There is something extra special about Patek Phillipe’s collection of manually wound watches. Whether you are looking to become more connected with the Genevan-based company’s heritage and their iconic watchmaking philosophy, or simply in search of a timepiece powered by an intricately crafted engine, assembled by the hands of some of the world's most talented artisans – Patek Phillipe’s manual winding watches collection is steeped in artistry and grandeur. You only need to take a look at the back of one of these manually wound watches to appreciate the complex craftsmanship gone into each design. These timekeeping instruments are executed to such high standards, that even though no two timepieces are made the same, reliability and precision are two values that run consistently throughout the Patek Phillipe universe. There are many benefits to be enjoyed in a manual winding Patek Phillipe watch. The assembly of the components of an in-house manufactured manual winding movement differ to that of a self winding movement – the latter of which will always obscure some of the movement through the caseback. A manual winding movement however, will grant visual access to the gears, screws, bridges and other machinery involved in the performance of the movement.
As an official stockist of manual winding Patek Phillipe watches here at Berry’s, we understand the importance of being able to offer a large variety of different designs and styles. Luckily for Patek Phillipe, various watches made with manual winding calibres are incredibly popular, so our collection is able to reflect this with a number of watches finished in various materials for wearing with all kinds of attire and all kinds of lady's or gent's jewellery. Choose from designs from Patek Phillipe’s various collections like the Calatrava, the Complications line, Grand Complications family and Aquanaut collection to name just a few.
The Patek Phillipe Aquanaut 35mm blue/grey dial is an instrument that promotes easy time reading, thanks to its classically simple blue horizontal decorated dial. Gold applied markers keep in line with the luxurious fee of the dial – the finish on the hands and hour markers complimenting the 35mm stainless steel bezel adorned with a total of 46 individually hand assembled round brilliant cut diamonds. The casing of the watch is also impressive, with its 120 meter water resistant shell to provide the very best protection to the heart of the movement, as well as to protect the dial from moisture, temperature changes and pressure change.
The Patek Phillipe Calatrava 36mm 18ct Rose Gold Manual Winding Men’s watch combines vintage-inspired aesthetics with a classic white dial. The traditional Roman numerals marked out in a crisp black hue are delicate and easy to reference the time from. They match the slender physique of the black central hands, and the “Patek Phillipe Geneve” lettering at the centre of the dial. A small seconds counter adds a practical beauty to the timepiece – perfect for those gentlemen who like an alternative way of reading the time. The 215 PS movement which consists of 130 individual parts, is a powerful engine that works seamlessly to provide an impressive 48 hour power reserve. The watch is, without a doubt, an elegant and sophisticated timepiece to enjoy every day of the week.
