PATEK PHILIPPE WATCHES

Wearing a Patek Philippe watch connotes a level of sophistication that no other watch conveys. For serious watch collectors, Patek Philippe Watches epitomizes the art of horology with its precision complications and unbeatable quality. Polish watchmaker Antoni Patek, who honed his craft in Geneva, joined forces with French watchmaker Adrian Philippe, the inventor of the keyless winding mechanism, in 1851, to create a new watch company, Patek Philippe Watches. Originally designing mostly pocket watches, they introduced their first wrist watch in 1868 to much acclaim. Patek Philippe Watches have also been early pioneers of the perpetual calendar, chronograph, split seconds hand, and minute repeater features in watches.

Like other Swiss watch companies, Patek Philippe Watches produces mostly automatic or manual winding movements and they work hard at perfecting their craft. They were the ones to design the watch known as “The Supercomplication” an amazing watch with 24 functions sold to Henry Graves Jr. in 1933. After he died the watch was put on auction at Sotheby’s and sold for $11,000,000, an unprecedented amount for a watch at the time.

Patek Philippe Watches have graced the wrists of royalty since 1851 when they were approached by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert to design watches for the royal family of England. This immediately drew the attention of the other royal courts of Europe such as King Christian IX and Queen Louise of Denmark, King Victor-Emanuel III of Italy, and Hussein Kamel the Sultan of Egypt who all sported Patek Philippe watches.

In 1989, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of Patek Philippe Watches, the company created the Calibre 169, the most complicated mechanical movement ever made. It is comprised of 39 complications including time of sunrise, equation of time, and can add a day to February in a leap year while dropping the extra day every 100 years.
