This Old-Timey Weather Station Is Perfectly Designed And Pointlessly Awesome

Another good one from Best Made Company.

The guys over at Best Made Company are known for their stellar design and minimal but outdoor-focused looks. Their latest gizmo is something that's no longer an essential in a land with iPhone apps, but that doesn't take away from its charming cool factor and usefulness when exploring areas without a bar of LTE. 

Basically, this brass-cased weather station contains both a thermometer and hygrometer that together indicate the comfort level outside. It's done in a tongue-in-cheek way that's loaded with style. 

There are probably better ways to drop $172, but sometimes, you just have to buy something beautiful because it connects with you. Life it too short to be entirely practical.
