Fun and fabulously high-end, the Ref 7150 by Patek Philippe certainly turned heads during its debut at this year’s Baselworld. Part of the ladies collection, the chronograph is powered by the Calibre CH 29-535 PS. As the story goes, the history of this manual mechanical movement can be traced back to 2009 when the Geneva-based manufacture decided to create a watch endowed with a classic chronograph movement that would be more fitting for feminine wrists.

By 2016, the chronograph had ceased production. Two years later, the luxury Swiss watchmaker decided it was time to revive this vintage-inspired timepiece by replacing the previous cushion case with a timeless 38mm round case in rose gold paired with a row of 72 scintillating diamonds around the bezel and a shiny mink gray hand-stitched alligator strap with 27 diamonds on the prong buckle in matching rose gold.

Other additional vintage-inspired details to point out include a the silvery opaline dial with gold applied Breguet numerals and a pulsimeter scale located along the dial’s exterior. Flanking the crown of the watch are two guilloched pushers that control the central chronograph hand and the instantaneous 30-minute pusher located at 3 o’clock. This mechanical marvel can fully be admired via the sapphire-crystal caseback that features a chamfered flank which fits seamlessly with the contours of the watch.
