PRAGNELL: THE PATEK PHILIPPE COLLECTION
One of our favourite high-end jewellery houses Pragnell will be hosting a Patek Philippe 2019 Exhibition Collection at their recently expanded sixteenth-century Stratford-upon-Avon showroom between the 18th to 22nd June 2019. Pragnell and Patek Philippe enjoyed a long history, dating back almost exactly fifty years to the first meeting of Philippe Stern, the Honorary President of Patek Philippe, and Jeremy Pragnell in 1969.
Blending Pragnell’s sixteenth-century building heritage into the design, the showroom features a newly refurbished Patek Philippe display, showcasing the very best of Patek Philippe timepieces and clocks.
One of the highlights this year is the Calatrava Weekly Calendar (pictured above), an innovative complication: the weekly calendar, a semi-integrated mechanism displaying the current week number, in addition to the month, day and date. It is also the only steel Calatrava in the current Patek Philippe collection, with a silvery opaline dial and with five hands from the centre. Another special feature is the typography of the letters and numbers on the dial, based on the handwriting of one of the manufacture’s designers.
The second timepiece is The Patek Philippe Diamond Ribbon Joaillerie (pictured above) has been reinterpreted in a new white gold design with a slightly larger diameter, increased from 33.3 mm to 36.5 mm. As a result, the distinctive vortex of precious stones makes the dial stand out in a slim, elegant profile as the timepiece houses the caliber 240, the ultra-thin self-winding movement.
