Since 1839, without interruption, Patek Philippe has been committed to handing down the great art of traditional Genevan watchmaking. The maison enjoys absolute creative freedom which allows it to design, develop and create what connoisseurs agree in recognizing as the best watches in the world. Watches set with precious stones represent a small but significant part of the history of the brand that in the last decades days have gained more and more interest. The present Patek Philippe reference 4244-2 is a combination of elegance, refinement and innovation, as well as a remarkable demonstration of skill. The white-gold two-body case has a slightly rectangular shape with its 25 × 24 mm in size, the bezel has polished edges, opposite to the guilloché decoration on the whole band. The dial has an oval shape painted with a vivid navy blue color, surrounded by a polished oval ring and outer diamond-pavè decoration. It also has an elegant, integrated, three-dimensional bracelet with guillochè decoration.
