Debuted in 1996, the stunning Calatrava piece immediately gain attention and was awarded “Watch of the year”. Available in 2500 pieces in each metal: yellow, white and pink gold, as well as platinum, the model was seized in 2005. Powered by the calibre 315S QA, the ref. 5035 only requires adjustment once a year, it is no surprise that this intellectual design became a staple collection in Patek Philippe. A wide array of dial colors was available: black, white, silver and in rare quantities, salmon or blue. The present example bears one of the beloved rarity, the salmon dial. Elegant and full of charm, the warmth of the salmon hue compliments the white gold case with incredible balance. As a milestone timepiece of horology history, the present example in great condition accompanied with its original accessories definitely styles with magnetic personality.
