About Patek Philippe

In 1989, Patek Philippe launched the Calibre89 to celebrate the company’s 150th anniversary and proudly announced that ‘this is the most complicated portable timepiece ever.’ Among them, the Easter date device, retrograde date pointer, and perpetual calendar design were patented in the 1980s. In order to better its own products than other brands, Patek Philippe always chooses the best materials. Gold, rose gold and platinum, 18K gold (purity 0.75), platinum purity as high as 0.95! It is worth mentioning that in 1999, a Patek Philippe pocket watch was auctioned in the United States for a sky-high price of $ 11 million, which is by far the ‘most expensive watch in the world’.
