Hettich Jewellers will be hosting the 2018 Patek Philippe Exhibition Collection in Jersey for the first time next month. The showcase will feature close to 100 ladies and men’s watches from the prestigious Geneva based brand, including a selection of new watches revealed at Baselworld this year.
The exhibition will be launched in Jersey at a private event hosted by UBS Wealth Management Jersey at The Atlantic Hotel on 8th November 2018. Hettich, in collaboration with UBS Wealth Management Jersey, are offering guests a rare opportunity to admire first-hand the extensive range of Patek Philippe timepieces.
The collection will later be showcased at Hettich on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th November 2018. Collectors, watch aficionados and those beginning to discover the world of horology are invited to try on the watches, speak to in-house specialists and discover the unique history behind each individual design.
The new collection includes complicated timepieces, models from all regular collections including the Calatrava, Aquanaut, Nautilus, Golden Ellipse and Twenty-4, as well as a selection of brand new watches.
The new models include the Ref. 5205G-013, a men’s white gold Annual Calendar watch with a two-tone sunburst dial featuring a subtle black graduation to the circumference. The sleek, contemporary style is underscored by the new three-facetted Dauphine hands, filled with luminescence in the centre facet.
Another exciting release is the Ref. 5524R-001, a new rose gold version of the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time, with a graduated brown dial, sculpted luminous coated numerals and an orange ‘1’ of the analog date on the subsidiary dial at six o’clock. The watch has also been released as a ladies model, the Ref. 7234R-001; the first automatically wound Pilot’s watch in the ladies collection.
Further enriching Patek Philippe’s collection of complicated ladies’ watches is the Ref. 7150/250R-001, a rose gold chronograph with a bezel adorned with 72 diamonds. Both the manually wound movement and the silvery opaline dial, can be seen clearly through the sapphire-crystal ‘box’ glass, used for the first time on both the front and back of a Patek Philippe watch in the current collection.
Mark Hearn, Managing Director for Patek Philippe UK, says:
‘We are delighted that Hettich will host the Patek Philippe Exhibition Collection this November. It is a rare chance for clients to view and experience the collection in their showroom and at an exclusive evening. For us, it is a real privilege to have Hettich as one of our authorised retailers as they have the commitment to give their clients the ultimate experience when they are buying a Patek Philippe timepiece.’
Jeffrey Chinn, Managing Director, Hettich, says:
‘Our partnership with Patek Philippe extends over 50 years and as a private, family business we celebrate the traditional values that have served us so well. We are delighted to present the 2018 Patek Philippe collection at Hettich and look forward to welcoming all ‘Patek Lovers’ during the exhibition.’
