Haute Time Visits Patek Philippe Headquarters in New York City

Last week Haute Time had the chance to visit Patek Philippe in New York City. The Swiss manufacture’s headquarters in the iconic Rockefeller Plaza is exactly the sort of space one would expect from Patek Philippe; classic, minimalist and luxurious.

During our visit we got an exclusive look at some pieces with beautiful complications:

The Patek Philippe Ref. 7130R is a Ladies Worldtime watch. The standout feature on this timepiece is of course the bezel, which is set with 62 diamonds. The buckle of the alligator leather strap is also set with 27 diamonds.

However, the movement is a thing of beauty as well. It was a real treat to see a women’s timepiece with serious complications; 24-hour and day/night indications for the 24 time zones. The caseback offers a great view of the mechanical self-winding movement, which is decorated with the hallmark Patek Philippe seal. T

he dial is hand-guilloched ivory-opaline, and the 36mm case is rose gold.

The Patek Philippe Ref. 5130J is a Men’s Worldtime watch. This piece features a slightly larger 39.5mm case in yellow gold, with a silvery white guilloched sunburst dial. The chocolate brown alligator leather strap with square scales is a great complement to this piece.

The Patek Philippe Ref. 5170G is a Chronograph with central chronograph hand and 30-minute elapsed time counter. This 39mm white gold timepiece has a more sporty feel. The silvery white dial features gold applied numerals and a seconds subdial.
