Patek Philippe Dress Watch Ref. 1560

Patek Philippe watches epitomize elegance, sophistication, and unparalleled quality. This particular timepiece, dating back to 1945, is a true testament to the brand’s legacy.

In 1945, the world was emerging from the shadows of World War II, a period marked by resilience and a renewed appreciation for beauty and artistry. As people began to rebuild their lives, there was a resurgence of interest in luxurious items that reflected hope and prosperity.

Crafted by Patek Philippe, this exquisite watch features a solid rose gold case and a sleek design that embodies the essence of Art Deco elegance. Its warm rose gold dial, originally a light rose hue, now bears the marks of time, reminiscent of the journeys it has witnessed.

Accompanied by an extract from the archives, this timepiece tells a story of resilience, elegance, and the enduring spirit of human creativity. It also comes with an original 18k rose gold buckle, adding to its allure. It serves as a reminder of the timeless beauty that emerges from even the darkest of times.

Backstory

All the way back in 1839, Franciszek Czapek and Antoni Patek founded Patek, Czapek & Cie. in Geneva. The two Polish watchmakers manufactured pocket watches until an argument drove them apart in 1845. Patek teamed up with French watchmaker Adrien Philippe and in 1851, Patek, Philippe & Cie. was officially registered and the story of arguably the finest of watch manufacturers was truly underway.

The company would amass an impressive array of firsts and records. Among which the first perpetual calendar pocket watch, first split-second chronograph wristwatch, first perpetual calendar wristwatch and for twenty-seven years they held the record for most complicated watch movement: 33 complications.

Yes, we have entered the realm of haute horology.

The house registered its Calatrava cross logo in 1887. The Calatrava would later become one of the brand’s celebrated collections and even a design template for other brands.

Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin form what is lovingly referred to as the Holy trinity of watchmaking. Three houses that specialized in haute horology, pushing the boundaries of mechanical watchmaking, decoration and finishing techniques.

Much like Rolex and Omega rule the everyday-watch category, the Holy trinity rules haute horology. A sentiment reflected in Patek’s motto since 1996: You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation.
