Patek Philippe, founded in 1839 in the Swiss city of Geneva, prides itself as one of the last independently owned watch manufacturers. This allows the company total creative freedom to entirely design, produce and assemble what experts agree to be one of the finest timepieces in the world. Thanks to exceptional know-how, Patek Philippe maintains a tradition of innovation hailed by an impressive repertoire of more than 80 patents and an incredible lineup of antique, vintage, and modern time pieces. Historically, Patek Philippe timepieces are known for their high collectability and record auction prices.
