Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 Mirrorless Camera

"Tiny cameras usually have tiny sensors. A camera that fits comfortably in your pocket almost never has interchangeable lenses. The pint-sized Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1 breaks both of those rules, packing the same 16-megapixel Micro Four-Thirds sensor and processing engine as the higher-end Lumix GX7 in a body that’s just 1.2-inches deep. That makes it smaller than the Sony RX100, but with swappable lenses and a bigger sensor."

Tommy Hilfiger Military Men's Watch 1790772

"We were marvelling at the fact that Tommy Hilfiger was selling decent watches from $150 - but now the powerhouse fashion brand is doing one for even less. We like the military-style 1790772, with its khaki-coloured rubber strap. It should be standard operational equipment for every Tommy."
