  • Catalogue Essay

    Making a splash at Baselworld in 2015, Patek Philippe’s Calatrava Pilot Travel Time reference 5524G was an instant success which impressed connoisseurs around the world with its aviation-inspired aesthetics. The reference harkens back to Patek Philippe’s first pilot watch made in the 1930s, when a few prototypes were produced. Since its debut, the reference 5524G has continued to grow in popularity amongst the collector community, and is highly sought-after today.

    The reference 5524G, features two hour hands, blue hand for the local time and the skeletonized white hand to indicate home time. The dial also includes a local and home as well as day and night indicator, with oversized applied luminous numerals. Preserved exactly as it left the manufacturer three years ago, the watch remains double factory sealed, and comes complete with its certificate of origin, box, and accessories.

Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand.
