Dave writes, “I’ve been carrying this .45 daily for many years now. I declare it on most flights and travel with it most everywhere. I feel naked when I have leave it behind especially for international travel. The other items change periodically or as needed based on circumstances but this is a typical EDC dump when I arrive home.” See the details at Everyday Carry . . .

    • The watch is upsidedown in the image but after expanding the image it seems that it’s a older Victorinox or a knockoff. Unless some other company stole the logo.

      Maybe an older Maverick. Looks like a non-chrono Maverick to some extent.

  1. I don’t know all the Rolex models through all the years, but the bracelet , lugs, bezel, face, markers and hands sure don’t look like one to me .

  2. Why does anyone wear a watch anymore? There is a timepiece on your cell phone, the dash display of your car, the train platform…

    • I wear a watch, a Rolex submariner in fact. Something as simple as a hard rain might destroy my phone, and all of us don’t spend all of our time behind the wheel of a car or in cities where there are clocks everywhere. I’ll admit that my watch is as much an expression of style and taste as is it a useful tool, but for all that, it’s usefulness as a tool is not diminished.

      Something like a sub also has the advantages of being waterproof to depths I hope to never achieve, being self-winding and capable of continuing its operation for longer than my body ever will, and being likely more impact resistant than my arm is. If all else fails, I can tell the time of day, the date, monitor elapse time, and perform basic navigation, even after a nasty crash, deep submersion, or having been stranded without electricity for an extended period, and look good doing it. In a pinch I might even be able to trade or sell it for deliverance back to safety.

    • I wear a watch because I’m not a pocket watch kind of guy. Which is effectively what your cell phone is, we’ve just come full circle.

    • A water resistant watch is easier to clean blood and other bodily fluids off of. And it doesn’t battery drain like my phone in rural areas.

      Remember, your life isn’t an insular bubble. If it was, we’d all agree on every Presidential candidate, law, lifestyle choice….
