I forgot (usually just a Seiko 5), and didn't empty my pockets...usually everything looks like some permutation of this:

No pics, but my usual EDC stuff consists of:

- Saddleback Wallet (coffee)
- Lamy 2000 ballpoint pen
- Lamy 2000 mechanical pencil (0.7mm)
- GEC Huckleberry Boy's Knife - two blade, ebony scales (sometimes this is replaced by a Chris Reeve Mnandi with snakewood scales or a Michael Morris friction folder, made from old files -- has a great bottle cap opener so if I'm going to be drinking beer with friends, this is what I'll pop in the pocket)
- Stowa Flieger (plain face, no date, no logo)
- HDS Rotary High CRI (120 lumens) or a Peak Logan 17500 (Nichia 219 LED in a "mule" head)
- iPhone 5

Joe,
you need to update your flashlights into the 'digital age' , eeeh that would be LED.
Look out for anything with a Cree LED. I have one pocket size and one for the bike it's almost like a car's high beam.
Just amazing vs top notch MagLite from 5 years ago. But of course these lights (3x AAA) are for the lumens output and not the defense factor (4 D cells)

Here's one I did a year ago:

Breitling Airwolf
Sunwayman V10A flashlight
Spyderco Delica IV



I can basically do a different daily rotation for the next two months or so, considering the sheer amount of gear that I own

I have never smoked. The Zippo truly is just because it is cool.

I wasn't feeling well today so I have a rather minimal stuff on me now. Usually I have either a Spyderco (got a few) or CRK Sebenza (2001 annual LE, small, left hand) in my pocket in addition to these.

I like mechanical watches most of time, but Pebble is fun (and geeky).

When I'm driving, I also have a small LED light with CR123 battery and Leatherman Charge TTi in glovebox.
