MK II is an American boutique brand focused on producing tool and military-inspired watches with designs honoring some of the greatest mil-spec timekeepers ever created (check out our reviews for the Hawkinge and the Paradive, which pay homage to the iconic MK XI spec and the Benrus Type I diver, respectively). On the first 2019 episode of The Worn & Wound Podcast, our Managing Editor Ilya Ryvin sits down with MK II proprietor, Bill Yao, to chat about everything from the his early days of modding Seiko’s, to the launch of MK II’s ready-to-wear collection.
