Benjamin Clymer is the young founder and executive editor of HODINKEE, the Web’s leading daily resource on fine wristwatches. HODINKEE quickly gained renown for its playful and creative take on the traditionally staid topic of wristwatches. Clymer and his team can be found putting a bevy of timepieces through their paces each day with hands-on reviews, full-feature brand profiles, and spotlights on the industry’s more esoteric oddities. From time to time you may even find them dropping a watch off a bridge, hitting it with a hammer, or driving over it with a $300,000 supercar. Clymer has written on the topic of fine wristwatches for the likes of <i>Men’s Journal</i>, <i>The Financial Times</i>, "How To Spend It," numerous trade publications, and our very own <i>Gilt MANual</i>.
Make an impression this holiday season with our latest set of vintage timepieces — anchored by one of the most desired vintage watches in the world, the Paul Newman Daytona — curated especially by Hodinkee founder Ben Clymer.
