Patek Philippe’s greatest strength over many years has been the family values that it treasures and how it treats its loyal authorized dealers as part of its extended family.
Never has that been more important than during the current Covid-19 pandemic, with Patek’s partners in virtually all its major markets having to close their stores.
In response, Patek Philippe relaxed its rules that have prevented dealers selling its watches online, throwing them a lifeline at a time when consultants cannot meet with their customers.
Watches of Switzerland is selling Patek Philippe models on line in the UK, but does not appear to be following suit in the United States.
There are limits to the new way of working, and customers should not expect to find any steel Nautilus or Aquanaut watches online.
Watches of Switzerland in the UK has 23 models listed as available for next day delivery ranging from a Twenty-4 490/10A for £9,550 up to a diamond encrusted Gondolo 7099GG-001 for £85,070.
London Jewelers has some extraordinary pieces on a Patek Philippe 18k Rose Gold Gondolo Haute Joaillerie priced at $111,135.
Patek Philippe is not selling online from its own website.
