Legendary watch brand Patek Philippe is offering up something for true fans of the brand. Though not a timepiece, the Patek Philippe: The Authorized Biography is 600 pages of a well crafted story by British author and historian Nicholas Foulkes complete with pictures and images usually reserved for a select few.

“I am very pleased to see the history of my family’s company come to life in this excellent volume,” says Philippe Stern, Honorary President of Patek Philippe (and father of current CEO Thierry Stern). “This is the first time that the Patek Philippe archive has been accessed and brought to life in a factual and definitive work. Nicholas Foulkes has perfectly recreated the atmosphere and details of our 175-year journey.”

The book retails for around $250 USD and is currently available for purchase directly through Patek Philippe.
