The very best in craftsmanship, Patek Philippe carries over 175 years of heritage and design in watchmaking. Founded in 1851, the Swiss watch manufacturer enforces the highest standards of quality for every aspect of their products, and has created some of the finest mechanical timepieces in the world.
Patek Philippe has been perpetuating the watchmaking traditions for generations. As the last family-owned independent Genevan watch manufacturer, the company enjoys total creative freedom to design, produce and assemble what experts agree to be the finest timepiece in the world.
The company keeps record of sale for every watch made since 1839. The design, artistry and craftsmanship of every watch is what made the British Royal Family, countless heads-of-state and celebrities fall in love with the brand and make it a desirable collectible.
Patek Philippe produced some of the most sophisticated watches in the history and was the first one to popularise chronograph and minute repeater.
Since its inception, fewer than 1 million Patek Philippe watches have ever been made. The production of watches is so detailed, it can take up to nine months to carefully make the most basic watches, and more than two years to create some of the most complicated timepieces. The scarcity and hand-finishing of every individual part is what truly distinguishes Patek amongst other high-end Swiss watchmakers.
The real beauty of a Patek’s design lives in its movements. The hand-polishing of every element and transcendent dial design may seem to be appreciated only by the professional watchmakers, but Patek Philippe can often go unnoticed even by the person wearing the watch, and yet it all adds up to something that looks and feels perfect on the wrist.
Patek Philippe’s understated elegance bespeaks confidence has been passed from generation to generation, just like the watches can be themselves. Owning Patek Philippe is more than investing in a high-end watch; it means passing on an extraordinary piece of your life to the next generation.
