Everything you need to know about Patek Philippe.
The brand brought out its first designs back in 1839. Since it set out in business all those years ago, the label has amassed over seventy patents included the famous Gyromax balance wheel and the annual calendar. The brand Patek Philippe was actually born out of the partnership between Antoine Norbert de Patek and the watchmaker François Czapek. Six years later, the two men brought their collaboration to an end and Jean-Adrien Philippe took over at the helm of the brand based in Geneva. In 1867, the label created the world's first ever wristwatch. Sixty years later, Patek Philippe was behind the invention of the first annual calendar watch. If the brand's reputation has grown to a point where it is familiar to the general public and industry professionals alike, it is thanks to a strong spirit of innovation. Proof of this was provided in 1989 (the year of the label's 50th anniversary) if proof were needed, with the creation of the second-most complicated pocket watch the world has ever seen.
Genuine watchmaking gems.
Watches invented by Patek Philippe are perfect illustrations of precision and command of technological innovations. The considerable success the brand has achieved is down to the popularity of certain models. One of those is the Nautilus range developed in 1976. The design echoes a luxury sports watch with its octagonal bezel, waterproof properties and strap integrated into the case. Twenty years later, the Aquanaut design was launched with a view to winning over a whole new generation seeking originality. As for watches with curved forms, the Calatrava has unquestionably cornered the market. The origins of this timeless design go back to the 1930s. The Ellipse d'Or watch was inspired by the Golden Ratio, endowing it with ideal proportions and an endearingly slim design.
