Patek Philippe: Wanting the Perfect Numeral

This is a film about patience. Patek Philippe President Thierry Stern describes why a set of tiny gold numerals was important enough for him to wait patiently for them. It took years, but he believed they would make a difference to the beauty and longevity of the Perpetual Calendar Ref. 5496P. This is just one example of the difference that being family-owned makes to the creation of watches at Patek Philippe.
