This is really what I carry every day. I have a half dozen wrist watches I choose from each day about half quartz and half automatic. The flipper is usually with me in some capacity, often clipped to a belt loop as I use it as my RFID key at MakeIt Labs. You may notice there are no car keys or wallet. In the winter I usually keep those in my jacket (Belstaff Trialmaster most days) for driving and when the weather is good I mostly bicycle and don’t take a wallet or need keys. I mostly use cash or in a pinch I can use Google Pay. My house lock is Z-wave pushbutton Schlage lock so I don’t need a house key and the Volt is keyless so I just have the fob to carry on a split ring with a Tile, tritium tube, and SIM tool.

The magnet is a bit unusual but I have found it to be super handy for many tasks including holding small screws and reaching hard to get things (either tape to a stick or magnet to the tip of the pocket knife.
