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.
Since Louis Cottierâ€°Ûªs invention of this mechanism during the 1930s, the famous Patek Philippe World Time watches have often been adorned with maps in Grand Feu cloisonnÌ© enamel depicting various regions of the world. In 2022, Patek Philippe pays tribute to the dynamism of South-East Asia and to Oceania by interpreting this model in a new white gold version with a Grand Feu cloisonnÌ© enamel dial. To combine geography and poetry, the artisan first marks off the outlines of the continents with a thin gold wire. He then fills the compartments with various enamel colors reproducing the oceans and land masses, while repeatedly firing the enameled dial plate at high temperature in a kiln.
