Today HODINKEE confirmed the release of their first ever print magazine. While the magazine, of course, covers watches (and a lot of them), it also looks at collectable cars, architecture, travel, and style, adding even more context to the world of watches we cover every day online. It brings a new dimension to HODINKEE, complementing the stories you’re used to seeing right here while showcasing the HODINKEE lifestyle in a whole new way.
The HODINKEE Magazine allows the website to tell stories that might not fit right online for one reason or another. Whether it’s that they require a different visual language, aren’t exclusively about watches, or just flat out feel better on the printed page, there were plenty of ideas they had to draw from when they started filling out the table of contents for Volume 1. In the end, they’ve created something that has all the character and personality of HODINKEE, just with a slightly wider lens.
Volume 1, covers a variety of topics and includes a lot of different voices, some of which you’ve heard from before on HODINKEE and others that are new. Stories included are an in-depth history of the Rolex Sea-Dweller (celebrating its 50th anniversary this year), a deep analysis of the first generation Porsche 911 from 1965 and a conversation with Patek Philippe CEO Thierry Stern. The magazines very first cover story looks at the long, strange path that led Paul Newman’s own Paul Newman Daytona to the auction block, including first-hand accounts from the people who spent the last decade trying to make the watch their own.
Contributors include musician John Mayer, Berluti CEO and Loro Piana Chairman Antoine Arnault, Food Network star Alton Brown, and award-winning author Gary Shteyngart – and the magazine is full of the bold, original photography that you’re used to seeing on HODINKEE. This may just be the most beautiful magazine you’ve ever seen.
