The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 219: Adventuring with Watches

This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, Blake Buettner and Thomas Calara sit down to talk about some of their recent adventures, and the watches that accompanied them on their 2021 travels. Surfing, hiking, and more were all on the table last year, including a weekend excursion up Mt. Whitney and an exploration of rural Utah (both with Rolex Explorers, naturally). Also included: some helpful tips on what to do when you inevitably encounter a bear on the trail (your watches won’t help you), and a look ahead to new adventures on tap in 2022 (snowboarding is on the itinerary for at least one Worn & Wound editor).
