Ben Clymer – Becoming A Watch Collector With Hodinkee

Want to turn an obsession into a profession? Let Ben Clymer, the founder of watch site HODINKEE, show you how.

When Mr Ben Clymer was 16, his grandfather removed an Omega Speedmaster from his wrist and gave it to him. Thus began an obsession with vintage timepieces that has since swallowed much of Mr Clymer’s time and money. That comparatively modest watch remains the most cherished piece in what is now, 16 years later, an extensive and expensively assembled collection.

When I left my high-paying banking job to be a watch blogger, my parents were a little upset. But for the first time in my life I really loved what I was doing.
