We all leave something behind when we die. It can be material wealth or, more importantly, a legacy carried over by the memory of our name. Patek Philippe reminds us of the importance of leaving a respected name to our children. Although we know the signature timepiece is a luxury piece of precision engineering and style, the brand goes beyond the surface. It promises to keep on ticking for generations, literally handing over time to your children, which bespeaks of our general aspiration when we leave the world: a legacy that will connect us to the next generation. The house may burn down, the car will soon break down, and the inheritance will soon dissipate. But your name, however, you live by it, like a Patek Philippe, is your real treasure you can pass on to your children.
Patek Philippe is available at Shreve & Co. in Palo Alto, California.
