Patek Philippe says it designed the all-new Twenty~4 collection to be the modern woman’s everyday companion. With a sleek, yet complex case that measures a rather noticeable 36mm in diameter and made available exclusively on a three-link bracelet, the Twenty~4 is indeed ready for everyday wear.
Available in stainless steel and solid 18kt rose gold, the Patek Philippe Twenty~4 blends the versatility of a bracelet-equipped luxury timepiece with the eternal appeal of a name like Patek Philippe.
An apparent focus on legibility, plus the addition of a date aperture at the symmetrical six o’clock position further enhance the new Twenty~4’s day-to-day utility, as does the luminescent paint applied on the hour and minute hands and the applied indices.
All variations of the Twenty~4 come with a bevelled bezel set with 160 internally flawless Top Wesselton diamonds — each set individually by hand — beautifully framing the textured dials. A subtle detail in its construction is how the bezel flows into the raised section between the lugs, as though the end-link of the bracelet reached all the way up to the edge of the sapphire crystal on the front.
For those passionate about the inimitable sparkle of diamonds, the top reference in the Twenty~4 collection is adorned with a grand total of 3,238 diamonds in an exceedingly rare “random” or “snow” setting.
