WATCHES THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME
Watchuwant is now WatchBox! Subscribe for the best luxury watch content. Since 1932, the Patek Philippe Calatrava has stood as *the* icon of the most iconic of luxury watchmakers. While Rolex has the volume market, Patek holds the high ground with a history and pedigree that is second to none. Celebrate the 2014 Patek Philippe 175th anniversary with this Calatrava 5119G. Patek Philippe Calatravas are the essence of the Geneva giant. Tasteful, timeless, and universally respected, Calatravas also offer variety. Since the name "Calatrava" was bestowed on this restrained dress watch during the 1980s, the "hobnail bezel" version shown here has been a mainstay of the lineup. This Calatrava 5119G is a 36mm poem in 18-karat white gold. Its delicate lacquered white dial, black oxidized feuille hands, and Roman numerals kick modern upstarts to the curb. Watches like this one built the modern legend of Patek Philippe. "Under the hood," a Patek Philippe in-house caliber 215 movement bears the highest degree of fine finish and mechanical refinement. This movement measures an exquisite 2.55mm thick, and it was the first modern 28,800 VpH movement to receive Patek Philippe's signature free-sprung Gyromax balance wheel. Thanks to this innovation, the watch runs with accuracy befitting the caliber of its aesthetics.
