Patek Philippe Gold Watches – The Ultimate Classic
Hardly any watch manufacturer can ignore the current hype for stainless steel watches. The traditional Geneva-based manufacturer, Patek Philippe, has also been producing steel watches since 1976. Despite all this, it should not be forgottten that gold is the classic material for a Patek Philippe watch. To this day, despite the hype about steel, the family business mainly focuses on watches made of precious metal.
At CHRONEXT, you will find a huge selection of Patek Philippe gold watches at fair prices. Each model is also extensively tested for authenticity and quality before sale and then comes with our 24-month CHRONEXT warranty.
Manufacture for highest demands
Patek Philippe is the last family-owned watch manufacturer in Geneva. Founded in 1839, the company has been producing high-quality timepieces without interruption for almost 200 years and, together with Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet, is one of the Holy Trinity of watchmakers - the so-called "holy trinity" in the scene. Patek Philippe is best known for perpetual calendars and other Grandes Complications, such as minute repeaters, split-seconds chronographs and tourbillons. Patek Philippe continues to choose gold as the preferred case material for the majority of its watches, both classic three-hand watches and sophisticated Grandes Complications.
Gold from tradition
The letter in the reference number shows which material it is:

- G stands for white gold
- P stands for platinum
- A stands for stainless steel
Gold as preferred material
Together with Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe was largely responsible for the birth of stainless steel sports watches: in the 1970s, both manufacturers attempted to counteract the existentially threatening quartz crisis with the launch of the Royal Oak and Nautilus stainless steel sports watches.The two watches ended up becoming two icons that today are among the most coveted watches worldwide.
Despite this, Patek Philippe continues to attach great importance to classic models made of precious metals and to balanced production: Although demand for the stainless steel models Nautilus and Aquanaut is high, the company produces a large part of the classic dress watches, which constitute the core DNA of the brand, from the 60,000 watches produced annually. Against this backdrop, it is easy to explain that the classic Patek Philippe gold watch is still the archetype of the Manufacturer, because apart from the steel Calatrava (Ref. 6007A) launched in 2020, Patek Philippe only produces the sporty Nautilus and Aquanaut models and a few examples of the feminine Twenty-4 collection in stainless steel - all other watches are either gold or platinum.
Patek Philippe men's watches in gold
Those who prefer gold as the material for a Patek Philippe men's watch are in a comfortable position: you will find gold watches in every collection at Patek Philippe. In addition to the classic and complicated models, this also applies to the Nautilus and Aquanaut, whose classic models are made of stainless steel. The Geneva Manufacture has long been producing these models in precious metals.
The same applies to a Patek Philippe ladies' watch: gold can also be found in the ladies' models. The Twenty 4 and some feminine versions of the Calatrava are available in rose gold; in yellow gold and white gold. For example, Patek Philippe offers the reference 7121J.
