Patek Phillipe timepieces are the world’s best and steeped in history and tradition, here is a brief overview, as follows:

On 1 May 1839, 2 Polish immigrants, Antoni Patek and François Czapek joined forces to found “Patek, Czapek & Cie” in Geneva, respectively a businessman and watchmaker.

In 1844, the new firm met French watchmaker, Jean-Adrien Philippe in Paris where the latter presented his pioneering stem winding and setting system by the crown.

In 1845, when Mr. Czapek decided to leave the company and to continue on his own, the company name changed to “Patek & Cie”.

In 1851 Adrien Philippe became associated with the company, it was then renamed “Patek Philippe & Cie”, before changing once more in Y 1901 to “Ancienne Manufacture d’Horlogerie Patek Philippe & Cie, S.A.”.

In 1932, the company was purchased by the brothers, Charles and Jean Stern, owners of a fine dial manufacture in Geneva. Since then, “Patek Philippe S.A.” has remained a private family owned firm.

In 2009 the company presidency was officially transferred from the 3rd to the 4th generation: Thierry Stern became president and his father Philippe Stern, Honorary President.

If you have a PP that wants looking after contact Marcus Rosner, Mr. Rosner, whom I have known to over 40yrs is an expert in the field.

His firm, PatekMonger, is an effort to preserve vintage and discontinued Patek Philippe pieces through a lifetime of experience with the brand and precise restoration from expert watchmakers for current and future generations to enjoy.

Marcus Rosner founded the firm in Y 2017 after selling his jewelry store, which he owned and operated for 42 yrs in the Westwood Village neighborhood of Los Angeles.  During that frame, he was an authorized Patek Philippe dealer for all 42 yrs becoming the longest continuous running Patek Philippe dealer west of the Mississippi River.

Now he focuses on finding Patek Philippe pieces that time may have forgotten and restores them to their original condition so they can continue to be cherished and passed down by those who appreciate their classic design and craftsmanship.

Have a happy, healthy, prosperous weekend, Keep the Faith!
