren Hartov

The North Face Gear You’ve Always Wanted Is Now on Sale
