Patek Philippe – History

The iconic luxury watchmaking Brand Patek Philippe starts out in 18521, when two prestigious and adventurous watchmakers (Antoine Norbert de Patek and Jean Adrien Philippe) decide to found the company Patek, Philippe & Ce- Fabricants à Genève, Switzerland. This will be the beginning of a successful history with amazing designs and a great evolution, through a brand whose acknowledgement and quality are still evident. From the mid-19th century and for decades, the company has supplied great timepieces for royalty and aristocrats, among others. In the early 20th century they started getting patents for different inventions, and in 1923 the first split-second chronograph wristwatch is launched. Soon after, in 1925 they will also produce their first wristwatch with perpetual calendar. The hard economic situation created by the Great Depression make the company search outside investment, so in 1932 the Genevan brothers Jean and Charles Henri Stern enter the company. In 1958 Henri becomes president of Patek Philippe; today, the firm is still owned by the Stern family. In 1993, his son Philippe will become president and still remains.
