A watch designed for all those in love with Swiss watchmaking
In this post we want to show you the “Great Complications” collection of Patek Philippe, a superb collection of watches that has been the flagship of the Swiss brand during 2019. All models are characterized by their mechanics, declared by experts as the most complicated in the world. We are facing pieces that are considered authentic jewels within the art of Swiss watchmaking.
For Patek Philippe, complications are all additional functions to what would be the display of the hours on their watches: annual calendars, double time zones, universal time…
They are pieces that are defined by concepts such as superlative luxury, the virtuosity of the best watchmakers on the planet and a classic but perfect aesthetic. Basically, excellence converted into a watch.
Watches of an eternal value and a peerless virtuosity
That defines the Patek Philippe watch. If we take any piece from its “Great Complications” collection, we will see that all we comment is perfectly fulfilled. For example, if you look at one of the flagships of this collection, the 5159J model, we will find a watch with a mechanical movement and automatic loading, opaline dial, sapphire crystal and yellow, white or yellow gold case. Something tremendously exceptional and exclusive.
Of course, all watches are handmade, completely handmade, by those who are considered the best watchmakers in the world.
But this is a manufacturer that can also make custom watches, something very “trendy” among celebrities and the upper classes of society. For example, the American rapper Drake, in early January of this same year, ordered the brand to make a Patek Philippe covered in emeralds and designed by Virgil Abloh, a designer of international renown, creative director of Louis Vuitton.
