Ded­i­cated to New York

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Trends -

AS a high­light to The Art Of Watches Grand Ex­hi­bi­tion New York 2017, Patek Philippe cre­ated nine lim­ited spe­cial edi­tions of men’s and women’s watches. They are dec­o­rated with mo­tifs ded­i­cated to the city of New York and the United States.

Mak­ing its de­but at The Art Of Watches, World Time Minute Re­peater Ref. 5531 is the first Patek Philippe watch that unites two com­pli­ca­tions: a minute re­peater and the World Time func­tion. It con­sists of two five watch ver­sions – five with the “New York by Day” dial and five with the “New York by Night” dial.

Patek Philippe’s fa­mous World Time func­tion also takes cen­tre stage in Men’s World Time Ref. 5230. It has a white gold case with a smooth, cham­fered bezel and a dial with an opa­line blue cen­tre; its em­bossed mo­tif de­picts the same Man­hat­tan sky­line that adorns Ref. 5531.

For women, an ideal travel com­pan­ion is Ladies’ World Time Ref. 7130. It is avail­able in two 75-time­piece edi­tions, one in white gold, the other in rose gold.

Cased in steel, Men’s Cala­trava Pi­lot wrist­watch Ref. 5522 fea­tures a dial rem­i­nis­cent of vin­tage Patek Philippe avi­a­tor time­pieces. Its blue colour re­calls the liv­ery of Amer­i­can fighter planes in the 1930s while the brown calf­skin strap with con­trast stitch­ing was in­spired by har­nesses paired with clas­sic flight suits.

Other spe­cial edi­tions in­clude Ladies’ Cala­trava Ref. 7200/50 and Ladies’ Minute Re­peater Ref. 7000/250.

Patek Philippe also cre­ated a collection of 17 rare hand­craft pieces – dome ta­ble clocks, pocket watches and wrist­watches – that pay trib­ute to the Big Ap­ple and the United States.
