This week on the podcast, Blake Buettner, Zach Weiss, Zach Kazan, and Ed Jelley have gathered to talk about, among other things, the recently completed Grand Prix Horlogerie d’Geneve, better known as GPHG. Every year, some of the biggest names in watchmaking come together in Geneva to celebrate, well, each other. Some of the awards left us scratching our heads (it was news to us that Louis Vuitton made the best dive watch of the year), but plenty of Worn & Wound favorites took home prizes, including Grand Seiko and MB&F. As is frequently the case when the whole crew joins in on the podcast, many unusual tangents are explored, including hot takes on Squid Game, what’s really going on with the dial on that Tadao Ando Octo Finissimo from earlier this year, and the best watches to wear when you’re in a mosh pit. The team also talks about Blake’s recent editorial on finding your lane in the world of watch collecting, and buying what speaks to you, as opposed to answering the siren song of the influencer.
