Patek Philippe Pocket Watch Ref. 600/4
What a collector’s piece we have here!
The Patek Philippe reference 600 is truly one of the most beautiful time-only pocket watches from the manufacturer and has been produced for over three decades. Therefore, becoming an icon in the field of high-end pocket watches.
The reference 600 was first introduced in the year 1933 and was made in all four metals, with a variety of dial designs. However, in that era of time, Patek Phillipe chose to focus more on making wristwatches instead of pocket watches to prevent the business from falling.
Time traveling to 20 years later exactly we have this prime example in pink gold with ruby and diamond-set numerals and the case is a rare example of one of the most popular pocket watches produced by the company, as the edges the case has been set with rubies. But still, featuring a timeless yet modernist design.
When taking a closer look at this example you can see drilled minute markers alongside the exceptional cream-colored dial with small-seconds, making it a highly legible pocket watch due to the sizable diameter of 43.5mm.
Pocket watch enthusiasts will notice how thin this Patek actually is. This is because it is equipped with the 17-140 caliber made by Patek and 99 rubies about 4.80ct together. Due to this caliber, Patek Phillipe was able to make one of the thinnest pocket watches of this era.

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.
