Gemsetting Artistry at its Best
When it comes to gem-setting, the ladies’ Ref. 4899 Haute Joaillerie wristwatch is an impressive manifestation of Patek Philippe’s ability to meld gem-setting and watchmaking artistry. This white-gold case from Patek Philippe sets an ideal stage for the precious stone settings with several staggered rows composed of 149 flawless Top Wesselton brilliant-cut diamonds that alternate with 182 brilliant-cut rose sapphires with varying color intensities along the periphery. Needless to say, all the gems are mechanically set by master jewelers as specified by the directives of the Patek Philippe Seal. This watch combines finesse with the graceful elegance caliber 240 movement that celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.
