WatchBox Names Jack Forster Global Editorial Director
He was previously editor-in-chief at Hodinkee.
The Philadelphia-headquartered company has appointed Jack Forster its global editorial director.
The company said Forster’s role will be to “broaden” its editorial content, as well as advise on video content and events.
Forster has spent the last decade-and-a-half as an editor covering timepieces.
Previously, Forster was editor-in-chief at Hodinkee, a role he held for five years. Prior to that, he was the publication’s managing editor.
Before joining Hodinkee, he spent five years as editor-in-chief of quarterly magazine Revolution USA. He started at the publication as the technical and features editor.
As a watch journalist, he has contributed to various outlets, including the book “Cartier Time Art: Mechanics of Passion.”
“Content and context are everything when it comes to the emotional connections we form with watches,” said WatchBox Executive Chairman Danny Govberg.
“Throughout his career, Jack has drawn generations of collectors deeper into conversations of collectability and a brand’s story. He was part of Revolution during the renaissance of print journalism, at Hodinkee throughout the dawn of digital publishing, and we’re honored for him to join us for this next chapter, as we take video and digital content to the next level.”
WatchBox noted it is particularly focused on video content across its media channels.
Forster will be working with Tim Mosso, who heads WatchBox’s video content as the company’s media director.
Forster commented, “WatchBox is a fast-growing and dynamic industry leader not only in the pre-owned watch space, but also in creating cutting-edge video content designed to inform, educate, and entertain serious watch enthusiasts.
“It's an honor to join the team, and I look forward to participating in continuing growth on the strong foundation already in place."
