Songwriter and musician John Mayer may not be the first individual you would presume to be a proponent of artisanally-crafted Japanese clothing and classic timepieces. Outside of his persona in music, the commercially eminent Connecticut-born artist possesses a profound interest in wristwatches and professes to have been born a watch guy. Taking his interests in Patek Philippe and Rolex among others, and applying them to his own column hosted on HODINKEE, Mayer has slowly established himself as a respected voice through his stance on collecting pieces highly covetable and tasteful and based around story rather than flash. In short, Mayer has helped bring a new perspective to watch collecting for the more mature in a period where many have their sights on sneakers and snapbacks. Likewise with timepieces, Mayer has become an unofficial celebrity spokesperson for Japan’s visvim, often sighted dressed head-to-toe in the Hiroki Nakamura-designed label.
