Think Pink!

If you remember the classic 1957 film Funny Face, you’ll definitely be familiar with the “Think Pink” song that was brilliantly performed by actress Kay Thompson. And with that in mind, this pink and sparkly 4899/900G – Calatrava timepiece from Patek Philippe will conjure visions of pastel dreams, with its rosy-hued alligator strap, meticulously placed diamonds and pink sapphires, and a delicately engraved feather motif on mother of pearl.
