To kick off the launch of Uncrate Issue 05 and the return of our favorite not-smartphone, the Punkt MP02, we've partnered with Punkt, Grand Classics, and Mark Ronson to host a VIP screening of 1983's The King of Comedy, staring Robert De Niro. Personally selected by Mark Ronson, the film is a timely choice given its direct influence on this month's release of Joker, and as De Niro also appears in Joker as homage to his character in The King of Comedy. On October 16th at the Public Arts venue, at New York's Public Hotel, a select group of guests and friends of Mark Ronson, Punkt, Grand Classics, and Uncrate gathered for the screening and cocktails. Punkt, maker's of minimalist technology, chose to partner with Grand Classics on this screening due the increasingly frustrating effect of smartphones on the film community. Often used to snap pictures that leak a film's plot details well before release, smartphones have become a drag on sets around the world. Punkt's MP02 phone, a camera-less work of art, fixes not only this issue but allows anyone to disconnect from the distracting while remaining connected via a good old fashioned phone call or basic text message. Animoji's need not apply.
For Issue 05, we gathered ten of the world's best Barn Finds, ten of the most interesting caviar-and-potato chip pairings, three spectacular places to stay in Italy, and thirty stunning objects of desire.

The Movember Foundation has been raising money for men's physical and mental health issues since 2003, using the power of community to help spread awareness. Now they're teaming with Swiss watchmaker Oris and Yankees manager Aaron Boone — someone who knows a thing or two about the power of a team — on the Movember Edition watch. Based on Oris' iconic Chronoris model, it has a 39mm stainless steel case and a black dial with rose gold-plated hour and minute hands. It also features an orange second hand, and white indices that come together to create a pleasing vintage feel. An Oris 733 automatic movement powers the timepiece, which arrives on either a brown leather strap with a Movember signature mustache imprint or a stainless steel bracelet. It's packaged in a special presentation box with a leather travel pouch and a more casual red and white NATO fabric strap — a perfect bonus for those who know the importance of getting out and spending time in their community.
