What The Patek Philippe Company is Famous For

Swiss luxury watch maker Patek Philippe & Company was founded in 1851. Located in Geneva and the Vallée de Joux they design and create watches and timepieces with some of the most complicated mechanical internal workings on the planet. Patek Philippe invented the perpetual calendar, the split-seconds hand and the chronograph and minute repeaters. His company is famous for manufacturing their own watch components. 

What the Word ‘Complication’ Means in Watchmaking – Any addition to the function of displaying, hours, minutes and seconds. 

One of the Most Complicated Watches

One of the most complicated watches every created was released by Patek Philippe in 1989. It was called the ‘Calibre 89’ and was a commemorative for the company’s 150th anniversary. The watch contained 1,728 parts and 33 complications allowing; the date of Easter, the time of sunrise, sidereal time, equation of time, a 2,800 star chart and a leap year function which leaves out the extra day in 100 year intervals.
