  • Catalogue Essay

    - Since its introduction with the reference 96 in 1932, the Calatrava collection from Patek Philippe has remained a timeless classic that transcends trend changes and continues to attract collectors across all generations.

    - The present reference 3820, crafted in elegant pink gold, showcases matching pink gold hands and is adorned with applied Breguet numerals. The Breguet numerals are typically reserved for special releases and esteemed timepieces, emphasizing its exclusivity and importance.

    - Adding a touch of sophistication and rarity, the teardrop lugs on this timepiece contribute to its refined aesthetic, a feature seldom seen in their contemporary watch lineup.

    - The ultra-thin caliber 177, measuring a mere 1.77mm in thickness, and the screw-down case back are deserving of credit. These elements enable the watch to achieve an impressively slim case profile of only 5mm, resulting in a remarkably comfortable fit on any wrist. With its classic and elegant design, this watch would make a splendid addition to any collector's ensemble, particularly those seeking a superb dress watch.

Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    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. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. 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.
