This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, we’re discussing the watch collecting lifestyle. It’s a big and somewhat loaded topic, but we wanted to talk about perception versus reality when it comes to watch collecting, the impact of social media on the hobby, and how the visibility of watches in our culture impacts us in large and subtle ways. This week, we’re lucky to be joined by one of our favorite Instagram follows, @watchsymmetry (Thomas, if you prefer to use, you know, real names). Along the way, we answer your questions about watch collecting and the current state of the hobby.
But before that, we talk about some of the key new releases of the past week. This week happened to see a long awaited hand wound chronograph from Hamilton, and some design forward new watches from Tissot and Maurice Lacroix that have proven to be somewhat polarizing, and mesh pretty well with some of the ideas within our main topic.
