The Worn & Wound Podcast Ep. 194: A Conversation with Ben Clymer, Founder of Hodinkee

This week on the podcast, Blake Buettner, Zach Weiss, and Blake Malin are joined by Hodinkee’s Ben Clymer for a wide ranging discussion reflecting on a long, shared history in the watch media landscape. Ben is the founder and Executive Chairman of Hodinkee, and in the thirteen years since he started the website, it’s grown into a leading resource for all things watches, a one-stop retail shop for new, vintage, and pre-owned watches, and a whole lot more. As Worn & Wound celebrates its tenth anniversary, it was a great time to sit down with Ben and talk about how the watch world has changed over the last decade, and how far both Worn & Wound and Hodinkee have come. Ben also touches on his evolving perspective on vintage watches (which might surprise you if you’ve been reading Hodinkee since the early days), the small brands he has an eye on, and why the watches he has a hand in making are his favorites. This is a great conversation that you won’t want to miss if you’re a regular reader of either site.
