The founders Antoine Norbert de Patek and Jean
Adrien Philippe vowed to produce only the world's finest watches and to honour
the watch making art by perpetuating the traditional values and the ceaseless
quest for innovation that are its lifeblood.
Several great landmark timepieces provided great sources of inspiration in the
development of the latest model, the Star Caliber 2000: the Leroy 01, Breguet's
Marie-Antoinette, as well as historic Patek Philippe timepieces the Graves, the
landmark Calibre 89, (the world's most complicated portable timepiece), the
Packard and the Duke of Regla, each an horological masterpiece in its own right.
