All in the Curves

All in the Curves

The newely launched Twenty-4 Automatic watch by Patek Philippe comes at the right time and with right features.

The Myth

For over 60 years, Patek Phillipe, has rolled out one marvel after the other. With the capability of an astute manufacturer, with the right know-how, this Swiss House has created a narrative with its patents and models. 

The Click

The unusual presentation of this new watch, which was off schedule in Milan, proves the intrinsic originality of this model. It has totally got rid of its original adornment (the first Twenty-4 was launched in 1999 and was a rectangular quartz watch) to better reconcile the pleasure of the moment and the love for quality movement. This metamorphosis carries in its silage, the famous calibre 324C which all the lovers of the manufacture knows well.

The Expertise

The sleek round case, the hand-polished bracelet, delicately curved links, and original crimp type, lace, for the 7300 reference, in the heart of which all the flair of Sandrine Stern is manifested with brilliance. It is round, it is more casual and sportier and it is powered by an automatic movement. The brand has come out of its comfort zone, to craft a new way, subtly urban to save time. Patek has opted for a contemporary diameter of 36mm – again with the idea of targeting a younger clientele. However, this case is far more complex than just a round container. Changing the shape doesn’t mean that it totally eliminates the bracelet-like concept. The bracelet is still seamlessly integrated into the case, with the steps of the links following the steps of the lugs giving the watch a more tonneau-shaped silhouette. They sparkle with ultra-neat finishes, in particular the ranks of Geneva visible through a transparent sapphire background.  

Prized for its sophisticated silhouette, reliable timekeeping, and Patek Philippe craftsmanship the Twenty-Four is a must-have for any chic woman’s jewelry box.
