There are plenty of impressive portable speakers out there if you’re looking to enjoy your music beyond your headphones. But if you’re looking for bigger sound and a thumping base it helps to go with something a little bigger.

The 808 HEX TL offers a great option as it’s a little bigger than many of the portables out there but is still manageable in size. More importantly, the sound is impressive and can power a small party or gathering. It’s also extremely flexible as it has Bluetooth capability and provides two power options with an AC power adapter or batteries for up to 12 hours of portable listening.

I tried out the new Wellie boot from The Original Muck Boot Company and came away impressed with the comfort and styling.

This is a functional work boot that also looks stylish as well.

The Wellie comes in brown as pictured above along with black and wheat colors. The Crazy Horse full grain leather is soft and attractive, making the Wellie a boot you can wear out with jeans or casual pants as well.

  

Product Review: Barrington Single Watch Winder

The Black Barrington Watch Winder Was As Smooth As It Is Functional

When you’re young, you want a great timepiece. But what you don’t realize is that in having a great watch, you also have to invest time maintaining it. Though they are never referenced in rap videos or on red carpets, a quality watch winder is key to extending the life of your watch and ensuring optimum performance.

Adult sensibilities aren’t sexy, but damn it, they win out if you’re doing it right. Once you drop some coin on a watch, keeping it wound is essential. A watch winder is used to keep automatic or self-winding watches running when not worn.

So, how does a watch winder from Barrington work?

Automatic watches operate by winding themselves using a moving weight inside the watch. The weight moves around while the watch is worn and turns the winding mechanism inside the watch.

The winder from Barrington operates on a basis of gentle rotation to wind watches.

Older generation watch winders were programmed to be always on (i.e. rotating without a pause) in an effort to wind the watch as quickly as possible. This can lead to over-winding of a watch and potential damage to the main spring. Gentle rotation ensures a consistent movement over a longer period of time that won’t over-wind your watch.

When initially turned on, the Barrington rotor turns for 1 minute before pausing. The length of the pause is determined by the Turns Per Day setting (a lower TPD setting will mean a longer pause and vice versa) and once it is completed the rotor turns again for just one minute. This cycle continues silently for 12 hours, then rests for 12 hours, before beginning again and so on until the winder is turned off.
