Famed for their intensely luxurious eye for detail and unparalleled heritage within the watchmaking industry, Patek Philippe has long been at the top of the horology pyramid. While their modern plaudits come from their infamously desirable wristwatches, the brand began life creating pocket watches, much like other watchmakers that began life during the 19th century and before. As such, it is pocket watches, like the example we have here draws attention to Patek Philippe’s original legendary aesthetic and unwavering level of craftsmanship. Featuring an 18kt rose gold construction, a stunning salmon dial with applied gold indices and Roman numerals alongside beautiful baton hands, crisp black inscriptions and a sub-seconds dial with a bright concentric guilloche engraving, this example’s display is a classily executed embodiment of style and decorum. Featuring a polished domed bezel and mid-case that wraps around and meets its caseback, this pocket watch is a stunning example of why Patek Philippe has been widely regarded as one of horology’s best watchmakers for centuries now - a reputation that they certainly have earned and will not lose any time soon judging by their constantly improving product line and back-log of truly iconic designs.
