Fewer brands have a more inspired eye when it comes to honoring the past with modern designs than Lorier. The Gemini is a perfect example of this balance, with every detail a testament to their vision and interpretation of another era. The result is timeless, just as all great products should be, and it’s the reason this watch has served as our inspiration for this gift guide. Elevate your season with these thoughtful gifts, anchored by the beautiful Lorier Gemini chronograph.
Lorier Gemini Chronograph
The classic chronograph archetype is confronted with the Gemini, with a presence and personality all its own that honors the past while carving its own distinctive path. Boyed by impeccable dimensions, the Gemini sets the perfect tone on the wrist thanks to the 39mm diameter and 47mm lug to lug measurement. It won’t get in your way, but with a dial this handsome you’ll find yourself wishing it would. Dual registers create a lovely symmetry available in 3 perfectly tuned colorways. At under $500, there’s nothing to argue with, and everything to love.
Pro-ject Debut Carbon EVO Turntable
Sometimes, quality isn’t worth compromising. With the Pro-ject Debut Carbon EVO turntable, you’ll find incredible sound quality and modern styling that will amp up your living space. Featuring thermoplastic elastomer isolation and a carbon fiber tonearm, this turntable is modern and minimal in all the best ways. Like a great watch, this turntable is manual, meaning you’re a part of the process in getting it started with a flip of a switch, and guiding the tonearm over the record. With a variety of color options available, the Debut Carbon EVO turntable can be made your own.
Keith Haring Edition Polaroid Film Camera
We are spoiled for choice when it comes to great cameras these days, but we often forget the experience of taking a picture. Polaroid film cameras have long provided a wealth of personality and they take that a step further with this Keith Haring edition available through MoMa. The camera features a backing emblazoned with the late NYC based artist’s iconic imagery, and even comes with themed polaroid film cartridges to load into the camera. We don’t always need to take ourselves too seriously and this camera is a perfect reminder of why.
Deus Ex Machina Naito Chore Jacket
Nothing says cool quite like a proper chore jacket, especially if that jacket is from the arbiters of cool themselves, Deus Ex Machina. This trim jacket comes in three colors and features Naito x Deus back embroidered art from the fall capsule collection and makes for a mean companion to the Gemini – which happens to be offered in the exact same three colors. You can’t lose.
LEGO James Bond™ Aston Martin DB5
Keep your style points running high with this LEGO DB5 from the James Bond franchise, appearing in such films as Goldfinger, GoldenEye, and Skyfall. This intricately detailed take on the UK’s most famous grand tourer includes a detailed interior, an engine compartment, an ejection seat, and of course, a slew of hidden weaponry. All put together, this is one LEGO set that will class up any living space, and makes a compelling companion to appropriate wristwear from Lorier, who nails a similar vibe.
Theory 11 Hollywood Roosevelt Playing Cards
A great set of playing cards can elevate your IRL gaming experience, and if it’s a stylish set on top of that – even moreso. Theory 11 makes incredible sets of cards, and this Hollywood Roosevelt set pushes them over the top in form and function. Inspired by the iconic Hollywood institution, these cards ooze mid-century style. Their high quality construction is apparent to the touch, and offers a perfect table companion to the Lorier Gemini.
