A LIMITED-EDITION WATCH CELEBRATES THE NEW PATEK PHILIPPE MANUFACTURE BUILDING
The commemorative Ref. 6007A-001 Calatrava comes in a limited edition of 1000 watches with a diameter of 40 mm and a sapphire crystal caseback specially marked with a Calatrava cross and the “New Manufacture 2019” inscription.
2019 is the year when the first work groups moved into the new PP6 production building, a flagship of impressive size for the creation, development, and production of Patek Philippe watches.
The Ref. 6007A-001 Calatrava instantly stands out with its case and broad cambered bezel in polished steel, a very rare material in Patek Philippe’s collections.
The design of the dial reflects an inimitable and dynamic face. Be it the railway track scale of the hour circle with triangular markers, the baton hands for the hours and minutes that recall the Ref. 6006 Calatrava, the integration of the self-winding caliber 324 S C movement with an aperture date at 3 o’clock or the applied Arabic numerals: all these elements contribute to a vibrant and exciting dial architecture.
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 that contrasts visibly against the white dial imprints as well as the applied numerals and the white-lacquered hands in white gold with luminescent coating.
In its center, the dial features a “carbon”-style texture that plays with light and can be interpreted as an enigmatic footnote referring to the world of high-tech.
Another special feature: The calfskin strap with white decorative seams, the prong buckle, and a delicately embossed pattern reminiscent of textile fabrics are coordinated in terms of color and structure to match the dial center.
