Patek Philippe for Father’s Day
by Mike Manjos on June 1st, 2010As time passes, Father’s Day is the time of year that has evolved and become most poignant to me. Both as a father, and as a son, it has taken on different sentiments over the years.
Patek Philippe’s tag line is “You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation.” Although marketing campaigns seldom resonate with me, this one does, because it demonstrates a respect for the past and fascination for the future, which is at the core of what it means to own a Patek.
The truth is any Patek Philippe is the best watch to give and receive on Father’s Day. From a simple Calatrava 5119 to the complication of the 5960, all pieces embody the affections of generations of children toward their fathers – and vice versa.
