About Patek Philippe

Before the official founding of Patek Philippe in 1951, watchmaker Antoni Patek began designing and manufacturing beautiful pocket watches; a style of watch quite popular at the time. Upon meeting French watchmaker Adrien Philippe in 1845, the duo began working on their signature luxury watches that Patek Philippe lovers have come to know. The company began producing innovating products early on, beginning with the invention and use of the keyless winding mechanism. Before the keyless winding mechanism, the wearer would have to use a special key to manually wind the watch. The keyless winding system allowed wearers to wind the watch with a simple crown (rotating lever) on the side of the watch. Although invented over 160 years ago, this technology is still used in finely crafted, luxury watches today.
 
Since its founding Patek Philippe has been family owned with complete control over the production of their watches, overseeing all aspects of design and production in their Geneva headquarters. They are well known for manufacturing their own watch parts; something that many other companies outsource. Their independence has allowed them to innovate like no other watchmaker in history, filing over 80 patents, and creating over 200 unique designs.
 
Popular models include the flagship Calatrava, Golden Ellipse, Gondolo, Aquanot, and Nautilus. The company is especially well known for producing extremely complex, custom watches, including producing a 24 function gold pocket watch in 1933 that auctioned for an astounding 11 million dollars to a collector at Sotheby’s auction house in 1999.

Quality and Lasting Value

Each Patek Philippe model is produced in small batches, giving each design a uniqueness that other brands cannot rival. This uniqueness, coupled with their precision and quality, has allowed Patek Philippe watches to not only retain their value, but more commonly, to increase in value over time. In November of 2013, a 1957 Patek Philippe fetched $2.2 million at auction, with another model selling for $1.6 million.

Examples of Patek Philippe Models That Worthy Accepts:
 
Caltavara: The Caltavara, Patek Philippe’s signature watch, has been manufactured since 1932.  The Caltavara has an unmistakable timeless style that maintains its value and prestige, regardless of the current trend.

Golden Ellipse: The Golden Ellipse was created in 1968, and has an equally recognizable appearance. The Golden Ellipse was designed based on the golden ratio – the same ratio used to build the Egyptian pyramids, and used throughout history to design and define beauty.

Gondolo: The Gondolo is based on the contemporary Art Deco style.  A break from the traditional classical style of Patek Philippe watches, the Gondolo is based on a previously manufactured custom watch, the Chronometro Gondolo.
