About John Reardon, Founder

John Reardon first became interested in horology while learning the art of clockmaking as a teenager at the American Watch and Clock Museum in his hometown of Bristol, Connecticut. His auction career began at Sotheby’s in New York in 1997, where he was part of the team that sold the Patek Philippe Henry Graves’ Supercomplication for 12M USD, a record at the time. He joined the Henri Stern Watch Agency (Patek Philippe USA) in 2001, and served for a decade in sales and marketing roles. Returning to the auction world in 2011, he spent five years leading Christie’s Watches as International Head of Watches, managing a global team of 30 individuals at the world’s largest auction house. 

John left his role at Christie’s during the summer of 2019 to launch Collectability. Dedicated to buying, selling and collecting Patek Philippe timepieces, Collectability aims to educate collectors on the history of Patek Philippe, its timepiece production, and place in the international field of horology. John married his love of horology with his love for the artistry and innovation of Patek Philippe when he created Collectability. His depth of experience, expertise and passion for the brand make Collectability a special place for all things Patek Philippe.

John is a regular contributor to Forbes magazine, as well as a contributing writer on the Patek Philippe magazine where his Collector’s Guide can be seen in each issue. His first book, Patek Philippe in America: Marketing the World’s Foremost Watch, was published in 2008 and was followed by the Patek Philippe Reference Guide: Men’s Wristwatches (2010) and the Patek Philippe Reference Guide: Ladies’ Watches (2012). John is member of Academy of the Grand Prix D’Horlogerie de Genève, a Trustee of the Horological Society of New York, and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmaker’s.

About Tania Edwards, Co-Founder

Tania Edwards has over 30 years’ experience in the watch industry, mostly with Patek Philippe. Her career started on the PR agency side, promoting the 150th anniversary of Patek Philippe which led to the role of Marketing Director at the Henri Stern Agency (Patek Philippe USA), a position she held for 10 years, eventually becoming Vice President. Her pivotal role in developing the global campaign, ‘You never actually own a Patek, you merely look after it for the next generation,’ and the award-winning Patek Philippe Magazine — both of which are still running after 27 years — is a testament to Tania’s deep understanding of how to appeal to the most discriminating customers. More recently, Tania managed the marketing for Christie’s Luxury division: Watches, Jewelery, Wine and Handbags, and was US Head of Marketing for the British watch company Bremont. 

Tania shares John’s deep-seated love for the brand, especially retracing the journey behind each vintage Patek Philippe watch that comes across her desk. Tania is thrilled to have co-founded Collectability and to continue her Patek Philippe journey with her friend and colleague John Reardon.

In March 2024, Tania was admitted as a Freeman to the Worshipful Company of Clockmaker’s and is deeply honored to be a member of this ancient guild which supports and promotes the horological industries and crafts.
