The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep 296: Phil Toledano, aka Mr. Enthusiast

This week on the podcast, Blake sits down with Phil Toledano, an artist, photographer, and watch collector who you might know from his @misterenthusiast Instagram handle, and his Viva Bastardo line of clothing and accessories. Phil has, by his own admission, taste that is somewhat peculiar, and a look through his IG feed reveals watches of shapes, sizes, and colors that even seasoned collectors might not be familiar with. This is a fun and wide ranging conversation that covers everything from the strangeness of 1970s Patek, the use of artificial intelligence in Phil’s latest work, and a short tease of an upcoming watch project that Phil is launching later this year. There’s also a whole lot of car talk (Phil is a major car enthusiast) and a pretty deep exploration of how sentimentality works its way into our hobby, and our collections.
