It is no wonder that the cost for the average Patek Philippe exists on a completely different scale than many other better watches such as Rolex. For anyone looking into acquiring such an excellent timepiece, they should expect a starting price of around $20,000 or more, for what could be described as an “entry-level” watch, such as the beautifully elegant Calatrava. At the top tier pieces of the brand, even something such as a production model from their Grand Complications Collection can run up into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. And that is omitting the one-offs, such as the Grandmaster Chime ref. 6300A-010.
Style-wise, Patek Philippe is exemplified by the most exacting attention to detail, from their unparalleled dial design to the extraordinary virtuosity poured into their in-house movements, each with a level of finishing which is second to none. So, between their matchless aesthetics, extreme exclusivity, flawless heritage, supreme engineering, and enduring reputation (everyone from the Dalai Lama to the two remaining Beatles are fans of the brand) Patek Philippe really is at the top of the haute horology food chain.
If you are thinking of buying a Patek for future investments or even for your own personal enjoyment I would advise to thoroughly research the company, or seek advice from a professional watch expert or appraiser! (such as ourselves) and also keep in mind, keeping a close eye on the current market. There is also a huge amount of information out there, but studying the different watch types and their specific features will be time well spent. Like anything, a particular model can fall in and out of fashion over time and so its price will be affected – and your first Patek Philippe watch should really be thought through.
As mentioned before, some of the best advice to give to those looking into these incredible watches is to seek and cultivate a relationship with watch experts. These are usually the people with the inside line on what models are becoming available. However, all that being said, this is still a watch that you are going to want to live with and wear, even if only on special occasions, and that must also influence your decision. Your own personal taste should play a major part in the final choice. Below are just a few of our selected Patek Philippe pieces that we think could be your next timepiece!
