The new Diamond Ribbon Joaillerie (Ref. 4968/400R-001) is Patek Philippe’s latest addition to an already sparkling lineup of luxurious watches. Part of the Swiss watchmaker’s incredible Diamond Ribbon collection, this new timepiece is just another fine example of the brand’s legendary ability for diamond setting.
Apart from the classy alligator strap, almost everything is covered in diamonds, with the dial and bezel of this mesmerizing watch being set with 587 diamonds, which weight a total of 3.02 carats, and even the lugs were decorated with 48 diamonds, totaling 0.17 carats.
We should probably mention the twelve rubies as well, acting as beautiful hour markers, and complemented by a highly precise moon-phase display. Patek Philippe decided that the leaf-shaped hour, minute and small seconds hands would be crafted in 18-carat rose gold – an inspired call, if you ask us.
The manually wound mechanical movement, Caliber 215 PS LU, is what powers this stunning Diamond Ribbon Joaillerie watch, even at 30 meters below the sea level, and benefits from a minimum power reserve of 39 hours, going up to a maximum of 44 hours.
A cherry red alligator strap, with square scales, is what helps this timepiece adorn your wrist – well, that and a prong buckle set with 32 diamonds. Impressive, right?
