Considered as one of the most widely read wristwatch publications in the world, HODINKEE has gained a reputation as the go-to platform for the industry’s most interesting and unique timepieces. Leading the mainstay and its cohort of discerning writers is 32-year-old Executive Editor Benjamin Clymer, who in his own time, is also a watch adviser to a slew of celebrity clienteles — think John Mayer and J.J. Redick. For our latest installment of Essentials, Clymer shares with us key lifestyle items imperative to his success. A selection of cameras are instrumental to Clymer’s daily editorial work, and are placed next to the HODINKEE Loupe System: a high-end loupe designed specially for watch enthusiasts to assess the quality of their timepieces. The long-time watch collector also shares with us some of his coveted possessions — the 1963 Rolex Daytona, 1967 Heuer Carrera and 1961 Omega Speedmaster — and as a man who appreciates class and authenticity, Clymer opts for aged Hennessy Black as his preferred cognac for relaxation. Enjoy his Essentials and head to HODINKEE for features and reviews on high caliber watches.
