Patek Philippe ends up with Tiffany?
The partnership between Tiffany & Co and Patek Philippe began in 1851 when Antoine Norbert de Patek was looking for the world's best retailers for his watches and met Charles Lewis Tiffany at his New York store. With a small talk, the jeweler and watchmaker established a relationship of honesty and excellence that continues to this day.
However, American collectors confirm the closure of Patek Philippe corners in Tiffany boutiques on the US West Coast. And this is after the ceremonial launch of the last Nautilus 5711 in blue and Audrey Hepburn's favorite colors and the furore it created.
There are rumors ranging from “Tiffany was punished by Patek for offering watches only to customers with a rich history of buying Tiffany jewelry” to “Tiffany finally passed into the hands of LVMH, so the 170-year friendship and dealership ended.” What really happened and how it will end - only time will show, it remains only to wait for news and confirmation. So far, it is known for certain that Patek continues to sell at Tiffany's flagship on 5th Avenue in New York.
