The New Patek Philippe Ladies’ Calatrava Ref. 7119
by Mike Manjos on May 1st, 2009
The 7119 is the first Patek of the Basel 2009 collection to hit the stores. It is positively gorgeous.
At 31mm, it is a wonderful women’s size, and it is exciting to see the traditional hobnail, Calatrava bezel revamped for this contemporary beauty.
Whether you are wearing a little black dress or a white t-shirt, the white lacquer dial with its delicate roman numerals and elegant seconds subdial looks stunning. In addition, the matte champagne alligator strap that comes on the yellow gold version is particularly chic.
Adding a subtle magnificence, the 7119 features an exhibition case back showcasing the watch’s spectacular hand-wound, mechanical movement in action.
