Here we are. Scene One of HODINKEE Radio. Choosing how we needed to dismiss things from wasn’t simple, and there were a couple of thoughts tossed around that sounded bounty great. However, at last, we concluded that there was just a single method to do this: We needed to return to the beginning.
I plunked down one-on-one with HODINKEE author and CEO Ben Clymer to discuss the beginning of HODINKEE and to go on a bit of outing through a world of fond memories. At the point when I began at HODINKEE in 2012, as a new confronted kid directly out of school, it was only both of us in a little WeWork office. We came in each day hungry to locate an incredible story to review, we hand-stuffed fake watch prices ties for HODINKEE Shop clients, and we considered how we planned to make this into something special.
In a few different ways, a ton has changed over the most recent six years – we’re currently 28 individuals with a committed office, for one – yet from multiple points of view, nothing has changed. That equivalent degree of energy and eagerness is the thing that keeps us pushing forward what actually characterizes our perspective.
It was incredible to get some an ideal opportunity to return to bygone times with Ben and to discuss things like how HODINKEE began, how fake watch prices gathering has developed in the course of the most recent decade, and that one time Ben was late for a news coverage class since he was hanging out at Jay-Z’s house.
We trust you appreciate Episode One of HODINKEE Radio. Look at the show notes underneath and let us understand your opinion in the comments.
I mean, you needed to expect Ben would carry the warmth to the account studio, correct? What we have here is a 18k gold Rolex Daytona ref. 6263. There’s something so chill about a screw-off Daytona in a valuable metal – it’s sort of an inconsistency, yet in the most ideal way possible.
