Patek Philippe’s women’s moon phase watch series welcomes a new member. The new Calatrava Ref. 7121 watch, launched this year, is set with 66 brilliant-cut diamonds, like a dazzling galaxy. This classic and fascinating treasure seems to make every minute countless endless charm. The timing of the Calatrava Ref. 7121 debut was just right. For modern women who are fashion-conscious and confident, mechanical watches are now their undisputed first choice. It would be perfect if you could add some complexity. If the brilliance of diamonds blooms again, it can be said that the dream comes true. Patek Philippe’s new hand-wound moon phase display Calatrava women’s watch combines these three elements. This watch is particularly striking with its classic elegant, gold-tone round official Calatrava case.
The new moon phase reveals that the Calatrava Ref. 7121 watch is 33 mm in diameter and is stylish and unconventional. Such a rare treasure is worthy to accompany you throughout your life. It can be used as a perfect jewelry and a reliable timing device. The development and manufacturing process of this watch incorporates many unparalleled features. The first is Patek Philippe’s unique design-for decades, Patek Philippe’s design has been known for its unique and timeless charm. The classic round Calatrava case is carefully crafted from Patek Philippe in yellow gold and polished by hand. The ‘Official Style’ styling includes round case sides, vertical lugs and screw-fastened strap pins. Almost a century ago, when the first official watch was born, this unique shape became very popular, further proving that true beauty does not fade with the passage of time.
The creamy white dial is feminine and feminine, and the fine grain texture makes it more smooth and silky. The soft background highlights the bright light of gold three-dimensional Porcupine figures, gold hands and 66 top-quality flawless Wesselton diamonds. The total weight of the diamond is about 0.54 carats. The bezel is dotted with a miniature galaxy on the wrist, which surrounds the watch, shining a little bit of starlight. All this perfectly shows the characteristics of this moon phase display watch, and the small moon phase window at 6 o’clock shows you the subtle changes of the moon phase, year after year, and never ends. The moon and stars are adorned with gold powder, which perfectly echoes the gold ‘Poire Stuart’ hour and minute hands and elegant leaf-shaped second hands. The slightly curved sapphire crystal glass back protects the dial and these delicate decorative elements.
