Patek Philippe Calatrava 5022G Luxury Watch Review

This Patek Philippe Calatrava 5022G is the picture of classical Patek Philippe elegance. Between its white gold feuille hands and numerals, extraordinary two-tone guilloche dial, the small seconds at 6 o'clock, and the delightfully thin case, this 5022G is what Geneva's finest is all about. Patek Philippe introduced the original Calatrava, the "ref. 96" shortly after the Stern family's purchase of the then-failing concern. That model helped to revive the flagging fortunes of Patek, and its descendants remain iconic cornerstones of the Patek Philippe model line. While recent Patek Philippe styling efforts have left some collectors scratching their heads, there's little to fault in the 5022G. Its dial is balanced, and its lugs are fine. The combination of double-stepped bezel with a brilliant two-tone “clous de Paris” guilloche dial creates tremendous wrist presence. The power of this watch stems from its combination of subtle visual innovations. A stepped bezel in white gold adds muscularity and masculinity to the soft lines of the circular case; a “piano key” minute track in silvered circular graining envelops the dial center; the anthracite center dial boasts applied white gold Roman numerals and an intricate web of rose-engine guilloche that mesmerizes with its complexity. This Patek Philippe 5022G is a serendipitous union of qualities that will endear it to connoisseurs. More than a handsome timepiece, this Patek Philippe Calatrava offers the individuality inherent in an unusual dial, but its unmistakable status as a Patek Philippe Calatrava ensures instant collector respect and enduring value retention. Individuality that commands universal respect is the best of both worlds, and this Patek Philippe 5022G offers this rare combination of virtues. Needless to say, with a total thickness of less than 7mm, this one slips easily beneath any dress cuff or sleeve. The Patek Philippe Calatrava 5022G is a made-to-order black tie machine. Although a 33mm watch, the nominal measurement can be dismissed as academic; the 5022G reads as a 35-36mm on the wrist. Inside the 18-karat white gold case, a Patek Philippe manufacture movement - caliber 215 - beats away at 28,800 Vph. It's a true Geneva Seal gem, and given Patek's 2009 transition to its proprietary "Patek Philippe Seal," this 5022G is a throwback to a glorious - an bygone - era. thewatchbox.com is pleased to offer this Patek Philippe Calatrava 5022G in outstanding condition.
