Calatrava Patek Philippe, Ref. 6007A
A limited edition watch commemorates the opening of the new Patek Philippe Manufacture building
To celebrate the end of the construction of its new production facility in Plan-les-Ouates (Geneva), Patek Philippe has created an exclusive stainless steel Calatrava with a unique design that will make collectors’ hearts jump.
The Calatrava commemorative watch Ref. 6007A-001 is produced in a limited edition of 1000 units of 40 mm diameter and a sapphire crystal back specially marked with the Calatrava cross. It also bears the inscription “New Manufacture 2019”.
The Calatrava Ref. 6007A-001 stands out for its case and its wide domed bezel in polished steel, a material rarely present in the Patek Philippe collections.
The dial design reflects an inimitable and dynamic face. The railway of the circle of the hours with triangular indices; the baton hour and minute hands, which evoke the Calatrava Ref. 6006; the automatic movement of the caliber 324 S C, with a date window at 3 o’clock; the Arabic numerals applied … All these elements contribute to make the architecture of the dial of this piece vibrant and exciting.
The expressly graphic style emphasizes the technical personality of the dial. At the same time, the gray-blue hue is a signature element accompanied by the subtle circular satin finish, which visibly contrasts with the white prints on the dial, with applied numerals and white-gold coated hands lacquered in white. luminescent coating.
At its center, the dial features a “carbon” style texture that plays with light and can be interpreted as a nod to the world of high technology.
Another special feature: the calfskin strap with white stitching and pin buckle is finely embossed to create a “woven” effect. The relief and color match the center of the dial and give it a sporty yet elegant look.
