Patek Philippe is a true watch manufacturer meaning that they control all stages in the making of our watches, from design to production, from assembly and finish to distribution. The uniquely comprehensive nature of our production method has many important benefits. Certain traditional skills and tools, which have not changed for hundreds of years, can still be used on a daily basis. The experience and know-how of our master watchmakers is passed on to new generations. They also preserve the traditional Art of Fine Watchmaking, the criteria of which were established by the Republic of Geneva in 1886, with the creation of the Geneva Seal. The Geneva Seal hallmark is the highest official endorsement of watchmaking quality and excellence. It certifies that all our watches have been made in this tradition. Tradition should always command respect.

Patek Philippe has been pursuing traditional Genevan watchmaking artistry without interruption since 1839. The manufacture benefits from full creative freedom, which allows it to design, develop, and craft watches that connoisseurs consider to be 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 that has meanwhile been crowned by over one hundred patents.
Patek Philippe is an independent manufacture with vertically integrated production. It has its own research and development department and creates and engineers all movements and external components in its own workshops. The individual parts of the movements and cases are produced, finished, and assembled in-house, from simple models and complicated timepieces to grand complications. This competence accompanies each watch during its entire lifetime – from the first sketches to final assembly. Patek Philippe services and repairs all of its watches ever made since 1839.
