This limited-edition Calatrava watch in stainless steel celebrates the completion of Patek Philippe’s new production building in Plan-les-Ouates (Geneva).
This Ref. 6007A-001 Calatrava features a polished stainless steel case with a broad cambered bezel. It has a gray-blue circular grained dial with the applied Arabic numerals.
The railway track scale of the hour circle with triangular markers, and the pierced baton hands for the hours and minutes evoke the Ref. 6006 Calatrava (part of the collection since 2017). Equipped with the self-winding caliber 324 S C movement, this timepiece displays an aperture date at 3 o’clock.
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 luminous coatings.
In its center, the dial features a “carbon”-style texture that plays with light. The calfskin strap with white decorative seams, the prong buckle, and a delicately embossed structure reminiscent of textile fabrics are coordinated in terms of color and structure to match the dial center.
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 production building.
