Patek Philippe is a luxury Swiss watch brand and is also the last family-owned Geneva watch manufacturer. This fact largely determines the reputation of the company, which managed to maintain independence while most watch brands became part of concerns. The manufactory produces almost all parts for its movements, ensuring a high level of reliability for every watch.
The Patek Philippe brand was not originally intended. Polish émigré watchmaker Anthony Patek simply opened his workshop in Geneva in 1839 and took up the production of pocket watches. However, by 1851, he decided to join forces with his French colleague Jean-Adrian Philippe, which gave the brand its current name and set the direction of development. Jean-Adrian Philippe was a talented heir to the dynasty of watchmakers, his contribution to the development of the brand is very great. So in 1844 he presented a new invention - a winding crown, without which it is difficult to imagine a wristwatch in principle. The World Exhibition in London presented the companions with the first "star" buyer - the English Queen Victoria, who bought two pairs of watches at once. The further development of the brand's popularity was quite rapid - the royal families of Italy and Denmark joined the clients of the company, and closer to the XNUMXth century, the jewelry house Tiffany & Co. left a large order.
Patek Philippe did not stand still, so the brand owns the patents for the first double chronograph and perpetual calendar in wristwatches. Since 1932, the company has been owned by the Stern family. Notable owners of Patek Philippe watches include Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr of The Beatles, the XIV Dalai Lama and actor Brad Pitt. Special attention is paid to the famous collection of watches with complications by James Ward Packard - the owner of the automobile company Packard - among which there were 10 Patek Philippe watches. In order to surpass him in collecting, banker Henry Graves Jr. ordered the Henry Graves Supercomplication watch - the most complex watch created without the use of a computer.
Most people want to buy a Patek Philippe watch for aesthetic reasons or to complement their collection of Swiss movements, but there are also those who consider the purchase primarily as a financial investment. The fact is that watches lose little of their price over the years, and sometimes they even become more expensive and in demand, which allows them to make a profit in the future. In addition, a Patek Philippe watch on the wrist perfectly complements the image of a successful person and is a good investment in your own style.
More than 200 predominantly classic models of stainless steel, gold or platinum allow you to choose the option of an accessory that will suit each individual person. From simple watches to sophisticated chronographs or true mechanical masterpieces from the Grandes Complications collection, the brand has made sure that its creations are appropriate for social events and extreme conditions. The variety of shapes in the different collections makes it easy to design for a wide variety of aesthetic preferences, from the classic round porthole dials to the elliptical case of the Ellipse d'Or line or the rectangular Twenty-4.
