Spotlight: Patek Philippe

 

 

 

Bearers of the title of Geneva’s oldest, family-owned watch manufacturers, Patek Philippe coined the world-famous slogan: ‘You never actually own a Patek PhilippeYou merely look after it for the next generation.’ And they were right.

For many a watch buyer, this statement is reason enough to invest in a timepiece that will last forever. Thanks to its exceptional know-how, Patek Philippe maintains a tradition of innovation hailed by an impressive repertoire of more than 80 patents.

  • Patek Philippe enjoys total creative freedom to entirely create, produce and assemble their timepieces, thus they have complete control over the quality and freshness of their designs and are able to cater to a wide range of customers.

Although designs vary, the quality of each watch does not; the inspiration behind the women’s ‘Gondolo’ and the ‘Twenty~4’ collections is the Art Deco period (a time renowned for its attention to form and symmetry), thus, one gets the feeling that they do not only own a piece of master craftsmanship, but a work of art.

  • Patek Philippe strives to marry both form and function in its designs and this is perfectly embodied in the ‘Aquanaut’ collection. The ‘Tropical’ strap, made of a high-tech composite, is soft, comfortable, resistant and hypoallergenic which makes it the ideal fit for wearers who come from hot climates such as ours in Malta. Furthermore, the complex construction of the case is underscored by the screw-down crown for extra protection on the wrist of active people. Unlike many other sports watches, it does not compromise on elegance of form, which means that it can be worn from day to night

Although the company invests in innovation with new materials and leading-edge technologies, it continues to preserve the tradition of ancestral watchmaking know-how and uses only the highest quality cool steel, warm rose gold, white gold and diamonds. This, in itself, sets it apart.
