Everyday Carry: Frogman

Published By

When it comes to everyday carry inspiration, our men in uniform definitely set a gold standard. The last of the US Navy frogmen may have been absorbed into SEAL units in the ‘80s, but they’ve made a lasting impression in the world of dive watches—and gear in general. Channel your inner action figure with today’s EDC curation, each item with the versatility, style, and performance of a combat diver.

Hamilton Khaki Navy Frogman Watch

With its brawny crown lock and cog-shaped bezel, Hamilton’s archive classic, the Khaki Navy Frogman, is still boldly tactile. At 300 meters of water resistance, its lume is as necessarily brilliant in the water as it is out of it. Style-wise, there’s a mix of lustrous polish and impeccable brushing throughout, while the silky, line-forward dial provides beautiful legibility.

Naturally, this aircraft-grade aluminum wallet, with its snap-latch and RFID-blocker, is waterproof, crush-proof, and identity-theft-proof.

James Brand’s Redstone brings swiftness and strength into a compact, light-weight, and most importantly, adaptable pocket knife. With its finger-rest design, you can grip easier, getting a smoother action from the edge-retaining 12C27 steel blade—serrated or straight.
