Founded in 1839, Patek Philippe & Co is the last independent, family-owned Genevan watch manufacture and now the world’s most prestigious watch brand. The logo is the Calatrava Cross which was registered in 1887. With a vibrant, uninterrupted operating history spanning nearly 180 years, the company benefits from a unique legacy of tradition and innovation.
Since the mid-19th century, numerous regents, elder statesmen, clerical dignitaries, industrial magnates, and proponents of the arts and culture have acknowledged the standing by choosing Patek Philippe timepieces for themselves or as surprise gestures of largesse to delight others.
In celebration of its 150th anniversary, Patek Philippe crafts the Calibre 89 that would remain the world’s most complicated watch for more than 25 years (33 complications). For the 175th anniversary Patek Philippe presents the Grandmasted Chime, the most complicated wristwatch in production (20 complications).
From Antoine Norbert de Patek’s encounter with Jean Adrien Philippe to the present day, from the first pocket watches to the very latest super complications — forged the history of Patek Philippe and the entire watchmaking industry.
