At the heart of things, watches really are, first and foremost, tools:  they tell us the time. Yes, they can certainly do a lot more, and do so in a variety of forms and fashions.  At the heart of the matter, though, they are tools.  Most watch guys (and gals) appreciate this fact, and also pay attention to the “tool” tools that they have in their possession as well, which is why our partnership with Everyday Carry makes so much sense. 


They of course focus on the gear (and tools) that people carry with them, day in and day out.  Alongside a watch and knife, a flashlight is likely the most common tool that people will be carrying.  Sure, the dollar bin special from the hardware store will help you get to the fuse box in the basement, just like a $5 drugstore watch will tell you the time.  It gets it done, but it does not satisfy the itch.  If you have been looking to up your flashlight game, then this guide from Everyday Carry is just what the doctor ordered.  Rather than being a run down or top 5 sort of a list, this article breaks down the components of a flashlight to help you better understand what it is you might be buying.  Should you want a buying guide, they do of course have that as well, at the end of the guide.  Shine on, you glorious readers!  everydaycarry.com
