For the most recent couple of weeks I’ve been going on the west coast, chipping away at some lovely mind boggling projects for HODINKEE. From the HODINKEE Magazine to HODINKEE Radio, we have some great stuff coming. I sincerely couldn’t be more amped up for it. Yet, meanwhile, there have been a lot of great stories here on HODINKEE, and to dismiss this scene from I plunked down with Jack to talk about certain features. From a precious stone dial watch that you can in any case get on a careful spending plan to a questionable super light Omega Seamaster to wearing two watches on the double, there was no deficiency of themes to cover.
The fundamental center this week however is my discussion with Pete Halvorsen , a Los Angeles–based picture taker who has followed the twisting way of his interests to wind up with his fantasy gig. Pete’s somebody I’ve known quite a while through the enchantment of Instagram (where he was a very early adopter – recollect the Hudson channel?) yet this was the first occasion when we at any point had the opportunity to plunk down and talk eye to eye. We cover a huge load of ground, including our common love of 35mm film photography, why vintage watches are more significant now than any other time, and significantly more. I have a strong inclination Pete would fit in beautiful consummately around HODINKEE HQ…
To close out the show, our own Cole Pennington shares a formerly untold story from the profundities of military history. It includes a peculiar Eberhard watch worked for route, the Italian aviation based armed forces flying most of the way across the globe, and a mysterious mission that is still somewhat strange. I will not ruin it anything else than that – you’ll simply need to tune in for the rest.
We trust you appreciate Episode 55 of HODINKEE Radio. Look at the show notes underneath and let us understand your opinion in the comments.
The story of family treasure watches is one we hear a ton, yet Pete has his own interesting interpretation of the typical story. His dad had a 1963 Rolex Submariner ref. 5513 that he wore while serving in the military during the Vietnam War. Upon his return, he sold the watch for a total that will make you jump looking back, so there wasn’t a watch he could really pass down to Pete. Notwithstanding, every one of these years after the fact, Pete had the option to find a 1963 Submariner that is almost indistinguishable from the one his dad wore, re-touching off the family association with that watch. What’s more, don’t stress – this one he intends to keep and give over to his child someday.
