Ep. 154: Guilty Pleasure Watches

10/14/2020
This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, the team sits down to talk about watches that fall squarely into the “Guilty Pleasure” category. Not every watch that we love is a consensus favorite – sometimes, the heart wants what the heart wants, even if nobody else does. Those are the watches we’ll be talking about today, those timepieces that, for whatever reason, fall outside of the mainstream, or are just less accepted by fans and enthusiasts. In other words, watches we shouldn’t like, but...
