Patek Philippe has still got it. The Swiss watchmaker is unmatched when it comes to churning out high-end timepiece of peerless quality and, for 2023, Patek Philippe is really flexing its timepiece muscles.
At 2023's Watches & Wonders convention, Patek Philippe unveiled a fresh slate of statement timepieces full of new models and refreshed classics alike.
Below, we're walking through each new Patek Philippe innovation to explore all of the exciting developments.
Patek Philippe 6300GR
Here, what Patek Philippe describes as its "most complicated wristwatch" is unveiled in a striking white and rose gold iteration, a two-tone design accented by brown opaline dials that's only made extra appealing by a matching Calatrava cross and hand-guilloched hobnail pattern.
Patek Philippe 6300/403G
Studded with nearly 120 emeralds and over 290 diamonds (over 20 carats), Patek Phillipe's 6300 has never been more exquisitely opulent. According to Patek Philippe, this watch appropriately represents "a new alliance between Haute Horlogerie and Haute Joaillerie."
Patek Philippe 5316/50P
Patek Philippe's Grand Complication Reference 5316 now wears a platinum case and blue sapphire crystal dial with a rim of black gradient, boasting "a minute-repeater, a tourbillon and a perpetual calendar with retrograde date display and moon-phase indication" that Patek Philippe describes as "five of the most sought-after complications among connoisseurs."
Patek Philippe 5531G
Fitted with a dial center graced by an enamel cloisonné of the Grand Feu steamship, the Patek Philippe 5531G is the latest in Patek Philippe's hand-made miniature Rare Handcrafts timepiece line, which debuted in 2017. Skeletonized lugs grant full view of the special watch.
Patek Philippe 5178G
A hand-guilloched pattern graces the flinqué blue Grand Feu enamel dial of the new Patek Philippe Minute Repeater Reference 5178, complemented by a translucent enamel and white gold dial plate, made extra indulgent by two interchangable alligator leather straps.
Patek Philippe 5905R
The self-winding Patek Philippe 5905R chronograph is a hybrid of two previous Patek Philippe complications. More rose gold here, this time highlighting the watch's concave bezel and hollowed flanks.
Patek Philippe 5924G
Behold Patek Philippe's first Pilot style chronograph timepiece, a self-winding watch that boasts Travel Time capabilities and date indication by hand. Should the slick grey iteration prove too classic for your tastes, the Patek Philippe 5924G is also available as Reference 5924G-001, a plush white gold iteration.
Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5261R
Patek Philippe adds to its Aquanaut Luce women's collection with another handsome offering, this time free of gems so as to emphasize the “sporty chic" design cues, as Patek Philippe itself says. Polished rose gold provides a sleek offset to the satin-brushed finish elsewhere.
Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5268/200R
A gracious dose of taupe gives yet another water-resistant Patek Philippe Aquanaut Luce watch a different perspective, retaining the rose gold touch that continues throughout the seasonal collection.
Patek Philippe Aquanaut 5268/200R
More rose gold here, as Patek Philippe's Aquanaut 5268/200R makes the most of its glitzy exterior by way of rich sunburst brown, sporting a self-winding flyback chronograph movement that features both classic column wheel drive and a spiffy new vertical disk clutch.
Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5224R-001
A gorgeous Patek Philippe standard just got better in handsome navy, with 44 hand-polished rose gold appliques on the face to denote the time in high-vis style.
Also on tap for the 2023 Calatrava Ref. 5224R-001: a new 24-hour mechanism, Travel Time mechanism, and a stunning platinum self-winding caliber 31-260 PS FUS 24H movement with mini-rotor, visible through the transparent sapphire caseback.
Patek Philippe Calatrava 6007G
Available in a smattering of white gold styles, the Patek Philippe Calatrava 6007G evolves the series with ebony dials and embossed "carbon" pattern available with accents in yellow, red, or sky blue, depending on the Reference.
Patek Philippe Calatrava 4997/200R
Designed for women, the Patek Philippe Calatrava 4997/200R is available in a warm purple hue, offset by the shade of the season: rose gold. The flashy exterior obscures the incredible handiwork on the watch's face, which sees over "fifty successive layers of translucent lacquer" layered atop each other to create a concentric wave with real depth.
Patek Philippe Gondolo 4962/200R
Patek Philipple's jewelry watches are no less functional than its classic fare but timepieces like the Gondolo 4962/200R are all about flash. Witness the 94 brilliant-cut spessartites arranged around the face in exquisite gradient tones, the floral-patterned dial, and stylized indices, all achieving maximum flair.
