To celebrate their partnership, Patek Philippe has developed a limited-edition of Nautilus wristwatches made of steel endowed with the well-known Tiffany Blue dials. As an unique characteristic we have, on this timepiece, a dual stamping of both companies, "Tiffany & Co." and Patek Philippe, the first one at 6 o'clock and the second one at 12 o'clock. The casually elegant icon was first used in 2006 and 2022 represents the end of it, as it will no longer be used in the collection.

170 Years Together

The two companies, Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co. were founded virtually in the same period, with only two years difference (1839 vs 1837). From the very beginning, the Genevan watch manufacture and the American jeweller have shared common values: the struggle for perfection, a dedication for artisanal skills and the highest appreciation for customers.

In 1851, Patek Philippe and Tiffany & Co. signed an agreement that made the latter Patek Philippe’s first official retail partner in the U.S. market. During Antoine Norbert de Patek’s first business trip to America, he reasserted the special importance of the relationship and took time to pay a visit, in New York, to Charles Lewis Tiffany. On his departure, he was impressed by the business volume of Tiffany & Co. and by leaving with an order of not less than 150 watches.

In 1876, a new agreement was signed appointing Tiffany & Co. the general representative in the United States. In turn, Patek Philippe pledged to safeguard its partner’s interests as proved by the huge lettering on the façade of its historic headquarters facing the Grand Quai - "Agents for Tiffany & Co., New York". Further proof of the well-grounded transatlantic relationship is provided on the premises of Patek Philippe Salons in Geneva, i.e. a large steel vault previously owned by Tiffany & Co. and decorated with an American eagle with two flags.

From 1900 to 1930, Tiffany & Co. also had a leading role in the relationships between Patek Philippe and American watch collectors among which Henry Graves Junior for whom Patek Philippe manufactured a full range of complicated watches. In 1946, the grandfather of Thierry Stern, the current president of Patek Philippe, created Henri Stern Watch Agency located in New York which took further the successful partnership.

In 2008, Patek Philippe strengthened its relationship with the overseas jeweller and opened a boutique on Fifth Avenue within Tiffany retail venue where one can admire the manufacture's complete current collection.

In the last two decades, Patek Philippe created some limited special editions for its American partner; they refer to important dates in their history and bear dual stamps for both companies. Today, Tiffany & Co. is the sole retailer in the world whose name is engraved on a Patek Philippe dial, making these timepieces highly desired by collectors.
