Back in the day, back before divorce number one, I used to collect high end watches. Gone. All gone. Sitting on my wrist: a Seiko chronograph. Which I love. A horological passion most millennials mistake for something sex industry related or dismiss with a casual wave of their smartphone. In 31-year-old Nathan Ruest’s everydaycarry.com pocket dump above . . .
The man’s displaying a carbon fiber-faced Movado Gravity watch. It’s a bastardization of the original Movado Museum watch (sigh) but I applaud the everyday carry guy for wearing it.
The way I look at it, the ability to tell the time, discreetly, at a glance, can come in handy before, during and after a defensive gun use.
That’s a funny noise. What time is it? How long have I been waiting for the police? Sir, what time did the attack start? Like that.
Keep in mind that it’s almost impossible to measure time during a defensive gun use adrenaline dump. Time slows down. Time speeds up.
By the same token, it’s exceedingly difficult to get out your phone quickly and efficiently and read the teeny tiny little digital time display when your heart starts beating like a big brass band.
Got watch? Which one?
