Today on the Worn & Wound podcast, we’re launching a new series with a specific focus on watch collecting. Watch collecting is a highly personal endeavor, so we asked a cross-section of notable collectors, some of whom you might be familiar with from their Instagram accounts, about their approach to the hobby. We’ll cover a broad range of topics related to collecting in these episodes – including how taste is developed over time, common collecting mistakes, and what draws these collectors to watches in the first place. Welcome to “Ask the Collectors.”
Similar to our “Ask the Brands” series, in these podcasts, each collector will be asked a broad question about collecting to get their unique perspective on the hobby. In this episode, Zach Kazan spoke with Worn & Wound contributor Christoph McNeill, Seiko enthusiast and collector Erik Strickland, James Smith, an occasional contributor to this site and collector of vintage and modern watches alike, and Rob of the @bazamu Instagram account and website.
