The HODINKEE Magazine is back with Volume 4! As you can see on our cover, which features one of the great chronograph movements of all time – the legendary Longines 13ZN – we’re putting watches front and center with this one.
The HODINKEE Magazine is a beautiful soft-cover print publication that celebrates our editors' abiding love of watches in addition to their interests in other things that we think HODINKEE readers will enjoy, including collectible cars, design, style, travel, and more. Every article is painstakingly researched, reported, and edited; every photograph is carefully taken and selected; every story is chosen to be compelling and surprising, yet timeless. Our desire is that readers will able to pick up any volume of the magazine years down the road and find value and interest inside.
The HODINKEE Magazine, Volume 4

For Volume 4, we searched high and low for a diverse range of stories and personalities we knew would be of great interest to HODINKEE readers. We take a close look at the motorcycle collection of Stuart Parr, a fixture of the New York art and design scene, whose assemblage of vintage racing bikes is one the finest of its kind in the entire world. Parr’s passion for the Italian two wheel is palpable, and after our day spent with him in Eastern Long Island, we couldn’t wait to tell his story. You can find an extended version of this story online right here too.
Our founder Ben Clymer pulls back the curtain on one of the most interesting, but least discussed, areas of vintage Rolex collecting to tell the story of the ref. 8171. This large Rolex calendar watch with moonphase display was produced in very low numbers in the aftermath of World War II. Ben’s exclusive look into collector Drew Sobel’s trio of 8171s – two in steel and one in pink gold – represents some of the finest scholarship on this reference that is the holy grail for a close community of dedicated collectors.
Our visit to New Hope, Pennsylvania, to meet with Mira Nakashima, the second-generation head of George Nakashima Woodworkers, yields an in-depth look into how the internationally renowned furniture company her father founded still practices its mission in the same way it always has, even as Mira’s work has continued to enjoy more and more interest from collectors.
Brunello Cucinelli runs his multibillion-dollar cashmere empire from a castle perched on an Umbrian hill. Jack Forster traveled to Solomeo to meet and interview Cucinelli, surely one of the most interesting and intellectual figures operating in today's fashion world.
One of the leading music photographers of all time, Bruce Talamon, talks about his love of watches – and in particular his Rolex GMT-Master, which he has worn faithfully over a career that has seen him photograph many of the most popular and beloved musical acts of the last 50 years, from Stevie Wonder to Aretha Franklin.
Longtime Esquire fashion director Nick Sullivan takes to our pages to write about the Hermès watch that is nearly always on his wrist.*
And in Reference Points, we take a look at several of the key watches that have, over the years, employed the self-winding Zenith El Primero Chronograph, a caliber that turns 50 this year.*
