Designed to share the lives of modern active women, the Twenty~4 collection by Patek Philippe was launched in 1999 as a timepiece suited to all 24 hours of the day. Ever since they have enamoured women all over the world with their timeless elegance and everyday functionality.
As the life of 21st-century women has grown in complexity and reach, so has their need for a watch that could follow their pace. Patek Philippe answered this need with the Twenty~4, a stylish companion for the life of busy women at any time of day or night.
The inspiration for the original manchette (cuff design) can be found in the aesthetics of Art-Deco. It features a cambered rectangular case in steel or rose gold with two rows of diamonds. Available in various hues, the dials of the steel models are graced with the applied Arabic numerals 12 and 6 as well as trapezoidal markers in white gold. The rose gold watches have Roman numerals and diamond markers. The polished metal bracelet is secured with a fold-over clasp.
Original Twenty~4 Ref. 4910/10A with “Forever Black” dial, one of the three options available at the time of its launch in 1999.
In 2018, the collection was completed by the Twenty~4 Automatic with a round case and a self-winding mechanical movement. Also available in steel or rose gold, the automatic models boast a round case and gold Arabic numerals on the dial while they keep the same bracelet. One of the rose gold models is set with diamonds on the crown, lugs and outer links of the bracelet. The collection was complemented with a high jewellery model adorned with a full random-set pavé.
Here depicted in rose gold with diamond-set bezel, the first Twenty~4 Automatic collection was available in five different models.
The manufacture is continuing the renewal of the collection in 2021, with three new models that keep the Twenty~4 fresh and relevant to today’s woman.
Twenty~4 Reference 4910/1201R-001 adds to the cuff-style range (quartz movement). The combination of rose gold and the chocolate-brown sunburst dial brings warmth a refinement to the female wrist. Two vertical rows of seventeen Top Wesselton Pure diamonds highlight the distinctive two-tier shape of the case. The clean layout of the dial showcases the applied Arabic numerals, trapeze-shaped hour-markers and rounded baton-style hands, all in rose gold with Superluminova. A Calatrava cross decorates the crown. The bracelet with fold-over clasp feels smooth and cossetting on the wrist.
The first of the new automatic models, Reference 7300/1200A-011, stands out by its understated elegance, a combination of steel adorned with an olive green sunburst dial – a colour new to the contemporary palette of Patek. The white gold Arabic numerals and hands are also treated with Superluminova to guarantee easy reading under any conditions. The date aperture at 6 o’clock is fitted with a white gold frame. The circle of the case is set with 160 diamonds in two staggered rows following the lacework technique. If you are into detail, you can admire and appreciate the exquisite hand-finish and decoration lavished on the calibre 324 S C self-winding movement through its transparent caseback. The polished-steel bracelet features a new fold-over clasp secured by four independent catches.
Reference 7300/1200R-011 completes the trio of novelties introduced into the collection. A twin to the steel version, this new Twenty~4 Automatic is sculpted in rose gold, extending the warm sheen of its case to a dial gilded with a rose gold sunburst and to hour and minute hands, applied Arabic numerals and the frame of the date aperture all fashioned in the same precious metal.
The rose gold sunburst dial adds to the overall warmth and style of Ref. 7300/1200R-011.
These three new expressions of the Twenty~4 bring beauty to every instant of daily life with their assertive personality and impeccable design; watches that celebrate every precious moment of life.
