  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time stands as a significant tribute to pilot watches, merging the brand's iconic elegance with the utilitarian charm of aviation timepieces.

    Launched in 2020 in a smaller, luxuriuous white gold 37.5mm case, the ref. 7234G caters to contemporary tastes that increasingly appreciate the elegance and wearability of more restrained dimensions. Boasting a distinctive aesthetic with its blue lacquered dial, luminous Arabic numerals, and a vintage-inspired "box-type" sapphire crystal, its functionality is further enhanced with a dual time zone feature, catering to the needs of globetrotters.

    Presented in brand new, unworn condition and carrying the elusive “Tiffany & Co.” signature at 6 o’clock, the present watch is not only fresh-to-market but also the first of its kind to appear at public auction. Consigned from the original owner, the watch is offered complete with all accompanying accessories.


  • 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.
