The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 26: A Chat with Andreas Bentele of Fortis Watches


Fortis is a brand that gets its fair share of coverage on Worn & Wound, and it’s coverage that’s well-deserved. The storied Swiss watchmaker has grown by leaps and bounds the last couple of years with a newer, younger team at the helm dedicated to revamping the brand’s catalog, bringing down SKUs, and focusing on value-driven, high-quality horology. Joining us today on The Worn & Wound Podcast is Andreas Bentele, Director of Marketing for Fortis, to discuss the brand, its recent growth, and what the future holds in store.

But before we get to that, Blake tells us all about his eclipse-viewing experience from the path of totality. Needless to say, his experience was far cooler than ours here in NYC.
