In this article we go all over again. Given that the remaining minutes on the year 2012 tick absent, it's time for you to recap the earlier twelve months inside the land of HODINKEE. And, we are going to run the figures to indicate you which ones ten (okay, perhaps twenty) posts were quite possibly the most well-liked this year.
To mention 2012 was an enormous 12 months for us will be an understatement. The location has developed immensely in excess of the previous twelve months, and wondering back again, it seems like there was a thing huge going on for us nearly every week! We were the primary on the planet to point out you the new Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Jumbo with "AP" at 6, the main on the globe to indicate you the initial truly complex Rolex inside of a technology, the Sky-Dweller, plus the first on the earth to indicate you the incredible strategy watch from Cartier that would incredibly perfectly be the future of watchmaking - the ID2.
But HODINKEE is just not about staying the primary - it's about bringing you obtain to things that no person else can. So, it was with great excitement that in May possibly, we welcomed a whole new columnist for the group - a real look at lover and occasional singer/songwriter/unbelievable guitarist - Mr. John Mayer.
All over a similar time, we introduced you to definitely the HODINKEE Shop, that's alive and stronger than previously due to your support. As well as in scenario you skipped it, we also designed our very own established of knit ties using the astounding Drake's of London, which happen to be for sale inside the store at this time.
In June, we had been the one outlet to give really serious consideration to what was truly a sale of historic amounts - the Henry Graves & Pete Fullerton collection at Sotheby's NY - right here is another look at some of those watches, though it was this unique and oversized platinum Patek that was the belle in the ball (and it was so costly to make, Patek actually sold it at a loss!). I even walked away from the Graves sale with a little a thing for myself.
But it had been in July that issues really changed for us. After months of hard work and planning, we re-launched HODINKEE with an entirely new look. We thought about what you, our readers, would want and we came up with easier navigation, improved functionality, new features and last but certainly not least - giant images. The feedback was awesome, and we want to thank all of our friends who wrote about the launch. Hell, the launch even made it into Elle Magazine, which, you know, ain't bad for a "watch blog."
We followed up the re-launch with some fantastic, in-depth reviews, and feature stories (you need to read both this and this, if you haven't yet), did a whole bunch of watch-spotting, shot a killer video on what I long considered the coolest view on the planet (a platinum Patek Philippe perpetual calendar chronograph belonging to Eric Clapton), launched you to definitely what just one of today's greatest watchmaker's has deemed his "optimal" machine, sent a reader to Switzerland, showed you the new Horological Machine No. 5 in video, started a weekly feature with the best vintage watches on the market on the web, showed you Felix Baumgartner's personal enjoy the day of his historic jump from space, have been the main (and only) publication to go hands-on along with the new travel-time Aquanaut from Patek Philippe, we threw a bunch of parties and held a few pop-up shops, and a whole bunch of other awesome stuff. We even caught the awareness of some friends inside the mainstream press - like the Financial Times, GQ (inside the loosest rendering of my face ever created), and Departures (we are No. 44 on their list of 100 people, places, and factors to know right now). I, embarrassingly, was also on the cover of a magazine. And I wasn't just photo-bombing someone. Ridiculous, I know.
So yeah, 2012 was a good year for us. And our readership has never been much better than it is right now. We owe this entirely to you, our readers, and also the terrific word of mouth you guys give us. So I would like to thank you for that, sincerely. Next year will be even better, I promise you.
Without further ado (and by "ado, rolex stores " i mean thinly veiled boasting about all the dope sh!t we did this year), I present you along with the 10 (plus or minus) most widely used posts of your 12 months, by page views. See you next 12 months!
