How long does it take to make a Patek Philippe?
The time it takes to make a Patek Philippe watch varies based on the model, the assembly of pieces and the sourcing of materials. It’s generally believed that the time varies depending on the complexity of the watch — reportedly, it takes up to nine months for the brand to create one of its more basic models, while a more complicated timepiece will yield a production time of at least two years.
