Most vintage military watch collectors cherish the treasures they have acquired, especially those that have managed to remain close to pristine despite the passage of time. Unfortunately, due to their rarity and fragile nature, they are often too delicate to wear. What if there were a brand that created faithful reproductions of classic wartime pieces but manufactured to today’s standards and using today’s technology? Introducing the Praesidus A-11 Type 44. It is a contemporary-sized recreation of the Bulova A-11, which was worn by the good guys in WWII. It features a modern Soprod manual wind movement with a completely sterile dial. How wonderful would it be to wear one of these nostalgic pieces without the risk of damaging an irreplaceable heirloom?

If you are a child of the 80s or 90s and are reading this, there is an excellent chance you had an iteration of the G-Shock 5600 at some point. It might even have been one of your earliest timepieces, accompanying you through significant life events. Now, more than 40 years after its creation, G-Shock has released another variation. This one evokes nostalgia without contributing more plastic waste into the universe. That is because it is made of waste-recycled resin, and the process creates a very cool black, red, and yellow speckled polymer that sets it apart. It still possesses all the useful features we have come to love and expect, but unlike the original, this one is solar-powered, eliminating the need for battery changes.

Are you a devoted, unapologetic watch enthusiast like us? If you have made it this far into the article and are on Worn & Wound, chances are you are. A short while ago, our founders Zach Weiss and Blake Malin asked designer Matt Smith-Johnson (@teenage.grandpa on IG) to create a wearable internal team gift that brings joy to people. When our team members began sharing their awesome caps on social media, it sparked so much interest that the guys decided to expand on the original concept. Now, you can enjoy them too! Go check out our Good Times, I’m Square Don’t Care and Stay Golden t-shirts and caps. Isn’t it time for you to wear your watch-nerdiness on your sleeve?

“Be prepared” is the scout’s motto, and it is a great way to approach life. Part of being prepared is having the right tool at the right time. How often have you found yourself in need of a box cutter, only to resort to using a key, or require a wire stripper and end up using your teeth instead? Well, Gerber has got you covered and more with the Prybrid Utility Clip. It not only has the ability to handle those tasks, but it also features a convenient bottle opener, a cord-cutting notch, a pair of flathead screwdrivers, and a pry bar! With the ability to replace the utility blade and G10 scales, this tool will last a lifetime. Wouldn’t you feel more prepared with one of these in your pocket?
