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.
There are a handful of options available for those who have the desire to own something of their own; a customized, one of a kind timepiece has a certain allure that draws many a buyer. Such a task can be accomplished by modding an existing watch with dial and hands of your choice, or using an online service to create something more personalized.
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.
As fans of watches we love seeing new watches and brands being made available for our wrists, or at least our wish lists. We have featured watch brands attempting to get off the ground via Kickstarter and Indiegogo, some have been successful, others have not. If you have the drive, patience and a few good contacts the ability to start your own watch brand are at your fingertips.
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!
