worn&wound 2015 Retrospective


It’s pretty crazy that 2015 is coming to an end… this year flew by like none other. And for good reason too… we wrote a lot of articles, made a lot of products and achieved some pretty lofty goals we had set for ourselves. For one thing, we released our first ever watch, done in collaboration with Avi-8… which are all but sold out. Then, we set out to create the first ever watch fair for affordable wrist watches, Wind-Up: NYC. It was a huge success that far exceeded our expectations (we’ll have one more post on that this week, with some great video of the event). We also almost tripled our instagram followers from this time last year (20k > 57k) and nearly doubled our Facebook followers from 50k – 95k…oh, and at some point, were honored by the designation of our very own pose.

So where do we go from here? Well, only time will tell… but I can say that we’re only planning on doing more, making more and having as much fun as possible along the way.

Below you’ll find 12 of our favorite posts from w&w, one per month. It’s hard to pick just 12, so be sure to browse our archives and watch review grid to check out what we were up to in 2015.
See you in 2016, and happy new years!
