The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 154: Guilty Pleasures

This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, the team sits down to talk about watches that fall squarely into the “Guilty Pleasure” category. Not every watch that we love is a consensus  favorite – sometimes, the heart wants what the heart wants, even if nobody else does. Those are the watches we’ll be talking about today, those timepieces that, for whatever reason, fall outside of the mainstream, or are just less accepted by fans and enthusiasts. In other words, watches we shouldn’t like, but against our better judgment, we just can’t stay away.

This, of course, is all in good fun – nobody should feel guilty for loving any watch, but this topic provides an opportunity to shine a light on some watches and brands that may not otherwise get a ton of attention. This conversation covers watches at all price points, from a few hundred dollars, all the way up to “If you have to ask…”, and there are a lot of surprising takes that you might not expect. 

We’d love to know about your favorite guilty pleasures in the watch world, so be sure to leave those picks in the comments, or tag us on Instagram.


This week’s episode of the Worn & Wound podcast is brought to you by Citizen and their iconic line of Eco-Drive watches. For over 40 years, Citizen has been producing watches with Eco-Drive technology. Highly efficient and versatile, Citizen Eco-Drive watches are powered by any light – artificial, natural, and even dim light. Eco-Drive watches never need a battery replacement and once fully charged, many models will operate for 6 months with no light source. Some of our favorite Eco-Drive models include the ultra-thin Eco-Drive One, Promaster Nighthawk, and the Super Titanium Armor.
