Hodinkee Magazine – Volume 08
The HODINKEE Magazine examines watches and the world that surrounds them, as HODINKEE always has, but also looks at collectible cars, architecture, travel, and style. It brings a new dimension to HODINKEE, perfectly complementing the online coverage we do every day.
The HODINKEE Magazine embodies HODINKEE. And as we evolve, the magazine evolves right along with us.
HODINKEE Magazine, Volume 8, considers timekeeping (and time itself) from every possible angle. It welcomes enthusiasts and curious newcomers at every level of interest.
In this magazine, we see horology as a portal into the big ideas that make the world go round. Watches are a way to talk about craftsmanship, for example. To celebrate the artisans who spend their days making microscopic dial adjustments in service of something special to wear.
Watches also provide a way to explore personal style. To ask ourselves: Who do we want to be today? And to find a timepiece that presents this specific identity to everyone we meet.
Watches conjure travel and adventure. The ones in this issue transport us from Switzerland to Mexico, and then blast us into outer space.
Watches encompass culture. Sports. Movies and music. Drawing and graphic design.
