Share this story:

“Watches, Stories, and Gear” is a roundup of some of our favorite watch content on Worn & Wound, great stories from around the web, and cool gear that we’ve got our eye on.

This installment of “Watches, Stories, and Gear” is brought to you by the Windup Watch Shop.

The Naked Watchmaker
Deconstruction Credor Spring Drive Sonnerie

Though the Credor Spring Drive Sonnerie was unveiled back at Baselworld in 2006, it remains to this day one of the most interesting watches to come from Credor. The watch is, as the name indicates, driven by a Spring Drive caliber, and a manual one at that. But it’s not just any Spring Drive — this one is an hour repeater. This is haute horlogerie at its best, and done in a way that only a brand like Credor would do it. The Naked Watchmaker, one of our favorite horological websites, deconstructed an early prototype of this movement — all 616 components of it. If you’re into seeing what makes this thing tick (and chime), you’ll want to check it out.

As Gothamist reports, Sandler and the Safdies collaborated on a short film during the filming of Uncut Gems, and it’s now available for anyone to view.

Movie fans, over the years, have gotten used to seeing Rotten Tomatoes scores when buying tickets online, or scrolling through any number of services looking for content to rent or stream. This piece in Wired takes a close look behind the scenes of the ubiquitous review aggregator, and the big reveal is that the process that goes into a final score on the Tomatometer is surprisingly human. It’s also a goldmine for useful lingo that you can incorporate into your own film related discussions – just try not to use “Gentleman’s Fresh” after reading this article.

The James Brand
The Elko

We’re all big fans of The James Brand here, and if you’re even a little knife-curious, then you should absolutely consider The Elko. Don’t let its compact size fool you. It features a Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade, and on the its tip you’ll find a pry bar that doubles as a key ring, bottle opener, and screwdriver. The Elko is available in numerous color variations, so there’s an option out there for everyone.
