What Makes Patek Philippe Timepieces So Exclusive?
“You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely take care of it for the next generation.”
Since 1839, Patek Philippe has made exceptional quality watches. An immense amount of experience and an impressive degree of expertise is passed down from one generation to the next. Even though the case is made of traditional materials, its manufacturing techniques date to the 19th century. Because Patek Philippe has become an authority in exquisite watchmaking, several royalty owners have purchased Patek Philippe timepieces. The vast majority of its clients have been heads of state, royalty, and aristocracy worldwide.
Patek Philippe only produces 50,000 timepieces a year. This is a small number compared to other watch brands that create about one million watches per year. This is due to the exact production method of the Patek watch. With its most basic watches, it takes nine months to manufacture some of the company’s watches. Complex pieces can take two or more years to complete.

While prices for modern and vintage Patek Philippe watches on the secondary market are excellent, you may still get fantastic deals on both contemporary and historical pieces.
