Breaking Into the Boys’ Club of Watches

Post by koimaster » January 12th 2017, 5:28pm

Even if the future is female, as a recently popular T-shirt proclaims, the world of fine watches can sometimes feel as insular and male-dominated as a 1950s boardroom. Consider Hodinkee, a go-to website for watch geeks, where the readership is 93 percent male. What is it with guys and watches? We went to Cara Barrett, 30, who is the only female writer at Hodinkee and lives in New York, to get her take.


Q. How did you develop a love of watches?

A. I started off as a cataloger in the Sotheby’s watch department. I cataloged over 600 watches a year, and through that just picked up an eye for watches, and it fueled a love for them. I started at Hodinkee about a year and a half ago.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
