Designed as the first dress watch for this brand, the Shinola Bedrock 42mm Watch ($700) steps back from complicated movements to deliver minimalistic design at it's finest. Removing unnecessary clutter and delivering a watch that was made for one purpose, to tell accurate time. The Bedrock has a slim construction that sits effortlessly under tailored sleeves or alongside your golf polo. A stainless steel encases the brands signature Argonite movement which is assembled in Detroit and built to exact specifications. An uninterrupted black dial boasts simple index markers and a small seconds dial at 6 o'clock while the black Cordovan leather strap fits wrists of most sizes and shapes.
The Makkinga House ($NFS) is a private residence built by DP6 Architecture Studios. It's a beautiful representation of contemporary minimalist design. The home sits in the villages of Makkinga and Donkerbroek which are located in the Northern province of the Netherlands. The Makkinga House's use of wood and floor to ceiling glass help it fit perfectly in with the surrounding landscape. Although it is only 1300 square feet in size, it meets the homeowners requirements perfectly.
Every guy I know has a favorite beer drinking glass, whether it's a classic German Beer Stein or an Irish pint glass for their favorite stout. We all have a go to when the suds start pouring. The gents over at Northern Drinkware want their Oregon Pint Glass ($35) to be your new favorite. Their first product is 100% made in America and custom blown with a 3D rendering of Oregon's highest peak at 11,250 feet, molded into the base. They've got a Kickstarter campaign going on right now to fund the project. So if you're in the market for a new favorite beer glass, check out the Oregon Pint Glass.

We at Muted love a good, practical, well-made wallet and it looks like the guys over at Ball and Buck share that same conviction. They're currently running a very successful Kickstarter to bring Ball and Buck's Perfect Wallet ($48) to market. The Perfect Wallet uses leather from the same tannery that supplies the Red Wing shoe company. It is extremely thin and durable and has 4 card slots to hold up to 8 cards. It also has a hidden cash slot in the middle. The Perfect wallet comes in Tan, Red Maple, Brown and Black.
