If you are carrying a gps or a cell phone, the watch is redundant since both of the above will give you the time. I also don't carry a cell phone since reception is either very spotty or non existant in the Adirondacks.

I also question the need for a camp saw except for in the colder months.

MRE's are heavy for backpacking food. Better choices out there.

As mentioned: wallet? I carry my Drivers license (for Id purposes so they know where to send the body), a CC and a couple of bills in a small zip lock.
