Following the relaunch of the Nautilus men’s collection in 2006, Patek Philippe presents a new Nautilus ladies’ line for 2009. Design and technical elements from the men’s line carry over. The new ladies’ Nautilus models are available in 18K white or rose gold with precious diamonds (Ref. 7010/1) or with a satin-finished bezel (Ref. 7011/1), and with silvery white or gray dials. The case measures 32mm in diameter and is water-resistant to 60 meters. The diamond bezel contains 46 flawless Top Wesselton round diamonds totaling about 0.73 ct. The new Nautilus for ladies is powered by the caliber E 23 SC quartz movement. This manufacture movement is crafted in Patek’s Geneva workshops and its mechanical parts such as wheels, arbors, and levers, are made with the same care and attention to detail as the mechanical movements signed by Patek Philippe. The ladies’ Nautilus is priced at $26,800 without diamonds and $33,700 with diamonds.
Patek is also introducing the ladies’ Calatrava Ref. 4897 R in rose gold with a chocolate dial and 72 Top Wesselton round diamonds. This model replaces Ref. 4896G with the white gold case and blue dial. The ladies’ Calatrava is powered by Patek Philippe’s manually wound caliber 215 mechanical movement. This ultra-thin caliber measures 2.55 mm in height and 21.9mm in diameter.
