The World’s Leading Watch Authority Now Has a Print Edition

Hodinkee's getting a magazine, and John Mayer is involved

The beauty of a watch is that it’s a tactile experience. You can see and feel the craftsmanship.

Same thing goes for magazines.

Which is why Hodinkee, arguably the premier digital authority on horology, just launched a high-end print edition.

But Hodinkee (the mag) won’t just showcase luxury timepieces — the journal promises to cover similarly minded subjects like cars, architecture, travel and style. According to Managing Editor Stephen Pulvirent, these stories require a “different visual language.” As well, the semi-gloss stock and narrow footprint means the mag is more akin to a softcover coffee table book than, say, an issue of US Weekly.

The 160-page Volume I, available now for preorder ($27) and arriving September 27th, includes a cover story on Paul Newman’s Daytona watch, an in-depth history of the Rolex Sea-Dweller, an analysis of the first-gen Porsche 911 and a Q&A with Patek Philippe CEO Thierry Stern, along with contributions from musician John Mayer and celebrity chef Alton Brown.

But hurry: Only 500 issues are available, and only through Hodinkee’s site. New issues will be released every spring and fall.
