Everyday Carry: Muted

Published By

When it comes to everyday carry essentials, functionality, style, and reliability are paramount. Whether you’re navigating the urban jungle or exploring the great outdoors, having the right tools at your disposal can make a world of difference. Headlined by Unimatic’s U1 Dive watch in a limited edition olive colorway, this collection of essential everyday carry items strikes the perfect balance between practicality and aesthetics.

Unimatic Modello Uno Ref. U1S-8O


Italian microbrand company Unimatic was established in 2015 by a pair of Milanese-born pals who decided to design a watch for the thrill of it. The result was the brand’s most popular item to date — the Modello Uno — or U1 — a dive watch revered for its contemporary, minimalist design while still maintaining a vintage feel. This is that timepiece, in a muted olive green colorway limited to 400 pieces.

You’ll still have 300 meters of water resistance, a unidirectional timing bezel, and a reliable Swiss movement, in a colorway you likely won’t see anyone else wearing from this brand.

The Ridge Wallet

The Ridge Wallet


Olive drab isn’t just a color, it’s a symbol of defrilled functionality, which makes it the perfect color for one of The Ridge’s minimalist, built-for-life wallets. Two plates of anodized aluminum are held together with a rugged elastic band—that’s where the cards go. A clip or strap holds your folded bills. And that’s it. Because that’s all that’s needed. It’s minimalist carry at its core.
