The First Patek Philippe Wrist Chronograph to Debut as a Model for Ladies

Over recent years, more and more women have discovered a penchant for complicated wristwatches, especially those designed and crafted by Patek Philippe according to the finest traditions of horological artistry. They are attracted to the functionality and seductive beauty of chronographs that once appealed mainly to men. That is why Patek Philippe decided – for the very first time – to launch its latest complicated caliber in a woman’s format. The reference 7071R “Ladies First Chronograph” joins the manufacture’s collection of elegant and intricate watches explicitly designed for feminine wrists.

ELEGANT AND COMFORTABLE STRAPS

The hand-stitched alligator straps are attached to the case with hinged lugs to assure a luxuriously comfortable fit on feminine wrists.


A STATELY CASE

The reference 7071R comes in an elegant, cushion-shaped case with rounded angles. This striking form can only be crafted by talented artisans. Its contemporary design is enriched by the warmth of 18K rose gold, the only precious metal in which the case is available.
The rectangular buttons that activate the chronograph functions are eminently ergonomic, as is the fluted crown used to wind the movement.


EXCELLENCE BASED ON THE PATEK PHILIPPE SEAL

All external elements the case, the dial, the strap and the precious stone settings are designed, crafted, and finished according to the very strict provisions of the Patek Philippe Seal, a unique promise of quality that applies to the watch in its entirety.

A MASTERPIECE IN THE LIMELIGHT

The sapphire-crystal case back reveals the beauty of the new CH 29-535 PS movement its elegant geometry, the graceful decorations, and the captivating choreography of its 269 parts. For the time being, this premiere is for ladies only. Men will have to exercise patience until the new chronograph movement, destined to become a legend, debuts in a version for them.


A SUPERBLY LEGIBLE DIAL

The face of the reference 7071R is available in silvery opaline or black with a guilloched pattern center. It has two subsidiary dials for the small seconds and for the 30-minute counter.
Both sub-dials are slightly offset beneath the center axis of the large hands. This unusual arrangement is emphasized by the asymmetric scales for the seconds and minutes. Leaf-shaped hour and minute hands in rose gold with luminescent coatings, elongated Roman numerals, the slender arrow-style chronograph hand, the fine baton hands for the subsidiary dials, and the railway track minute scale assure outstanding legibility.


FEMININE ACCENTS

The exclusive movement is highlighted by a mesmerizing precious stone complement : The reference 7071R displays 136 full cut round diamonds that embrace the round dial. Consummately set by master jewelers beneath the slightly domed sapphire-crystal glass, they radiate a fascinatingly prismatic firework of color that compliments the lady's wrist and adds a gentle touch of feminine mystique to this quintessentially technical watch.
