Introduction

Easily situated amongst the most iconic dress watches ever, the Patek Philippe Calatrava embodies the very essence of what a classically-styled timepiece should look like. Defining the entire market niche in 1932 when it debuted, the Calatrava has become the foundation of Patek Philippe’s elegant offerings, with the collection’s latest round of updates coming in 2021 with the “Clous de Paris” ref. 6119, which is what we have here. Standing as a tribute to the historic ref. 3919 and its successor, the ref. 5119, the new ref. 6119 blends several signature design elements into one by using a larger case to create a more contemporary silhouette, in keeping with modern preferences for larger watches. Sized at 39mm, the ref. 6119 features a refined aesthetic with its studded Clous de Paris bezel layered upon an otherwise understated circular 18kt white gold case design that boasts sharp lugs. Featuring a monochromatic grey dial with a vertical satin brushed finish and a small second dial found at 6 o’clock with a concentric finish that contrasts the rest of its dial, the various textures across its bezel, case, and dial combine to create a truly beautiful watch that still manages to play to its Bauhaus-derived aesthetic in what is clearly a direct reference to its puritan roots and historical lineage, all while demonstrating Patek Philippe's ability to create some of horology's most stunning timepieces.

THE DIAL

With its grey dial boasting a contrasting finish in its subdial and faceted polished hour markers and hands, the ref. 6119G's display is the perfect example of how a watch can transform in various lighting conditions.

THE MOVEMENT

Powered by the manual-wind cal. 30-255 movement like its two predecessor models, the ref. 6119G displays an incredible amount of high-end finishing thanks to its lack of a winding rotor, which leaves an uninterrupted view of its architecture.

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

Condition

Watch is in new condition. There is a gentle crease in the strap as shown due to the watch being stored in the box.

Please Note: Due to CITES considerations, if the watch is to be shipped outside of the USA, the exotic skin strap will have to be removed.

Our Perspective

A beautifully styled and perfectly modern variant of the iconic Calatrava, the ref. 6119G shows what Patek can do when they fuse their legendary craftsmanship with horological heritage.
