Patek Philippe completa 175 anos de existência

Philippe and Thierry SternHoje, 1º de maio de 2014, a Patek Philippe completa 175 anos existência. A empresa é uma das pouquíssimas marcas de alto prestígio que ainda permanece sob controle familiar. Em 1929 Charles e seu irmão Jean Stern, fabricantes de mostradores e fornecedores exclusivos da marca, adquiriram a Patek Philippe, que se encontrava em situação financeiramente difícil, mais em função de problemas de gestão do que de mercado. Foi uma oportunidade única, pois a Patek Philippe está entre as cinco marcas de mais alto prestígio da indústria relojoeira, ao lado de Audemars Piguet, Breguet, Rolex e Vacheron Constantin.

A administração da empresa já está na quarta geração. Desde 2009 Thierry Stern, filho de Philippe Stern e bisneto do fundador, é o presidente ou CEO da empresa.

Patek Philippe SealFundada em 1839 por François Czapek e Antoine Norbert de Patek, cujos nomes originais eram Frantisek Czapek (Bohemia) e Antoni Patek de Prawdzic (Polonia), respectivamente, a Patek, Czapek & Cie. produzia sob encomenda algo como duzentos relógios de bolso por ano e contava com apenas seis colaboradores. Em 1845 Czapek retirou-se da sociedade e o francês Jean Adrien Philippe entrou como sócio. Em 1851 a razão social foi alterada Patek Philippe & Cie e em 2009 para Patek Philippe S.A. e assim permanece até hoje.

Patek Philippe NautilusEmbora seja quase impossível enumerar as celebridades que usam relógios da marca Patek Philippe, eis uma pequena relação: as rainhas Victoria e Elizabeth II da Inglaterra, Pablo Picasso, o atual Dalai Lama (que ganhou um modelo com cronógrafo do presidente Kennedy), Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Brad Pitt  e Angelina Jolie.

  5. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  11. Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
