Q & A With Thierry Stern, President of Patek Philippe

Q & A with Patek Philippe President Thierry Stern

Q & A with Patek Philippe President Thierry Stern

A minute repeater is a mechanical watch complication that chimes with three different sounds to tell the time acoustically. It is activated by a pusher and chimes with different sounds to distinguish between hours, quarter hours and minutes. The minute repeater dates back to the 17th century, but it was in 1989 that Patek Philippe set out to bring the classic complication to their contemporary collection of timepieces.

The Insider section of Patek Philippe’s official website offers historical and technical information about minute repeaters, including an interview with their current president, Thierry Stern. In it he answers questions about his earliest memories with minute repeaters and the company’s commitment to incorporating the classic watchmaking complication in their current collection.

Patek Philippe offers the largest selection of minute repeaters for both men and women. It is a legacy handed down to Stern from his father and grandfather and has become part of the horological legacy of the watchmaker.
