Kevin Rose, founder of Digg, former Google Ventures investor and incubator addict with Milk and North Technologies, is going to head up a watch site.

One of North’s projects, alongside the now shuttered Tiiny, was Watchville, an app exclusively focused on wristwatches. That effort is now merging with New York-based startup Hodinkee.

Rose will be the chief executive of Hodinkee, while its founder Benjamin Clymer will remain as editorial director. Watchville and Hodinkee will operate as stand-alone entities under the same umbrella.

The New York Times’ Bits blog, linked below, has a longer interview with Rose about the move.
