Patek Philippe for the Ladies

There are countless of luxury watches that suit any man’s lifestyle – from business to sports – and a man’s decision on a timepiece is dependent on his way of life.

For a woman, it is an entirely different story. Luxury watches are not dependent on her lifestyle. They are as precious and as valuable as her diamonds. For her, luxury watches are accessories that instantly add class and elegance to her style.

Though much has been said and written about Patek Philippe men’s watches, this world-renowned watchmaker from the apex of Swiss watch making industry has never forgotten all about the ladies.
Take for example the Patek Philippe Twenty~4 ladies watch. It is a watch meticulously designed for the active yet refined contemporary woman. The Patek Philippe Twenty~4 watch accompanies a woman through every style and occasion – from high-fashion daywear to an elegant evening dress. From the case, bezel, and/or bracelet adorned with the fiery magnificence of Top Wesselton diamonds, down to the crown studded with an onyx or diamond solitaire, the Patek Philippe Twenty~4 watch is a work of art embodied in a timepiece. The subtly curved silhouette of the case embraces the delicate feminine wrist tenderly, reflecting perfection in its craftsmanship.
Patek Philippe has done it again – outdoing itself in every meticulously created timepiece. A Patek Philippe watch becomes an extension of the lady herself, instantaneously adding charisma and grace to her already elegant style. For whatever gender, Patek Philippe always carries with it a commemorative and lasting value.
True luxury begins online. Chong Hing Jewelers carries the Patek Philippe Twenty~4 ladies watch, other Patek classics, as well as other luxury watch brands.

Patek Philippe Through History

Although they can admittedly be a bit lavish and extravagant, those same qualities are part of what make up the glamour of a Patek Philippe watch. Each Patek Philippe watch is a masterpiece; a legendary craft enlightened by a rich history and advanced watch-making technology. Because of the unique charisma a Patek Philippe carries, they have been and still are the timepiece of choice for many of history’s most notable figures.
As far back as 1851, the Patek Philippe Company held a close relationship with Queen Victoria and began to supply luxury watches to both her and the royal court. This gesture set ablaze the fervor for Patek Philippe timepieces in European roylty. Since then, the exquisite timepieces from this Geneva-based manufacturer have been a symbol of dignity and royalty, making a Patek Philippe watch almost a necessity.
Other notable people in history whose wrists have been adorned by a Patek Philippe watch include Pope Pius IX, the King and Queen Christian IX and Louise of Denmark, the king of Italy, the Duke of Savoy Victor-Emanuel III, and the Sultan of Egypt Hussein Kamel.
Today, a Patek Philippe watch is the top choice for collectors, luxury watch enthusiasts, and remains so for many prominent figures. Among the famous people who have been spotted with a discriminating Patek Philippe timepiece are Vladimir Putin of Russia, King Juan Carlos of Spain, Prince Charles of Wales, and Hollywood celebrities like Michael Douglas and Nicholas Cage.
A Patek Philippe watch is truly in a league of its own. Valuable because of their lasting value, they are remarkable timepieces that provide extreme loyalty, not only from past owners to present ones, but to future owners as well.
