  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2015, the Patek Philippe’s Calatrava Pilot Travel Time took its inspiration from the early 20th century when global travel was emerging and pilots used oversized tool watches to assist in navigation. The functionality of the watch was thoroughly modern and the perfect companion piece for travellers on the go. The 42mm diameter case was dominated by two large time correctors found at the 8 and 10 o’clock positions. Designed with optimal practicality in mind, these enabled for easy time changing capability and featured patent-pending safety locks to insure the time was not accidentally changed. The white gold indices were Superluminova filled, with a skeleton hand to indicate home time, and a sword hand for the local time. Since its launch, the reference garnered more acceptability and in 2018 Patek Philippe issued a new model in rose gold, and a lady’s version, reference 7234R.

    Effortlessly resonates with modern taste, the present watch is fresh-to-the-market from the original owner and is in attractive condition. The watch has a sporty masculine appeal and in time may become an icon of horology.

    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.
