The Twenty~4 collection is loved worldwide for its sophisticated and feminine design, as well as its versatility. As the name suggests, it was designed to be worn 24 hours a day and can take today’s modern woman from the boardroom to a fabulous dinner, without having to change her watch. The original model has a sleek, jewelry-inspired look, while the newer Twenty~4 Automatic timepieces, released in 2018, have a round case and a sportier feel. Today, Patek Philippe releases three beautiful new dial colors in the collection.
The original timepiece, Twenty~4 Reference 4910, has the original manchette (cuff) design with a rectangular case. The case has a unique two-tiered shape, and two columns of Top Wesselton Pure diamonds line the sides of the case. The new dial is a rich chocolate-brown, which perfectly complements the polished 18K rose gold case and bracelet. It is powered by a quartz movement, which at Patek Philippe is finished with the same level of craftsmanship as its mechanical movements.
The Twenty~4 Automatic Reference 7300, first released three years ago, has two new models: a rose gold version with a stunning rose-gold sunburst dial and a steel watch with a brand-new olive-green dial. The pairing of a rose-gold dial with a rose-gold case and bracelet is quite beautiful, and glamorous without being over the top. Olive-green is a unique color for Patek Philippe, whose dials are generally more traditional, and is sure to be a hit due to its distinctive look. Paired with a steel case and bracelet, it is sporty but still refined. Both timepieces have diamond-set bezels—160 Top Wesselton Pure diamonds are set in a dentelle pattern, which mimics the finest lacework, with two staggered rows of diamonds.
Each has applied 18K gold Arabic numerals, hour markers, and hour and minute hands coated with SuperLuminova for extra visibility; a sweeping seconds hand; and a discreet date aperture at 6 o’clock. The Twenty~4 Automatic is powered by Caliber 324 S C, which is visible through the sapphire caseback. It has a minimum 35-hour power reserve and is water-resistant to 30m. The watches are fully hand polished for a beautiful shine and the bracelet has a new patented fold-over clasp with four independent catches for extra security. The additional catches prevent one half of the bracelet from accidentally opening.
