Philip Parker Watches is based in Stockholm, Sweden. Our Company is named after the Watchmaker and Watch Collector from Geneva, Switzerland, who is our co-founder and inspiring mentor. We manufacture Premium Watches of beautiful, simple, clean Scandinavian design, inspired by nature and the northern climate. Stockholm, the Capital of Sweden, was the place where functionalism blossomed since 1930s. The concept of Scandinavian design is characterized today by quality, simplicity, minimalism and functionality, accessible and available. The Scandinavian design is effective without needing heavy elements: only what is needed is used. The core theme behind all objects of Scandinavian design is that beautiful and functional objects should be affordable.
A watch movement (also known as a “calibre”) is the engine of a watch that acts as the powerhouse to make the watch and its functions work. Driving all of the timekeeping functions, the movement is the essential component in a watch and keeping accurate time; a watch would not function without it. We at Philip Parker Watches are very passionate about Swiss precision movement. Traditionally, Swiss movement is recognized as the standard for quality and precision and used in the Watches of Premium segment. That is why all of Philip Parker Watches are moved by the extremely accurate Swiss precision mechanism.
