Worn & Wound Now Selling Watches

Postby Racer-X » August 20th 2018, 4:13pm

"Because of the editorial work we’ve done with Worn & Wound—we’re in the unique position to help tell the story of who these brands are, where they’re from, and what makes them tick. In the new Windup Watch Shop, we’ll be showcasing these watches in a way that other marketplaces don’t, with original lifestyle photography that contextualizes each brand and highlights some of our favorite things about them.

Since most of these watches and brands are not available to buy or try-on in person, we took that into account during the design of the Windup Watch Shop. We believe that our detailed descriptions and original photographs will help the hesitant buyer feel confident in making their new purchase.

As with our blog and event series, the Windup Watch Shop aims to create a truly unique experience. The first eleven brands we’ve curated for the shop represent a diverse cross section of the watch market that you won’t find anywhere else, and the design of our brand new online shop showcases the product in a dynamic, engaging way."

Christ on a bike! Another blog selling watches?! As if there weren't enough advertorial sites already, and as if the fucking Donkeys with their advertorial braying and their potty Shop weren't enough of a sordid wee bunch of pesty, fucking peddlers! By Jove!

"curated"... right.

The Dan Henrys are going to make their $150 straps look a bit silly.

Aint nuthin wrong with trying to make a buck. Printed magazines need 60% paid ads to turn a profit. If sites like W&W and Hood-winkee choose to sell watches to pay their employees and keep their doors open, I have no problem with that.

I have to agree. And just because they're selling them doesn't mean we have to buy them. I find Worn & Wound far less annoying than most watch sites, and their yearly watch sale event here in NYC is a stone hoot.
