For the second edition of our print magazine, we’ve got something very special for you.
Today, we’re very proud to announce that Volume 2 of the HODINKEE Magazine is now available in the HODINKEE Shop. The second edition of our print magazine is filled with fascinating stories examining new and vintage watches, in addition to many other features that are sure to excite HODINKEE readers.
When we launched the HODINKEE Magazine back in September 2017, it represented a new direction for us, a new way to tell compelling stories about the things we love. It allowed us to expand our gaze to cover all of the things that live alongside watches in our lives – such as cars, fashion, architecture, and technology – and to build an even stronger sense of what HODINKEE stands for in the broader cultural landscape.
After the overwhelmingly positive response, we knew we had to follow up Volume 1 with something pretty special. I think we’ve done just that and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you all.
Just like its predecessor, the HODINKEE Magazine, Volume 2 covers many different topics and includes a number of voices that you don’t see here every day. Stories include a rare glimpse into one of the world’s most impressive collections of vintage Leica cameras, an in-depth story on the making and collecting of the BMW M1, and a beautifully photographed story on some of London’s most controversial architectural masterpieces.
And then there’s our cover story. Our founder Ben Clymer sat down with Apple Chief Design Officer Jony Ive, himself a longtime watch lover, for an expansive interview covering everything Apple Watch and a whole lot more. In this 16-page feature, Ive talks about his own fascination with the classics of Swiss mechanical watchmaking, the unprecedented steps Apple took in developing its first wearable product, and how he thinks about the future of technology on the wrist, while Ben himself reflects on what it means to be talking watches at Apple Park with arguably this generation’s greatest designer. There are also exclusive photos of Ive at Apple Park, including one of the coolest wristshots of all time.
The more watch-focused stories include an in-depth look at calendar watches by Jack, „Reference Points: Patek Philippe Calatrava“ by Cara, and Ben’s personal story of discovering and growing to love rare waterproof chronographs from Universal Genève.
We’ve drawn on a who’s who of contributors and friends to create a magazine unlike any other, with stories and interviews by the likes of filmmaker Spike Lee, actor and watch collector James Marsden, former Wired editor-in-chief Scott Dadich, Michelin-star chef Daniel Humm, and more.
More To Enjoy
While we still believe the stories in the HODINKEE Magazine are best enjoyed on paper, there are unique opportunities to add another dimension to some of the stories by making them available online. Today we’re also launching an online home for the HODINKEE Magazine, which will be occasionally updated with new versions of stories from print that have been expanded with new visual and interactive experiences. We’re launching today with the Jony Ive interview and „Re-Making Modern,“ Stephen’s look inside John Lautner’s historic Harpel House from Volume 1.
We also decided that it was time for HODINKEE Magazine to have its own Instagram account. For extras and outtakes from the making of the magazine, as well as stunning photos of all the things you’d expect to find in the magazine itself, follow @hodinkeemag on Instagram.
