Patek Philippe Opens New Workshops in Le Brassus, Switzerland

Patek-Philippe-repair-facility-Le-Brassus-Switzerland

Patek Phillipe, luxury Swiss-brand watchmaker, has opened a brand new production facility in Le Brassus, Switzerland, at the end of 2010 to answer the ever-increasing demand for their masterpieces. The new facility’s official inauguration was held on December 9, 2010, when Philippe Stern, Honorary President of the brand, traveled to the facility to launch the celebration.

The new facility employs 25 people, but that figure is expected to double in the next few years. The facility is broken into three different workshops: the actual watch-making workshop, overseen by 12 expert watchmakers (all of whom specialize in Patek Philippe perpetual calendar movements); the Haute Horlogerie workshop, which is run by five watchmakers who assemble, finish and case the timepieces (as well as oversee the acoustic regulation of self-winding minute repeaters); and finally the International Customer Service, which employs eight watchmakers who maintain and repair complicated Patek Philippe luxury watches.

The building site was previously owned by La Pierrette, and it has four different levels and a basement. As Patek Philippe watches continue to rise in popularity, the boundaries of the new facility will continue to be pushed.
