Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

A Stunning Pilot's Watch We Probably Can't Afford

Glashuette

The Senator Navigator Perpetual Calendar by Glashütte Original absolutely nails the retromodern look. The 44mm stainless steel case houses a traditional pilot's watch that looks like it should soar on the wrist of a battle-hardened WWII ace. The black dial features bold Arabic numerals that can be read at a glance, and the hour numerals and hands are inlaid with gobs of mysterious luminescent stuff.

Glow, baby, glow!

The Caliber 100-07 automatic movement provides a 55 hour reserve, ample for even the longest sortie (or for those evenings you carelessly fling your timepiece onto Mata Hari's sidetable). Glashütte Original even includes a leap year indicator on the face. A reset mechanism allows you to easily synchronize the second hand to a time standard without stopping the movement.
