Inside the All-new Workshops of Patek Philippe
Cheryl Chia, writing for Revolution Magazine, provides a behind-the-scenes look at Patek Philippe’s new, vertically-integrated manufacturing facilities located in Plan-les-Ouates. An unassuming, 10-story building (nearly half of which is underground) dubbed PP6. Weighing in at a cost of CHF 600 million, the new building was architected by Frisk de Marignac Pidoux with interior work by Frei & Stefani.
From the machine of raw materials through to hand finishing and grand complications, PP6 subsumes the roles of PP5 and brings many of the company's previously disparate manufacturing specialties under one roof, including the Patek Philippe Advanced Research department.
