Everywhere around the world Patek Philippe watches are known for their impeccable quality and craftsmanship. In 1839 Antoine Patek and Francois Czapek started their watch company where they only catered to royalty or elite members of society. It wasn’t until 1844 that Antoine Patek met Adriene Philippe, who had just revolutionized the watch industry with his key-less watch winding and hand-setting system, and they started the Patek Philippe business together. Within the first year, they had already created their first pocket watch. As the business grew, Patek partnered with Tiffany & Co. in hopes to grow their brand internationally. In that time, Philippe invented the mainspring named “slipping spring” and had already grown their models. Once Patek Philippe partnered with the Stern Brothers in 1932, all the popular models like the Patek Philippe Nautilus, Calatrava, Golden Ellipse, and many more were born.
