This year has been another triumphant one for premier watch blog HODINKEE and its Executive Editor Ben Clymer. Solidifying its position at the top of online watch journalism, HODINKEE continued to provide consistent international coverage on the happenings in the world of horology this year, having become a familiar face at prestigious events like Baselworld and SIHH, as well as reporting historic events, the most notable of which was the auction of the exquisite Patek Philippe Henry Graves Jr. Supercomplication in November. The publication also branched ever further into novel collaborations with brands like Freemans Sporting Club alongside its annual fashion capsule with Drake’s of London, and August saw Clymer establish the HODINKEE Fund as a conscious effort to support and fund innovation and new talent in the tradition of horology through community outreach and aiding young watchmakers.
