A Swiss brand Patek Philippe was founded by an ordinary Polish soldier and a member of Polish rebellion against Russia. After a young man had left Poland he arrived in Switzerland, where he actively began to develop his artistic talents. In some time Antoni Patek was lucky enough to purchase his first wrist watches, which were sold by him profitably later, and this was the way how a small business selling watches to wealthy Polish gentlemen appeared.
In 1939 Mr. Patek founded a company that produced reliable wrist watches according to the best Swiss examples officially and some Franciszek Czapek became his partner. Things of both businessmen were going bad to choose the words carefully, as there was no staff in their company and all even the simplest cares fell on their shoulders. In 1844 Patek decided to make a radical decision - break up partnership with Czapek and having met that year a Frenchman, the inventor of oscillator, whose name was Adrian Philippe, he made him a partner and in 1845 already the company, the name of which is known all over the world – Patek Philippe – appeared. This year new partners signed an agreement with Vincent Gostowsky, who was responsible for accounting and paperwork including business mails. Patek was a chief manager and the face of the company, and he was dealing with marketing sphere. Philippe was responsible for the production of watches, development and improvement of watch mechanisms.
In 1850 the first long-awaited wrist watches Patek Philippe for an affordable price were released, they were entitled Ebauches, “PP” letters were proudly shining on their dial. Since that time the things of the company looked promising and financial difficulties did not disturb the company any more. Soon after the debut of genuine Patek Philippe watches the company began its business cooperation with the legendary American company Tiffany & Co, then the brand was recognized in the countries of Latin America and the territory of the USA. Due to such popularity it is possible to buy luxurious Patek Philippe watches with warranty and shipping practically all over the world and order them through the Internet store. In 1925 the brand released the watch with eternal calendar, which showed Moon phases too, the first chronographs were produced at that time as well. These models made their admirers buy Patek Philippe watches for the price with the discount that became possible with the increase of production volumes.
When in 1929 all the world was influenced by crisis Patek Philippe brand released the most technologically complex watch at that time. In 1932 Patek Philippe was bought by Stern brothers, who continued the business of its founders and improved it.
