HODINKEE Radio The Collector's Edition With Ben Clymer – Featuring Ed Sheeran

For the first of a brand new series, Ben chats with Ed Sheeran about watch collecting, the ebb and flow of Patek Philippe, and the untold flexibility of ketchup.


This week's episode of HODINKEE Radio marks the start of a new and very special series called The Collector's Edition With Ben Clymer. Presented within the same feed as surprise episodes, follow along with HODINKEE's founder (that's Ben) as he speaks with notable friends and watch enthusiasts about what it means to be a collector. For the inaugural episode, we're thrilled to have international pop icon Ed Sheeran on for a chat with Ben about his start in watch enthusiasm, his tastes for specific brands, his personal path to a deep love of Patek Philippe, and more.

We're also pleased to share a full video element for the series, which you can view above. If you prefer the audio-only podcast treatment, you can find (and subscribe to) the HODINKEE Radio feed here – (iTunes, for just about any podcast app) or (Spotify). 

From Ed's first car (not what you might expect) to his love of Heinz ketchup, and his personal experience waiting (a very long time) for a 5711, this is a rare opportunity to hear a passionate and well-known collector speak candidly about his own experience with watches, how he approaches the latest and greatest, and how his tastes have evolved over time. Thanks so much for listening and be sure to subscribe to the above feeds so that you don't miss the next episode of The Collector's Edition With Ben Clymer.

Please Note: This episode of HODINKEE Radio features some adult language and, from 38:40 - 39:15, and a full spoiler for the plot and outcome of the latest James Bond film, No Time to Die
