76th Anniversary of the partnership between Patek Phillipe and Hamilton Jewelers

July marks the 76th anniversary of Hamilton’s valued partnership with Patek Philippe. In 1938, Hamilton established a relationship with Patek Philippe, which was further solidified in 1946 when Mr. Henri Stern paid Mr. Siegel a personal visit, four years after establishing the Henri Stern Watch Agency to directly distribute his timepieces to the United States market.

Today, Patek Philippe is Hamilton’s longest standing continuous supplier and one of the first international brands to join the product portfolio at Hamilton. Both firms share a passion for excellence and craftsmanship, and both remain family-owned.
