Worn and Wound has been a go-to site for watch fanatics since May of 2011, when founders Zach Weiss and Blake Malin launched a blog that focused on affordable, but serious, pieces. In 2012, they expanded the site to include an online shop where they sell stylish and understated straps and cases. This spring, Worn and Wound released the waxed Watch Fold, which is an updated take on the watch roll. For frequent travelers who haven’t found one watch for every occasion, it’s a game changer.
More travel-friendly than the bulky, cylindrical watch rolls that populate the marketplace, the Watch Fold fits in your bag like a wallet. Slim and lightweight, it has a layer of interior padding that will protect your timepieces when they get knocked around on the road. The double-pocket design means it holds two watches, but one can easily be swapped for sunglasses if you’re looking to minimize cargo.
And it’s a handsome piece. Made from hunter green waxed twill canvas with a suede lining, it’s trimmed with black or tan heavy Italian leather that matches the wraparound straps. [$79; shop.wornandwound.com]
