This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, we’re asking the age old question: what’s in a name? Not in the Shakespearean sense, but in the world of watches, what we call these things that we strap to our wrist can have an outsized impact on how we perceive them. We take Zach Weiss’s recent review of the Grand Seiko SBGE225 as the jumping off point to try to decide what, exactly, this watch is, sitting somewhere adjacent to a travel watch, a sports watch, and even a dive watch. In the end, does it really matter? Does a watch need to fit neatly into a certain genre for it to hold an appeal, or is the opposite true?
We also talk about some of the content to appear on the site in the last week, including a new limited edition from Oris, and Blake’s review of a highly anticipated new watch from Citizen, dubbed simply “The Citizen.” This one proved to be something of a love-it or hate-it release, so let us know where you stand in the comments or on Instagram.
Be sure to let us know how you feel watches that seem to bend genres, and what your favorite #GADA watches are, and why.
