Twenty~4 Small Haute Joaillerie Ref. 4909/50 is an elegant ladies watch by Patek Philippe.

The Ref. 4909/50, presented on the Baselworld in April 2003, enriches the Twenty~4® Haute Joaillerie collection with a model with mechanical movement. This Twenty~4® Small differs from the other models by the rich diamonds on case, dial and bracelet, and the mechanical movement.

The watch is available in 18ct rose or white gold and is set with 1468 diamonds of the highest quality "Top Wesselton Pur" , a total of about 8.33 carat. Even the caseback is set with 104 diamonds and also equipped with a sapphire crystal, which allows a view of the mechanical movement calibre PP 16-250 with manual winding. This movement, like all mechanical Patek Philippe watch movements, is provided with the Geneva Seal, which is considered as the highest official award of quality watchmaking.

The elegant and functional Ref. 4909/50 has hands and two Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o'clock in black oxidized gold to ensure an optimal reading of the time. As a special highlight a brilliant adorns the crown of the jewelery watch.

Design and shape of the new Small Haute Joaillerie remember of the original model of the Twenty~4® from 1999, which was created to adequately accompany modern, style-conscious women at all hours and occasions. The most striking features of the latest creation are the stunning diamonds on case, dial and bracelet, and the mechanical movement.
