Over a short ten-year time-span, Hodinkee has positioned itself as the preeminent and most distinguished destination for modern and vintage wristwatch enthusiasts. Exiting a career in finance, Ben Clymer decided to fuse his horological and writing passions in order to start a blog discussing everything from new products to vintage wristwatch auctions. Titling his endeavor after the Czech word hodinky, which means 'little watch, ' Clymer sought to create a platform that was casual and accessible to all levels of enthusiasts--within a few years The New York Times dubbed him the "High Priest of Horology." What started as a humble blog quickly transformed into a full-fledged magazine and e-comm hub for some of the world's leading watch brands. Celebrating the decade milestone since Hodinkee's founding, this book captures the storied expertise of the world's leading experts on time. With chapters breaking down chronographs, dive watches, high design, and horological icons, this book is a connoisseur's compendium for the timepiece veterans and novices alike.

Journalist Leander Kahney reveals how CEO Tim Cook has led Apple to astronomical success after the death of Steve Jobs in 2011. The death of Steve Jobs left a gaping void at one of the most innovative companies of all time. Jobs wasn't merely Apple's iconic founder and CEO; he was the living embodiment of a global megabrand. It was hard to imagine that anyone could fill his shoes--especially not Tim Cook, the intensely private executive who many thought of as Apple's "operations drone." But seven years later, as journalist Leander Kahney reveals in this definitive book, things at Apple couldn't be better. Its stock has nearly tripled, making it the world's first trillion dollar company. Under Cook's principled leadership, Apple is pushing hard into renewable energy, labor and environmentally-friendly supply chains, user privacy, and highly-recyclable products. From the massive growth of the iPhone to lesser-known victories like the Apple Watch, Cook is leading Apple to a new era of success. Drawing on access with several Apple insiders, Kahney tells the inspiring story of how one man attempted to replace someone irreplacable, and--through strong, humane leadership, supply chain savvy, and a commitment to his values--succeeded more than anyone had thought possible.

The first watch connoisseur's guide to explore a century of high-performing, stylish chronometers for watersports adventures above and below the waves--sailing, yachting and diving. From the Rolex Submariner, Omega Seamaster and Blancpain Fifty Fathoms to dive watches by DOXA, Tudor, IWC, Patek Philippe and TAG Heuer, SEA TIME: Watches Inspired by Sailing, Yachting and Diving takes a pinpoint-periscope look at more than 100 contemporary and vintage nautical-inspired mechanical timepieces. With a foreword by best-selling adventure novelist Clive Cussler and images by fine-art photographer Peter Eaton Gurnz, SEA TIME--written by Aaron Sigmond and Mark Bernardo--interweaves history, the sailing-countdown chronographs and dive watches' classic style in a comprehensive, first-of-its-kind monograph. A detailed look at the development and history of these oceanic- and coastal-inspired chronometers is followed by an encyclopedic index: chapters include "The Icons" (the dozen most classic dive watches ever made), "Sailing and Regatta Watches," "Dive Watches" and--for those merely lounging instead of plunging into the briny deep--"By the Pool and At the Shore." Informative and visually striking, this captivating guide is the ideal gift for watch collectors and timepiece devotees, as well as all those who have a timeless appreciation for rakish, sporty style. SEA TIME, a sequel to the much-lauded DRIVE TIME: Watches Inspired by Automobiles, Motorcycles and Racing, is, like its predecessor, the first book of its kind.
