Muyshondt makes totally over-engineered, no-expense-spared pocket flashlights for camping and other uses, but this one uses an ultraviolet LED made especially for watches — and, more specifically, made in collaboration with the watch enthusiast group RedBar. To clarify, a light such as this is useful for inspecting watch details, as well as charging lume on the dial for fun or photography — ask a professional watch nerd and he or she will be able to explain this phenomenon. (To be clear, we should note that we love Muyshondt lights so much that we carry them in the Gear Patrol Store).
With attention to detail and specs that sound like they might belong to a luxury watch, including titanium construction and a double antireflective-coated sapphire crystal, the Muyshondt Maus UV Electric Torch RedBar Special Edition is a premium product. It’s weather-sealed, features three easily adjusted light intensities using the brand’s Calibre 416 Light Engine, and even has a red enamel-filled engraving. With everyday-carry dimensions of 53.25mm long and 14.5mm in diameter, this is the kind of product one buys once and enjoys using for a long time. The limited-production light it is available for pre-order today for a price of $400 and comes with a Horween Shell Cordovan leather sheath.
