HODINKEE boasts a celebrated name within the world of horology, but it’s not every day that its fans are treated to a limited-edition release. That’s doubly true when it comes to exclusive, time-inspired wonders. Surprisingly, the brand has just revealed an Eight-Day Travel Clock — built in unison with the valued watchmaker, Pontifa — for its most curious collectors.

The HODINKEE Eight-Day Travel Clock is a wondrous little device that’s been inspired by the specialized, mechanically-wound variants used by globetrotters in the 1920s and 1930s. Inside of the example’s hand-upholstered, premium grey goat leather housing, collectors will find a PVD-coated steel housing, as well as a vintage movement from Pontifa. Each manually-wound mechanical clock will boast an eight-day power reserve, alarm functionality, and a small, compact footprint, making it viable for storage in a jacket, pant pocket, attache, or messenger bag. But what makes the Eight-Day truly special is its vintage typeface, Decimal, which has been exclusively designed by watch collector and collaborator, Jonathan Hoefler, for HODINKEE. Head to the brand’s web site for a deeper dive into the intricacies of the limited-to-96 Travel Clock, which is available now for $5,900.
