Patek Philippe was founded in Geneva in 1839 by Antoine Norbert de Patek and François Czapek. Since that date, Patek Philippe has perpetuated the art of fine watchmaking in Geneva, boasting an unrivaled reputation and setting the highest technical and esthetic standards within the industry. Today headed by President Thierry Stern, Honorary President Philippe Stern, and CEO Claude Peny, Patek Philippe is the last independent family-owned manufacture in Geneva, in the hands of the Stern family since 1932. Patek Philippe's complete creative freedom allows it to conceive, develop, and produce watches that specialists over the world consider the finest. Along with its exceptional traditions and heritage, Patek Philippe places great importance on innovation, having registered over 80 patents. Every component and movement is submitted to unequaled quality control, benefiting from precise hand-finishing and incomparable attention to detail. The Patek Philippe manufacture and administrative headquarters are located in Plan-les-Ouates, while the Patek Philippe Museum in Geneva, born from Philippe Stern's legendary passion for exceptional timepieces, houses an extraordinary and unique collection of watches, automata, and miniatures enamels dating from the 16th century to the present.
