Introducing the new Patek PhilippeTwenty~4; a timepiece created for the active modern woman - designed to accompany every moment of her life, day or night. Coupled with excellent technical performance associated with Patek Philippe, the brand has introduced a fresh interpretation of the original “manchette” or cuff-style quartz model created to such high acclaim in 1999. The two reimagined Twenty~4s feature white-gold applied Arabic numerals and white-gold applied trapeze-shaped hour markers, timepieces of ultimate beauty.
The two timepieces stylishly accompany an active lifestyle: the 4910/1200A-001 featuring an exquisite blue sunburst dial and the 4910/1200A-010 boasting a grey sunburst dial. Both embody timeless feminine elegance, something Patek Philippe have championed since their inception in 1839. Indeed, the brand were responsible for crafting the first true Swiss wristwatch for Countess Koscowicz of Hungary in 1868. A noted intellectual, she decided to wear the exquisite tiny watch on a gold bangle, the case front decorated in black enamel, set with rose-cut diamonds.
In 1999, Patek Philippe crafted their first dedicated feminine watch collection, the Twenty~4, seamlessly merging beauty with technical excellence – an ally on every occasion. The unique series of timepieces embodied the finest of craftsmanship, designed to match the assertive personality of their female wearer; a watch that could blend seamlessly from day to evening wear. The metallic bracelet was designed to be beautifully comfortable, whilst the art-deco-inspired “manchette” featured a cambered rectangular case created to follow the contours of a woman’s wrist. Historically, the range (references 4910/10A) offered a choice of three colours, “Forever Black”, “Eternal Grey” and “Timeless White”.
Since the collection’s inception 21 years ago, it has become one of Patek Philippe’s best sellers and has gone on to embody various dial colours, metal types and embellishments. It has also inspired the expansion of further feminine collections including the Calatravas, the Grand Complications and, of course, the Twenty~4 Automatic.
The latest reinterpretations of the classic Twenty~4 collection boast an exceptional aesthetic evolution. Roman numerals give way to white gold applied Arabic numerals (12 and 6) and the diamond hour markers have been to trapeze-shaped hour markers, offering a new modern face for 2020. The collection offers two dial options, either decorated with a blue sunburst (4910/1200A-001) or a grey sunburst enhanced by a gradation out to black (4910/1200A-010).
With beauty comes the perfect performance synonymous with the brand. The Patek Philippe calibre E15 quartz movement is made with the same devotion to fine workmanship as the manufacture’s mechanical movements. In today’s busy environment, the Patek Philippe Twenty~4 offers exceptional, versatile beauty; a watch that can be proudly worn day or night, accompanying the modern, empowered woman in her active life. Who she will be in the next 24 hours is entirely up to her, with the help of an exceptional timepiece on her wrist.
