The Last Independent, Family-Owned Genevan Manufacturer

Patek Philippe's undisputed supremacy also stems from the consistency with which the company has applied its philosophy of excellence ever since it was founded in 1839. That spirit is embodied in ten values that have always represented the very essence of Patek Philippe and will continue to do so for generations to come.

The Patek Philippe Seal

Patek Philippe stands for the high quality and dependability of its timepieces. To enforce and sustainably safeguard compliance with the rules at every level, Patek Philippe created its own quality seal that applies to all of its mechanical timepieces regardless of their complexity.

The Ten Values Of Patek Philippe

The fact that the Patek Philippe manufacture enjoys such a unique reputation and respect among connoisseurs is due not only to the perfection of its timepieces and the artistry of its watchmakers. This standing also stems from the consistency with which it has remained true to its quest for perfection ever since it was founded in 1839. The Patek Philippe mentality is also embodied in ten corporate values that have always represented the ideas and work of the manufacture and will continue to do so for generations to come.




Patek Philippe was founded in 1839 and its history is part of Geneva's great watchmaking tradition. It is the story of a unique heritage, a combination of experience, ingenuity and passion that the company safeguards and revitalizes in all its disciplines and skills. Faithful to the noble artisanal techniques, its watchmakers and craftsmen perpetuate, day after day, the beautiful, timeless gestures and the sharpness of eye and deftness of touch that have always distinguished the fine art of watchmaking. These skills live on in perfect harmony with the most advanced technology.

Begin Your Own Tradition

You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation.

Built from a universal and human truth, the 'Generations' campaign has evolved and grown to reflect the times and capture the emotion, personality and candid nature of a relationship between parent and child.

The ten values of Patek Philippe truly embody the essence of the brand. For me, exploring with our clients these values, such as heritage, innovation, service and emotion, is such an important part of the Patek Philippe journey.
