If you really want to find a watch second hand it can be an arduous task, especially if it’s a rare, discontinued or popular.
Most watch sales listings sections are hard to navigate by modern technological standards. Enter WatchRecon.com, a website that culls private sales listings for the top watch forums and shows the most important details of each sales post in a grid, complete with photos, prices, an overview and a link to the full listing.
These vintage Swiss-made chronographs from a storied American brand combine great looks and quality mechanics at an affordable price.
Thanks for another awesome week of watch pics! I can’t tell you how much fun it is, not to mention educational, to see what watches everyone is ACTUALLY wearing… keep on posting! and keep on tagging #wornandwound ! Enjoy the pics.
Cotton wouldn’t be most people’s first choice today for outerwear during a heavy downpour, but for the longest time – before the advent of waterproof synthetics – cotton was just that. But this wasn’t your run-of-the-mill Hanes t-shirt cotton. No, this cotton was thick and heavy and specially treated with oils and waxes that resulted in a water-resistant cloth that kept the elements out and its wearer dry.
Bernhardt is one of those cult brands that people simply love. As you can read in our brand highlight on them from a little while ago, it’s a small family run brand that puts an emphasis on customer service and the relationships they make with customers. In that way, they really are unique, even amongst the boutique brands, having the feeling more of a local corner store than an internet based company.
In the last couple of months two of our favorite affordable German brands, Steinhart and Archimede, have both announced some new and exciting things that are very worth taking note of. Steinhart has made headway in the development of their self-labeled calibers, with the introduction of the ST. 5 automatic movement. UPDATE: Steinhart has also announced the Ocean Vintage One, which is the first watch to use the new caliber. Archimede has introduced a new dial and finish to their Outdoor’s line as well as a handful of additions to their very popular bronze pilot selection.
Another great week of instagram watch shots, thanks to everyone who submitted! Once again, we only picked 10 out of the many and picked images for variety and style. If your shots didn’t make it this week, please keep submitting, this is a lot of fun, so we’re going to keep doing it. That’s that, enjoy the pics!
The dreaded holiday shopping season is officially upon us, and we here at worn&wound are going to do our duty to steer you in the right direction (or give you ideas to steer others towards what you want) with a holiday gift guide. Since in this last year the w&w family has grown to include several great contributors, we thought we’d start a tradition of our own and get each of our writers to send in ideas for both watch related and generally cool gifts.
