Patek Philippe is all about style. A Patek Philippe watch enhances your appearance, giving you an air of sophistication. You can choose from timeless, traditional timepieces to more innovative, modern watches. The Patek Philippe Aquanaut Collection is chic, modern, and sporty. For young gentlemen, this watch complements their contemporary style. The simple watch face comes in blue, green, and black, with a stainless steel face. If you prefer rose gold or white gold, you can choose between several stunning options.

The octagonal porthole bezel was inspired by the popular Patek Phillip Nautilus. Many models have an innovative strap made of a new composite material, which is resistant to UV-rays, saltwater, and wear and tear, meaning you can enjoy your watch in any weather. However, for a more formal look, the strap also comes with a 3-piece stainless steel link bracelet.

For those who prefer a more traditional, sleek look, the Patek Philippe Calatrava collection is pure elegance. It’s one of the most coveted dress watches on the market with its classic rounded clock face, guilloché bezel, Feuille (leaf) hands, and Roman numerals emphasizing its timeless, traditional design.

Make a Statement

The right luxury watch is not only sleek, elegant, and stunning but will make a statement.

Regardless of the collection you choose, a Patek Philippe watch shows you care about tradition, style, and elegance. Purchasing a Patek Philippe watch supports a family business––the last family-owned watch company in Geneva. If you have one of their watches on your wrist, everyone will know that you support artistry and family.

Support Quality

The high-quality manufacturing process of Patek Philippe is renowned around the world. Since the company started making watches in the 1800s, it has dedicated itself to high-quality, unique products. All watch artists are given an extraordinary amount of creative freedom, resulting in continuous innovation and over 100 patents filed by the company. The company also prides itself on its independence. All the watches are manufactured in company-owned and self-financed buildings, meaning that Patek Philippe never depends on someone else to ensure quality.

Every watch is hand-finished, a painstaking process that ensures the watch functions perfectly, with no small scratches or impediments to its ticking. Patek Philippe also takes the time to create perfectly crafted cases and bracelets, a process that requires nearly 20 specialists for each watch.

Every aspect, from the bracelet to the case, to the Patek Philippe seal, uses the highest quality of materials and is crafted by talented artisans.

Tradition and Innovation

Tradition and innovation are often two opposing forces, but Patek Philippe is a master of both. Watches like the Patek Philippe Calatrava Men’s 5196G-001 have a traditional design in the circular faces and beautiful leather bracelets. However, the inner workings of the watches rely on innovations made by Patek Philippe watchmakers throughout the years. The Complications Collection is another example of combining tradition and innovation. These ingenious watches tell the time and the date while also showing the tradition of quality Patek Philippe is known for.

A gentleman looking for an innovative yet traditional watch might enjoy the Complications 5212A-001, with its stunning sapphire crystal, silver dial, self-winding clock mechanism, smooth leather bracelet, and days of the week display. The stainless steel case resists damage, and the watch is water-resistant up to 30 meters. Every Patek Philippe watch is backed by nearly two centuries of tradition, experience, and innovation. Whatever model you choose, you’ll become a part of that tradition the moment you put your watch on your wrist.
