Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.

Deep Blue Master 1000 Automatic Diver
Currently on sale for 26% off. These handsome diving watches are surprisingly affordable. They feature an automatic mechanical movement and a waterproof silicone strap. More Deep Blue watches available on sale here as well.

Cole Haan Hand-Stained Loafer
As the name suggests, these loafers are hand-stained in a strong navy color that will go with just about everything. Vulcanized rubber outsoles as well give you a comfortable and sturdy grip. On sale for 25% off.

Live Nation’s Kickoff to Summer
Since paying $12,000 for a ticket isn’t a good idea for everyone (oof) … starting today through May 9, Live Nation is offering $20 tickets to certain summer concerts. The selection here veers toward legacy acts and aging alt-rock (don’t expect any cheap-o Kendrick Lamar seats), but we found a few solid choices, including Rise Against/Deftones, Depeche Mode, Muse and Third Eye Blind (they’re doing the first album in its entirety!).

Grovemade Minimalist Belt
The Portland company just intro’d the Minimalist, which features only two components: a domestic vegetable-tanned English Bridle leather strap and a stainless steel buckle. No visible holes, no stitching, no rivets. Four styles, news at $99.

Small Duffle Bag by Filson
Need Supply has 25% off a number of great items (khakis, tees, Adidas, etc.) with the code SPRING25, but we’re most excited by the variety of great Filson bags on sale.
