masterpiece of aesthetics – patek philippe

03.28 Patek Philippe, Men's Watch, Luxury (by Denzil Jacobs)

Appropriate to the heritage of Patek Philippe, the Men’s Complications Ref 5170J is not only extremely precise and reliable, but it is also a masterpiece of aesthetics and supreme workmanship. Its physique is devoted to functionality, whilst it is endowed with tangible elegance. This elegant timepiece has an 18K yellow-gold case, an opaline-white dial with slender applied hour markers, as well as yellow-gold applied Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock. The strap is alligator with rectangular scales, hand-stitched in a rich matt chocolate brown, whilst the case back is sapphire-crystal. Not only is this timepiece stylish, but it is also water resistant to 30m.

A ‘complication’ in watchmaking is anything a mechanical watch may do beyond telling the time and the date. Patek Philippe upholds a tradition in complications that are useful in everyday situations, such as annual calendars, dual time zones and world time displays. Patek Philippe prides itself in their knowledge and practice of this pinnacle of the watchmaker’s art.

Patek Philippe is available exclusively at the Watch & Jewellery Gallery in Nelson Mandela Square, Johannesburg, South Africa. For more information, please call 011-784-2595 or visit www.patek.com.
