Philip Watch is an old Italian Brand with Swiss roots.
In 1858 Mr Francois Philippe, from Swiss origin but was living in Italy had his designs produced in the Swiss Jura mountains. Not an ordinary thing but Mr Philippe knew that for good watches he had to be in his home country. In the 1930's Philippe watch was one of the early groundbreakers for making wristwatches instead of the (in those days) common pocket watches.
In 1949 thanks to a gentleman's agreement Philippe Watch changed his name to Philip Watch, to avoid legal issues with another company that was named Patek Philippe...
Philip Watch is nowadays best known for making Swiss quality watches at an affordable price.
With other words; the same watch from a better-known brand would cost between 5-10 times more.
Now after more than 150 years Philip Watch has built up a beautiful heritage with many typical watches. In the 1970's Philip Watch started with the Caribe line, a collection of Divers watches that still exists today.
In the 1980's a line of ladies watches was added with a more feminine character, but they were still 10 ATM water resistant.
Much of the knowledge Philip Watch had obtained in the run of more than 100 years of watch making was also used in a more well-known brand called Sector.
This brand with a clearly more sport orientated character is the sister brand of Philip Watch and was founded in the 1980's.
The collection of Philip Watch is built up of three main lines:
Heritage - A collection of watches inspired by 150 years of history of the brand.
Prestige - A collection of watches with a sporty, but distinguished background, just what you can expect from a Swiss watchmaker.
Gold - all of the watch cases in this line are made of 18 Carat Gold. The watches are still the same as they used to be in the golden days of watchmaking which was in the 1950's and 1960's.
