Description: 215 PS LU Caliber. The Patek Philippe 7121/200G Moon Phases bears all the prestigious Lineage of a complicated Patek. A mechanical coup for female horophiles is that the calibre keeping time is the smallest complicated movement that Patek Philippe makes: the manually wound 215 PS LU caliber with moon phases and small seconds. You can see it ticking away through the curved sapphire case back.

Blue Sunburst Dial
The Ref. 7121/200G certainly has its bona fides in terms of mechanics and history, but what about aesthetics? If you’ve got a Ferrari engine in a rusted-out and dented 1982 Toyota Corolla, it just doesn’t have the same appeal. Fortunately, the Moon Phases won’t have any problems filling her dance card. While the previous model offered a yellow gold case and silvery-coloured grained dial, this one comes in a white gold frame and an inky blue, sunburst dial that resembles the colour of an evening sky. The sunburst treatment gives a cool shimmery effect depending upon the angle of the light.

Both the Breguet hour indexes and round minute markers are crafted in white gold, as are the pear-shaped hands. At 6 o’clock is where the complication sets in. The aperture displays the phases of the moon to an accuracy of one day in a century plus 22 years. Contemplate that: If you bought the Moon Phases now and (someone) kept the watch wound, it would outlast you in accurately keeping track of the moon phases.

The dial is framed by an orbit of 132 brilliant-cut diamonds set in a staggered pattern called “Dentelle”, which is a lace-style setting technique offsetting two rows of stones. The sparks coming off the bezel make it look like there are more rows of diamonds than there are. Now stick with me here for a second. If you look at the dial near your eyeline, it sort of feels like you’re standing on the lip of a cosmic fountain and falling into its depths.
