Elegant precision: The Twenty-4 Collection is dedicated to the young, active and modern woman

Launched in 1999, the Twenty-4 collection marked the beginning of the era of Patek Philippe’s contemporary women’s watches, representing the Swiss brand’s first diamond-set steel model. The inspiration behind the creation of the new Twenty-4 Automatic model comes from some aesthetic codes associated with this famous classic collection.

Featuring a completely different format from the originals, appearing with a round 36mm-diameter case (the first models were rectangular) and 10.1mm thick, this reference is based on an elegant architecture, with lines that are both striking yet subtle. With a bezel set with 160 diamonds, it has a grey dial with a gradient that extends from the rim.

It is in the bracelet that we can see a glimpse of the inspiration from the first collection created two decades ago, reflected in its wide central links, slightly curved and framed by a delicate two-tier outside link with a polished mirror. Also noteworthy is the new patented folding clasp with a system of four independent fastening points that provides security during opening and closing, preventing the bracelet from open­ing accidentally.

For this model, the Geneva house chose the self-winding caliber 324 S C with Spiromax® spiral in Silinvar®, the highest exponent of precision and reliability, visible through the transparent sapphire case back.

With water-resistance up to 30 metres and a power reserve of up to 45 hours, the Twenty-4 Automatic underlines the brand’s tradition of excellence, combining details and finishes of great refinement.
