Aldis Hodge, Watch Lover, Watch Collector, and a Watchmaker
However, the casual fans don't know about Aldis is his love for watches. The 'hidden figures' expressed his passion for watches, talked about his watch brand 'Basil Time Piece,' and even delved into his personal history.
The New York native was raised by his single mother, who also inspired her to become an actor. His first watch(which was a Mickey Mouse watch) was also a gift from his mother and brother. Hodge talked about his family fondly, saying,
“She(their mother) raised my brother and me, putting us in the business of acting at a very young age, so I have been an actor and entertainer for 27 years. When I was 18, I began attending college for art and design, and I designed all sorts of things from furniture to industrial designs and even watches. My mom told us that we should have good shoes, a good suit and a watch, so I was running around at age 10 looking like a little old man, But somehow I grew to understand that a watch is a representation of myself, of my culture, taste, awareness and aesthetic.”

While he holds a vast collection of watches of all sorts, sizes, and brands, he holds an equally impressive history in watchmaking. The actress was previously an apprentice of a teacher from Vacheron Constantin and has worked on building watches for multiple brands for years and even has thought of original plans, which were much more advanced at the time of inception. He talked about his dreams of introducing a brand to a Swiss company saying,
"When I was 22, I was working on a line and I brought the concepts to Switzerland to a brand that was looking. I presented three watches, one was a retrograde, one was a perpetual calendar, and the third was a tourbillon. They liked them but said they couldn’t make them because that brand at that time didn’t make its own movements so that the concept wouldn’t work; it was too advanced for them. So I decided I would do it myself. I didn’t want to quit acting, though, because I also love that, and because acting gives me the ability to be able to create and design things in my free time."
Hodge personally plans to build his company, Basil Time Piece, as a boutique brand that will focus on Haute horology. The watch enthusiast was quoted explaining his plans stating,
"We are going into production now of our first flagship model, but we will only be making small limited collections and special bespoke pieces,”
