Widely considered one of the most prestigious luxury watchmakers in the world, Patek Philippe watches are acclaimed by connoisseurs of the art of horology. The brand’s long history, which dates back to 1839, has seen it produce some of the most complicated watches in the world. Popular models stocked by Blowers include the Aquanaut, Calatrava, Gondolo, and Nautilus.
Many notable artists, entrepreneurs, intellectuals, politicians, and even royals have been known to wear Patek Philippe watches. Wearers include the likes of Albert Einstein, Nelson Mandela, Pablo Picasso, and Queen Elizabeth II. The brand has also created some of the world’s most sought-after timepieces, with The Henry Graves Supercomplication collecting a world-record CHF 17 million at a Sotheby’s auction in 1999.
One of the brand’s slogans is, ‘You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation.’ As the slogan suggests, an object as prized as a Patek Philippe watch is eminently worthy as both an heirloom and an investment.
While Patek Philippe watches are generally known to be amongst the most expensive watches on the market, in some cases, used Calatrava and Gondolo models can offer savings over new, and may provide an accessible means of entry to the elevated world of Patek ownership.
