The Watch That Started It All
The first watch we ever worked on – and in many ways the start of Collective – was a secret project: A custom Tudor Black Bay for the Facebook employee watch club.
HODINKEE's Talking Watches, hosted by John Mayer.
Although only 70 examples were produced for Facebook employees, somehow one ended up in John Mayer's personal collection. He shared the watch during an episode of HODINKEE's Talking Watches with Ed Sheeran, and now the secret of this very special watch is out.
Online Retail for Watch Enthusiasts
Our goal is simple: Meet the high expectations of watch enthusiasts for online retail.
We've bought way too many watches ourselves, and know the experience is often far from ideal. For that reason, we make it easy to buy online, ensure our inventory is always accurate, ship promptly, offer detailed order tracking, and provide responsive customer service by phone, text or email.
Collective's founders – Asher Rapkin and Gabe Reilly.
Authorized Retailer for the Fiercely Independent
Collective retails a number of independent brands – watchmakers who we believe in, offer a unique perspective, and don’t have a large footprint in the US.
We currently carry the following brands: Arcanaut, Czapek, Fears, Formex, J.N. Shapiro, James Lamb, Nicholas Hacko Watchmaker, Speake-Marin and Zeitwinkel.
Collective is an authorized retailer of all new watches we carry.
