During the Polish Insurrection of 1830-1831, cavalry officer Antoine Norbert 

de Patek sought refuge in Geneva, the watchmaking and jewelry capital of the 

world.  Soon after, Patek partnered with François Czapek, establishing their 

watch manufacturing company called Patek, Czapek & C° in 1839.  Their first 

designs demonstrated a strong Polish influence reflective of revolutionary 

heroes, and 10th and 12th Century legends.After parting ways with Czapek, 

Patek joined forces with the French horologist Adrien Philippe following a 

serendipitous meeting at the Paris Exhibition of the Products of the Industryw

 here Patek exhibited the first keyless watch; a model that was later acquired 

by Queen Victoria. To this day, Patek Philippe stands in a class all its own.  

Famously known as the last family-owned independent Geneva watch 

manufacturer, Patek’s continuing dedication to high-quality craftsmanship 

and service provides the ultimate addition to your collection.
