Patek Philippe offers more than 150 different watches in eight collections. Its extensive catalogue underscores the company's leading position in the market for luxury and premium watches.

Nautilus: Casual elegance at the cutting edge of technology

Launched in 1976, the Nautilus collection embodies the casual elegance of the Patek Philippe brand. Its strikingly unique design consists of three elements: the case, which is inspired by a nautical bull’s eye, the bezel, which is always octagonal, and the characteristic dial with embossed decorative elements, many of which are unique. The globally renowned designer Gérald Genta is the creative force behind Patek Philippe watches. For a dynamic touch, certain models are water-resistant to 120 metres.

An elliptical case, between a circle and a rectangle. A dial in blue gold, with gold hands and hour markers floating over its depths. When it first appeared in 1968, Patek Philippe’s golden Ellipse was a bold departure from traditional watch shapes. But far from bowing to fashion, this innovative watch had a sense of inner harmony that was very pleasing to the eye. Its design was inspired by the principle of the “golden section” discovered by the ancient greek mathematicians. This “divine” proportion, expressed as a ratio of 1 / 1.6180, forms the basis of some of history’s greatest works of art and architecture.

Calatrava: The legendary classic

The Calatrava collection has been emblematic of the classic design and inimitably elegant style of Patek Philippe since 1936. Its simple aesthetics and clear layout have brought the Calatrava plaudits from around the globe. It is a true pioneer and archetype of round wristwatch shapes.

A descendant of the famous Patek Philippe World Time watches launched during the 1930s — and which have become cult models among keen travelers and collectors — Reference 5230 was introduced in 2016. For the first time, Patek Philippe is interpreting this cosmopolitan timepiece in a platinum case combined with a blue dial and strap. The dial center is adorned with a new circular hand-guilloched motif. The ultrathin self-winding movement with its two city and 24-hour rotating disks serves to keep simultaneous and permanent track of the time in all 24 time zones.

Thanks to an ingenious mechanism patented in 1999, the user can simultaneously correct all the World Time displays in one-hour increments by simply pressing the pusher at 10 o’clock.

Patents: Innovations for the watch industry


Patek Philippe’s history is marked by remarkable successes and impressive feats of watchmaking. The company's ceaseless pursuit of new developments, especially in the field of mechanical watches, has resulted in more than 100 patents, all of which are of major significance to the entire industry. It has also produced more highly complex pocket watches and wristwatches than any competing manufacturer. Patek Philippe’s catalogue of inventions includes the ubiquitous winding crown, the watch incarnation of the perpetual calendar, and the split-seconds chronograph (rattrapante). The company can look back proudly on a long and unique tradition of horological innovation.

The workshops: the birthplace of small masterpieces


Patek Philippe’s legendary reputation is its most precious possession. It is bolstered by precision and tradition. Experts laud the company’s ateliers in Plan-les-Ouates near Geneva as unparalleled paragons of excellence. Even though the facilities are equipped with machines at the cutting edge of technology, most of the work is done manually by superbly trained watchmakers. Patek Philippe only uses ébauches, cases and essential components that have been produced in-house. Its 21 basic calibres are modified to create 45 distinct designs. Each movement is assigned an individual number before it is archived. This ensures that every single watch remains clearly identifiable in future.

Patek Philippe has upheld the craftsmanship and tradition of Genevese watchmaking since 1839. The company is the last independent, family-owned watch manufacturer in Geneva. This gives the Stern family complete freedom to pursue the goals once voiced by the company founders Antoine Norbert de Patek and Jean-Adrien Philippe: ‘building the world's best watches.’ The workshops have been in the Stern family for four generations; Thierry Stern has been their manager since 2009.
