Patek Philippe Unveils a Legacy of Innovation and Elegance at Watches and Wonders Geneva 2024

Patek Philippe proudly unveiled a collection of exquisite new timepieces at the prestigious Watches and Wonders Geneva 2024 exhibition. This year's introductions showcase the manufacture's unwavering commitment to technical prowess and timeless design, a tradition established by founders Antoine Norbert de Patek and Jean Adrien Philippe in 1839.


A World-First: the first World Time watch to feature a date display synchronized with local time

A highlight of the new collection is a groundbreaking innovation in the realm of travel watches. The new-generation World Time Reference 5330G-001 boasts a world-first complication: a date display synchronised with local time. This feat of engineering is made possible by a new self-winding calibre, the 240 HU C, featuring a patented differential system.


The Return of the Legendary Golden Ellipse with a New Chain-Style Bracelet

The iconic Golden Ellipse, instantly recognisable for its unique case shape, makes a triumphant return. Reference 5738/1R-001 features a stunning new chain-style bracelet crafted from rose gold. This meticulously designed bracelet seamlessly integrates with the case for exceptional comfort and complements the watch's inherent elegance.


Refined Variations on Beloved Travel Watches

Patek Philippe continues its legacy of crafting exceptional travel watches. Three new models were debuted, each offering a distinct expression of refined functionality.

  • The Alarm Travel Time Reference 5520RG-001 in rose gold presents a captivating two-tone aesthetic with a grey sunburst dial and charcoal-grey accents.
  • The Aquanaut Travel Time Reference 5164G-001 in white gold features a blue-grey opaline dial and matching integrated strap, exuding modern, casual chic.
  • A new version of the Aquanaut Travel Time, Reference 5269R-001, with a quartz movement arrives in rose gold, featuring a blue-grey opaline dial and a matching composite strap.


New Faces Among the Calendar Watches

Patek Philippe expands its renowned calendar watch collection with several captivating additions.

  • A reinterpretation of the 2021 in-line perpetual calendar with a rose-gilt opaline dial and charcoal-grey white gold hands Reference 5236P-010 joins the regular collection
  • The Officer’s style perpetual calendar with a retrograde date hand is reimagined in rose gold with a silvery opaline gold dial and blackened white gold Breguet numerals, Rare Handcrafts Retrograde Perpetual Calendar Reference 5160/500R-001.
  • The highly coveted Annual Calendar Reference 5396G-017 receives a refresh with a blue sunburst dial and a black gradient rim adorned with twelve baguette-cut diamond hour markers.


New versions of timeless feminine elegance and sporty style

Patek Philippe celebrates the 25th anniversary of its Twenty~4 collection, dedicated to feminine sophistication with a new version of the “manchette” model in rose gold, Reference 4910/1201R-010 featuring a captivating purple lacquered dial with a wave motif.

The Nautilus self-winding flyback chronograph Reference 5980/60G-001 is reimagined in white gold with a blue-grey opaline dial and white gold hands. The watch comes with two interchangeable straps, one in blue-grey calfskin and another in a composite material presenting a fabric motif.


Exquisite Haute Joaillerie

The Aquanaut Luce Haute Joaillerie Reference 5268/461G-001 showcases Patek Philippe's mastery of gem-setting. White gold adorned with diamonds and blue sapphires creates a breathtaking display of sparkle.

A Rich Collection of Rare Handcrafts
