We’ve got a great show for you all this week. In the first half of the episode, I’m joined by our Associate Editor Zach Kazan, and he and I talk about a story he wrote some time ago, titled “The Backyard Breguet: How An Exceedingly Rare Watch Made it to Auction.” Now, we don’t normally cover auctions here on Worn & Wound, but every now and then we make an exception when the story of the auction and the watch being sold is really good. This “backyard Breguet” was a true horological find, and one that almost went under the radar because it was so unusual. I won’t get too into it here, but it’s a great reminder that there are still gems out there waiting to be discovered.
In the second half of the episode, I’m joined by Arianna Pozza, the Head of Product Category Watches at Victorinox Swiss Army. I’m a fan of Victorinox and I have been for a long time, and I especially like their overbuilt INOX series, so I was really excited to get Arianna on the show to discuss that. But we also cover other topics, including her career trajectory in the watch industry, the brand’s approach to women’s watches, and a whole lot more.
This week’s episode is brought to you by the Windup Watch Shop.
