...Patek Philippe On Rolex...
CEO of Patek Philippe
Voices Opinion of Rolex
Hodinkee recently published an interview of the CEO of Patek Philippe, Thierry Stern. If you are not familiar with Patek Philippe you should visit Jake's Patek Philippe World. Essentially, if Rolex is the Mercedes-Benz of watches, Patek Philippe would be the Rolls Royce of watches.
Theirry Stern, said he "respects Rolex a lot" and went on to say:
"The quality of Rolex is fantastic, and to keep that so high making as many watches as they do is incredible. I would love to see the Rolex factory, but they never let me in!"
I hope the top brass at Rolex reads this and extends an offer to Theirry to tour their facilities, and visa versa. I would love to see Rolex and Patek Philippe collaborate together in the future. I think Patek Philippe should make special complicated Rolex watches for Rolex.
Theirry Stern is pictured below with his father, Philippe Stern.
Rolex used to make really cool complicated Rolex watches, like the yellow gold Rolex Triple Date Moonphase [Reference 6062], pictured below. Rolex, it is time to get back into making beautiful complicated watches again. Time to re-discover your magnificent legacy...
