In this week’s episode of The worn&wound Podcast, Ilya and Zach are joined by long-time worn&wound contributor Sean Lorentzen to discuss his recent trip with Oris, answer a listener question about sterile dials and dial text, and our overall thoughts on the new IWC “Tribute to Mark XI” (spoiler: we love it).

Sean’s a car guy, so naturally, we talk Giugiaro, too.
