  • Catalogue Essay

    - The Patek Philippe Calatrava collection has long stood as a symbol of excellence for the watchmaker. Characterized by clean lines and an elegant case design, the Calatrava lineage traces its roots back to the 1930s with the introduction of its first model, the reference 96.

    - In 2005, Patek Philippe unveiled the reference 5296, presenting a modernized interpretation in a sleek 38mm white gold case with a date display. In the following year, a variant with a pink gold case was introduced, paying homage to its vintage designs. This particular timepiece boasts a highly appealing sectorial design, executed in a captivating two-tone manner. The inclusion of the arabic 5-minute markers along the periphery further contributes to its classic vintage aesthetic.

    - A true embodiment of timeless purity, this Calatrava remains a coveted classic for years to come.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499.

Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
