A Patek Philippe Watch: Perfect Craftsmanship, Precision Design

Think exquisite craftsmanship from a revered watchmaker and you’re likely thinking of Patek Philippe. A name linked with the highest in watch luxury since 1839. Located in the beautiful Canton of Geneva, Switzerland, the Genevan luxury watch manufacturer is known for producing some of the world’s most finely crafted watches. Its collections include the Nautilus, Aquanaut and Calatrava and feature some of the most sought after watches in the world.

The Patek Philippe Nautilus Steel Sports Watch, now discontinued, was one of the most desirable steel luxury sports and commanded an average wait time of 10 years. Since then Patek Philippe continues to produce some of the finest watches on the market. Here’s a look at some of the best watches from Patek Philippe Nautilus, Patek Philippe Aquanaut and Patek Philippe Calatrava collections.

Patek Philippe Aquanaut

First launched in 1997, the Patek Philippe Aquanaut collection is a modern, sporty and chic series of watches for both men and women. Becoming an instant sensation in the watch world for its younger feel, the Aquanaut features a rounded octagon case inspired by its Nautilus cousin. The Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce is arguably the stand out style. The athletic design remains as luxurious as ever with the inclusion of a new strap made of ultra-resistant materials for salt water and UV radiation protection.
