Patek Philippe has a long history of being huge and glorious company: seriously protecting its heritage, and what’s the important is that the service of this company. Many brand timepiece trend the fad or new style of the watches, but Patek Philippe, each one being carefully considered, taking as much time as necessary to make a well-informed decision with purpose. They are focus on being “tradition and trust”. So, it’s the right idea to bring the Patek Philippe on the correct road.
The purpose of the Patek Philippe Seal was to create a new, world recognized benchmark for Patek Philippe watches that would incorporate all of the standards that have always made a Patek Philippe watch special. This decision was not made in an egotistical manner but rather was aimed at formalizing and communicating what stands behind the Patek Philippe quality, internally and outside the company, and to bring a stronger guarantee of excellence to their customers. The directives of the Patek Philippe Seal are very strict, stronger than any other benchmark from any other watch company and most importantly envelop the watch in its entirety. And so after more than 120 years, Patek Philippe has started to replace the long standing Geneva Seal with the Patek Philippe Seal beginning in mid 2009. This change over will take approximately 2 years to complete and like the Geneva Seal will only apply to mechanical watches.
With perfect idea, they design a a great seal for the Patek Philippe watches.
How and why, does the Patek Philippe Seal differ from the Geneva Seal? Firstly, the Patek Philippe Seal encompasses the entire watch that is being delivered to the customer as whole, not fractional pieces of the finished product. Of course all watches will continue to respect the exact standards of fit and finish that have always existed at Patek Philippe such as to meet a timing rate of -3/+2 seconds per day for watches with mechanical movements of more than 20 mm in diameter. This timing test is administered on the finished/complete watch in a dynamic manner that more accurately resembles real wearing conditions as compared to the current industry standard (COSC) that is carried out in static positions for the movement only. The reasoning here is simple, a customer purchases a watch, not only a movement, and expects his/her watch to keep accurate time. It is a well known fact that once a movement is fit into its case the overall accuracy will inevitably change, so guaranteeing the finished product accuracy is very important.
The Patek Philippe Seal goes far beyond the time keeping accuracy of every Patek Philippe watch. Each and every component is controlled numerous times prior to being assembled to create a watch, and controlled again as a completely finished Patek Philippe watch. By the time a Patek Philippe watch is completed there have been hundreds of quality assurance inspections carried out, and each inspection must meet the directives mandated by the Patek Philippe Seal, without exception. Even the precious gems used as adornments are not immune to the scrutiny of the Patek Philippe Seal as they must be of the highest quality (Top Wesselton) in all aspects and must be set to very exacting specifications. Never are adhesives used, and all gems are set in either radial, or linear positions in order to amplify their cut and brilliance.
Service is the final, and possibly most important, guarantee of the Patek Philippe Seal. To create a fine watch is only half the story, especially if there is nothing standing behind it after the sale. Patek Philippe has always stood behind every watch they have produced, no matter the age. The Patek Philippe Seal guarantees, in writing, that every aspect of your watch will be serviceable for many future generations. Great after sales service requires a strong and tight-knit structure between the manufacture, distributors, and retailers. Every watchmaker who services a Patek Philippe watch must complete continuous and vigorous training, which guarantees that every watch can be returned to the customer meeting original factory specifications.
It is the principle of the Patek Philippe factory, and the personal guarantee of designer and president that puts weight behind the Patek Philippe Seal. They are the legal person of the Seal collectively. It is not by accident that your Patek Philippe watch keeps perfect time, your minute repeater sounds perfect, the case is of the highest quality in terms of finish and material content, and the movement parts are all hand-finished to the highest standards in the industry. There is no substitute for respect. Respect for watchmaking, respect for the customer, and most importantly, respect for the longevity of your watch and its relationship with the Patek Philippe company..
So, the Patek Philippe focus the new idea, design, culture and good service. Especially, the good service. So the Patek Philippe watches are more and more popular, so it influence the increasing of the Patek Philippe replica watches.
