Five New Patek Philippe Watches to Check out in 2017

Patek Philippe is a brand that stands out among collectors and horology enthusiasts. Since 1839 the company has consistently delivered on high end luxury watches in limited production runs. There are five distinctions that make a Patek Philippe high in value and demand. The first is quality. Fine craftsmanship is poured into each piece using premium materials, innovative design and individual attention for each watch that is built by the artisans. Each is intended to be a masterpiece in its own right and they have been successful in reaching this goal. The second is aesthetic. Most Patek Philippe pieces are understated yet classy with remarkable visual appeal. They exude elegance and lavish charm as well as being comfortable to wear.

Each watch is known for retaining its value and in many cases, gaining through time when preserved in mint or near mint condition. Due to limitations on production numbers there is a scarcity of Patek Philippe watches. This adds to their collectability and has a tendency to increase the monetary value.
