2 | A chat with some men who seriously know watches

Esquire's watch columnist Robin Swithinbank joined an esteemed panel of horologists - Danny Pizzigoni, Andrew Hildreth, Philip van Dedem and Alex Stonely - as they shared their thoughts on how audience members could begin to build an impressive collection of their own.

"You should get the right advice and try to hit the ground running. John Mayer told us his first twelve watches were a mistake. Which is fine for a multi-millionaire, not for the rest of us," pointed out Pizzigoni.

Stonely felt that "the modern pre-owned market is the lowest risk investment to start your collection," while on the subject of buying a watch that will retain its value, Hildreth said "if you want safety, go with Patek."

The one thing the whole panel agreed with? Keep up to date with watch sections like Esquire's. Thanks, guys.
