Patek Philippe’s new Calatrava Ref. 7200 women’s watch is made of elegant rose gold, with the focus on hours and minutes. The watch neither displays the seconds nor the date, but simply displays the flow of time in a leisurely manner. This watch is specially designed for women who are calm and perceive the essence of things. It is full of timeless classic charm and exquisite femininity.
Simplicity is beauty
In a modern society with multitasking, the simple design of the Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 7200 watch seems to soothe the soul. This watch does the opposite and merely indicates our most precious asset: time. Precise, calm and beautiful is its ultimate mission. The new Calatrava women’s watch embodies the tradition of Patek Philippe’s two-hand watch focusing on simplicity. Any other additions are cumbersome.
The Bauhaus design concept of ‘shape comes with function’ is an important prerequisite for Patek Philippe to create Ref. 7200. The first Calatrava watch born in 1932 was inspired by this concept. The watch is designed to be circular due to the circular motion of the hands and the time train. It goes without saying that the only pursuit of this watch is to measure time. Two hands, 12 rose gold digital hour markers and delicate and slender 60 minute markers can accurately display the time, and the ‘PATEK PHILIPPE GENEVE’ logo engraved on the surface is the highest guarantee for accurate travel time and reliable performance. The fascination of the new Calatrava women’s watch lies in its simple design. The slim side edges of the case, the round and elegant case, the sturdy vertical lugs and the screw-fastened strap bolts, show the classic features of the official case. The fine grain texture of the dial shows an extraordinary silky effect, perfectly complementing the two ‘Poire Stuart’ rose gold hands. The sapphire crystal is slightly curved, making it less prone to slippage and perfectly protecting the delicate dial.
Through the sapphire crystal transparent cover, you can see the beautiful style of ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement. This is the industry-renowned Caliber 240 movement with a 22K gold mini-drive. Each swivel of the wrist powers the main barrel. The extremely thin case of the Ref. 7200, with a thickness of only 2.53 mm, makes it extremely light and elegant. The splint, balance wheel splint and gold automatic plate are all decorated with classic Geneva stripes, rounded and chamfered, which is also a major symbol of Patek Philippe movement. The motherboard is decorated with hand-polished, swirling circular patterns. Gyromax® balance with Spiromax® balance spring with Silinvar® innovative material. The swing frequency is 21,600 semi-oscillations per hour to ensure superb travel time accuracy. The average daily error range is only -3 to +2 seconds. The wobble frequency can be adjusted with an eccentric balance weight. This invention originated from the watchmaking workshop in Geneva 60 years ago. In addition, the Spiromax® balance spring is also a patent for Patek Philippe design.
Patek Philippe’s new Ref. 7200 Calatrava women’s watch is a masterpiece of minimalist art. The low-key, gorgeous 18K rose gold case perfectly cares for the subtle mechanical heart, and is mated with a matte pearl beige crocodile leather strap and a rose gold pin buckle.
