The brightness and durability of yellow gold is what has made Patek Philippe watches so popular over the years. Despite the launch of the company's first stainless steel sports watches like the Nautilus, yellow gold was used regularly at Patek Philippe's manufacturing facilities in Geneva, Switzerland. Not only do the company use this precious metal for creating cases, crowns, bezels and buckles, but gold has been used for some of the components of their in-house built movements, to promise the longest possible life. Yellow gold is incredibly slow to tarnish and corrode, making it a popular material to use in watch manufacture at a time when Patek Philippe was establishing itself as a leading creator and supplier of luxury Swiss-made wristwatches and pocket watches the late 1880’s.
Yellow gold Patek Philippe watches take over in popularity from other timepieces made from alternative materials. Not only is the metal functional and beautiful to look at, but it is also timeless, combining effortlessly with other yellow gold ladies jewellery or a sophisticated pair of yellow gold gent's cufflinks on a suit. Many yellow gold Patek Philippe watches are integrated with a sapphire crystal glass back to allow the wearer a chance to appreciate the performance of the regulatory organs that power the very heart of the watch. There are a great many methods and processes involved in the making of a yellow gold Patek Philippe watch. Trained artisans and skilled watchmakers combine their years of knowledge and experience together, to create stunning timepieces that demonstrate a mixture of different materials as well as variety in terms of design and style.
