All about watches.

In its original form, HODINKEE was a Tumblr site – then 25-year-old Benjamin Clymer’s way of expressing his love for a family keepsake. From there, the website has grown into one of the most reputable names in watches – a place for watch enthusiasts and fans alike to keep up, as it were, with the wide world of timepieces. The month of May marks the five-year anniversary for the website, and accordingly HYPEBEAST took the opportunity to sit down with Clymer to discuss the most memorable watches he’s seen, how the site has developed over time, and the future of watch culture in America. Enjoy the piece above for different perspectives on prestige vintage watches — a nice change from the usual restrictive atmosphere.
