The world’s notion of the ideal woman has evolved dramatically throughout the years, particularly in the last two decades.  Though feminism and women’s rights still figure in many conversations, we can appreciate that in 2016, many women can become whomever they choose to be, capable of breaking glass ceilings and shaping the future. Just as the possibilities for women have progressed, so too have the tools designed for their needs. It’s no longer enough that a watch worn by a woman who leads simply be pretty—it also has to be reliable and, ideally, a piece that can transition seamlessly throughout the busy day.

Patek Philippe’s latest addition to its women’s collection, the Calatrava Timeless White, is considered the “blanc de blanc” of elegance. Living up to its name, this all-white, diamond-set mechanical ladies’ watch showcases a highly innovative yet timeless design. It is, after all, a modern take on one of the watchmaker’s best-known dress watches, the Calatrava, which dates back to 1932. A few welcome aesthetic tweaks include the setting of 44 brilliant-cut diamonds weighing approximately 0.52 carats into the edges of the watch’s dial, bringing together the classic Calatrava design with the ability to double as a jewelry piece and making it the perfect watch to take from day to night.

Framed by a lacquered white bezel, its dial’s polished surface features gold hour markers, filigreed minute markers, and slender leaf-shaped hands. Its mechanical caliber 215 PS movement guarantees impressive accuracy with a tolerance of -3/+2 seconds per day, surpassing the conventional rate specifications for mechanical watches. Available in 18-karat white or rose gold, the timepiece’s Top Wesselton rare white diamonds upgrade the Calatrava Timeless White from a power purchase to a precious heirloom made not just for one woman, but for generations of them.
