Its inimitable blue color recalls the livery of American fighter planes in the 1930s. The large applied Arabic numerals in white gold and the broad baton hands in blued steel have a luminescent coating that assures excellent legibility around the clock.
The 300 watches of this limited series are endowed with the self- winding caliber 240 HU movement.
The elegant 38,5 mm timepiece has a white-gold case with a smooth, chamfered bezel and a dial with an opaline blue center: its embossed motif depicts the same Manhattan skyline that adorns the center of the Ref. 5531.
The city disk and the 24-hour disk (with day/night segments) permanently display the time in all 24 time zones.
The relief-embossed skyline of New York adorns the opaline blue dial center just like the Ref. 5230 men’s model. It is illuminated by the fire of the bezel set with 62 flawless rare white Top Wesselton diamonds (~0.82 ct) complemented by 27 diamonds (~0.21 ct) on the prong buckle that secures the dark blue alligator leather strap.
The lavishly finished self-winding caliber 240 HU movement can be admired through a sapphire-crystal case back with the engraved inscription “PATEK PHILIPPE NEW YORK 2017”.
It features an ultra-thin white-gold Officer’s-style case with straight lugs and a mother-of-pearl dial with diamond hour markers.
It is available in two limited-edition versions of 75 watches each:
one with a white mother-of-pearl dial and a shiny peacock blue alligator leather strap (Ref. 7200/50-010),
the other with a blue mother-of-pearl dial and a shiny blue-gray alligator leather strap (Ref. 7200/50- 011)
The Patek Philippe Ladies’ Minute Repeater Ref. 7000/250 New York 2017 Special Edition stands out with a blue enamel dial that sparkles with the fire of diamond hour markers. Its white-gold case features a “Flamme” setting composed of 160 flawless Top Wesselton diamonds (~0.64 ct).
This setting technique, proprietary to Patek Philippe, amplifies the radiance of the precious stones.
The ultra-thin self-winding caliber R 27 PS sounds the hours, quarter hours, and minutes on two gongs when the slide in the case flank is actuated.
