The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep 320: New Materials and Record Setting Lightness from Omega and Ming

This week on the podcast, Blake welcomes Zach Weiss and Zach Kazan to talk about a pair of recent releases from Omega and Ming that cover similar ground in their use of interesting and uncommon materials, all in the name of reducing weight. The new Omega Planet Ocean diver uses a titanium movement to cut weight in a package that’s already quite chunky, and the Ming LW.01 is a literal record setter, lighter in weight than any other mechanical watch.These non-traditional watches have us thinking about the merits of lighter weight watches in general and also the use of new materials more broadly, these two new releases in particular inspired quite a bit of conversation.
