Video: Patek Philippe – Birth of a legend

This video hopefully summarises in 9 minutes what goes on behind the scenes of the most prominent watch manufacture today. Starting from drawn designs, through to being vetted by Thierry Stern himself, to making the baseplate and other components, hand-finishing and assembly. You’ll get some insights to the high tech tooling and machinery that helps craft these masterpieces. The video also covers case production and the testing and quality control process.

While you’re going through it, see if you can guess what watch they are basing the video on.
