  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe’s Calatrava Pilot Travel Time was initially released at Baselworld in 2015. Whilst at first it was met with resistance from the collecting community, sentiments have since then definitely changed making it now a sought-after timepiece because of its modern attire, functionality and 21st century looks.

    At 42mm in diameter the case is sporty and present on the wrist, however retaining a subtle Calatrava design. The two large correctors present on the left size of the case allow for a quick and easy adjustment of the local time indicator, identifiable by the bold sword minute and hour hand. The second, skeletonized sword hand instead shows home time.

    The dial allows for easy readability thanks to the gold-applied oversized Arabic numerals contrasting on a darker varnished dial. Present on the dial at 9 and 3 o'clock one can find two small day/night apertures for both Local and Home time zone. The local date can be found on the subdial at the 6 o'clock position.

    The timepiece houses the well-known self-winding caliber 324 S C FUS, also found on the reference 5164 travel time from the Aquanaut collection.

    In barely worn condition, this timepiece definitely exudes sportiness and adventurous vibrations. In tandem with its incredible utility and easy legibility, the timepiece is definitely a must have for the visionaries of the 21st century.
