Patek Philippe Pocket Watches

Patek Philippe’s first lavishly illustrated volume on pocket watches is the definitive reference work on the company’s production, from the first Patek & Czapek watches of 1839. Some 280 watches are illustrated and described, including pocket watches of elegance and beauty, made for popes, princesses, Balkan kings and, of course, Queen Victoria. The complicated watches made for American magnates, including the legendary Graves watch, are described in detailed captions and color illustrations. There is a charming chapter on the adventures of the firm’s founder, Antoine Norbert de Patek, on a business trip to America in the 1850’s.

On the technical side, chapters cover such themes as Jean Adrien Philippe’s stem-winding system, tourbillons, carousels, chronometrical competitions and complications. Written by the authority on Patek Philippe, Alan Banbery, with Patek Philippe’s leading enthusiast, Martin Huber, it yields fresh information and renewed enjoyment at every perusal.
