The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 43: Talking Gavox with Michael Happé


On this week’s episode of The Worn & Wound Podcast, we talk to Michael Happé, the proprietor of Gavox. Founded in 2011, Gavox is a micro-brand that goes back to the early days of Worn & Wound. We’ve reviewed a number of watches from the brand, among them the Avidiver, Legacy Navy, and the incredibly unique Aurora. Today, we talk to Michael about how he got into watches, the challenges he faced getting the unique Aurora project off the ground, and what’s in store for Gavox in the future.

This week’s episode is brought to you by StockX.

The Gavox Aurora remains one of the coolest, most-purposeful watches we’ve ever had the pleasure of reviewing.
