The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 30: How W&W Got Started


This week, the Worn & Wound team got together to talk about something we don’t often cover: ourselves. We often get asked how Worn & Wound got started, how we approach the watch industry, why we manufacture in America, etc., so we wanted take the opportunity to discuss all that–and the Podcast seemed like the best way to do it.

Joining Zach, Ilya, and Blake on today’s episode is James Helms, one of Worn & Wound’s partners. If you’ve ever emailed us about the shop or our products, then you’ve already had the pleasure of dealing with James. So thanks for tuning in, and we hope you enjoy the show.
