Patek Philippe – Iconic luxury watches
A genuine luxury watch certainly has more to offer than timeless aesthetics, masterly craftsmanship and exquisite materials. It is unique in horology when it gives its wearer a feeling of exclusivity and prestige. This emotion of uniqueness is the declared goal of the famous Geneva Manufactory Patek Philippe. Here, a culture of savoir-faire is honoured with each individual watch, and a great heritage is continued and developed.
A great history until today
In 1839 Antoine Norbert de Patek and François Czapek founded the company Patek, Czapek & Cie. By the time the first Swiss wristwatch ever was manufactured there, the company had already made a name for itself with innovative and stylish pocket watches. The first of its kind is a unique piece made especially for the Hungarian Countess Koscowicz. The company's history is filled with numerous milestones, including the invention of the perpetual calendar for pocket watches and the first wristwatch with this complication. In the 20th century, Patek Philippe products became the benchmark for precision, making him one of the industry's pace setters. The launch of the first Calatrava, one of the brand's most popular collections to this day, heralded the dawn of modern times before the series production of watches with perpetual calendars even began in 1941. Development from masterpiece to masterpiece, from calibre to calibre, from second to second - history, evolution and unconditional passion for the modern wristwatch make today's Patek Philippe collections the epitome of style:
- Grandes Complications
- Twenty 4
- Golden Ellipse
Time display as an art form: The clock world of Patek Philippe
The great art of the manufactory includes the production of large complications as well as the presence of classical segments. Patek Philippe also holds a special position in terms of diversity - made possible by his great experience and sense of style in perfection – as proven by the numerous collections, lines and masterpieces.
The workshop Patek Philippe masters all the major complications of sophisticated watchmaking. The Grandes Complications collection proves this impressively. It is no coincidence that the watchmakers have been able to build the world's most complicated portable watch twice in this century. The experience gained from this and from centuries of craftsmanship find their tasteful echoes and emphasizes the top class mechanics of each watch.
Even the small functions of a mechanical watch can shine perfectly elaborated in wonderful light. This is underlined by the Patek Philippe Complications collection with skilful effortlessness and absolute evidence.
The elegant sports watch in the Nautilus line longs for embodiment in its own way. The rounded octagonal shape achieves maximum recognition value. The housing is reminiscent of a porthole and thus reveals its sporty-maritime affinity. Since 1976 a model that attracts success with every new launch finds its way to the wrists of sporty, elegant ladies and gentlemen in numerous variants.
If every Patek Philippe watch did not already possess an intrinsic elegance that makes her a dresswatch, the Calatrava could be described as a representative of this genre in the watchmaker’s portfolio. She belongs to the epitome of the manufactory's success, is a milestone as well as a guarantor and radiates unsurpassed elegance.
Since the Patek Philippe Aquanaut was launched in 1997, it has conquered the hearts of active people who value a robust watch with a high water-resistance. The Aquanaut surprises with its fresh design that is less classic and more reminiscent of the sporty look of the Nautilus.
This is particularly evident in the shape of the case, which gives a hint of this kinship. The "Tropical" bracelet made of innovative composite material is the unique trademark of the line. Aquanaut is the watch of choice for people who want understatement, sportiness and yet a certain "je ne sais quoi" that perhaps only the Patek Philippe studio knows how to combine in this way.
