Polish watchmaker Antoni Patek began making pocket watches in 1839, by 1851, Patek and French watchmaker Adrien Philippe joined to found Patek Philippe & Co as a Swiss luxury watch manufacture. Over the decades, Patek’s timepieces and movements have included the most complicated mechanical watches and today Patek Philippe is widely considered as the World’s Most Prestigious Watch Manufacturer. Patek Philippe pioneered the perpetual calendar, split-seconds hand, chronograph, and minute repeater in watches. Though the company produces mainly manual and automatic movements, they have produced quartz and digital watches in the pas. Patek Philippe timepieces have recorded high prices in auctions worldwide. In 2010, the company produced 40,000 watches.Patek Philippe once produced an ultra-complicated 24 functions pocket-watch for Henry Graves, Jr. –who entered into a friendly horological competition with James Ward Packard, which resulted in this watch known as “The Supercomplication”. It was sold to Mr. Graves in 1933. After his death, the watch was auctioned at Sotheby’s in December 1999 for USD$11,000,000, at that time the most expensive timepiece ever sold.

COMPLETED EXCEPTING FINAL HAND POLISH OF CASE AND DIAL

 On July 16, 1867, a new watch was made and it was named the H. Z. Culver. The slow train was then adopted on all the new movements brought out and they appeared on the market as follows; J. T. Ryerson, October 14, 1867; H. H. Taylor, November 20, 1867; G.W. Wheeler, November 26, 1867 and Matthew Laflin, January 2, 1868. (Laflin and Ryerson both sat on the Elgin’s board of directors and Laflin’s family did so for more than 70 years.)

 On May 20, 1869 the first “Lady Elgin” made its appearance and was the first of a series of 10 size movements and it was also key wind. This was followed on August 24, 1870 by the Francis Rubie, which was adjusted to temperature, on September 8, 1871 by the Gail Borden (of Elsie fame) and on December 20, 1871 by the Dexter Street.

 Elgin and most other watch companies sold their movements to wholesaler’s who then sold them to the jewelry shops. The customer would pick out the case of his choice, add the dial and then the jeweler would put them together. Only about 10% of the cases sold were solid gold.

 The first stem wind movement was placed on the market June 28, 1873. It was a B. W. Raymond movement made over, and was followed shortly by the Culver, Taylor, Wheeler, Laflin and Ogden movements.
