Patek Philippe is a Swiss luxury watch manufacturer founded in 1839. It is known for its high-end timepieces, which are often considered some of the best in the world. The company was founded by Antoni Patek and Franciszek Czapek, who originally produced pocket watches. In 1845, Adrien Philippe, the inventor of the keyless winding mechanism, joined the company, and the name was changed to Patek, Philippe & Co. Patek Philippe has been owned and operated by the Stern family since 1932. The company is known for its innovations in the watchmaking industry, including the first wristwatch with a perpetual calendar and the first wristwatch with a split-seconds hand. It has also produced a number of iconic timepieces, including the Calatrava, the Nautilus, and the Aquanaut. Patek Philippe is known for its attention to detail and its use of high-quality materials in its watches, and its timepieces are often passed down as heirlooms.
