Considered one of the most precious and most luxurious metals in the world, platinum is used by only the finest watchmakers in the world – Patek Philippe included. The beautifully glistening, lustrous shade of platinum is desired by serious watch collectors across the globe.

To others the metal may be harder to identify, meaning that collectors of watches made from this material are enjoying their own little secret. Platinum Patek Philippe watches have many advantages, like their hypoallergenic properties along with their density. Such qualities combined make watches crafted from this material incredibly comfortable to wear for hours upon the wrist without any allergic reaction to the skin.
