Almost two decades after its launch, the Patek Philippe Twenty~4® collection designed to accompany women 24/7, welcomes its first self-winding movement in a round case. Graced with bezels hand-set in a two-row configuration of offset stones known as ‘Dentelle’ (lace-setting), they make a perfect match with the line’s typical bracelets thanks to a carefully designed subtle feature : the design of the central links extends all the way to the edge of the dials, at 6 and 12 o’clock. The time is displayed with great clarity by round-ended batontype hands and applied Arabic numerals, all luminescent, against different colored backgrounds graced with a traditional sunburst finish or an innovative double vertical and horizontal satin finish reminiscent of the texture of wild Shantung silk. The Twenty~4® Automatic models are naturally driven by movements entirely compliant with the Patek Philippe Seal quality criteria, which can be admired through sapphire crystal casebacks. Unveiled in October 2018 at an international event organized in Milan, they come in five versions : two in stainless steel and two in rose gold with gemset bezel, along with an even more sophisticated rose gold model adorned with diamonds on the bezel, bracelet and crown.
