My everyday carry
(I usually carry a flashlight but lost it a few weeks ago and have not been looking for a new one yet. This needs to change. I would also almost call my iPad Air an EDC but it’s mostly traveling between my car and my home office.)
Obviously there are a few other things I need every day, like a charging cable and headphones for my phone, keys, a ballpen and a wallet for money/cards/drivers license. Of course as a craftsman I need many other tools but all these things are either not always *with me* or always located in the car.
Watches are an integral part of many everyday carry setups. Beyond their primary use of telling time, they’re also a reflection the wearer’s personality and style. These watches have rich historical appeal as they were made for and worn in the field by infantry, Special Forces, and WWII pilots. Nowadays, military style watches are popular amongst the EDC community for their features, legibility, durability, and aesthetic. They go hand in hand with tactical gear you might already be carrying, but can easily be dressed down due to their timeless designs. In this guide, we’ll show you our recommendations for good looking, rugged watches that won’t break the bank.
