Everyday Carry: Connery

While most might think that James Bond is a unified character, a discerning eye will realize that each actor brought something very different to the role. Look even closer and you’ll notice that their individual styles differ, as well – from their gadgets, to their clothing, even to their cars. One of our all-time favorite versions of the super-spy, however, has to be Sean Connery (who, coincidentally, is also the first). Having played the character from 1962 until 1967 – and then again in 1971 and 1983 – Connery’s version of everyday carry gear would be a little outdated today. If he were around now, however, we imagine he’d have a loadout not dissimilar to the gear in this week’s pocket dump; it’s elegant, understated, and has just the right number of tricks up its sleeve.

Dividere Stainless Steel Flask

While we certainly love the idea of carrying a flask, most are a bit limited when it comes to beverage variety. Not Dividere’s stainless steel flask, however – this sturdy bad boy features dual chambers that can easily be swapped between (or poured simultaneously, if you’re a cocktail whiz), perfect for sharing or changing up your drink on-the-fly.

Purchase: $49+

Boker Plus Urban Trapper Knife

One of the sleekest and most-stylish minimalist folding knives we’ve ever seen, Boker’s urban trapper is perfect for the discerning gentleman. And it has plenty of substance, too, with its G10 handle scales, liner lock, and VG-10 stainless steel clip point blade.

Purchase: $70

Inventery Mechanical Pen

While we believe every man should carry a writing utensil, some are clearly head-and-shoulders above others – like Inventery’s Mechanical Pen. Machined from solid brass and done up in black with a chrome-finished Schmidt SKM88 silent all-metal clicker, this is a handsome EDC pen that will never let you down – a fact backed up by its lifetime warranty.

Purchase: $90

Alsta Nautoscaph II Dive Watch

Granted, it’s not a Rolex Submariner, but we like to think that Alsta’s Nautoscaph II dive watch (made famous by its appearance in the movie, Jaws) is plenty stylish enough for Connery’s version of James Bond, but at a fraction of the price you might expect. Whatever the case, this beautiful timepiece features an incredibly sturdy stainless steel construction, a reliable NH35A 24-jewel movement, and a water-resistance rating of 300 meters.

Purchase: $850
