Why does it seem like most watch journalists / bloggers / video bloggers, etc are so young -- like mid-20s to early 30s? For every Jack Forster, it seems like there are 10 Stephen Pulvirents. Don't get me wrong, some of them put out perfectly fine content and many are impressively knowledgeable, but how did these 27 year olds become taste makers, especially those writing about haute horology?
Like Ben Clymer, for example, who is this guy? Does he come from old money or something, such that he had sufficient life experience to start writing about such high end watches, antique cars, and other old-rich-people paraphernalia when he was 1/2 the age of his average reader?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be ageist or elitist, I'm just trying to understand where these watch reviewers are coming from.
