For over 100 years, Patek Philippe has symbolized quality, innovation, and exclusivity in the fine watch making community.
Patek Philippe watches have continuously delivered innovative complications, and are known not only as fine watches, but as investments offering a stability of value that is rare in the marketplace. Perhaps the most famous example of the two is the Henry Graves Supercomplication. Commissioned in 1925 by banker Henry Graves, the double sided pocket watch features an astounding 24 complications, the most by any watchmaker without the aid of computer technology. It sold at auction in 2014 for $24 million, breaking its own record of $11 million in 1999.

About Patek Philippe
Widely known as one of the most prestigious ultra-luxury watch manufacturers, Patek Philippe has built a brand based on quality, innovation, and exclusivity. The company holds more than 80 patents, and their timepieces regularly command top prices at auction and through specialty dealers throughout the world.
The collaboration between Antoni Patek and Jean-Adrien Philippe began when the two met at the Paris World’s Fair in 1844. Polish watchmaker Patek had been making pocket watches since 1839 in Geneva, and Philippe had already invented a keyless, crown winding system. The two joined forces as Patek & Co. in 1845 and applied to patent a watch with a winding stem and hand adjustment mechanism. In 1851, the company became Patek Philippe & Co.
Innovation continued for the company, as did international exposure. Patek’s travels in North America, Europe, and South America helped establish the brand internationally. Exclusive agreements with New York’s Tiffany and Co. and Gondolo & Labouriau in Rio de Janeiro proved lucrative, and innovations included the first wristwatch with a perpetual calendar and the first wrist chronographs.
