Rolex, Patek Philippe…watches for left-handers, the new charm of watchmakers

A big first for two of the biggest names in Swiss watchmaking to release their version of a so-called “left-handed” watch this year.

Adapting the watch’s crown to suit left-handers is a detail that sounds obvious, but in fact remains a rare example among the multitude of watches offered each year. If the young Parisian house Serica wanted to offer a right-handed or left-handed version in its e-shop since its launch in 2019, it is clear that the topic is indeed on the table this year. Under the question mark? The first versions of this theme were offered by Rolex at the Watches & Wonders show in March, and then by Patek Philippe on October 18.

Temptation of action

Therefore, on the one hand, the legendary GMT-Master II brand professional watch with crown, revised and corrected in black and green version, the crown is off-center at 9 o’clock. Almost impossible to find new, some rare models have been spotted at used gold prices. Patek Philippe, on the other hand, revises the graphic balance of its split-seconds chronograph and perpetual calendar by placing its pushers and crown on the left side. A new version inspired by a unique piece made by the factory in 1927 at the request of a left-handed customer.

Or two beautiful, highly desirable models that expand the range of left-handed or so-called “destro” watches (can be worn on both the left and right hand) where Panerai, Tudor or Tag Heuer already existed, guaranteeing optimal and intuitive wearing comfort for:
