While lots of the attention on Patek Philippe calatrava 7121 replica watch at BaselWorld this season was concentrated (rightly so) about the new 5960 Annual Calendar in stainless steel (and speculation about what is coming up for its 175th anniversary party later this season, roughly which Patek has thus far managed the unlikely achievement of a entire information blackout) they also introduced two new ladies’ timepieces we believed captured in several ways how to do a exemplary, haute de gamme level ladies’ watch. These are the 2 references 4968G-010 moon phase, in white gold, and the softly but undoubtedly lush 7121/1J-001.
They’re both powered with a lovely movement: the moon phase version of Patek’s cal. 215, the 215 PS LU (LU in this case for phase de lune, or the moon phase, and PS to get miniature seconde. ) Caliber 215 is an excellent choice for these watches; the 9 3/4 ligne movement’s unassuming but also has the feeling of self-assured silent luxury one expects from Patek Philippe calatrava black 7121 replica watches. Either as a step up from a quartz powered ladies’ watch or as a heirloom-grade timepiece in its own right, it’s got the advantage of strengthening those buys it the more they learn about watchmaking the happier they will be with their choice.
The situation designs are also exceptionally refined, unassuming but luxuriously feminine, with vintage-flavored directly lugs; we loved these two layouts but can not help but observe the bracelet of ref. 7121/1J-001 is outstanding (and it makes us wish once again to see a grain-of-rice bracelet on one of that which we think is among the most under appreciated Patek Philippe nautilus 7121 fake, the Golden Ellipse.) Setting ref. 4968G-010 aside, however, is a lovely subtle detail: the diamonds in the bezel are set at a gently arcing spiral.
