    Howdy everybody, I have been a long time stalker of this forum and finally decided to post my EDC.

    This is what I carried to a tequila tasting this weekend. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

    This is a Peter Pan watch. Time flies by, but it doesn’t get one minute older. :rolleyes:

    That's a nice carry but those cufflinks are awesome!
    What's the Citizen's number? Looks a bit like the NH6050, but with a different crown cover...

    Ok, being a computer noob. How did you get the watch hand to move on a still photo?

    The watch is the Citizen BM8180-03E. The R2D2 cufflinks were a total impulse buy before heading on vacation a few months back since my Star Wars belt is too worn down to hold my pants up.

    As for the cinemagraph, it wasn't too had because the watch has discrete second ticks (as opposed to a continuously rotating hand). I just loaded a minute long video clip of the watch into Photoshop and separated the second hand for each frame (so that there's no movement in the minute and hour hands, leading to seamless looping). It was a fun little project I wanted to try and gave me an excuse to borrow my girlfriend's camera.

    Nice gear. Asthma sucks, doesn't it? Luckily I haven't had an attack since 2006. My inhalers expire before I even use them now.

    Yeah, it's a b*tch... I'm down to only needing my inhaler once a month or so, but it's still part of my every day carry. I never really know when I'm gonna regret not having it handy. I know it's not a sexy EDC item, but I figured I'd include it in the shot... Maybe I need to track down a supplier for a custom all-titanium inhaler, perhaps with trit vials!
