    Same here. Not really a pen guy. I am constantly writing on drawings on our shop floor and they are typically nasty, dirty and hanging up on equipment being built. Having a pen that will write over anything including something hanging vertically comes in handy. I have one in black and one in red (for those rare occasions I make a mistake, haha).

    Love the Fisher Space Pen. Was so excited to get one when I was nine. Pestered my parents for weeks. It said it wrote upside-down, under water. I tested it in all these scenarios and they weren't lying. Nitrogen-filled or something? Really tactile ovoid thing with nice matt paint. I'm going to try to dig it out next time I go to see the folks.

    Hayward, is that stuff just in your pockets on a day_to-day basis?

    He has dress and casual pocket knives. There's something deliciously insane about that.

    So does Patrick Bateman.

    Shit, I realised I have my pocket knife in my drawer at work and could have done the triplecombo with that. If you can all bear the wait i'll save that treat until the morning.

    Travel with one watch. Usually the Nautilus. Steel, can go anywhere, slip under my cuff, okay with suits and formal wear (though not ideal), can certainly take it (and have taken it several times) to the beach.

    More recently I've gotten into the habit of traveling with two watches: usually my perp cal 3940P for when I have to be in suits, etc. Then I switch it out to my Sub or DSSD once the day is done and if I go out with friends. Love the little diver buggers. Hah hah.

    How about law school exams, where you'd go through 5-10 blue books to answer three discussion questions. LOL So primitive looking back on it.

    While I hated studying those were good times for me...and many I miss the watch prices of back then...SS Daytona MSRP $5,100, SS Subs and GMTs around $2,850...If only I had a time machine. Those were the days.

    Actually, a few days before my crim law final, and about 3 hours before a class review session I made a few random calls found an AD had just gotten in a black SS Daytona and knew I would not be able to concentrate if I let it get away. I raced down town, pulled the trigger, then got to my class review session, oh and I aced the exam. Good thing I didn't let myself get distracted!!!

    I travel with my Speedy Pro. If it could serve an astronaut well travelling to the moon, it is certainly more than adequate to serve my needs! I also don't mind banging it up a bit.

    My Sensa pen, which uses a Fisher Space Pen refill along with my Explorer 2 and some accessories. Actually, everything in this photo, other than the pen was given to me as a gift at some point.

    I like those Khaki Autos. That's a lotta watch for $400. With that said, mine died after swimming for a few moments. Crystal fogged up and then it grinded to a halt. I think it's barely water resistant.
