Antoni Norbert Patek was a Polish pioneer in watchmaking and a creator of the Patek Philippe & Co., one of the most famous Swiss watchmaker companies.

The "Patek" company has belonged to its current owners only since 1932, when Jean and Karol Stern bought it ..
Earlier they dealt with the production of watch faces.

from the Wiki page: The Sky Moon Tourbillon Ref 5002 is currently the world most complex complication timepiece. At present only 3 pieces are produced a year. Owners of these watches are selected by Patek Co as they are highly sought after. They are sold primarily to collectors rather than traders so as to avoid the flipping of watches for profits.

crazy.

Ferrari also selects buyers
In Poland, we say "who will prohibit the rich?"

P. S
I wrote the subject to show that Poles also exist in the world of watchmaking

I write about selected models, like Patek, there is a strong selection,
You can buy Calatrava Patek easily, just like the "regular" Ferrari
