Object of Desire: Patek Philippe's Chronograph for Women

By T: The New York Times Style Magazine Singapore

 
 

When you consider that this watch is Patek Philippe's only chronograph in its watch collection for ladies, you can be sure the Genevan manufacture will pull out all the stops. The new reference 7150R/250R-001 replaces 2009's reference 7071 Ladies First Chronograph, and gets a new face: an elegant 38-mm round case in rose gold featuring a bezel adorned with a row of 72 diamonds.

 

 

The timeless style is emphasised by vintage details such as the prominently fluted strap lugs, the round, guilloched pushers, and the gently cambered sapphire-crystal “box” glass. The silvery opaline dial sets the stage for Breguet hour and minute hands in rose gold and numerals, also in rose gold, that make the watch eminently legible.

 

The manually wound caliber CH 29-535 PS movement is designed with an instantaneous 30-minute counter. The watch is worn on a shiny mink grey alligator leather strap secured with a rose-gold prong buckle.
