Patek Philippe Watches

Posted on December 10th, 2013 by Goldman Buyer

Patek Philippe, the legendary Swiss watch company, manufactures watches considered to be among the most beautiful and sought-after in the world.

The company was founded in 1851 by Antoni Patek, a Polish watchmaker, and Adrien Philippe, a French watchmaker. Every watch made since then can be traced to this day. Since each timepiece is complex, it can take anywhere from a little less than a year to two years to produce each watch.

The typical Patek Philippe wristwatch will cost $17,000 and boasts excellent craftsmanship. The company manufactures all of its own parts, owning over 70 patents. Since its founding, it has released many significant models.

The Calibre 89 pocket watch is one of the most memorable. One of the most complicated watches on Earth, it consists of 1,728 individual parts, including 24 hands, a thermometer and a star chart. It was created for the company’s 150th anniversary, taking designers and engineers nine years; five for research and four for production, to complete the timepiece.

From British royalty to Hollywood celebrities, many well-known people have sported Patek Philippe watches. If you want to see some of the history yourself, the Patek Philippe Museum opened in Switzerland in 2001.

We purchase Rolex Patek Philippe & other fine watches.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
