On the show this week, I have Rob Caplan, the the co-owner of a family-run watch and jewelry store out in Burlingame California called Topper Fine Jewelers, and Chad Tsagris, the head of Laco USA. This week’s episode of The Worn & Wound Podcast is brought to you by the Windup Watch Shop.
A little bit of backstory on today’s episode. Late last year, I flew out to Burlingame for a launch event for a watch that many of you are probably already familiar with if you read the site on a regular basis — the Laco Flieger Limited Topper Edition. This was Topper’s big end-of-year release, and I had known about the project for some time as Rob worked with Laco through its many stages of development in 2019 and offered sneak peaks along the way. When the watch was finally ready, Rob invited some media and influencers out to his store in Burlingame to be among the first people to see the watch in the metal.
