Patek Philippe Offers Ladies Calatrava Ref. 4897R Watch

Jun 05, 2009
Patek Philippe's exquisite Calatrava Ref. 4896G timepiece for women, manufactured from white gold, is gracefully followed by the new Ref. 4897R.

Combining the warm radiance of 18-karat rose gold with a dial performed in deep chocolate brown and diamond-set bezel, this extremely exquisite watch is in line with women collectors’ desires, due to the outstanding Patek Philippe 215 Caliber mechanical movement.

The Patek Philippe Ladies Calatrava Ref. 4897R timepiece’s diameter is 33 mm and its height is 6.35 mm only. These advantages, contributing elegancy to any dressing style, to a great extent derive from thinness of the delicate mechanism secured within the polished case.

On the entire periphery of the chic dial there are seventy-two "Top Wesselton" round brilliant diamonds, the total weight of which is about 0.47 carat. Catching the subtle light, polished dauphine hands, matte triangular shaped hour markers along with the intricate guilloche pattern produce a supremely graceful effect.

Both the case and dial’s amazing beauty is accompanied by the matching satin strap that is secured to the wrist by means of the prong buckle made of rose gold.

An exhibition window made of sapphire crystal in the case-back of the Patek Philippe Ladies Calatrava Ref. 4897R timepiece demonstrates the in-house 215 PS caliber.

Consisting of 130 individual parts as well as 18 jewels, this hand-wound movement reveals a Gyromax balance wheel beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour and the Geneva type adjustable balance stud. The power reserve of the barrel constitutes 44 hours.

As to the movement structure, Patek Philippe meets all the requirements which are necessary for the exclusive Geneva seal to be obtained.

The Patek Philippe Ladies Calatrava Ref. 4897R watch boasts 30-meter water-resistance.

The sapphire crystal demonstrates a slightly curved profile, while the winding crown shows the Calatrava Cross, symbol of Patek Philippe renowned all over the world.
