On this week’s episode of The Worn & Wound Podcast, Worn & Wound Managing Editor Ilya Ryvin and co-host James Helms have the great pleasure of chatting with Steve Laughlin, a mainstay in the independent, enthusiast-brand scene. From his days with Benarus to his current endeavor with Raven, Steve runs down his career making no-frills tool watches, the challenges he’s faced over the years, why he’s no longer interested in homage watches, and a whole lot more.
This week’s episode of The Worn & Wound Podcast is brought to you by Alpina and their AlpinerX Smart Outdoors watch. A robust and highly-functional outdoor companion, the AlpinerX is water-resistant up to 100M and features altitude, barometer, and temperature displays, a compass, connected GPS functionality, UV indicator, and a world timer. The AlpinerX also seamlessly connects to your smartphone via the AlpinerX app to track activity, receive notifications, and adjust watch settings. Alpina recently entered into a three-year partnership with the National Park Foundation, the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service. A portion of Alpina’s support will be behind the National Park Foundation’s effort to protect and enhance America’s rivers and trails in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Trails and National Wild & Scenic River systems.
