Global Chef’s Knife

Waterford Old Fashioned Set
Save $150: Waterford, named after its hometown of Waterford, Ireland, has been making fine crystal goods for the home since 1783. Its collections, of which there are many, typically run quite expensive.

Launched in 1991, its Marquise collection is markedly less so. Today, the Marquise Collection’s Brady decanter and two Old Fashioned glasses is marked down to $100 from its usual $250 price tag. — Will Price

Alternative Apparel Champ Sweater
Save 50%: Alternative Apparel makes some of the most comfortable sweatshirts from a unique fabric called Eco-Fleece. The tri-blend fleece is made with recycled polyester, organic cotton and a touch of rayon so it’s as much a responsible purchase as it is a cozy one. Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save 50 percent on the Champ sweatshirt, a classic crew-neck sweater with raglan sleeves. Available in sizes XS to XXXL, it costs just $27 — hard to find fault with that. — John Zientek

Seiko SRP605K2
Save $195: Do you enjoy breathing compressed gas mixtures whilst waving at sea turtles underwater, perhaps expecting them to wave back at you? Do you hate the idea of replacing batteries on your quartz watch, but hate the idea of spending lots of money on a fancy automatic watch even more? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then this Seiko 5 could be the watch for you.

The Seiko 5 line delivers an almost absurd amount of value into incredibly affordable watches, of which the SRP605K2 is a prime example. You get a Seiko 4R36 21-jewel automatic movement that beats at 21,600 bph and features a 40-hour power reserve, a 44mm stainless steel case, Hardlex crystal, display case back, unidirectional rotating bezel, day-date display, and 100m of water resistance, all for $150 on Massdrop. Designed specifically for diving, the SRP605K2 also gives you a rubber accordion strap and shrouded crown with knurling for easy grip. While 44mm is certainly on the larger side for a watch case, on a dive watch the extra size should give you some added visibility under water.
