This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, just like Scrooge McDuck, we’re diving headfirst into gold. Zach Weiss recently penned an editorial on his growing interest in gold, and in this episode Blake Buettner and Zach Kazan join him to talk about how gold watches fit into our lives, or could, in theory, someday down the line. We wonder aloud why it is that gold watches gain in our esteem over time, and which gold watches we’d choose for ourselves if money were no object, or if commodities markets simply crashed overnight. And of course we take questions and comments from listeners on your favorite gold watches as well. Before all of that, we discuss some of the week’s big new releases, including new chronographs from Zenith and Omega.
