Sell All Patek Philippe Watch Models

 

Patek Philippe is one of the last, great, family-owned Swiss watchmaking master brands. Driven by the desire to push the boundaries of chronology, the Patek Philippe split second chronograph is a highly sophisticated piece of timekeeping technology. A ‘complication’, the split-second timer controls two chronograph hands; one of which can be stopped to measure time – say a lap time – while the other hand continues to record time passing. When the paused hand is released, it instantly catches up with the first hand and the two hands move in tandem again. Patek Philippe’s split-second chronographs are in high demand and so attract high valuations.

Sell Your Patek Philippe Nautilus

Owing to its design to the late, great Gerald Genta, by whom it is rumoured sketched the design on a napkin, Patek Philippe introduced the Nautilus ref: 3700/1 in 1976.

A model dramatically different from any other Pateks available at the time, the prestigious company’s first attempt at a sports model received much attention and much acclaim. Patek Philippe had managed to find the balance between sport and elegance perfectly.

One of the thinnest sports models ever produced up to this time, thanks to its ultra-thin JLC calibrate 920 movement, the new Nautilus was at the same time a very large watch for the time with a case diameter of 42mm.

The Nautilus model remained of simple design until 1998 when the first model offering more than a date complication was introduced.(ref: 3710) Although only the addition of a winding indicator was not particularly exciting, it paved the way for the introduction of the ref: 3712 in 2005. A triple complication movement including power reserve and moon phase. The 3712 took the Nautilus range to a whole new level, including the introduction of the first chronograph introduced just a year later in 2006.

The consistent styling of the Calatrava model over the last 90 years, although continuing to advance on its own design, manages to transcend modern trends, refusing to let contemporary watch designs affect its classic appearance. Varying between time only versions, such as the Calatrava such as the 5196, some versions feature a date function such as the 5127 range.

Sell Your Patek Philippe Calatrava

Launched in 1932 and arguably the most recognisable, Patek Philippe’s signature collection of watches is the Calatrava. The elegant and understated models in this longstanding production directly reflect the sophistication and style of the Patek Philippe brand. The inspiration for the collection was the German rooted ‘Bauhaus Art Movement’ which originated in the 1900s, Bauhaus translating as ‘School of Building’.

Sell Your Patek Philippe Aquanaut

It’s tough being in competition with a watch that comes from your own stable, yet that’s exactly the position that the Aquanaut finds itself. Considered by some to stand in the shadow of the Nautilus, the Aquanaut has chosen its 20th birthday to demand its time in the sun.

Utilising two of the key innovations designed by Patek Phillippe’s Advanced Research team, the Aquanaut boasts a new balance spring with vastly improved time-keeping precision and flexible mechanisms which reduce the number of parts required and so delivering a thinner watch.

Also, released in April 2017, the Aquanaut Ref 5168G is the first men’s Aquanaut watch in white gold.

Launched in 1997, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut was designed to bridge the gap between a technical, sports watch and an elegant timepiece that you can wear with an evening dress. The Aquanaut is contemporary in design with a rounded octagonal shape that sets it aside from other watches. The texture of the strap is captured in the dial’s surface while the Aquanaut’s casual elegance is highlighted by a screw-down crown that gives extra protection when worn by sports people.

Sell Your Patek Philippe Grand Complications

When you’ve been making stunning timepieces for as long as Patek Phillipe has, you get the urge to push the boundaries of precision. That’s exactly what the watch brand did when they created the Grand Complication. They also broke the mould.

With such precision at the core of the Complication, it’s staggering to see the layers of confusion and mystery that surround its origins. The very first grand complication was ordered in 1910, with a second commissioned in 1916 by James Ward Packard. However, the discovery of a further Grand Complication in 2013 owned by Stephen S. Palmer Patek Philippe takes the top spot as the earliest grand complication.

The Palmer Grand Complication has a Patek calibre, a minute repeating perpetual calendar split-seconds chronograph clock watch with grande and petite sonnerie as well as moon phases. While this is exceptional by any standards, it’s critical to understand that this watch was made in the late 1800s. Without access to any of the modern CAD, CNC machines and modelling tools at watchmaker’s disposal, this Grand Complication is utterly amazing – and no one knew about it until it popped up for auction at Christie’s in 2013.

The watch was totally pristine, untouched and in its original condition. Alongside the piece itself comes the paperwork, including all of the original warranty documents, and the records of Mr Palmer’s stay at the Beau Rivage Hotel in Geneva while there to receive his watch. The operating instructions that Mr Palmer left for his family are also there and the watch remained within the Palmer family for many generations. Incredibly, Mr Palmer bought three watches on this same day, including the Grand Complication at 6000 Swiss Francs, trading one watch on exchange.

The Palmer Grand Complication is the only early model in pink gold, rather than the later yellow gold used. Although it was anticipated that the watch would fetch between $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 at auction in 2013, the Palmer Grand Complication eventually took $2,250,000.

 

Sell Your Patek Philippe Twenty-4

On the surface, it may seem like the Patek Philippe Twenty-4 is a world away from the roaring Brazil of 1920s and 30s. However, the Twenty-4 and the fabulously famous Gondolo Gang were forever linked when the Twenty-4 drew inspiration from the 1993 Patek Philippe Gondolo wristwatch model, that had been so popular in Brazil.

With such clear links to the past, it’s no surprise that the Twenty-4 takes design inspiration from the Art Deco period. The Art Deco era took its name from the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels which was held in Paris in 1925. Bringing together modernist styles with craftsmanship and oppulent materials, Art Deco represented a luxurious and glamourous lifestyle, bursting with exuberance and a new hope in technology.

Art Deco draws on many different concepts – the geometric forms of Cubism, the bright colours of Fauvism, updated ideas based on the eras of Louis Philippe and Louis XVI and the exotic styles of China, Japan, India, Persia and ancient Egypt. The Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building are both examples of the Art Deco style, while the Strand Hotel and the Shell Building, near London Waterloo are stunning London examples.

The Art Deco Story is critical to the Twenty-4 as its influence is so clearly evident with in both the design and the materials used in the watches’ production. With a very defined and geometric oblong design, the face of the watch is shouldered by a functional casement. However, where the Patek Philippe truly excels is the dramatic way in which the watchmaker softens the Twenty-4 into a piece of sublime beauty – on two very different levels…

The Patek Philippe Twenty-4 uses elegant beauty of diamonds to offset any Cubist influence and leave the wearer with a stunning wristwatch that can be worn for both formal and casual occasions but is comfortable and practical enough to be worn around the clock. Launched in 1999, the Twenty-4 features a diamond set face and also comes in a range of metals, including cool steel, 18ct gold in both rose and white.

Not content with developing a gorgeous line of watches, Patek Philippe introduced a range of jewellery to complement Twenty-4 wristwatches to ensure that you can change up your watch and jewellery to match the occasion.

The Twenty-4 range has a matching set of rings and diamond set earrings that add a touch of emphasis to any outfit.
