Pat is the grandson of General George S. Patton. He served in the United States Navy from 1965–1970 and was a CIC Officer aboard the USS BRAINE, DD 630. Giving back is a big part of Pat’s life and for decades he has taken on the responsibility of honoring those who serve. He stays very active in his community and throughout the world. In addition to serving on The Brian LaViolette Foundation Board of Advisors, Pat has served on the Board of the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation, the Board of Trustees of Pfeiffer University (where he received his Business degree), and is a graduate of Mt. Pleasant Citizen’s Police Officers Academy. Pat established Waters Investments, LLC in 1971, which is still currently owned by him and his family. Water Investments, LLC owns and operates commercial and residential properties.
The Pere de Temps Patton is crafted in a timeless stainless steel tag style. With European lines in a bold look, the Patton was designed to encourage the wearer to lead the way.
The Brian LaViolette Foundation was formed by the LaViolette family to honor the memory of their son, Brian, who passed away in a swimming accident in Green Bay, Wisconsin when he was just fifteen years old in 1992. Brian was not only an excellent student, athlete, and musician, but he loved watches, starting his own collection when he was four years of age.
Since 1992, the Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation has presented 1,058 scholarships to deserving college-bound students in Northeastern Wisconsin, the United States, and other parts of the world. The Foundation continues Brian's legacy by helping high school seniors financially to achieve their educational dreams and, at the same time, providing them with encouragement and inspiration.
