Since 1839, Patek Philippe watches have been known within the watchmaking industry as being one of the masters of the complication. Patek Philippe watch complications offer wearers useful features, including monthly cycles, annual calendar, moon phases, and more, as well as providing highly accurate time telling.
The two founders, Antoni Patek and Adrien Philippe, crafted timepieces of outstanding beauty and integrity. When they sold the business in 1932, they passed their knowledge and craft to the Stern family in Switzerland, who have followed the legacy with innovative creations, like Aquanaut, Nautilus, Chronograph, Split-Seconds Hand and the Minute Repeater. Patek Philippe is now the last and oldest family-owned independent watchmaker in Geneva, with clients including Albert Einstein, Pablo Picasso, and the Royal Family.
Unlike many other watch brands, throughout the years Patek Philippe has maintained its focus on a smaller range of watches. This means that the company has been able to dedicate their watchmaking skills and precision into each and every piece rather than stretching their skills by expanding their range with various models
The Nautilus watch boasts a rounded octagonal-shaped bezel, along with a horizontally embossed dial and can even be purchased with a stunning rose gold bracelet.
The Aquanaut watch, which was brought to market in 1997, is heavily inspired by the Nautilus. However, the bezel used is much rounder than the Nautilus, so collectors wanting a more curvy and modern look will often opt for the Aquanaut.
The Perpetual Calendar watch is one of the more classic looks from Patek Philippe and is amongst the most historically significant and highly sought timepieces the brand has ever produced. The combination of precious materials, high-precision, and extremely intricate finishes makes the Perpetual Calendar a firm favourite.
With the beauty and integrity of each watch design, it’s clear to see why one of the most expensive Patek Philippe watches was priced at $31 million. However, more affordable Patek Philippe watches can start from around £21,000, so there’s always an opportunity to purchase an ideal timepiece regardless of budget. The beauty of purchasing a pre-owned Patek Philippe watch is that owners are able to make an investment in certain models that wouldn’t have been accessible to them at the prices charged for a brand-new timepiece.
Investing in a pre-owned Patek Philippe model can sometimes mean the difference between owning your dream timepiece and walking away empty-handed. As the Patek Philippe brand grows even stronger over time, their timepieces become much more sought after, especially when thinking of their more vintage or discontinued pieces. Collectors can sometimes find that the only way to own a magnificent piece of horological history, is to invest in a pre-owned piece.
The design and delicacy of their models mean that Patek Philippe watches can be worn by men or women.
Patek Philippe Ladies watches have become very popular over the past few years, with models such as the Aquanaut 5268 in white and rose gold becoming a strong example of a popular feminine style across the range. For men, the range of Patek Philippe watches boasts models such as the Nautilus and Aquanaut in a variety of different colourways and combinations, to ensure that every taste is catered to.
The brand focuses on classic colours and materials without any garish additions. However, when twists to colours and materials are added to their watches, they sell extremely well with wearers and collectors. For example, the use of sapphire, gold, and rose gold across the range, allows Patek Philippe to add a more modern and popular touch to already successful and popular watches, which become even more sought-after.
With so many customers eager to get their hands on discontinued and vintage pieces from Patek Philippe, it can sometimes be a challenge to add one to your collection. However, with our Watch Sourcing Service we’re able to hunt down your perfect timepiece and assist you with your search for a Patek Philippe. We also have an extensive range of watches at our Mayfair store in London, which you can browse for yourself.
