Dubbed ‘The Watch Hunter of Africa’ Roni Madhvani is a collector that sets the bar high for all others. Through his social media channels, Roni is inspiring a new generation of collectors to buy what they love rather than what they are told to buy. In this Collectability Podcast, Roni speaks with Carlos Torres and explains how he started collecting and how his passion for watches, especially Patek Philippe, has developed over the past 30 years.

Over the past ten years, it would be hard to identify another person who has had as much influence over the the digital and social media evolution of the watch industry as Ben Clymer. In this Collectability Podcast, Ben speaks openly with John Reardon about how he created Hodinkee from his desire to learn as much as possible about watches, to his opinions on Patek Philippe and its position in the industry today.

Dr Helmut Crott is one of the few people in the world who can look through the Patek Philippe Museum catalog and point to the pieces he once owned or sold. For over fifty years, he has been a leading figure in the watch world. In the 1970s, he launched one of the first auction houses specializing in timepieces. By the 1990s, he had compiled one of the most important data bases on Patek Philippe, and remains today the expert that auction houses and dealers contact for help and advice. He has also written the definitive book on dials, and owned the historic watchmaker Urban Jürgensen. In this episode, Carlos Torres speaks with Dr Crott about his extraordinary life and important contribution to the watch industry. 

In this inaugural episode of the Collectability Podcast, Collectability founder John Reardon talks with Carlos Torres about his passion for Patek Philippe and how to collect vintage timepieces.
