Maison Patek Philippe Beijing 2014
Maison Patek Philippe opens in Beijing

A Tribute to a Legacy - Rebirth of a “Mansion of Prestigious Origin” Patek Philippe, Beijing, China - May 26th, 2014

Following the opening of the Maison Patek Philippe Shanghai in 2012, the recently unveiled Maison Patek Philippe Beijing at Ch’ien Men 23 is the second Maison Patek Philippe in the world.

Comparable to a Patek Philippe Salon in both status and function, the Maison Patek Philippe Beijing aims to uphold the brand’s history, philosophy, and values. It also embodies the latest triumph after many years of collaboration between Patek Philippe and its long-time partner, the Melchers Group, since Patek Philippe entered the Chinese market in 2005.

Present at the opening ceremony, Honorary President Mr. Philippe Stern and President Mr. Thierry Stern reviewed the independent, family-owned Geneva watch manufacturer’s 175 years of history, introduced the style, positioning, and service philosophy of the Maison Patek Philippe Beijing and affirmed once again Patek Philippe’s long-term commitment to and confidence in the Chinese market.
