Patek Philippe Ultra Thin Dress Watch

Patek Philippe Ultra Thin Dress Watch

Why We Love It

There are few brands that know how to execute simple perfection better than Patek Philippe. 

This particular piece, a Reference 4289, was manufactured circa 1970. It features an 18k yellow gold rectangular case with a stepped bezel and is powered by the manually winding Calibre 16-250. 

We fell in love instantly with its beautiful eggshell white enamel Roman dial which shows a faint spidering throughout, giving it a very unique marbled look. Reminiscent of Cartier's popular Tank design language, this Patek is only 7mm in thickness, offering a truly svelte wearing experience quite unlike the heftier Cartier pieces from the era.

If you're seeking something dressy but slightly out of the norm, this lovely Patek is a great way to go!

The Patek Philippe Story

Patek Philippe.

Founded in 1839, Patek Philippe is one of the oldest watch manufacturers in the world with an uninterrupted watchmaking history. Few luxury brands in the world carry the gravitas of their name, and for good reason.  The firm's commitment to excellence in horological manufacture is unflinching, and their track record of innovation in design without peer.  They continue to lead the industry, and even their fiercest competitors have nothing but the utmost respect for the company.

Owning a Patek Philippe is for many the ultimate goal of timepiece collecting, and for a certain type, the only timepieces they collect. Whichever way you look at it, there is no questioning the elegance of design, superlative manufacture of their cases and movements, or the sheer elegance and emotion that comes from owning one.

Of course for a brand that is steeped in heritage, we are told ‘You never actually own a Patek Philippe…”

Well, you know the rest.
