The History of Patek Philippe Watches

Credited with making the first wristwatch in 1898, Patek Philippe was launched in 1839 by Francois Czapek, a watchmaker, and Antonit Patek, a businessman, who were both Polish immigrants. The original watch crafted by Patek Philippe included a split-seconds hand, perpetual calendar, minute repeater and chronograph. For a company considered new and up-and-coming, this was an impressive feat at the time. In 1932, the company was purchased by the Stern family, and Patek has evolved and come quite a far way from its humble beginnings. In fact, in 2002 alone, the company produced more than 40,000 watches. Today, Patek Philippe watches are still sold for high prices due to their intricate mechanical features and unique look.
