About

Our goal is to give collectors the knowledge they need to make informed decisions on buying and selling vintage and pre-owned Patek Philippe watches. Driven by passion and scholarship, Collectability strives to make the process transparent and enjoyable.

About John Reardon

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. He left his role at Christie’s during the summer of 2019 to launch Collectability LLC and currently remains close to the house as Christie’s Senior International Consultant for Watches.

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).

About Tania Edwards

Tania Edwards has 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 and promoting the global campaign, ‘You never actually own a Patek, you merely look after it for the next generation,’ which is still running after 23 years, is testament to Tania’s deep understanding of how to appeal to the most discriminating customers. She remains a special projects consultant and content editor for Patek Philippe, Geneva, and still edits the award-winning Patek Philippe magazine, a position she has held for 23 years. More recently, Tania managed the marketing for Christie’s Luxury division: Watches, Jewels, Wine and Handbags, and then went on to the role of US Head of Marketing for the luxury British watch company Bremont. As Philippe Stern once commented to Tania, “Patek Philippe is in your soul”, and she is thrilled to join Collectability and to continue her Patek journey with her friend and colleague John Reardon.
