Luxury Watches. Switzerland 1839

Reference 2456 is one of the first examples of a new stylistic trend that blossomed in the sixties and seventies. The dial is very clean, and the watch is defined instead by the case design. Elaborated cases and minimalistic dials began to appear in the fifties, reaching the apex of their popularity over the following two decades, and then slowly fading over the eighties and nineties. Not only the present piece is a precursor of such an important trend, but it is also offered in astonishing well-preserved condition: . Such a remarkable level of quality allows the beholder to properly appreciate the intended aesthetic impact of the piece. This Patek is made of platinum and it’s dated to 1945 and diamond minute dots and subsidiary minute dial

Patek Philippe has been pursuing traditional Genevan watchmaking artistry without interruption since 1839. The manufacture benefits from full creative freedom, which allows it to design, develop, and craft watches that connoisseurs consider to be the world’s finest – as pledged by its founders Antoine Norbert de Patek and Adrien Philippe. In addition to exceptional skills, Patek Philippe also nurtures a tradition of innovation that has meanwhile been crowned by over one hundred patents.

The Calatrava cross, is the logo of PP and expresses the noblesse that is inherent in its name. Calatrava was the name of a Spanish order of knighthood that was founded in the late 12th century. Its blazonry stands for courage, chivalry, and independence, traits inseparably associated with the knights of the era. These are also traits that Patek Philippe strives to embody.

The company has been owned by the Stern family since 1932 and today is managed by Thierry Stern (President), Philippe Stern (Honorary President), and Claude Peny (CEO). Philippe Stern shaped the history of the manufacture with ambitious real estate projects, the Patek Philippe Museum, and exceptional timekeeping instruments such as the Calibre 89. His son Thierry Stern is committed to safeguarding Patek Philippe’s technological leadership to continuously improve the quality and long-term dependability of its timepieces.
