Patek Philippe has been pursuing traditional Genevan watchmaking artistry without interruption since 1839. The manufacturer benefits from complete creative freedom, allowing it to design, develop, and craft watches that connoisseurs consider the world's finest – as pledged by its founders, Antoine Norbert de Patek and Adrien Philippe. In addition to exceptional skills, Patek Philippe also nurtures a tradition of innovation; over one hundred patents have been crowned.
Patek Philippe is known for making watches with extreme complications. Their grand complication watches are pieces of marvel and are unattainable, even for the most seasoned Patek collector. They are best known for their Nautilus and Aquanaut series of watches which are very sporty in their designs. The Nautilus is the most sought-after collection, with their pieces in the secondary market trading in the millions of dollars sometimes.
If you are looking for something classic from one of the oldest manufacturers in the world and part of the holy trinity group, you cannot go wrong with Patek. Whereas AP focus on their finishing and their polish, no one pays more attention to their movements than Patek, known for mixing various complications in a single timepiece, simply because they can. You will not find a watch with better complications anywhere in the industry, and this reputation has kept Patek part of the Holy Trinity for over a century.
