Introducing a piece of watchmaking history to our Watch Cufflinks selection. From probably the most famous watchmaker in the world, Patek Philippe.
If you are into watches or not, you have probably heard the name Patek Philippe before.
Patek Philippe was founded in Geneva in 1839 by polish watchmaker Antoni Patek and his friend Franciszek Czapek. The company was called Patek, Czapek & Cie and they produced pocket watches. After a couple of years, in 1845, the two friends separated due to disagreements. However later the same year the french watchmaker Adrien Philippe joined the new company which was called Patek & Cie.
In 1851 the company name was officially changed to Patek, Philippe & Cie.
The interesting part of the brands history, in my opinion, starts in 1932 when the swiss Stern-family acquires the company. Patek Philippe has stayed in the Stern-family ever since.
The same year as the Sterns acquired the company, the legendary Calatrava ref. 96 was born and the Calatrava-series has been a core in the Patek Philippe collection ever since.
In the following years, Patek Philippe produced many legendary watches and were known for their sophisticated design, amazingly finished and complicated watches and their overall superb quality. Some of the references produced during the 50’s to 70’s that are highly sought after today is for example the ref. 1518, ref. 1563, ref. 2499, ref. 3448 and of course the 3700. The 3700 is better known as the Nautilus and was designed in 1976 by the legendary designer Gerald Genta.
From the watchmaker that has brought us legendary watches such as the Nautilus and the Ellipse we are proud to introduce a fine pair of Watch Movement Cufflinks.
