At Basel, Patek Philippe unveiled a number of women’s timepieces that ran the gamut from functional everyday elegance to show-stopping glamorous.

Ref. 7118/1200A Ladies Automatic Nautilus (Diamonds)

Patek Philippe refreshed the Ladies Atomatic Nautilus with a slightly enlarged case size, from 33.6 mm to 35.2mm, and improved the bracelet with a new fold-over clasp with adjustment system that allows 2-4mm extra give on the wrist.

Revised range of dial colors include silver, blue and gradated grey, with the Nautilus’s signature embossed horizontal bands across the dial. In steel case, the bezel is set with 56 Top Wes-selton Pure diamonds (approximately 0.67ct). This reference replaces the ref. 7018/1A.

Ref. 7300/1450R Twenty-4 Automatic Haute Joaillerie

Formerly available only with quartz movements, the Twenty-4 was equipped with an automatic movement for the first time in October last year, offered in steel or rose gold and a variety of dial colours. There was also a dressier version with diamond-set bezel, crown and bracelet. This year, Patek Philippe is raising the spectacle with a full-pave diamond version, in rose gold case. Leaving only the most minimal of bare metal (sides, markers), practically every square millimeter is covered, requiring more than three thousand diamonds in “snow” (approximately 17.21ct).

Ref. 4899/901G Calatrava Haute Joaillerie

Patek pulled out all the stops on this number; succeeding the 2017 ref. 4899/900G in luscious pink, this present reference offers the same bejeweled lushness in pastel blues, from the diamonds and blue sapphires carpeting the case, crown, buckle and dial. Where the latter is not shrouded in precious stones, blue mother-of-pearl is dressed in fine hand-engraving of a feather motif, down to the white gold leaf-shaped hands.
