CALATRAVA Réf. 6007G-001
Three new contemporary-style Calatrava models in white gold
In June 2020, Patek Philippe celebrated the completion of its new production facility at the Plan-les-Ouates site in Geneva with a limited-edition steel Calatrava featuring a novel design that delighted collectors. This Reference 6007A-001 stood out for the very graphic style of its dial inspired by Reference 6006 that was part of the collection from 2017 to 2019.
The Manufacture is now introducing Reference 6007 to its current collection in three new white gold versions featuring a modern, graphic style.
The ebony black dials are distinguished by their rhythmic geometry with double minute scale and enhanced by three types of finishing:
snailing on the inner minute scale; circular satin-finish on the hour circle and a sunburst pattern on the outer minute scale. The center features the embossed “carbon” pattern of Reference 6007A-001.
Legibility is ensured by baton-style hands in anthracite white gold and applied Arabic numerals in white gold, all with white luminescent coating. This dynamic style is further enhanced by a touch of color on the subdivisions of the outer minute scale, the triangular hour-markers of the inner railway-type minute scale, as well as the slim central seconds hand: yellow on the 6007G-001, red on the 6007G-010, and sky blue on the 6007G-011.
The black calfskin straps with embossed “carbon” pattern feature contrasting stitching and an inner lining echoing the dial color. They are equipped with a white gold prong buckle.
Beating at the heart of the fully polished 40mm-diameter white gold case is self-winding 26-330 S C caliber, with a date window at 3 o’clock and a “stop seconds” function serving to set the time to the nearest second. A sapphire crystal case back reveals the architecture and refined finishing of the movement.
