Patek Philippe & Co Swiss Masters of Watchmaking

This ad from 1951 was created for the Swiss watch manufacturers Patek Philippe & Co. It depicts a piece of paper fluttering against a starry night sky, announcing that the Geneva-based company are ‘masters of horology’. Indeed, the firm’s watches boast such illustrious customers as Pope Pius IX, the British Queen Victoria and Victor Emmanuel III of Italy. Founded in 1851, Patek Philippe & Co are a well-respected manufacturer of Swiss watches, considered to be one of the world’s best.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
