This week, it’s about Mr. Jon Bues. Of course, you likely definitely realize that Jon’s been filling in as our senior supervisor since 2017 and that he’s a genuine master on the Rolex GMT-Master , yet there’s much more to him than simply that. Jon’s somebody that I’ve known since my soonest days covering the watch business – we in a real sense met at different occasions my absolute first week at HODINKEE – and our professions have run into each other at many focuses throughout the long term. He’s been a piece of the watch and media universes for over 10 years and a half, and he’s seen a considerable amount change throughout that time. Try not to stress, we’ll get into the entirety of that and a ton more.
Our discussion begins with the essentials, from Jon’s youth in Connecticut to how he originally ventured into the watch world as a duplicate proofreader at iW magazine (where he initially saw names like Jack Forster, for instance). We cover his different posts at magazines like Wristwatch and Watch Journal, how he in the long run joined the HODINKEE group, and what has occurred in the watch world as computerized media detonated in a very print-driven culture. We, obviously, talk about our first Baselworld encounters and how Jon’s own watch assortment has advanced all through his vocation. We likewise get into his affection for great lager, great food, and an extraordinary outing. Regardless of sitting opposite Jon at HODINKEE HQ, I took in a lot of new things about him during our visit, and I’m certain you will too.
Want more HODINKEE editorial manager goodness? You’re in karma. I’ve recently plunked down and talked with Joe Thompson , Jack Forster , Cara Barrett , James Stacey , and, obviously, Ben Clymer , our originator and brave pioneer.

This has been Jon’s go-to watch throughout the most recent couple of months while he’s been telecommuting. It’s the latest expansion to his assortment and a watch that he realized he needed from the second he previously saw it soon after Baselworld 2019. At last, he had the option to get his hands on one (recollect, the Rolex GMT-Master II isn’t something you can simply stroll into a store and purchase), and it didn’t disillusion the slightest bit. It helps him to remember his affection for movement and that he’ll be so eager to take off again once everything is protected and clear.
