Ep. 81: Year in Watches 2018

From some incredible releases to industry-shaking news, there was a lot to cover in 2018. On this week's episode of The Worn & Wound Podcast, we recap a wild year in watches. This week’s episode of the Worn & Wound podcast is brought to you by Oris and their Big Crown Pointer Date 80th Anniversary Edition. Since 1904, Oris has been a leading independent Swiss watchmaker, focused exclusively on producing mechanical timepieces that offer a significant value. Oris released their first Big Crown Pilot Watch in 1938 with the aim to create a beautiful, high-quality, reasonably priced timepiece that would be reliable and easy to use. Oris released their first Big Crown Pilot Watch in 1938 with the aim of creating a beautiful, high-quality, and reasonably priced timepiece that would be reliable and easy to use. Oris continues this tradition with the Big Crown Pointer Date 80th Anniversary Edition. The watch features a bronze case that will patinate naturally as it oxidizes so that each watch will take on a unique finish over time. The deep green of the dial also has a natural feel, complementing the bronze case.

Ep. 55: Collecting Seiko, Military, and Vintage Tool Watches with Jon Gaffney

A few weeks back, we published the second installment of our video series, My Watch. The focus of that installment was Jon Gaffney. Jon is a long-standing contributor to the site, often field testing and covering watches that can take a knock or two. Jon’s also written for numerous other publications, among them Gear Patrol, Valet Mag, Huckberry, ITS Tactical, and he’s currently the Director of Marketing and Sales for Iron & Air magazine. But due to the limitations of a 10-minute video, I wanted to get Jon to come on the Podcast to flesh out the story of his collection and to follow up on how his watch obsession has grown since we shot the segment.

Ep. 111: Worn & Wound Looks Back at 2019

Ok, this is it, the final episode of 2019! With it being the end of the year and all, we naturally wanted to take a look back at the year, so we pulled the team together for a little retrospective. We cover a whole range of topics, from some of the trends we noticed this year (surprise, surprise, vintage-inspired watches are still huge), to some of the year's bigger stories, as well as stories we felt should have been far bigger than they were. We also go over some of our favorite pieces of Worn & Wound content.

Ep. 110: Talking Heritage with the CEO of Hamilton and Affordable Complications with the Technical Director of Frederique Constant

We have a great twofer this week. In the first half of the episode, Worn & Wound Managing Editor Ilya Ryvin and Associate Editor Zach Kazan sit down with Hamilton’s CEO Sylvain Dolla and Hamilton’s Head of Product Alfredo Bellaveglia. The conversation was recorded right before Hamilton launched their collaboration with Schott, so we discuss that project, but we also cover some of this year’s other hits, among them the Pilot Pioneer Mechanical and the Chrono-Matic 50. We also pick Alfredo’s brain about how Hamilton approaches design, and if he ever get’s bored of the prevailing neo-vintage trend. One small note about this interview: we recorded it at the busy Freehand hotel here in NYC, so you’re going to hear some background noise throughout the conversation. In the second half of the episode, Zach Weiss and Blake Malin sit down with Pim Koeslag, the Technical Director of Frederique Constant and Alpina, and the CEO of Ateliers deMonaco. They discuss Frederique Constant’s unique approach to high-end complications, how they’re able to achieve such an aggressive price point with their Perpetual Calendar, and a whole lot more. This week’s episode of The Worn & Wound Podcast is brought to you by Hamilton and their new Hamilton Chrono-Matic 50. Released in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the production of the first automatic chronograph, the Chrono-Matic 50 is a sporty chronograph with a distinctive case and with tons of ‘70s flair.

Ep. 109: Discussing Small Scale Luxury Manufacturing with Grant Stone Shoes

Ilya here! On this week’s episode of The Worn & Wound Podcast, we’re switching things up a bit. We’re not really talking about watches (don’t worry, there is some watch talk). But if you follow Zach or myself on Instagram, then you’ve likely noticed that other than watches, we’re both pretty into shoes, and one of our favorite brands is Grant Stone. Our guests this week are Wyatt Gilmore and his father Randy Gilmore, and they’re the founders of Grant Stone. Grant Stone is a relatively young footwear brand, and, in many ways, they’re not unlike some of the smaller, enthusiast-run brands we cover on Worn & Wound. Since hitting the scene in 2016, they’ve already built a catalog of high quality, classically styled shoes — they’ve got plain toe bluchers and longwings, penny loafers and hard-wearing country boots. All models are Goodyear-welted and feature high-quality uppers, insoles, and outsoles. And the thing is, Wyatt and Randy wouldn’t have it any other way. Their family has been in the shoe business for generations so they’re all about doing it right, and though they’re a small fish in a large pond, that experience has allowed them to break out of the pack, and they’ve already grown quite the following of devotees who swear by their shoes. Wyatt and Randy swung by Worn & Wound HQ to talk about their brand, but we didn't just talk about Grant Stone. We covered a whole bunch of topics like what actually makes a pair of shoes good? What is a welt? How did Alden’s Indy boot get its name? And yes, even how Randy accidentally rolled a tractor over his Rolex GMT-Master II (see, there's watch talk). This week’s episode of the Worn & Wound podcast is brought to you by Citizen and their iconic line of Eco-Drive watches. For over 40 years, Citizen has been producing watches with Eco-Drive technology. Highly efficient and versatile, Citizen Eco-Drive watches are powered by any light — artificial, natural, and even dim light. Eco-Drive watches never need a battery replacement and once fully charged, many models will operate for 6 months with no light source.To learn more and discover Citizen’s full line of Eco-Drive watches, head to citizenwatch.com/podcast.

Ep. 112: Retail and Limited Editions with Rob Caplan of Topper Fine Jewelers

On the show this week, we’ve got Rob Caplan, the the co-owner of a family-run watch and jewelry store out in Burlingame California called Topper Fine Jewelers, and Chad Tsagris, the head of Laco USA. This week’s episode of The Worn & Wound Podcast is brought to you by the Windup Watch Shop. First, a little bit of backstory on the episode. Late last year, our Managing Editor Ilya Ryvin flew out to Burlingame for a launch event for a watch that many of you are probably already familiar with if you read the site on a regular basis — the Laco Flieger Limited Topper Edition. This was Topper’s big end-of-year release, and we had known about the project for some time as Rob worked with Laco through its many stages of development in 2019. When the watch was finally ready, Rob invited some media and influencers out to his store in Burlingame to be among the first people to see the watch in the metal. To learn more about the watch, you can read Ilya's coverage here. We wanted to get Rob — and Chad — on the podcast to talk about the watch and what it took to get it made. But we also wanted to get Rob on the show to talk a little bit about what it’s like to be a retailer today, and how he’s found success at a time when traditional retail continues to struggle.

Episode 26: A Chat with Andreas Bentele of Fortis Watches

Fortis is a brand that gets its fair share of coverage on Worn & Wound, and it's coverage that is well-deserved. The storied Swiss brand has grown by leaps and bounds the last couple of years with a newer, younger team at the helm dedicated to revamping the brand's catalog, bringing down SKUs, and focusing on value-driven, high-quality horology. Joining us today on The Worn & Wound Podcast is Andreas Bentele, Director of Marketing for Fortis, to discuss the brand, how it has grown over the last couple of years, and what the future holds in store.
