Worn & Wound Presents: A Selection of Podcasts from our Virtual Windup Watch Fair Guests

Share this story:

Earlier this month, the Worn & Wound team brought the Windup Watch Fair to your smart phones through the magic of Instagram live. We chatted with brand owners and got exclusive previews of new products, saw lots of cool watches, and, yes, struggled through a few technical challenges (for which we humbly thank you for your patience). 

If you missed out on our IG livestreams, fear not: today, we’re sharing this massive trove of Worn & Wound podcasts from the past where we spoke to many of the personalities who joined us recently for the Virtual Windup Watch Fair. We’ve been chatting with the people behind your favorite watches since the podcast began, so if you’ve just started listening, this is a great opportunity to dig into the archives. Download them all, grab your headphones, and enjoy!

Episode 11: A Conversation with Jonathan Ferrer of Brew Watch Co.

Here’s an early W&W pod, with Jonathan from Brew. When Jonathan joined us on IG live a few weeks ago, he broke the news that he’s working on a bracelet to match his design forward watches that are inspired by, among other things, coffee culture. In this podcast, recorded just two years into Brew’s existence, Jonathan discusses the inspiration behind the watches he creates, and how he runs his brand completely solo.

Episode 12: A Conversation with R.T. Custer of Vortic Watch Company

If you saw R.T. Custer’s Instagram Live, you were treated to a tour of the Vortic workshop, and got to see just how he and his colleagues take very old, sometimes forgotten about pocket watches, and turn them into wearable links to the past. This podcast is yet another interesting look back at a brand in their early days, carving out a niche for themselves.

Episode 54: Sylvain Dolla, CEO of Hamilton Watch Company 

Sylvain has been kind enough to join us a few times to talk about all things Hamilton. It’s a good thing, because one podcast isn’t enough to discuss a brand with such a long history covering so many different kinds of watches over the years. This is the first time Sylvain appeared on the podcast, where he discusses Hamilton’s military history, special editions, and a lot more.

Episode 85: Lauren and Lorenzo Ortega of Lorier Watches 

Few brands have the rabid fanbase that Lorier can claim, and in Lauren and Lorenzo’s recent chat with Zach Weiss over Instagram Live, the comments were overwhelmed with fans asking about long anticipated new releases as the brand owners discussed their philosophy of making watches that can stand the test of time. On this episode of the podcast, the Lorier team talks about how they got their start, and where they’re headed.

Jimmy Collins is one of the most interesting characters in the independent watch scene.

Episode 103: Hamilton Electric Watches with Jarett Harkness of Unwind in Time

When Jarett joined us on Instagram Live, he treated us to a tour through the history of electric watches, proudly displaying his expertly curated collection of electric watches, mostly from Hamilton, but also Bulova and other brands who used these once state-of-the-art movements. Jarett is a true fountain of information on a highly specialized niche in watch history and watch collecting, and this podcast is indispensable for vintage watch lovers, and anyone curious about electric movements.

Episode 107: Steve Laughlin of Raven Watches 

Few people in the independent watch scene have the experience and knowledge that Steve does, so we were happy to have him on one of our first Instagram livestreams during the Virtual Windup Watch Fair. Be sure to check out this podcast that we recorded with him last year, where he discusses his time in the microbrand world, Raven watches, and a whole lot more.
