Patek Philippe in America: Marketing the World’s Foremost Watch by John Reardon
Patek Philippe in America explores the history of Patek Philippe and its relationship with the American market through an extensive collection of company advertisements and documents. The richly illustrated oversized coffee table book highlights many of the most important watches, technical innovations, and U.S. retailers of the 19th and 20th century. When it was first released in 2008, two years before the dawn of Instagram, I was obsessed with collecting vintage Patek Philippe advertisements and wanted to share the story of Patek Philippe in the United States with this primary source material from my personal collection and through interviews with the men and women who worked for Henri Stern Watch Agency. The result is a 400-page tome that shares the secrets of Patek Philippe in a new and unique way.
With 1,500 copies in print, the book is sold out, but I have a few remaining copies that I am offering through Collectability and will personalize and sign at your request.
