Unveiled at Baselworld 2017, the new Patek Philippe Ref. 6006G Calatrava pays tribute to the iconic ultrathin self winding Caliber 240 that celebrates 40th anniversary this year. Its unique dial design boasts an analog date and a seconds subdial placed between 4 and 5 o'clock. The reason for this is a design peculiarity of the caliber 240 PS movement. It was praised when Patek Philippe, in 1991, presented its ultra-thin self winding Calatrava Ref. 5000 model with a seconds subdial that became an unmistakably distinctive feature of the model family.
This time window is framed by a broad, mirror-polished bezel as befits a classic Calatrava case in 18K white gold. Its sapphire-crystal case back presents attractive views from any angle as well. The bridge side of the lavishly finished caliber 240 PS C movement with polished chamfers, parallel Geneva striping, gold-filled engravings and the recessed 22K gold mini-rotor that displays an engraved Calatrava cross.
The highly precise movement has a rate tolerance between -3 and +2 seconds per day.
The shiny black Alligator strap with large square scales complements the distinctive elegance of the watch. It is secured with a fold-over clasp in 18K white gold.
