— The new Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 7200 for Ladies fully focused on hours and minutes.
The key prerequisite for the design of the Ref. 7200 is “form follows function”, the Bauhaus philosophy that inspired the gestalt of the first Calatrava timepiece in 1932. The 18K rose gold case of the fake Omega watch is round. Its sole and self-evident objective is to measure time. Two hands, twelve applied rose-gold numerals, and sixty delicate minute markers indicate the time. The flanks of the slender case are rounded, and the straight lugs with screwed strap bars exemplify the iconic “Officer’s” style. The dial features a fine-grained texture with a silky effectand two Poire Stuart hands in rose gold. The face is protected by a scratch-resistant and cambered sapphire-crystal glass.
The case back has a sapphire-crystal glass that reveals the ultra-thin, self-winding mechanical movement, Caliber 240, with a 22K gold minirotor fully recessed in the plate. Every movement of the wrist delivers energy to the mainspring barrel. With a height of merely 2.53 mm, it is extremely thin; this is why the case of the Ref. 7200 is so svelte. The bridges, the balance cock, and the gold rotor are decorated with classic Geneva striping, complemented with the sparkle of polished slightly rounded chamfers, a hallmark of Patek Philippe calibers. The main plate is handstippled with perlage. Paired with an innovative Spiromax® hairspring made of Silinvar®, the Gyromax® balance beats at a frequency of 21,600 vph to assure high rate accuracy within a tolerance of -3 to +2 seconds per day. Its frequency adjustment principle, based on asymmetric poising weights, was a Patek Philippe invention for which a patent was granted 60 years ago, and the Spiromax® balance spring is a patented Patek Philippe development as well.
