Ep. 174: Buying Watches Online

This week on the Worn & Wound podcast, Blake Buettner, Blake Malin, and Zach Kazan run down the week that was in watches, and talk about a topic that’s certainly of interest to almost anyone reading this: purchasing watches online. More than ever, many of the biggest watch manufacturers are doing what the small brands have been doing for years: selling directly to consumers. We talk about how that’s impacting the hobby, the changing landscape of buying watches online, and our own experiences buying watches in almost every way you can imagine. We also discuss the culture of the limited edition, and how a quick sell-out can help a brand or retailer in the short term, but have unintended consequences in the long run. And, of course, we cover all the big watch news and releases of the last week, including our own reviews of an iconic Grand Seiko, and a special Zenith chronograph.Show NotesBlake Malin’s wrist check: Astor & Banks FortitudeZach’s wrist check: Furlan Marri “Havana Salmon” Meca-quartz ChronographBlake Buettner’s wrist check: Marathon NavigatorYema x Worn & Wound Superman Superman Maxi Dial Limited EditionTAG Heuer Carrera “Dato” Limited Edition for HodinkeeZach W’s review of the Grand Seiko “Snowflake”Zenith A385 ReviewHands on with the New Omega SpeedmasterMing’s batch sale process for their most recent release
