Time Concepts Releases New ICON Signature Series Watch Inspired by American Motorcycle Legend, Roland Sands

With all of this time at home, Dad will be more than ready for a special gift on Father’s Day. I wanted to let you know about a new signature series watch inspired by motorcycle legend, Roland Sands.

Sands’ namesake watch is meant to reflect his zeal for racing and love for the motorcycling community and would be a great gift idea for Dad…even if he’s not into racing. The watch is rugged, tough, and dependable (just like Dad), crafted with a satin brushed stainless case with screw case back, a scratch resistant mineral crystal, and 100 meters water resistance.  The strap is made of USA-sourced Horween leather,famous for its beauty and durability.

Latest Icon Series Watch Designed to Exemplify Sands’ Legacy of Racing

Time Concepts, a watch firm known for making high-quality timepieces at remarkably affordable prices, has officially launched its newest series of watches under the Szanto brand, the Szanto ICON Roland Sands Signature Series.

Roland Sands is an American motorcycle racer and designer of custom high-performance motorcycles. In his career as a professional motorcycle racer he won the 1998 AMA 250GP National Champion road racer championship, and today is also an award-winning designer of custom performance motorcycles.  As the owner and founder of Roland Sands Designs, a company that sells custom motorcycle parts, he is known for unique designs and has developed a cult following around the world.

Sands’ namesake watch is meant to reflect his zeal for racing and love for the motorcycling community. His ICON watch was designed with Roland involved in all design details. “The unique watch design is meant to invoke the feeling of instruments on a bike and reflects his individualism, as is seen in his motorcycle creations, and exhibits a very vintage character,” said Time Concepts Founder Barry Cohen. “Roland was instrumental in the overall design of his watch series.  We’re eager to share it with his fans.”

The watch is rugged, tough, and dependable, crafted with a satin brushed stainless case with screw case back, a scratch resistant mineral crystal, and 100 meters water resistance.  The strap is made of USA-sourced Horween leather, famous for its beauty and durability – it will quickly pick up the look of well-worn motorcycle boots and jackets and take on a vintage patina adding more character the longer it is worn.  The straps feature easy on/off fingernail pull spring pins to allow for strap changes in a matter of seconds. However, the most impressive aspect of the design is raised padded ribs on the strap that emulate the beautiful stitch treatments seen on Roland’s signature jackets that are revered and collected all over the world.

The Szanto ICON Signature Series are small collections of watches tied to famous individuals who have made their mark in a variety of fields. Time Concepts’ ICONs are masters of their respective crafts and all share an appreciation and affinity for quality timepieces. Other industry leaders in the ICON series include Indy Series and Indy 500 Champion Danny Sullivan, and renowned big-wave surfer, Shane Dorian, both of whom also worked closely with Time Concepts to define, design and develop a timepiece that connects to their respective styles and personalities, all while maintaining the Szanto commitment to excellence. In this way, ICON watches reflect the tastes and interests of the people who inspired them.

“I’m honored to partner with Time Concepts on the design and introduction of the Roland Sands Icon Watch,” said Sands. “The resulting watch is a timepiece that embodies the love and passion that I have for racing, the motorcycling community and innovative design.”

Szanto ICON Signature Series: Roland Sands watches retail for $225 and are available for purchase online at timeconcepts.net.

The Fishing Caddy, the world’s first all-in-one fishing system, offers up tips on creating a memorable fishing trip

June 16 is Father’s Day,
making it the perfect time to start planning
a fun and memorable fishing trip for dad and/or grandpa.

The Outdoor Foundation reports that around 46 million Americans participate in fishing. Most fathers would be thrilled to be surprised with a special fishing trip weekend to celebrate the day in their honor. The good news is that planning a special fishing trip without dad knowing about it is not that difficult.

“It doesn’t get much better than surprising dad with a family fishing trip for Father’s Day,” explains Joe Pippins, creator and founder of The Fishing Caddy. “Not only will it be something he doesn’t expect, but it will be something he loves doing, and it will create some great family memories.”

When it comes to planning a special fishing trip for the holiday, there are a few things to keep in mind. Here are some tips to help create a perfect family fishing trip surprise:

  • Determine the perfect location. Try to surprise dad by taking him somewhere new. Ask around to get some suggestions on great fishing locations. Narrow down where you will go and decide if you want to make it a one-dayfishing trip, where you will be back home that night, or if you want to stay the night in a hotel or campground.
  • Check the regulations. While the regulation part of fishing is no fun, it’s something you don’t want to slow you down once you get to your destination. Find out what the regulations are and what you will need to be able to enjoy your day.
  • Keep it simple. When things get complicated it takes some of the fun away. Strive for planning a stress free trip with an emphasis on fun. Ask the kids to pitch in and do all they can to share in helping to get everything ready for the trip.
  • Take a camera. Take a good camera with you, even if you have to borrow one, so that you can get some good pictures. Those pictures can later be used to create special keepsakes from the trip, including framing a picture for dad’s office or having a wallet size photo made that he can carry with him.
  • Leave the other electronics behind. Rather than keep faces staring at the phone, opt to have family members not take their devices. If you are not comfortable with that idea, designate an hour per day when they can be used, and have them be off limits the rest of the time. To make a memorable family fishing trip, people need to look up and enjoy the people they are with.
  • Gear up. You will need to take along basic fishing gear, but you can help make the process easier by taking The FishingCaddy, which can be part of the surprise. Giving dad The Fishing Caddy for a Father’s Day gift will help ensure the trip is less stressful and he will enjoy it more, because it’s been designed for organization and to improve the anglers’ experience. The caddy is the world’ first all-in-one fishing system, offering a padded seat top or tackle box lid, a built-in cup holder, a life well for the fish caught, two rod holders, LED lights, and more. The water weight prevents it from tipping over, making a great piece of gear for sharing with a family that loves the outdoors.

“In addition to these things for creating a great fishing trip, you also need a great attitude,” added Pippins. “It’s hard to have a bad day when you are fishing. Start planning now and you can make this the best Father’s Day yet.”

The Fishing Caddy, which ranges in price from $69.95 to $129, was expertly designed for all types of fishing, and can be used by anglers of all ages. The organization system gives people everything they need for a great fishing experience. The fishing system has been designed to help make fishing more enjoyable, and give people more time to fish, rather than track down and organize their tackle and supplies. The Fishing Caddy is available online at Amazon, at select Scheels locations, Etsy, and at the company website: https://thefishingcaddy.com.

Like a golf caddy helps the golfer adjust to different weather and terrain conditions, the Fishing Caddy helps you maximize your fishing strategy. It helps you notice bites quicker and catch more fish with less stress. It combines five functions into one easy device that comes in three sizes for the whole family: XL (6.5 gallons), L (5.5 gallons), and Mini (3.5 gallons).

By holding your fishing rods with the Fishing Caddy as opposed to a “traditional” metal rod holder, not only do you have it all built-in, it’s right at your fingertips as opposed to yards away. When you get a bite, you know you’ll make it to your rods in time. Stop missing bites wasting bait and time fishing the “old” way. Make each cast count – fish smarter, not harder! You can even sit on top of the caddy, which allows you to actually feel when the fish take your bait.

Think of the Fishing Caddy as your Swiss Army knife for fishing. It’s a one stop shop combining a host of essential tools for fishing and camping in one lightweight product. Reduce clutter and enhance your fishing experience.

Some say fishing is just a man’s sport. Well, The Fishing Caddy disagrees. The Fishing Caddy believes that fishing is a great way for generations of families to come together and enjoy the simple things in life. So they designed the Fishing Caddy with men, women, and children in mind so that every member of the family has the perfect Fishing Caddy ready to assist them and improve their fishing ability.

I do feel The Fishing Caddy is a perfect gift for Father’s Day because my father, my father-in-law, and even my husband, all of them enjoy fishing and also keep looking for nice fishing tools for their hobby. I got this lovely Fishing Caddy for my husband for his birthday. He was so surprised how it works in an awesome new way. You should also get your fishing lover father or husband a Fishing Caddy and go fishing with them together. You will definitely feel more fun than a traditional fishing tour.

About The Fishing Caddy

The Fishing Caddy is the world’s first all-in-one fishing system. Created by Joe Pippins, the caddy offers anglers an easy and simplified way to head out fishing. Features on the caddy include two rod holders, a cup holder, live well for storing fish, tackle box, and a padded seat option. The Fishing Caddy is made in the USA and comes with a two-year warranty.

Blue leads 2.5 m euro investment round in world’s first premium sunglasses made from 100-percent recycled materials

Spring is coming. We are all waiting for the time when the weather gets warm. Yes, March is almost here, sun comes out more and more. We love spending time in parks and beaches when it’s warm and sunny. But one thing we never can ignore. We need a great sunglass for the protection of our eyes.

Blue, a Stockholm-based investment company that serves as a catalyst for sustainability-driven innovation, has invested 1.25m euro in sustainability-driven Chilean eyewear maker Karün, which turns reclaimed materials such as fishing nets into premium, high-quality sunglassesKarün sunglasses have already caught the attention of world top sporting celebrities such as top Chilean surfer Ramón Navarro as well as organizations like the Volvo Ocean Race.

The Blue investment, which is part of the total 2.5m investment round including investors such as Luna, an investment organization founded by Lucy Ana Walton, is designed to significantly strengthen Karün’s fast-track global brand building and development of a number of new product lines, marketing and organization in new markets around the world.

“Karün shows how entrepreneurs can embed environmental concerns into their business vision as it trailblazes the integration of green practices into its material sourcing and manufacturing that reflect the humanity of its founders and management team,” said Blue co-founder and CEO, Anders Jacobson.

He notes that lost or abandoned plastic fishing gear comprises 10 percent of all the plastic waste in the sea, ensnaring marine wildlife and ultimately destined to break down into micro plastic particles that will enter the human food and water chain to threaten the future health and wellbeing of every inhabitant on the planet.

“Karün sunglasses are symbols of the change we want to see happening in the world by making a positive impact on the environment and local communities,” said Thomas Kimber, founder and CEO.

Mr. Kimber said his company’s eyewear are beautiful products designed and sourced in Patagonia and made in Italy with the aim to directly contribute to protecting the environment by turning reclaimed noble and natural materials into positive products and by creating a source of income for micro-entrepreneurs in Patagonia.

“We are enabling small-scale business people to scale their sustainable businesses and create economic opportunities empowering their own communities,” said Thomas Kimber.

“Instead of a linear and extractive production process – which is used by most companies in the world – Karün is building our entire value chain under a circular and regenerative model designed to help restore natural ecosystems and local economies, he added.”

Anders Jacobson said Karün sets an exemplary example of circular economy thinking by up-cycling discarded materials backback into highly desirable new high value products.

Karün’s approach helped the company become the official sunglass supplier to the recently concluded Volvo Ocean Race. Its frames became the top choice for many of the sailors who raced around the world, such as Martin Strömberg, Mark Towill and Charlie Enright.

Blue today owns companies such as Bluewater, a world leader in drinking water technologies and solutions, and is investing in a growing portfolio of game-changing companies, including ClimeonBaseload CapitalSave by Solar and Visiba Care.

“Karün are change-makers who are demonstrating it is possible to solve the problems facing theplanet and humanity in sustainable ways,” Mr Jacobson said.

Karün can be a great gift choice for anyone. I chose a Polarised Grey Blue Sky Mirror from Pacific Collection for my husband Ryan as a Valentine’s Day gift. He immediately fell in love with it when he saw it. And now he wears it everyday. I will say Karün can be also a good Birthday gift, no matter for your love, your friends, or your dad. Especially for someone who cares about the earth, this is definitely a perfect gift choice.

About Karün

Based in Puerto Varas, Patagonia, Chile, Karün is a Chilean B corp that makes sunglasses as a tool to inspire people into looking at the world from a different point of view; one in which we are all nature. They create high quality eyewear, made under a very different way; using reclaimed, natural and noble materials while working alongside local communities in Patagonia. www.karunworld.com
