Patek Philippe watches do something few watches do: They hold their value over time. Most luxury watches hold value as an heirloom passed through generations. Patek Philippe watches do that, and hold their monetary value, too. That’s a pretty impressive thing to do, so let’s unpack what’s happening here.
Jewelers agree, you should choose a watch you’re going to love wearing. That’s the most important reason. But, the Patek Philippe brand brings with it an additional value. They’re made one by one. The intricacies that go into each watch is the envy of watchmakers worldwide. Because Patek Philippe has never compromised on this, there’s a built-in rarity to them. You won’t find them for sale by owners very often, and vintage watches often break records auction houses.
