In Botticelli’s famous painting Primavera, the depiction of the three Graces demonstrates the meaning of beauty in the fifteenth century: inner poise, serenity and gracefulness. These qualities still matter most today but the modern word for them is chic- an intellectual beauty, unswayed by the foibles of fashion and symbolized by style icons including the little black dress and the Patek Philippe Twenty~4 watch for women.
The Patek Philippe Twenty~4 watch was inspired by the elegant, streamlined designs of the art deco era. Introduced in 1999 the Twenty~4 is a modern interpretation of the Gondolo timepiece. The Twenty~4 – ever a girl’s best friend- was created for the refined, active woman of today who seeks a watch that reflects her style and may be worn on all occasions. Each model reflects perfection in craftsmanship and the curved silhouette of the case is a loving caress for the feminine wrist. The Patek Philippe Twenty~4 could be considered as much an essential piece of jewelry as well as a timepiece.
Perfect for every hour of the day or night, worn as easily with jeans as with an evening gown , the Patek Philippe Twenty~4 evokes some of the fascinating women of the twentieth century, radiant creatures surrounded by an aura that has elevated them to the ranks of models for all time, from Marcella Agnelli and Jackie Kennedy to Grace Kelly, who transformed certain accessories into hallmarks of style. Think of the Indian necklace of rubies, gold and emeralds presented to Marcella by her husband Gianni, on their honeymoon. Think of strands of pearls that were the signature of every period of Jackie style from Bouvier to Kennedy or as Mrs. Onassis. Think, finally of grace Kelly’s stylish silk scarves.
In steel or gold, each Patek Philippe Twenty~4 model radiates its own blend of charm and sophistication. The Ladies Twenty~4 watch is available in several different sizes, in three shades of gold as well as a all steel model (Ref. 4910/10A) and various diamond configurations.
