Patek Philippe Watches
The History Of Patek Philippe
Created in 1851, Patek Philippe watches are synonymous throughout the world with quality, craftsmanship, and luxury. Polish watchmaker Antoni Patek started creating watches in 1839 in Switzerland and soon joined forces with French watchmaker and innovator Adrien Philippe. Both men originally set out separately in search of beginning their own watch legacies, but after finding each other their combined vigor for new ideas and world recognition soon made them one of the best brands.
They slowly gained momentum, selling to famous clients, and branching out around the world, but made their mark in 1868 after making the first Swiss wristwatch for the Countess of Hungary.
Famous for manufacturing its own watch components, Patek Philippe watches have reached record prices when sold at auction with only a limited number of watches manufactured per year. Members of the British and Danish royal families, such as Prince Albert and Princess Louise, are known to have sported the brand, and know they have been worn by countless celebrities and modern day icons.
Patek Philippe creates sophisticated and graceful watches that are designed to last. Some of their most iconic styles are known for their impeccable movements and craftsmanship, allowing the materials and components to speak to its luxury, while keeping a sleek and subdued style.
The brand was built on the idea of pushing boundaries in watchmaking, as they made the first Swiss wristwatch and changed the way in which watches were made and crafted. Today, Patek Philippe continues to strive for excellence in innovation by investing in game-changing new materials and technologies, still offering something new and unique even over 100 years after its founding. Because of its timeless reputation and cemented place in the designer watch world, it will always be a sound investment to acquire a Patek Philippe.
