Everyday Carry: Stargazer

Aug 7, 2019

Category: Everyday Carry

It’s been 50 years since a human being walked on the surface of the moon. Yet we’re also right on the cusp of ending that cold streak, as multiple organizations — including NASA — are trying to put someone back up on our solitary satellite. But it’s not as simple as just walking on the moon this time; they’re actually trying to establish a base of operations to act as a jumping-off point on the way to Mars and further. And just like that, humanity has turned its gaze back toward the stars. It’s with this in mind that we’ve put together this week’s everyday carry pocket dump. All of this gear is either space-ready or inspired by our spacefaring adventures. Whichever the case, it’s all solid and stylish enough to help get you through all your days here on Earth.

Word Pocket Notebooks

If you value the written word or you’re in the habit of coming up with some good ideas, then you should already be carrying around a pocket notebook. This one, in particular, is a solid option in that regard. Not only is it beautiful, but it comes in a pack of three, has 48 lined pages between its spacey covers, and was made in the USA.

Purchase: $10

Fisher AG7 Astronaut Space Pen

Fisher has the distinction of being the brand that supplies NASA with their astronauts’ writing utensils. Lucky for you, however, you can get those exact same pens down here on-planet. The AG7 Astronaut Space Pen is the very one that has been sent up into orbit time and time again. It can write upside-down, underwater, or in zero gravity. And it is built from beautiful chrome-plated brass and comes with a lifetime guarantee.

Purchase: $60

Revo The Moonwalker Zero G Sunglasses

Though he hasn’t gotten the recognition he deserves, Pet Conrad remains the 3rd person to ever step foot on the moon. He also happens to be one of Revo’s ambassadors and he wore the brand’s Moonwalker Zero G sunglasses in an ad when they were first unveiled. This reissue remains true to those original shades — including their titanium frames, high-contrast polarized Serilium+ lenses, and ultra-slim profile. But only 500 will ever be made, so you’ll want to act quickly.

Purchase: $499

Cut Throat x WKRMN Folding Knife

Made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, this minimalist non-locking friction folder is unlike most other pocket knives we’ve ever seen. And that’s due, in part, to the fact that the resin scales are printed with actual scans of the surface of the moon. Pair that with stupendous craftsmanship and this limited edition cutting-tool is a must-have for anyone who can afford it and understands its rarity and unique connection to our solitary satellite.

Purchase: $500

Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Chronograph

Omega’s Speedmaster is literally the watch that went to the moon. And, while you’ll likely never get your hands on one of the actual Moonwatches, you can still pick one up that was made to the same exacting standards and specifications. With a steel bracelet to match its case, a scratch‑resistant sapphire crystal, 50m water-resistance, and an automatic movement, this is a legendary timepiece that belongs in any serious collector’s arsenal.

Purchase: $6,350
