1/19/2022
This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, we’re looking ahead to 2022, and talking about what we want to see more of from our favorite brands (and the industry as a whole) in the new year. Will brands like Tudor move from 2021’s niche releases (they really made a silver dive watch last year, people) to a more mass market approach? What are we about to see from IWC in 2022? Is this the year of the dress watch? All will be revealed in time, but for now give a listen to this week’s episode, and...

12/22/2021
This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, Blake Buettner and Zach Kazan sit down for an end-of-year conversation that covers watch resolutions, recent acquisitions, and watch buying regrets. The recent Zenith Poker Chip is once again discussed (seems we can’t get this one out of our heads) as is the concept of watch trading (as opposed to selling for cash). And because it’s the time of year when everyone seems to be heading out on the road, we talk about our own preferences when it comes to...

11/24/2021
This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, Blake Buettner and Zach Kazan sit down to talk about some of the more interesting new releases to hit the watch world in the last week (including an instance of the sequel maybe outperforming the original in the case of the latest from Aquastar), as well as a recap of our recent event with Farer at the Filson flagship store in Manhattan.

The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 212: Tudor's New Pelagos FXD

11/17/2021
Today on the podcast, Blake Buettner, Zach Weiss, and Zach Kazan sit down to talk about what is unquestionably one of the biggest watch releases of the year: the Tudor Pelagos FXD. What is the FXD? Well, if this were Wheel of Fortune, and you bought a few vowels, the “fixed” theme of the watch comes into focus. This iteration of the Pelagos had been the topic of much speculation in recent months as leaks began to hit social media, and the fixed lug bars, unusual bi-directional bezel, and...

11/10/2021
This week on the podcast, Blake Buettner, Zach Weiss, Zach Kazan, and Ed Jelley have gathered to talk about, among other things, the recently completed Grand Prix Horlogerie d’Geneve, better known as GPHG. Every year, some of the biggest names in watchmaking come together in Geneva to celebrate, well, each other. Some of the awards left us scratching our heads (it was news to us that Louis Vuitton made the best dive watch of the year), but plenty of Worn & Wound favorites took home prizes,...

Today on the Worn & Wound podcast, Blake Buettner and Zach Kazan are in the studio to talk about some of our favorite collaborations released so far this year.

The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 208: Hot Takes

10/20/2021
This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, we’re talking about some of your favorite unpopular opinions when it comes to watches. We asked listeners for their hottest watch takes, and man oh man did they ever deliver. From Rolex, to date placement (of course) to the very concept of watch spotting, our listeners held nothing back, and it made for some great conversation and good natured debate. Of course, Blake Buettner, Zach Weiss, Blake Malin, and Zach Kazan offer their own spicy takes on all...

The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 205: A Growing Interest in Gold

9/29/2021
This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, just like Scrooge McDuck, we’re diving headfirst into gold. Zach Weiss recently penned an editorial on his growing interest in gold, and in this episode Blake Buettner and Zach Kazan join him to talk about how gold watches fit into our lives, or could, in theory, someday down the line. We wonder aloud why it is that gold watches gain in our esteem over time, and which gold watches we’d choose for ourselves if money were no object, or if commodities...

This is a really fun conversation that touches on everything from the commonly owned Seiko divers among the three podcast participants,...

The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 202: The Best of Geneva Watch Days

9/8/2021
This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, we’re talking about some of our favorites from the recently completed Geneva Watch Days. This year’s Geneva Watch Days event marked the return of in-person watch fairs to Switzerland after a long pandemic induced hiatus, and while the scale of this trade show isn’t on par with Baselworld in its prime, there were still a lot of heavy hitters seeing the light of day for the first time. This isn’t the normal crop of brands that we cover on Worn & Wound...
