Handcraft Heritage

Hong Kong | 7 October

This season for the Hong Kong Autumn Sales 2023, Important Watches I presents a captivating selection of timepieces to celebrate the exquisite handcrafts from Patek Philippe. This selection of watches highlights the arts of watchmaking and this is best exemplified by the mesmerising enamel dials, including the "Papillon" and "Owl" by the most celebrated enamellist Anita Porchet, or the pocket watch including a Bacchus and Venus scene by the famous Madame Hélène May-Mercier, regarded as one of the best enamellers in history. This in turn leads to a selection of grand complicated pocket- and wristwatches that illustrate the most complex and sophisticated horological craftmanship from Patek Philippe, with a spectacular yellow gold keyless clock watch that includes a grande and petetie sonnerie minute repeater, as well as a perpetual calendar and a split seconds chronograph.
 Discover these spectacular timepieces on 7 October 2023.
