Raymond Lee Jewelers of Boca Raton, FL was founded in the year 1983. The jewelry store of Boca Raton continues to offer extraordinary service to its clientele and the widest selection of jewelry and watches in South Florida. One of the many brands of watches carried by the store is Patek Philippe.
Patek Philippe & Co. is a Swiss watch manufacturer that was founded in the year 1851. Patek Philippe is known for manufacturing some of the most complicated mechanical timepieces, and thus, they are highly prized. For instance, on May 10, 2010 a Patek watch, produced in 1943, held the record for being sold for $5.50 million US through Christie’s auction. Unlike Rolex, for example, the company does not produce thousands of watches per day. The company focuses its time more on producing complicated movements. In 1989, Patek Philippe created one of the most complicated watches ever made (Calibre 89), which took almost 5 years to research. The watch holds 39 complications, such as the date of Easter, equation of time, sidereal time, among numerous other functions.
Patek Philippe is notable for having pioneered the perpetual calendar, split-seconds hands, minute repeater, and chronograph.
