Patek Philippe's one of the best-selling collection gets a fresh and mechanical makeover.
We all know and adore the Twenty-4 main women's collection of Patek Philippe. Launched in 1999, it is known for its unique rectangular design and shiny articulated bracelet and was, without doubt, the most popular women's collection of Patek Philippe for many years. But, we all know that one needs to step up with the changing trends and fashion. Keeping this in mind, the makers of this Swiss watch came up with a modernized version of the most loved female watch and it is known as the Twenty-4 Automatic. This watch looks nothing like the original Twenty-4 and has a lot more difference than we can see. Featuring the same shiny articulated bracelet, this time it comes in a much more traditional round case with Arabic numerals and an automatic movement.
Patek Philippe’s iconic Twenty-4 watch modernized version Twenty-4 Automatic is available in five versions in across three references with the power of caliber 324 S C and measures approximately 36 mm in a stainless steel diameter that has shades of grey, blue, rose gold, brown and silver. While this watch is not certainly my mother’s most cherished Twenty-4, but its automatic and has a lot more to offer.
Firstly, the departure in the classic Patek Philippe collection is a long overdue from a quartz movement, especially when the manufacturer has a vast variety of options to choose from. Their choice of caliber 324 S C and round shape makes the watch more wrist friendly and comfortable. However, its Patek Philippe and they perfectly know how to maintain the legacy and tradition which can be seen in its wearability factor and can easily be worn for an entire day, morning or evening, just like the original Twenty-4.
The watch is available in the market at a starting price of $26,083. To know more about the new Twenty-4 automatic, visit PATEK.COM
