Rare Handcrafts
Inspiration

For decades, Patek Philippe has been helping to preserve age-old decorative skills by regularly commissioning pieces from artists who are either independent, creating in their own studios, or who are based in the company’s Geneva workshop and dedicated to rare handcrafts. How does Patek Philippe ensure that these skills continue to flourish?
