Seller: world_antique (5.094) 100%, Location: Europe , Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 143254843729 History of famous company Patek Philippe began 160 years back, in 1839, when to Geneva officer of the Polish cavalry Antoni Norbert Patek arrived Philip de Pravdzhich, taking part in a revolt during occupation of Bel'vederskogo of palace in Warsaw. Since it was cruelly low-spirited, Patek Philip, as well as thousands of other Poland, rescued from pursuit, was forced to abandon Motherland. Some time he gets a lesson describe vividly for the known landscape-painter A. Kalama, and then carries with horology. Teaming up with other Polish emigrant - watch-maker Fransua Chapekom, Patek Philip registers a sentinel firm, the task of which consisted of that, to survive in a cutthroat competition with other Swiss brands which by that time already were the acknowledged authorities of business sentinel. A young company spares basic attention a design: partners buy for the best producers mechanisms and place them in own corps. In 1845 Chapek walks away from businesses, and Antuan de Patek as a result of searches of new partner meets with Adrienom Filipppom - by the talented French watch-maker, which a revolutionary on sentinel business invention - development of mechanism, led unassisted key belonged to. Partners swore to devote the lives “creation only of the best and dear clock”. Since exclusive design, dear materials, perfection and exactness of the most difficult mechanism, collected by hand, all and singular distinguishes clock of legendary firm Patek Philippe. Exactly combination of these undeniable dignities overmastered the hearts of famous clients of Patek Philippe. In the number of first were Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, in future Patek Philippe became the possessors of clock more than 30 reigning monarchs and four chapters of Roman Catholic Church. At different times works of sentinel and jewelers art of Patek Philippe were owned And. Einstein, Vagner, м. of Curie, Kipling, Sh. Bronte.The clock of Patek Philippe became character of respectability, index of public status, blameless style and discriminating taste of man, carrying them.An unique archive from 800 books, in which all of history of creation and further fate of all of clock is traced Patek Philippe from 1839 and till today, is kept in Geneva headquarters of Patek Philippe. A clock, belongings to Leo to Nick to Tolstoi and Peter to Il'ichu Chaykovskomu, is marked in records; pocket clock of princess Ekateriny Dolgorukoy - inamorata and afterwards wife Alexandra II, watch, once belongings to the two greatest scientists-physicists: To Albert to Einstein and Maria Kyuri, and also liked the queen of Victoria on the World exhibition of 1851 gold clock-medal’ on, decorated blue by an enamel and cuttings decorated diamonds “rose”.C of 1932 and till today a company is headed by the representatives of family of Chtern, and the name of president and proprietor of firm Patek Philippe passed Philip Chterna under accompaniment of endless conversations about development of sentinel industry, the present head of Patek Philippe never bound the future to business of family. Philip chosen the economic faculty of the Geneva University and after his completion two years studied computer business in Germanium. Nevertheless suggestion of father of to on to work in the New York office of company pleased Philip. Engaged in the matters of firm in America, he unexpectedly found out in itself traction to horology and finally decided to devote him all of further life. Today children of Philip Chterna are a son T'erri and daughter Christina - work in domestic business. One of the most reverent traditions in family - on the twentieth birthday to present the child in a gift clock of Patek Philippe. Favorite employments of chapter of company Patek Philippe are rolling on mountain ski and yachting. Participating in numerous competitions repeatedly brought victory Philip Shternu: already being a president was seven times awarded with him rank of “King of the Geneve lake”.Success of legendary sentinel firm Patek Philippe consists in combination of two basic principles: aspiring to the innovation and following tradition. The clock-works of Patek Philippe were repeatedly acknowledged most difficult in the world. Until now nobody succeeded to overmaster the top of technical trade of watch-makers of Patek Philippe is an astronomic clock “Caliber 89”, possessing 33 functions and consisting of 1728 details. The results of testing of clock of Swiss firms were erected by the wares of Patek Philippe in the grade of the most exact clock annually in a period from 1880 to 1964.Patek Philippe demonstrates reputation of sentinel firm, constantly aspiring to perfection, constantly. For example, awarded with the wrist watches of Annual Calendar in 1996 of reward “Clock of year” - they take into account duration of all of months automatically, except for February, and require the correction of time only one time in a year. Exactly Patek Philippe became the unique sentinel firm, all and singular the clock of which is marked the higher sign of sentinel perfection - Geneva brand. Awarded with the clock of far not all of Swiss brands this desirable sign.On an account a company are numerous records of exactness, 15 large patented developments. A new factory was recently built in order that a company could fully control weigh process of production of clock up to the tiniest detail. Today weigh the process of assembling of clock passes exceptionally on the factory of Patek Philippe, unlike many Swiss of sentinel firms, buying the different details of clock on other factories. A firm raises the masters: specialists of Patek Philippe promote the trade at special school of company. In fact for development of the simplest masculine clock leaves about nine months, and the most difficult in the world clock “Caliber 89” demanded tedious work during 9 years. Clearly, why firm categorically against maintenance of the clock somewhere, except for as at passing the special teaching of sentinel masters. All of clock of Patek Philippe are produced small parties (only near 20000 copies in a year), that absolutely corresponds philosophy of company: to create wonderful and perfect works of art, but not serial device for measuring of time.The special attention of Patek Philippe spares the design of the wares. Each of sentinel collections of firm is based on exactly faithful, peculiar only to it, aesthetic principles, allowing a clock to remain modern, even if they were made a few decades back. Collection of Clatrava first saw light in 1932, since the classic strictness of clock of Calatrava remains topically more than 60 years. The name of collection was given by the decorative pattern cross of Calatrava, becoming the emblem of firm Patek Philippe. Collection of Golden Ellipse the theory of classic architecture of Golden age underlay with its principle of divine proportions. The visiting-card of collection was become by a dark blue clock-face. He is got as a result of difficult technological process by mixing of gold with a cobalt (“dark blue gold” is a patent of Patek Philippe). For the lady clock of this collection an unusual design was developed: a corps is complemented joining to him mobile ellipse kind в links, allowing a clock comfortably to be disposed on a wrist. The clock of collection of Nautilus can be known on a characteristic bangle the polished and mat links of which are processed and going by hand.
