  1. I usually carry knife for EDC since it might be illegal. However I carry a flashlight, watch, keys, muti-tool

    • I find it unsettling to carry knives in some instances but I always have a wallet and key knife.

    • just don’t flash it around and you won’t get into trouble

  2. Hi, my EDC now only consist only of a Seiko SKX007, my iPhone and a leather wallet. I think the stuff you are giving away would complement my EDC well.

    • Jelly of that seiko skx007…

    • The SKX007’s are a great design, aren’t they? I’ve been deciding between that one and the 009.

  3. My edc, i carry an emerson daily! Have a seiko sbdc003 on the wrist, an a flipsife wallet and of course my phone.

  4. I carry regular TIMEX and CRKT folder, phone and wallet.

    • Crkt makes awesome knives man. Try an m16

  5. My every day carry consists of a cheap buck knife, a tumi wallet, and a lanyard with my keys on it. Sadly I don’t own any watches yet but I’m planing on getting a few.

    • Start out with a gshock. They’re built like a tank and pretty affordable

  6. I don’t carry much just a basic multi tool in the style of a butterfly knife, my keys with awesome Batman and Superman designs, phone and a basic old watch from Fossil

    • Gotta love Batman and Superman! Looking forward to their movie next year.

  7. I own several knives, watches, and other EDC items but I tend to carry the same items daily. Below are my average EDC items.

    Watch: Casio MDV-106 with NATO “Bond” strap. This watch has a lot of sentimental value to me but it’s also one of my least expensive watches. It takes a beating and has survived several trips into the water with a WR of 200m.

    Knife: Kershaw Emerson CQC-3k. I love the wave feature on knives and I find myself using this knife a lot. The wave feature makes it easy to open and the one I own has been “broken-in” enough that it’s almost buttery smooth. The edge has been reprofiled to less obtuse and the edge now has a mirror finish.

    Knife 2: On my keyring I carry a Victorinox Tomo. My favorite part of this knife is the scissors.

    Pry tool: Gerber Shard. Cheap. I love the screwdriver on it. It fits my Lansky sharpening system perfectly.

    Wallet: I carry a “business-card-wallet” that has held up for several years and I bought it from a small leather-worker.

    Money Clip: Koolstof money clip. Best money clip ever made.

    Flashlight: Fenix E15. I have owned several flashlights and this is the brightest and in the smallest package I have found. This flashlight takes a beating.

    Keyring: Nite Ize Ahhh S-Biner. This keyring is a little on the large size but it opens bottles better than anything else I’ve tried and used.

    Sunglasses: Ray Ban 2140 Wayfarer Classic Polarized. Originally I didn’t like the look of classic Wayfarers, but these have grown on me. The have a classic look that never goes out of style. The glasses are made with 3 barrel hinge construction. Since the glasses came with a case, they have been treated better than other glasses, but these glasses can also withstand a lot of abuse.

    Wedding Ring: Titanium.

    • A lot of cool things you got there!

    • Hi Matthew, I agree with Richard, that is a lot of cool stuff! I’m a flash light nut. I don’t think you could ever have too many of them. Have you heard of the Nitecore EC11? It’s almost twice the cost of the Fenix you have, but also twice the lumens. The size looks to be a bit larger than the Fenix, but comfortably fits in my pocket everyday.

      • Hey KenC, Thanks for recommending the Nitecore EC11. I have actually looked into that light. It looks like the clip is easily removable though so that’s not for me. Is it? I’m looking into the Nitecore MT06 or Streamlight Stylus Pro. The Foursevens Preon 2 would also fit my needs.

  8. I usually carry only my watch, alittle bit in the same style as the watch above, its a Bagel Steelsport a.k.a president homage. So it would be nice with a little bit better watch!

    • I’d love to have a new wallet. I lost mine I only have a purse lol. Coin purse.

  9. I usually have a cheap little TAC-FORCE knife in my blazer pocket just in case, and a really nice watch I got from a museum with an automatic Miyota 8N24 movement. Always have my leather wallet in my pocket and my key ring that was a gift to me from Greece. Last but certainly not least, I always have my phone. The watch looks really nice, and I could definitely use a better knife. I like the key bar too!

  10. My EDC is a Movado 800 series watch, an I-phone, and a leatherman wave multi tool.

    • Hi Paul, I too, carry a wave. I have two of them. Leathermans customer service in outstanding

  11. My EDC: bisonmade wallet, seiko sea urchin watch, vitme handcraft keyhook, nite ize multi tool, kingston usb and rayban sunglasses.

    • That wallet sounds cool

  12. My usual EDC consists of a watch (most days my Seiko SBDX001 Marine Master 300 or my SBBN007 Tuna), an Emerson folder (pimped A-100, CQC-7, HD-7, or a Commander), my Tanner goods card holder as a wallet, a KIA bracelet, and my keys.

    • Love your Seiko collection

    • Garrick, we may have spoken before…Do you also own a TAG?

  13. I’m carrying much, my daily beater watch is Citizen tough (PMT56-2711 or PMU56-2373)
    My key-ring comes with a local rock band stamp
    I have a simple brown leather money clip and my phone is IP67 compliant
    Sometimes I also carry aluminum tactical pen

    • sorry, intended to write “I’m NOT carrying much”
      and yes, no knife, though I’m considering adding some very small knife (like spyderco dragonfly) to my EDC

      • Yegor,

        Wanted to let you know that if you wanted to save a few bucks, you should buy the Dragonfly soon or if you don’t mind having a cheaper version, the Byrd Robin is basically a Dragonfly. Spyderco has created a MAP Policy that will increase the prices of Spyderco producs (including Byrd) slightly after January.

  14. My daily watch is an citizen nighthawk. I also own a Omega speed master .

    • How are you liking that Nighthawk? It’s on my list.

  15. I carry a Thirdeyetactical slim Kreeper, a leatherman skeletool, a hanksbyhank, and a eagtac mini flashlight. My watch varies from day to day, but usually a tool watch or a dive watch.

    • How do you like that skeletool? Pros,cons?

      • I love the keele tool. It’s light, fits good in the pocket, functions perfectly. No cons.

        • That’s awesome. I’ve never had a skeletool, I have a few leather mans but that one never caught my eye. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the response Stephen!!

  16. My EDC is Oreint pilot watch on black nato strap . A folding knife type box cutter as my state has very weird laws as to pocket knife blade length if your from wisconsin look up sommer v wisconsin for more info. Beater watch is seiko kenetic.

    • If the knife does the job, that’s all you need

  17. My EDC consists of my normal keys. I carry 1 set in each front pocket in case I lock them in my truck. My wallet is a Spec Ops wallet, knife is Zero Tolerance 0630 with Emerson wave, Leatherman Wave multitool. Fenix LD22 flashlight. Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Glock 17 in a Wild Bill’s Concealment Holster with a spare mag. It all rides on Duluth Trading lifetime belt. Good luck everyone.

    • That’s a great Edc

  18. Knife – Kershaw skyline!, Watch -Seiko Black Monster, Phone-IPhone 5, with integrated Leather wallet, Handkerchief – Paisley Red Bandanna, Silver wedding ring

  19. My normal EDC is usually a Titanium Framelock Flipper(recently have been rotating between a ZT 0562CF, Spyderco Southard, and Reate Horizon D), multi-tool is a Leatherman Charge TTi, watch is Casio Pathfinder Titanium for work or Zelos Chroma outside of work, flashlight is an Olight S10 Baton, wallet is a Maxpedition Spartan, and I normally have an Atwood or Zach Wood pry tool.

    • That’s three sweet knives you have there sir. I’ve got a ZT0562CF coming my way right now and I can’t wait.

      • Hey,
        You won’t be disappointed, I have both the 560 and the 561 they very good and hold a great edge.

    • Hi Jim, that Olight looks good. If you’re ever in the market for something brighter, I recommend the Nitecore EC11. It’s something I carry with me everyday and packs a whopping 900 lumens in something not too much bigger than the Olight.

    • Yea your Edc is pretty much awesome sauce

    • Best EDC iVe seen on this thread so far. You’ve got great taste

  20. I carry a Ontario rat 1 folder pocket knife. no watch as of yet. keys on a key ring.

  21. Here is a pic of my EDC

    Apple watch steel with one of 3 custom bands
    Fenix pd35 flashlight (Usually keep it in my bag that I carry around. Will attach it to my bike via a bike mount)
    iPhone 6s
    Zippo Lighter
    keysmart holder
    victorinox knife

    • Domnic, about those bands, mind if I ask where you purchased them (online perhaps)? I’m always on the lookout for nice but affordable leather watch bands, so having another one to add to my list would be much appreciated.

      • I individually put all 3 together from amazon. When I say I put it together, I got Apple watch strap adapters. And then bought 22/24 mm regular watch straps separately and fixed them to the adapters. All items were purchased from amazon.

        • Thanks, Domnic!

  22. My EDC is pretty basic. I always wear a watch and have at least one knife with me. I rotate both a lot but right now my favorite watches are my Suunto Core, my Luminox or my Skagen with steel mesh band. As far as knives go, I have some Sogs, 2 Spydercos, a couple of Kershaws and an HK Benchmade Entourage that I alternate through. That setup you folks are giving away would be a welcomed addition to my collection. Thanks for the chance to win some nice EDC gear!

    • I also carry my 5.11 Rush Moab 12 backpack with my HK VP9, a lock pick set, a Mora Bushcraft knife, a compass and some paracord.

      • You’re pretty much at up for success sir, that’s a nice EDC

  23. My husband carries his wallet, a kershaw knife, his phone , and fabulous watch that I don’t know the brand lol but its so pretty!! You can see all the gears through the glass face:)

  24. My normal REC is a Steinhart Ocean One Blue, Victorinox Swiss Army Knife “Spartan”, KeySmart key holder and a copper bracelet I bought on Etsy.

  25. Casio GW-5000-1JF, Bellroy Note Sleeve with Peter Atwood’s Sporkula inside, Munroe Mega Dangler holds my keys with Veleno Design’s D2 and SAK Ramler w/ StayGlow scales, SAK Yeoman IV.

  26. Great comments so far,
    some are similar to what I have.

    My EDC is simple, but in the progress of being upgraded.

    I use to carry my keys in a leather key wallet that was connected to a S-biner or S-link, but have since lost the unique screw for part of the wallet, I carry a leatherman wingman, my thin profile leather wallet, a Nautica yatchtimer watch and my android phone.

    I am hoping to include a folding knife and eventually an altoids EDC tin.

    • Hey Jermaine, if I may recommend the Kershaw Cryo II. It unfolds smooth as butter and comes out of the package very sharp. A very trustworthy brand. I tried an altoid can once, but for my needs it simply was too small. Not sure what your purpose for the tin, but if you’re interested in one who has been down that road, I’ve found that using a pouch about the size of 5×9 (-ish) may be worth keeping in mind if you don’t get everything to fit.

      • I agree with you on the Kryo II, it is a fantastic knife. More often than not thats the knife I grab when I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to put any though into what I want to carry that day. Nice Hinderer design, smooth flip action and deep carry pocket clip.

        • Third for the Kershaw Cryo. Albiet I have carried a Kershaw Cryo I. The Kershaw Cryo is a gateway knife. It has held up to a lot of abuse over the 2 years I have carried it. It also sharpens well.

          • I appreciate your input, Matthew. Definitely a gateway knife.

        • Thank you, Jeremy.

  27. My everyday carry consist of an
    Invicta Russian Diver watch
    Benchmade auto knife
    100watt IPV e-cig with delta 2 tank
    Glock 23 with a kydex Gearcraft inside the waste holster
    Lastly my BlueChip picks

    • Cary, multi-tasker as in “multitool” like a Leatherman? I’m just trying to get an idea of what’s on the market so I keep my options open.

      • Ken, get a leatherman sidekick. Well worth the 30$

  28. Hey guys. I don’t have an elaborate or special carry like most of these guys above my comment have, but that doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t love to join them and carry the awesome items that are up for grabs in the sweet contest. As of right now all I carry is the key to my jeep, house key, and my multi tool. I really would love to carry that key bar so I can stop the noise and i really really would love to rock that watch on my wrist, honestly the coolest one I have laid eyes on. And that cool Emerson knife would be super great to have in my pocket. So I hope with y’all’s help I can move up in the ranks of EDC. Thanks so much for an awesome giveaway I hope to hear from y’all soon.

    • Hey Andrew, welcome to the world of EDC. 🙂 If I may offer some advice, start out small. When I first started out I kind of lost control thinking I needed to have all sort of items. However, the items you mentioned are definitely worth pursuing!

  29. Everyday Carry… Varies depending on the day and the activities that will done that day. But in general:

    Knife – Benchmade 915 Triage BK;

    Watch – Either MIDO Baroncelli (to impress), Tissot Seastar (also for impressions), or Aviator F Series (casual), or Casio Core Black Sports Watch (getting down to business);

    All keys attached onto university landyard;

    Occasionally a pair of lab safety glasses (for school or when I am teaching);

    Also… sometimes, I will have a bracelet of sorts that was gifted to me by someone close;

    My trusty Blackberry phone; and

    A minimum of 2 pens (1 ballpoint + 1 pilot liquid ink).

    My life is usually revolved around me going to school… Pretty boring, but those are the bare essentials!


    • Hi Jason, if I may ask, what specific model of MIDO are you referring to? I ask because I’m wondering if it may be a dress watch, which is what I’m in the market for and would like your input about the brand. Thanks for the assist!

      • Hi Ken,

        My watch is the Barcelloni III (link below of picture). I think it is a very nice watch, it’s moderate in terms of weight, and it’s style is very decent and subtle. The one thing I don’t really like is the watch strap, it is a bit too rigid and can sometimes awkwardly rotate on your wrist. I think it’s a very solid brand, and MIDO being one of the higher end companies in the SWATCH group, has done a fairly decent job.

        So in general if you want a subtle (not in your face) watch to go with your suit or dress shirt, it may offer things that are nice. (I’m also a fan of not having too complex of a watch – simplicity is golden).

  30. My weapon of choice is Bell & Ross phantom chronograph.

    • Peter, I’m a fan of aviation watches, which Bell & Ross seem to specialize in. Taking a look at the Phantom, that certainly fits the description. How’s the lume on that one? Judging from the photo on their site it’s not a color of photo-luminescent coating I’ve seen before.

    • Beautiful watch

  31. my edc consists: knife: CRKT Koji Hara Ichi, watch: Marathon quartz with tritium lume on a nato strap, iphone

    • Kenji, I recently was introduced to Marathon and have put their Diver’s Quartz high on my wish list. It also has tritium. Is it really as bright as they say it is? I really like the idea of not having to “charge” the glow in order to see it.

  32. My latest EDC is a Karas Kustoms retractable brass pen, a Wichard stainless steel sailing clip for my keys,
    A Fisher Chrome Bullet pen for my pocket , a Fallkniven U4 folding lock back knife (22gms), St. Moritz Titan Chrongraph.

    • The St. Moritz Titan is very nice. Would that be the one with the rose fold or silver?

    • I have a KK retrakt. Look into Tactile turn, they make awesome pens

  33. Hi!
    I usually wear omega seamaster and I carry an iPhone and a wallet. I like to keep my edcs as little as possible

    • I agree with being as minimal as possible Miyata. Have you considered collecting other small items you might need in a easy-to-carry pouch, for example?

  34. Casio Protek or a tissot automatic chronograph depending on the occasion, my keys on fenix e01 and sometimes carry a leatherman knife

    • Hi Sundar,
      I’m curious, what model of Leatherman knife? And have you tried one of their smaller pocket size mulitools like the Squirt? (I’m not sure if they even make those anymore.)

  35. My EDC consists of my keys, my wallet and a really cheap casio mq24-7b. I like to keep everything as simple as I can.

  36. Thank you for having this contest!

    My EDC items are the:

    On wrist:
    Orient Ray or the Orient Aviator

    For pocket carry:
    EC11 flashlight
    Leatherman CS multitool
    Opinel No. 6

    An NCStar First Responder bag carries my other items which are too much to list here, but here are some highlights:

    small bottle of water
    Kershaw Cryo II
    Rite in the rain pad
    Pouch with small tools like screwdriver multiset
    1st aid pouch

    • Sounds like you’ve got some badass watches brother. I’m envious

  37. Hey, can someone tell me something about OLIGHT S10?? Is it useful ??

    • Very useful. Small and dependable

  38. Thanks for having this contest, I’m probably relatively boring compared to the rest, I’m still saving up for a ‘nice’ timepiece.

    Wallet: Small hand made leather wallet. It was a gift from uncle (purchased in Spain), whilst it’s only just smaller than an iPhone 4 it fits Australian currency (huge deal). There is no coin pouch.
    Watch: Citizen Eco-drive CA0244-59E. This photo was taken 3 years ago (https://i.imgur.com/ZbPza.jpg) it’s since endured much more abuse and still
    Phone: iPhone 4S (free from work, I broke my android by taking the SIM out).
    Headphones: iPhone 6+ earbuds (again, free from work).
    Keys: 3 keys + RFID tag all tied together on a trimmed zip tie (hardly takes up any room at all)

    • Buy a keybar brother…. Sounds like you need it

  39. I normally rotate throughout the week, but lately I’ve been wearing my Omega Speedmaster Professional with the latest Star Wars approaching. My other essential is my Gerber Knife (I forget the exact model), but I mainly use this to open grocery bags or cut snags off of my shirt.

  40. EDC: watch, swiss army knife on my keychain, keys, smartphone. used to have a leatherman multitool but it has now disappeared, maybe the knife can make up for that! always enjoy the watchreport reviews.

  41. My edc changes often, but I usually wear my Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean as well as my HK nitrous blitz in my right front pocket.

  42. I don’t wear a watch I just use my phone and my keys are in a standard key chain

    • It’s always good to have a watch my friend. The battery will last way longer than thy cell phone….food for thought

  43. My EDCs are just my watch and a Bandage Scissor. It’s very useful and not that dangerous to carry.

  44. First of all, thanks for the awesome contest!
    My EDC is Victorinox Chrono Classic with ceramic bezel (excellent EDC watch in my opinion), LG G3 phone, Victorinox Cadet/Leatherman Style CS and Olight i3s flashlight (if needed) – minimalist convenient to wear EDC.
    If I need beater watch and a bigger knife – I will wear Invicta Venom watch and Spyderco Paramilitary 2 knife.
    Hope you like it and thank you for a chance to win great prizes!

  45. I always carry the 15gr knife from Deejo, my iPhone, my RayBans, my DSSD with me.
    I really love my vintage Messenger Back in Canvas and Leather, brown and grey.
    And of course my long term companion, my beard.

    • You carry your beard in your pocket? I wish I had that feature.

      • Would be a nice feature, true.

  46. my EDC is a Borialis sniper scout which i discovered right here at Watch Report ,Victorinox Alox,Motorola Droid Ultra and a Glock 26 oh and my keys to my GMC…….

  47. I carry a 4″ Gerber folder clip knife, keys, wallet, phone, a S&W .45, and a Suunto watch.

    • I have a Suunto too, I love it! Great timepieces.

    • Hi Josh, would you mind elaborating on the Suuntos please? I’m currently in the market for a watch that is geared for physcial activities and I’ve only gathered a few firsthand experiences with them. I saw that some models have the ability to measures distances, which would be great to have when I go hiking. Can you offer any advice to that effect?

  48. My etc isn’t much, I wear an Orient Mako xl, carry a wallet, my keys, ear buds and iPad mini.

    • Hi Stan, the Orient watches are definitely a good brand to go with. I have a very small watch collection and two of them are from Orient: the Aviator (blue dial) and the Ray (black dial).

  49. I like the Bell & Ross phantom chronograph

  50. Hi I’m wearin AWI watch and i never win anything before and I would love to win any of EDC products
    good luck everyone ^_^

  51. I wear a Obris Morgan Explorer II or scuba-dude Amphibia and carry a generic leather wallet, 3 keys on a ring, and my Xperia 3.

    • Another fan of divers! I took a look at the Orbis site and judging from the “sold out” labels, I’m guessing they’re a hit with everyone. Is the lume really as bright as they show it in their photos?

      • Oops, make that “Obris.” 😉

  52. Great giveaway idea.

    I never lead the house without: 1) A watch. 2) iPhone. 3) Gerber 8970614F folding knife. 4) Fitbit Flex. 5) Black leather wallet with integrated magnetic money clip. 6) Keys on traditional key ring. I have several watches, but the ones that make it on my wrist the most are a Prometheus Piranha and Timex Expedition Field Chromo. I had never even heard of a Key Bar until this contest, but I like the concept!

    • Whoops, I meant “Never LEAVE the house . . . “, not “Never LEAD the house . . . “

      • That’s ok, Brian. We’re a very forgiving bunch here. 🙂

        A lover of diver watches, eh? That’s fantastic. I, too, have a weakness for them as well in addition to pilot watches. Have you taken a look at the watches from Squale? They have some great looking designs for divers.

        • KenC . . . yes, I have seen some of the Squale divers, but they are a little out of my price range at this point in my life. I’ll be adding an Obris Morgan Explorer II to my collection by Christmas. Then hopefully a Seiko Orange Monster. I think that’ll do me for dive watches for a while, so I plan on moving to the other style I really like afterwards. Like you, that’s military/pilot watches. A Laco Nav B is on my wish list.

    • Thoughts on the Fitbit? I wanna get one for my wife

  53. My edc consists of cellphone, a cheap Kershaw knife, a carbiner full of keys,ultrafire flashlight, monitor 6 firepager, monitor 5 for Ems, and liquid polarized sunglasses

    • Hi Jeremyf, I paid a pretty penny for my Kershaw (Cryo II, btw), so I’d love to know where you got one on the cheap. 🙂

    • Kershaw has a huge warehouse sale going on right now…. Good for though gents

  54. Hey there. My EDC consists of a phone, one of numerous watches, car keys and my parachute wrist band.

    • Hi Jim, you got me thinking–is a parachute wrist band be one that’s made out of paracord perhaps?

  55. My EDC is Squale GMT Ceramica , seiko sbdc001 or Victorinox dive master 500 mecha
    BUCK folding knife
    Smith & Weson tactical knife
    Allett leather wallet
    Minimum 2 pens ball point and liquid ink
    I phone 6plus with otter box commutter case
    Small led flash light
    Leather satchel
