Ben responds to the WSJ's "hit piece."

I found myself reading/consuming Hodinkee's editorial content during Watches & Wonders the last two years. Their coverage was pretty good this year.

Ben takes a lot of heat. Photos like this don't help:

It's easy to poke fun but I'm happy for the guy who turned his hobby into a business. Like many readers, I lost a bit of interest when it pivoted into an e-commerce site but he seems to have made enough hay while the sun was still shining. He stepped aside as CEO at the right time, just before secondary market prices tanked. Now he gets to saunter around with a single buttoned chambray shirt, hang around with Lenny Kravitz, the least known spiderman and collect vintage patek's and 911's.
Haha! He’s basically like “Easy come, easy go, but I have my twelve 911s, so let them eat cake or whatever…”

The addition of a 5-digit GMT has resulted in a glut of ss sport watches in my collection (a redundancy I thought I’d be fine with, but is now bothering me…). Soooo, shaking things up: two enter(ed), one leaves:

I told you so 3 months ago :p
If you buy a 5 digit GMT you'll quickly realize that it's better than your 6 digit GMT, leading to you selling your 6 digit GMT and having to worry about using your newfound liquidity to buy yet another watch. Not recommended.

What is your current complement of stainless sport watches? If I recall, you have others so perhaps these two don’t need to be the first victims of Thunderdome. But if this is it, I would keep the GP.
