  • Catalogue Essay

    Patek Philippe’s Calatrava Pilot Travel Time took its inspiration from early 20th century air travel pioneers and the oversized wristwatches of those early navigators. Released at Baselworld in 2015, the reference 5524 at first met some resistance from the collecting community as it was a 21st century dual-time wristwatch made for 21st century tastes and not merely an iteration of a more classic offering. Sentiments quickly changed, and the watch became sought after for its thoroughly modern functionality as a companion piece for world travelers.

    The 42mm diameter case is dominated by two large correctors found at the 8 and 10 o’clock positions. These allow for easy time-changing capability and feature patent-pending safety locks to ensure the time is not accidentally changed. The white gold indices are filled with Superluminova, increasing the legibility of the oversized Arabic numerals. A bold sword hand indicates local time, and a second, skeletonized hand shows home time. In 2018 Patek Philippe issued a new model in rose gold, and a lady’s version, reference 7234R. Today, the reference is firmly entrenched in the Patek Philippe anthology.

    Complete with its guarantee and all original accessories, and presented in excellent condition from the original owner, the opportunity to purchase this forward-thinking watch from Patek Philippe should not be missed.

    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.

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.
