This past weekend, team HODINKEE spent two days at the Goodwood Revival, the largest assembling of fine vintage automobiles on planet earth. The Revival is unlike any other event in the world in that A) unlike Pebble Beach, the Geneva, and NY auto shows, there is little influence from modern car makers, and as such, there isn't so much gloss. And B) attendees and participants are very much encouraged to dress the part - meaning period clothing and accessories. To us, what does that mean? You guessed it, some absolutely epic watch spotting.
Here you will see some of our favorite outfits and watches of Goodwood 2012. We'll be back later this week with a very special celebrity watch-spot from Goodwood, and of course, a look at the cars from this fantastic celebration of 20th century kitsch.
