A Classic Re-envisioned

Patek Philippe launches new version of the Calatrava, one of its most coveted signature pieces

Sponsored by

A true icon in the world of wristwatches since its launch in 1932, the Calatrava with its pure lines and guilloched hobnail bezel embodies the quintessential Patek Philippe style. Its timeless design and flawless movements have been fascinating timepiece aficionados for decades. Over the years it has been repeatedly reinterpreted in numerous versions, in April, the renowned brand released a new, contemporary design, the Calatrava “Clous de Paris” – available in two very distinct iterations. Key features include a slightly larger diameter and a dial with applied hour markers inspired by the first Calatrava of the 1930s.

Calatrava “Clous de Paris” 2021. On the left: 6119G-001. On the right: 6119R-001


The 6119R comes with a silvery grained dial, faceted applied rose gold hour-markers and dauphine-style hands, giving its wearer a sense of old-world elegance. The rose gold case with a diameter of 39 mm houses the new manually wound movement 30-255 PS with a 65-hour power reserve. The shiny chocolate brown alligator leather strap adds the final touches to the sleek and timeless aesthetic.


The second version of the new design, the 6119G, could be described as the moodier, slightly more pared-back of the two. A charcoal grey dial with a satin finish forms a dramatic contrast to the faceted gold applied hour-markers and the white gold faceted dauphine-style hands. The visually striking design is emphasized by a white gold case and a shiny black alligator leather strap. At its heart, also sits the manually wound and exceptionally robust and powerful Caliber 30-255 PS with a 65-hour power reserve.


Each new iteration has been carefully envisioned – from concept to creation. The new interpretation of the Calatrava not only showcases true workmanship and artistry but the brand’s ability to transform and reinvent itself time and time again.
