Patek Philippe-Calatrava " Clous hun Paris" Ref. 6119R as well as 6119G
Patek Philippe is updating one of the most iconic formal timepieces, Calatrava, whose bezel is actually decorated with a guilloche " Paris nail" pattern.
This particular polished diamond pattern made up of small pyramid tips very first appeared on Calatrava's viser in 1934, Ref. 96D (D stands for decoration). Since that time, it has been reinterpreted into several versions. The most successful product with this decorative element has become the Reference 3919, launched within 1985 and produced with regard to 20 years: it is equipped with the manual winding 215 PLAYSTATION movement, a small second in 6 o'clock, black colored Roman numerals and White-colored dial with straight lugs.
The Calatrava " Clous de Paris" now has an obvious modern look, with a diameter of 39 mm, a dial along with three-dimensional hour markers along with a new hand-wound Patek Philippe movement specially developed with this model.
Two variations are proposed. Reference 6119R-001 combines a rose gold situation and a silver grained switch, as well as rose gold applied hour-markers and hands.
The platinum model Research 6119G-001 features a charcoal grey dial, interrupted by a up and down satin finish and a snail-shaped small seconds counter. The actual applied hour markers and also hands are made of the same metallic as the case.
The golden prince-style hours and minute hands possess three facets instead of 2. Thanks to the railway monitor minute scale on the periphery of the dial, it is easy to go through. The slender " cheveu" -style seconds hand moves on an auxiliary subdial from 6 o'clock, which is split up into four quarters.
The round bezel will be decorated with guilloche buttons, a slightly wider chamfered user profile and a slender polished curved frame-shaped sapphire crystal reflection.
The shape of the strap ear has also been redesigned. They are now not really straight, but curved, the actual transition from the case towards the strap is smoother besides making the wrist more comfortable.
The new hand-wound Patek Philippe movement with a reserve of power of 65 hours is usually specially designed for this design. Its development was in line with the desire for a manual turning movement with a diameter more than 215 PS.
In fact , the inner diameter from the new 30-255 PS motion is 30. 4 milimetre (total diameter of thirty-one mm), while the 215 BY THE WAY is 21. 5 millimeter (total diameter of twenty one. 9 mm), and the elevation remains unchanged at second . 55 mm, which makes it You are able to limit the total thickness in the watch (the back of the particular crystal) to 8. 08 milimeter.
The new 30-255 PS movement is particularly strong, providing a power reserve of 67 hours or nearly 3 days. The result is achieved by utilizing two main barrels organized in parallel. Unlike collection barrels to extend the power book, parallel barrels increase the torque of the movement by growing the torque of a couple of barrels.
Despite the slim framework, this solution supports the utmost force and allows typically the deployment of a balance together with twice the moment of inertia of 10 mg/cm2. The larger moment of inertia enhances rate stability and makes simple the precise adjustment of a movements that beats at a rate of recurrence of 4 Hz (28, 000 vibrations per hour), with a maximum deviation associated with -3/+2 seconds in twenty four hours.
The stop-second function, which stops the total amount wheel when the crown is definitely pulled, can set time with one second precision. When the crown is pushed returning to its original position, often the mechanism activates the balance steering wheel to make it move again.
Through the sapphire amazingly caseback, you can see that the 30-255 PS movement has 6 bridges-one for each wheel or even function-with Geneva stripes along with chamfered and polished sides.
