Ben Clymer, the individual who initiated it all, is pleased to introduce the G-SHOCK Ref. 5600 in collaboration with Hodinkee. This timepiece is specifically crafted for the Hodinkee community, featuring nods to vintage divers, colors reminiscent of Hodinkee LE editions, and subtle Easter eggs that pay homage to Clymer’s favorite watches.
On the caseback, a Latin saying borrowed from the renowned American collector Henry Graves, Jr., is engraved – Esse Quam Videri, translating to “To be, rather than to seem.” This meaningful slogan has resonated with Clymer for over 13 years, shaping his approach to life. Additionally, at the bottom of the caseback, Clymer expresses his gratitude and appreciation to the Hodinkee community, emphasizing the joy watches can bring into one’s life.
Clymer acknowledges that while nobody necessarily needs a watch, these timepieces can bring immense joy. Expressing gratitude for the Hodinkee community’s choice, he highlights the brand’s commitment to being different – striving to provide a unique, friendlier, and occasionally superior experience. The G-SHOCK Ref. 5600 By Ben Clymer embodies the Hodinkee way of being, rather than seeming.
To give back and pay it forward, Hodinkee pledges to donate $5 from every watch sold to The Horological Society of New York – the country’s oldest watchmaking guild and a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to advancing watchmaking through education. Hodinkee has proudly supported this organization for over a decade.
In response to customer feedback, the G-SHOCK Ref. 5600 By Ben Clymer comes with free domestic shipping and a discounted flat rate for international shipping. Clymer expresses heartfelt thanks for the continuous support of Hodinkee, its mission, and looks forward to the next 15 years of shared passion and dedication.
