Best of the Best 2012: Women's Watches: Complications: Patek Philippe Ladies First Minute Repeater

  • Patek Philippe Ladies First Minute Repeater

Unlike so many of Patek Philippe’s men’s watches, the brand’s latest series of women’s complicated timepieces will spend more time on their owners’ wrists than in their safes—or at least they should. Credit for making the Ladies First Minute Repeater (price available upon request) so wearable goes to designer and Patek Philippe creative director Sandrine Stern, wife of the company’s president, Thierry Stern. The watch’s proportions and subtle coloration are all that distinguish it as a women’s design, enabling it to retain the gravity that a complicated piece such as this should possess.
