  • Catalogue Essay

    Released at the Baselworld 2000, the Patek Philippe Calatrava ref. 5115G features a classic manually wound 1970s inspired cal. 215 PS AIG.3. With a rather clean and simple appeal, the reference offers much more than that. Featuring an off-white enamel dial with painted Roman numerals, the bezel is further embossed with an attractive “Clous de Paris” style hobnail pattern.

    The present example ref. 5115G is offered in excellent overall condition with minimal signs of wear. Furthermore, it is also charmed with its Certificate of Origin and fitted presentation box. A truly underappreciated Calatrava reference and a great timepiece to go along with a black-tie outfit.

  • Artist Biography

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. 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.
