  • Catalogue Essay

    First released in 1997, the Patek Philippe Travel Time ref. 4864 was the very first complicated lady’s wristwatch manufactured by the firm. Featuring a Calatrava style case made by Favre & Perret SA, it features an elegantly crafted coin-edged bezel that was quite unusual at the time. Measuring 29mm diameter, the case is further adorned by two pushers to the left side of the caseband tipped with cabochon gems to adjust the hour hand of the additional time zone. Powered by the cal. 215 PS FUS, it is essentially the same caliber as the ref. 5034, the men’s edition of the complication at the time. The reference was made in yellow gold, pink gold and white gold with matching Breguet numerals with some gem-set examples. The production of the reference was seized in 2005.

    The present example Patek Philippe ref. 4864 in yellow gold from circa 1998 is preserved in excellent overall condition and was probably worn no more than a handful of times throughout all these years. Complete with its Original Certificate of Origin, this chic and elegant Travel Time by Patek Philippe is the quintessential timepiece for lady jetsetters seeking for a classic and quality travel companion.
