In October 2018, Patek Philippe unveiled a completely new ladies’ watch: the Twenty~4 Automatic, with a self-winding mechanical movement and a round case. This model designed to accompany the modern active woman was offered in steel or rose gold with a diamond-set bezel and various dial colors – along with a more formal version in rose gold with a diamond-set bezel, crown and bracelet.
The manufacture now presents this model of timeless elegance in a rose-gold Haute Joaillerie version that celebrates the beauty of the design by dressing it entirely in diamonds. The dial, bezel, crown and bracelet are paved with some 3,238 diamonds (about 17.21 ct) presented in a “random” or “snow” setting.
For this demanding technique, the gem-setter combines diamonds of different diameters in such a way as to leave the least possible gold surface between the stones. The result is a shimmering radiance that is unique to that watch and makes it one of a kind. In compliance with the criteria of the Patek Philippe Seal, all the diamonds are of Top Wesselton Pure quality and impeccable cut.
The 18K gold dial is endowed with rose-gold applied Arabic numerals and baton-style rose-gold hands with a luminescent coating for perfect legibility. A gently cambered sapphire crystal prolongs the curves of the case.
Within this precious case beats Patek Philippe’s caliber 324 S self-winding movement, noted for the detailed beauty of its finish. Decorative techniques such as chamfered, polished edges and Geneva stripe decoration may be admired through the sapphire-crystal case back.
The exclusive bracelet has broad, gently cambered central links framed by narrow two-tier links. It is fastened by a patented fold-over clasp, whose four independent catches optimize opening and closing for greater security.
