  • Catalogue Essay

    Whenever Patek Philippe announces a limited edition launch, the hype is always real. This was the case in 2019 when Patek Philippe released the Calatrava ref. 6007A to celebrate the firm’s new manufacture building “PP6” dedicated for the creation, development and production of Patek Philippe watches.

    The result is the handsomely attractive stainless steel Calatrava ref. 6007A limited edition of 1,000 pieces. Praised by collectors due to its incorporation of stainless steel, the multi-finished blue dial is a fascination on its own. While it displays various tones and hues of blue on the dial, the main dial features a carbon textured finish that contrasts subtly against its satin-finished chapter rings. With highly legible white gold applied Arabic numerals each filled with luminous material, the aesthetics are simple yet refreshing. Once turned over to its caseback, a transparent display is noticeable further inscribed with “New Manufacture 2019” to celebrate the milestone of the firm.

    The present example Patek Philippe Calatrava ref. 6007A from circa 2021 is the first to be offered at a PHILLIPS auction. We are excited to offer to you all at the Hong Kong Watch Auction: XIV a stellar example of the rare reference that collectors have been eyeing on since its launch.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
