    Looks great! I don’t have that much money to spend on a watch, but I like the Sinn 556 watches. No frills and small enough for a woman. I don’t like most women’s watches, they’re just ugly. At the moment I’m wearing a Junkers watch daily (the poor man’s Junghans). When I travel I always wear my Casio F91W, practical and so inexpensive that I don’t need to worry about it. And I kind of dig it in a certain retro way (but then I probably had too much contact with Berlin hipsters). Especially paired with floral sundresses... Wink

    Alright! a few other watch nerds here! @Bihnbag, yes those are Sinn straps that I bought the full size deployant clasp for, which I really like even though i have a smaller wrist. I also have the red (see below). Your SM is, of course, awesome, and it's funny you mention the Fenix because I'm thinking on an Instinct or F6, but probably after the holidays.

    @B1gsky, holy moly, German watch fan! I love Junkers and also Casio! I'm thinking on a g-shock or Protrek soon ... that said, I keep going back to the German brands as there's just something I love there.

    Hereís my Junkers:

    Brands and Stuff That You Love (Emphasis on Quality)-be34ff08-bb2c-42aa-939b-0eb734b8364a-jpeg

    Itís a great everyday watch for me, especially because I can wear both silver and gold jewellery with it. But Iím definitely looking for another more sporty watch as an alternative , and also maybe something with an automatic or hand wind movement. But I havenít found the right watch yet. I definitely canít imagine going without a watch, I always wear one when Iím out and about.

    My watch collection so far. I think we have enough to warrant a push to get a TB travel watch case made? Brands and Stuff That You Love (Emphasis on Quality)

    I was thinking of buying scraps and making a band or something. But lack of the skills to do anything good.

    I recently came across recommendations for the NiteIze Quickstand. It's a credit card-sized stand that is compatible with most phones and tablets. I wasn't super convinced of its efficacy but it's low price (found mine for $9 at REI https://tinyurl.com/w4eb9sk) and local availability pushed me to try it. Totally love it. It's tiny, actually the size of a credit card so it's always at hand. Stable. Lightweight. Lots of angles and useful in both portrait and landscape mode.

    When I bring my Logitech Keys-to-go I can pretty much leave my laptop at home or the office and have all the comfort of full keyboard typing. You can get up to 3 months between charges (Based on 2 hours average usage per day) says the product description. In my experience with light use I've gotten nearly a year's use with a single charge and light, occasional usage.

    Good brands: Patagonia (jackets, fleeces and capilene t-shirts), Arc'teryx (coats, fleeces), Stance (socks and t-shirts), Supernatural (merino wool t-shirts), Lululemon (trousers fit really well, free hemming; and the silver tech t-shirts are good as well), On Running (shoes), Hoka One One (shoes) EDIT oo and Alex Mill: wonderful basics and pieces that will last forever. & Tracksmith: best brand I've ever found for running gear because they're ridiculously comfortable and long-lasting.

    Bad/not great brands: Smartwool (t-shirts and socks; they just lost shape and didn't meet my expectations), Allbirds (shoes; really hurt my heels, wanted to love them, but just can't), Organic Basics (again, wanted to love them, but I feel as though their products were over-priced and did not fit well at all).

    Finally, just a quick caveat for people wanting to be more sustainable, especially to do with animal welfare, more specifically to do with down products. Try to source sustainably, specifically through RDS (Responsible Down Standard): this does still mean that animals die, it just means it is done ethically (no live plucking etc.), if you want a down alternative, then go synthetic (Patagonia and Arc'teryx make great jackets: Micro-puff and Atom LT respectively), you still get the micro plastics and everything, but it's about weighing up everything and what you're more happy with.
