Today, we’ve got something a little different in the Worn & Wound podcast feed. Top Gun: Maverick hit theaters a little more than a week ago, and it has quickly caused a flurry of discussion in the watch enthusiast community. As you’d expect, there are a lot of watches to be spotted throughout the film, almost to the point of distraction. From a tropical Rolex Explorer to a slightly out of place vintage IWC stopwatch, there’s a lot to take in if you’re a watch lover. It’s also an incredible example of the summer blockbuster, and it inspired Zach Kazan and our own Kyle Snarr to jump on a call and record their thoughts on the film’s watches, the need for speed, and what their call signs would be in an alternate reality where they’re Naval Aviators and not merely watch and movie nerds.
Spoilers abound in the second half of this conversation, so feel free to dip out after the watch talk subsides. And be sure to let us know in the comments what you thought of Maverick if you’ve seen it.
We hope you enjoy this bonus episode of the Worn & Wound podcast – regular episodes will resume right on schedule Wednesday morning, so stay tuned.
