  • Catalogue Essay

    Dubbed as the oldest Patek Philippe model, the Calatrava was introduced in 1932, the same year the Stern family took the reign of Patek Philippe. Over the years, the manufacturer released various Calatrava models with an array of complications, with its most traditional references paying homage to the ref. 96.

    Taking a heavy influence from the Calatrava ref. 5000 from the 90s, the off-centered small seconds and inner chapter ring sets the stage as an attractive blue print of the ref. 6000. Introduced in 2005, the Calatrava ref. 6000 was first fitted with a glossy black dial and encased in white gold. Other iterations were launched, featuring various case materials such as pink gold and various dial colours such as grey, brown and blue. Boasting incredible charm featuring a red-tipped crescent hand, the date of the month can be read at a glance. Proportioned in a 37mm diameter white gold case and fitted with the thin micro-rotor calibre 240, the Calatrava wears snug on the wrist with comfort.

    The present Patek Philippe ref. 6000G with a glossy black dial is offered in excellent overall condition with its Certificate of Origin and accessories. Discontinued in 2017 with the release of ref. 6006 with a larger 39mm diameter case, the present early example of the 6000G is no doubt a gentleman’s choice.
