The worn&wound Podcast Episode 10: Talking American Watchmaking with Ian Schon

Share this story:

Schon DSGN is a one-man shop out of Boston founded in 2011. A product designer and engineer by trade, owner Ian Schon produces a curated selection of wares in-house, and what he doesn’t he sources out to local manufacturers. Schon DSGN is perhaps best known for its series of classic, machined pens. A few years back, however, Ian decided to dip a toe in designing and creating his own watch. What began as a fun side project is now his full-time job.

In episode 10 of The worn&wound Podcast, we sit down with Ian to discuss engineering, design, and watch manufacturing in America, and what the future might hold in store for American watchmakers.

Ilya is Worn & Wound's Managing Editor and Video Producer. He believes that when it comes to watches, quality, simplicity and functionality are king. This may very well explain his love for German and military-inspired watches. In addition to watches, Ilya brings an encyclopedic knowledge of leather, denim and all things related to menswear.
