This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, we’re joined by special guest Kyle Snarr, Co-founder of Cantonment. Kyle’s been on the podcast before to chat about his brand and all things EDC, but today he joins us to take part in our semi-regular series where we look at a movie with a focus on time or with some notable watch content and dissect it from a watch enthusiast’s perspective. This week: James Cameron’s Aliens, his 1986 sequel to Ridley Scott’s classic Alien, and the second film in what would become a surprisingly durable franchise.
The watch content in Aliens is well known to many, with two classic Seikos designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro making prominent appearances. We talk about those watches in this conversation, as well as the lesser known Seiko Pulsemeter watch that also gets some screen time. And we also imagine what watch we’d choose if we were making an Alien film today, a task that’s not as simple as it sounds.
We definitely think this podcast can be enjoyed even if you haven’t seen Aliens, but be warned that we do discuss some pretty major spoilers, so if for some reason you want to maintain the mystery a little longer on this 35 year old film, the pod should probably wait until after you’ve had a chance to see it. Once you’ve listened, be sure to let us know in the comments what your favorite movie in the Alien franchise is, and what watch from the movie you’d choose for yourself.
