Pre-Owned and Used Patek Philippe Watches
History of One of the Finest Timepieces: Patek Philippe Watches
Considered to be an ultra-luxury Swiss watch manufacturer, Patek Philippe was co-founded in 1851 by Polish watchmaker Antoine Norbert de Patek and French watchmaker Adrien Philippe, inventor of the keyless winding mechanism.
While expanding its business via commissions, Patek Philippe also came to the attention of the aristocracy, who then went on to become owners of Patek watches themselves. Some of these past owners were royalty like Queen Victoria and her consort Prince Albert, the king and queen of Denmark Christian IX and Princess Louise, the king of Italy Victor Emmanuel III, and the Sultan of Egypt Hussein Kamel.
Since then, Patek Philippe watches have continued their illustrious reputation as they’ve been sought after and worn by modern aristocrats like Mark Wahlberg, Drake, Brad Pitt, and Lebron James.
What Makes Patek Philippe Watches so Appealing?
Patek Philippe is known for having created some of the most detailed and precise manual watches ever made. Patek watches are noted for having their own in-house manufactured watch components. Since 1845, Patek Philippe has received over 80 patents for its inventions across movements and timepiece design. Remaining, even today, a family-owned independent luxury watch manufacturer, Patek Philippe continues to follow the classic visions of its founders and produces among the finest timepieces in the world, with a spirit of endless innovation and exploration.
