What your watch says about you: Patek Philippe

John Mayer Patek

"If you see someone who wears a Patek you can confidently assume that this person knows what’s happening in the world at any given time as they’ve been up since 6 studying the Telegraph newspaper and they knew what an ISA was before they were 16. And due to this they will be driving the latest Mercedes or Jaguar and on the weekend it’s the classic Aston Martin."

As of the 1st July 2015 all Rolex watches supplied with a Green Swing Tag (as opposed to a red one) will receive a 5 year International Warranty on their watch. As an addition and perhaps to stifle complaints from relatively recent purchases, all watches dated from 01/07/2013 to 30/06/2015 will receive an additional 1 year extension on top of their current 2 year warranty.

Patek Philippe 5960/1A & 5990/1A

 5960/1A & 5990/1A

 

 

BaselWorld 2014 has so far given us two offerings from Patek Philippe in a year they will be celebrating their 175th Anniversary. We hear d earlier in the year that Patek had “discontinued” quite a few of their chronograph movements, two of which were the 5980 and the 5960. The most surprising watch out of those two that we heard about was the 5960 as it was only at BaselWorld 2013 that Patek released a few more variations of the already magnificent looking watch. Another surprise from the Annual Calendar chronograph came this morning when a Stainless Steel version on a bracelet was announced with a white dial the 5960/1A. Up until now the 5960 had only been executed in precious metals with only Rose Gold and Platinum being the alloys of choice for the magnificent time piece. Early indications show this already is a favourite amongst watch fanatics and with a rough guide price of £33,200 this could be a gap in the market Patek needed to fill compared to their much higher priced precious metal models.

Rolex Milgauss 116400GV Electric Blue

Rolex Milgauss 116400GV Electric Blue

 

Ever had the frustrating time when working on CERN’s Large Hadron Collider or your local Nuclear Reactor and your watch just won’t stop messing around due to the massive increase in Magnetic force playing havoc on the insides of you puny non anti-magnetic watch and just wish you had the foresight to buy a watch that could withstand so much magnetic interference? No me neither but I would imagine it to be an exasperating issue but at least we have Rolex to fall back on for a solution.  In fact they had produced the solution in 1956 in order to help the magnetic issue on mechanical watches that Scientist and engineers were facing at this time. The watch in question that was released was the Rolex Milgauss which was able to resist strong interference of up to 1,000 gauss, hence its name - mille being French for thousand.

Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 116600

Rolex Sea-Dweller 4000 116600

When Rolex released their teaser video to BaselWorld 2014, everyone who viewed the video talked about the fine fluted bezel, the apparent colour of rose gold, the perhaps blatant imagery of the moon and the lack of the Cyclops on the Crystal. What most people did not realise and only a few of the eagle eyed amongst us did, was that there was two watches shown to us on the video however it is the “fluted bezel” watch that is shown for the longer duration of time. The other watch was shown to us first but only a small glimpse, blink and you’ll miss it. The appearance of this watch was fairly thick in size with a flat bezel and again no Cyclops.
