Patek Philippe is probably the most popular and
desired watch when it comes to collecting and owning a quality time piece.
In any publication where the history of watch making is mentioned, the
name of Patek Philippe invariably comes up. Books on wristwatches
are now being published more frequently. These books usually have
the history of wristwatches, significant changes through the decades and
the important watch houses. The books shown below are publications
which have a noteworthy feature on Patek Philippe. Whether it is
a concise history of the company or detailed photographs of wristwatches
past or present, the following volumes are worth getting.
As we have seen with Patek Philippe Geneve
- Wristwatches, the company is not afraid to offer the collector more
than their watches. If you are a owner of a Patek Philippe timepiece
you are entitled to their Patek Philippe Magazine. This is
published twice a year in a variety of languages. Although, the magazine
concentrates on a variety of subjects, articles on their watches feature
in each issue.
Collecting Patek Philippe manuals and brochures
can be another source of good reference material. Auction catalogues
as previously mentioned are always invaluable.
