Description

When Patek Philippe reopened its Geneva salon on rue du Rhone in the year 2006, it celebrated the historic event with the 300pcs limited edition Calatrava Ref: 5565A. A humble 36mm timepiece in steel, with the case back featuring a fine engraving of the flagship building with the commemorative inscription:  “1839 – 1892 – 2006.”
In 2019, Patek Philippe inaugurated its new headquarters in Plan-les-Ouates, Geneva.

The CHF 600M, 10 floors magnificent structure brings all of Patek Philippe’s watchmaking under one roof.

It is equipped for almost every aspect of watch manufacturing, including basic machining, to ateliers for hand-finishing and assembling movements, to metiers d’art studios for engraving, guilloche and enameling.

A new milestone in the brand’s history, it called for a celebratory timepiece. And Patek answered with yet another Calatrava in steel.

 

The present model Ref: 6007A-001, limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide. It is not just any Calatrava, but a bridge between the company’s glorious past and the bright future.

While the 38mm Calatrava case is an ode to the past, the overall bold aesthetic, with a partly guilloched blue dial, Arabic numerals and the matching blue calfskin strap, with its embossed woven pattern is definitely a look into the brand’s future.

The guilloched ‘carbon’ pattern on the dial also featured on Ref: 5004T (Only Watch 2013) and Ref: 5208-101 (Only Watch 2017). The latter was also offered on a similar blue woven calfskin strap. The link to these “Piece Unique” references adds to the glamour of 6007A.

The applied gold Arabic numerals and gold hands are filled with super-luminova, something that’s never been done before in the Calatrava collection.

The inner hour scale neatly separates the guilloched part from the rest of the satin finished blue, while the stepped outer seconds ring adds to the depth of the dial. The dial also features a simple, yet classic date window at 3 ‘o’clock.

The sapphire case back is inscribed with a big Calatrava cross at the center and the writing “New Manufacture 2019” encircling it.
Seen through the inscription is the robust self-winding Patek Philippe caliber 324 SC with a gold rotor, offering 45hr power reserve.
