The huge nine. Amazing. It’s insane to believe that we began this show barely two years prior and that we’re nearly to that huge three-digit achievement. There’s something extraordinary arranged – don’t stress – yet that doesn’t mean we’re not going to bring the warmth this week as well. To commence Episode 99, we have a review for you of something we’ll be dropping on HODINKEE.com not long from now: A discussion between our own Danny Milton and Rory McIlroy. Notwithstanding being perhaps the best golf player alive, Rory is a long-lasting watch darling, and the two people get into everything based on what it resembles to play without fans during COVID, the watches he generally makes a point to pack for a major competition, and significantly more. I would prefer not to destroy excessively, however this portion from the discussion ought to make them revive your program the entire week as you sit tight for the full video meeting to drop.
The offer of the Henry Graves Supercomplication addressed a genuine achievement in Reardon’s vocation – and the watch world at large.
For our headliner, however, we have my discussion with John Reardon, a long-term veteran of the closeout world, one of the main specialists on everything Patek Philippe, and the organizer of Collectability.com , an online stage for finding out about and buying vintage Patek Philippe watches. John was my passage into the watch world back in 2012, so in an entertaining manner, both this digital broadcast and my vocation everywhere are the two his shortcoming. We get into John’s soonest horological encounters upgrading times at the American Watch & Clock Museum in Connecticut and his beginning in the sale world at Sotheby’s in the last part of the 1990s, just as a portion of the achievements of his profession, including the deals of the acclaimed Henry Graves Jr. Supercomplication and the Breguet Sympathique . John’s likewise got a lot of bits of knowledge into the advanced closeout world and bunches of tips for authorities, all things considered, and interests. Our discussion is two old companions and associates making up for lost time and discussing fun occasions. I can’t really accept that it took us such a long time to welcome him on the show.
We trust you appreciate Episode 99 of HODINKEE Radio. Look at the show notes underneath, and let us understand your opinion in the comments.
To get the full backstory on John’s relationship with the Ellipse, one of Patek Philippe’s most polarizing watches, you’ll need to tune in to the full scene, yet this is simply the Ellipse that he shakes. It’s a reference 3604 in the exemplary yellow gold/blue dial combo and those particular carries with the additional segment in the middle. John consistently needed a birth-year Patek, and he adores how this watch embodies the plan patterns of the time without wandering into the now-omnipresent Nautilus/Royal Oak region. This is an affection it-or-disdain it sort of watch, yet I don’t think you’ll need to make a decent attempt to think about where John lands.
