Patek Philippe‘s Calatrava brings an unorthodox design to the table. Having debuted at Baselworld 2017, the watch owns the distinctive seconds subdial with pride.
What’s so unusual about a seconds subdial, you ask? Well, take a look at Patek Philippe’s Ref. 6006G Calatrava and think again. Sleek design, bold numbers, graphic dial and white gold body. Doesn’t it have all the elements of a classic watch? Yet, it’s the seconds subdial, asymmetrically placed between 4 and 5 o’clock, which makes it unique.
As the brand celebrates the 40th anniversary of its caliber 240 movement, it presents to the watch world a wonderous masterpiece – Calatrava.
The classic round white-gold case is enlarged by 2 mm to 39 mm. The larger case in 18k white gold enhances the watch further. It follows the two-tone graphic concept. Plain Arabic numerals adds to its elegance. The analog date comes with a scale on the outer circumference of the dial.
Certain elements, such as ebony black and silver for the dials, create a unique impression. White-lacquered baton-style hands are longitudinally pierced. The date hand has replaced the former lunar crescent. The time window is framed by a broad, mirror-polished bezel. The watch’s highly precise movement has a rate tolerance between -3 and +2 seconds per day. The shiny black alligator strap with large square scales completes this picture of elegance.
If understated perfection is up your alley (and we know it is!), you ought to try the Calatrava by Patek Philippe!
