We are all about functional gear, especially the one you can carry with you at all times. So you can understand our excitement when we stumbled upon the Leatherman Tread QM1 Multi-Tool Watch ($500,00).
At a first glimpse this looks just like a typical metallic watch, except there’s nothing ordinary about it. This bad boy packs in its bracelet a total of 25 hard working tools including phillips and flat head screw drivers, hex and box wrenches, glass breaker, even a cutting hook and the mandatory bottle opener. The interchangeable links (each one has 2 or 3 individual tools on it) are connected via a screw and connector bracket, and the whole thing is crafted out of durable, corrosion-resistant 17-4 stainless steel. As for the timepiece itself, it’s a Leatherman-designed and Swiss-made watch with precision quartz movement, shock resistant sapphire crystal with scratch resistance, and a rotating bezel. The Leatherman Tread QM1 Multi-Tool Watch has water resistance to 200 meters, it comes with a choice of 2 rugged finishes (black & stainless steel), and it’s TSA compliant so you can take the right tools with you anytime-anywhere. via
