Simply great watches this week. We’ve got a few Steinharts, a Sinn, a Nomos and more below. Thanks again to all who submitted, keep up the great work! #wornandwound grows and grows by the day and is becoming a great archive of awesome watch shots. We’re also about to break 5,000 followers, so help us out and tell your friends to give us a follow! Next stop, 10k!
Yes, there were electronic Speedmasters. And there still are today, but we’ll get to that in a few minutes. But it seems like heresy, doesn’t it? A watch with ‘Speedmaster,’ even ‘Speedmaster Professional’ on the dial while inside beats an electronic heart! And yet, we know from their pursuit of timing excellence (through their work in Olympic competition, among other things) that Omega has always looked for ways to innovate and thus improve.
Back in the 1970s, it was possible to walk into a UK car dealership and hand over your money for a brand new car that was so badly made and designed it would already have terminal rust. It would have been designed by a warring committee, it wouldn’t go properly, the engine would be made from bits of biscuit tin and the brakes wouldn’t.
Keeping up with new watches released on Kickstarter or Indiegogo is becoming quite the task. We have recently looked at a batch of current campaigns as well as conducted a follow up to several funding projects we have featured in the past. Since then more hopefuls have gotten things under way, hoping to get their project off the ground. Among them is The Helmsman by Zelos Watches.
What’s on the menu today? Chronographs and vintage. Why? Because we’ve gotten soooo many awesome submissions of both. Don’t forget, what you see here is only a few of what’s been submitted. Look up #wornandwound on IG and you’ll see close to 4,000 images of killer watches. Enjoy!
Many watch collectors would likely argue that they are always wearing art on their wrist when they strap on a beloved timepiece. While I’m certainly not going to argue this as I believe it myself, what if you could literally wear art on your wrist? Well, Schmutz Watches (pronounced sh-moots, for a history of the name, check out the video on their now complete kickstarter campaign) set out to achieve this goal with two lines of, well, wrist art-cum-watches.
Bond. James Bond.
The name is a natural selection when thinking of iconic watches in movies appearances. From the first Rolex appearance in the 1960′s to the digital age in the 1970′s and the return to mechanical watches later in the series, Bond’s watches have had an impact.
