Two things that come to mind when I think of Manly everyday carry items is the folding knife and the watch. We have reviewed several higher end knives that would fall into this category. Today we are going to take a look at a quality timepiece that falls into that same category.

When I received the Jester watch from Minuteman Watches I have to say I was pretty impressed upon opening the package.

First off the watch comes in a padded zippered pouch along with a personalized document outlining the serial number, watch movement, and date for warranty reasons.

The second thing I noticed was the back of the watch. The backside of the watch has the Minuteman Watches logo etched into it with the following words;

Being that I served my country and consider myself an American Patriot, I thought this was pretty damn cool!

I’ve only been wearing the watch for about a week, but it’s very unobtrusive and comfortable to wear. The sleek professional appearance of the watch goes well with dress clothes and suits. The watch doesn’t scream tactical, yet stands up to most standards that those tougher ‘tactical’ watches adhere too.
