Where innovation meets tradition

We take a look at the stunning Ref. 7122 Calatrava ladies’ wristwatch by Patek Philippe, available from Michael Spiers in Truro.

There are some companies that put the pursuit of excellence at the very top of the agenda, combining highly-skilled workmanship, the finest materials and chic design to wonderful effect. One such example is Patek Philippe of Geneva, producer of world-class timepieces since 1851. Patek Philippe holds innovation in as high regard as it does heritage, producing watches that are as functional as they are beautiful.

Here we take a look at the ref. 7122 Calatrava wristwatch for ladies. Effortlessly exuding timeless elegance, the beautifully engineered watch bears all the hallmarks of a classic Patek Philippe, while being a modern and wearable timepiece for the 21st Century.

Available in 18k white gold or rose gold, the 7122 is enhanced by 44 individual white diamonds inset into the bezels, making it a fine piece of jewellery in its own right. Yet despite its abundance of precious stones and metal, it remains confidently understated, a watch that’s self-assured enough to leave an impression without screaming of its presence.

The 7122 is available to view, alongside a range of other Patek Philippe watches, at Michael Spiers in Lemon Street, another independent family business that prides itself on quality and tradition. As Director Adam Spiers tells us: “The success of Patek Philippe is based on family values and heritage… similar in so many ways to that of Michael Spiers. My late father would be so proud of the association between the two companies.”
