WHO THEY ARE Founded in 1839 by Pol­ish trader An­toine Nor­bert de Patek and watch­maker Fran­cois Cza­pek, it got its name when Patek formed a new part­ner­ship with French watch­maker JeanA­drien Philippe. CLAIM TO FAME Patek Philippe, now a Swiss com­pany, has over 70 patents for its watch move­ments and de­signs like the dis­jointed wind­ing shaft and per­pet­ual cal­en­dar mech­a­nism. It is one of the most pres­ti­gious and revered watch brands in the world, and com­mands top prices at auc­tions. WHAT’S HOT Two Cala­trava wrist­watches for ladies: The Ref 7121 with moon-phase com­pli­ca­tion, and the Ref 7200 pow­ered by an ul­tra­thin move­ment mea­sur­ing just 2.53mm thin.
