The Stern family has owned the Patek Philippe manufacture since 1932 when they became the sole shareholders of what is now the oldest independent Genevan manufacture owned by a single family. The freedom that only independent companies benefit from has meant that Henri, followed by Patek Philippe and now, Thierry Stern, have been able to lead Patek Philippe’s evolution and growth with determination, passion and loyalty towards the company’s founding values, which have prevailed since its creation in 1839.

Patek Philippe also benefits from total freedom of creation. The manufacture fully masters the watchmaking process, from design to production, controlling all the pieces from beginning to end, meeting high standards of quality and excellence.

Thierry Stern, President of Patek Philippe, is currently working on training and raising the awareness of future generations, so they will continue in the legacy of excellence, firmly devoted to the values that have forged a worldwide reputation.
