John Reardon discusses five reasons that differentiate Patek from other watches
Why do people choose to collect Patek Philippe?
In the video above, Collectability’s John Reardon shares his top five reasons to educate and inspire the start of your collecting journey.
The details on a Patek Philippe movement – the way the ridges are shaped, the hand finish, the beautiful mechanism in its entirety – are unrivalled by any other watch in current or historical production.
Design and Aesthetic
You can recognize a Patek Philippe when you walk into a room and see these iconic designs, whether it’s a Calatrava, Ellipse, Nautilus, or a perpetual chronograph.
Value and Investment
Discussing the value of watches is a sensitive topic, but the fact remains: the price of many Patek Philippe watches have only gone up. Still, at Collectability, we urge our viewers to buy from the heart.
Scarcity and Rarity
Other watchmakers often produce over 1 million pieces per year. In the history of Patek Philippe’s production, only 1 million have been made. This means Patek Philippe pieces are inherently more rare and are something to be passed on to the next generation.
Patek Philippe issues archive information containing the original date of production, date of sale, and engraving information for every movement ever made. This level of record keeping gives buyers of Patek Philippe watches an unmatched insight into every piece.
