Established in 1839 in Switzerland, Patek Philippe is named after its founders, Antoni Patek and Adrien Philippe. To this day, Patek Philippe has always aimed for perfection by creating pieces of unrivaled quality and reliability. The exclusiveness of their watches make them rare, precious pieces, a unique legacy to be handed down from one generation to the next.
