The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 28: A Good Week for Chronograph Lovers

Share this story:

Just like the title says, it was a good week (give or take a day or two) for chronographs. Longines put out a killer, vintage-inspired watch in the form of the Avigation BigEye. Then, Sinn blew our collective minds with its announcement of the EZM 1.1, a reissue of sorts of the brand’s legendary central minutes chronograph. And finally, Damasko had a (soft) release of its own central minutes chronographsomething that the brand has been working on years nowin the form of the robust and tactical  DC 80.

Today, our contributor from across the pond, Brad Homes, joins Zach and myself on the show to discuss these three great watches, and why they’re great news for all the chronograph lovers out there. We also talk to Brad about how he got into watches, his collecting habits, and some of his regrets.
