Basel 2013- The new Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5227
Patek Philippe merged the key external elements of the Calatrava collection and its Officer’s models to present the new Calatrava Ref. 5227, a unique masterpiece of the casemaker’s art. Its 18K-gold case has a diameter of 39 mm and exhibits the typical Calatrava contours with elegantly curved lugs.
The Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5227 most exclusive feature is it’s display back, protected by a separate dust cover with a totally concealed hinge. As soon as the case is opened, it becomes evident that this hinge alone calls for the ultimate in craftsmanship on the part of the casemaker. The same applies to the elongated flutes that extend from the case flank into the lugs, enhancing the slender silhouette of the case. Each of these flutes is carved out of the gold and then, as all other case parts, polished by hand to a mirror sheen. The exceptionally elegant case accommodates a self-winding movement in a class of its own. It is the legendary caliber 324 SC, now endowed with the innovative and patented Spiromax® balance spring made of Silinvar®.
Yet again, eight decades after the 1932 debut of the original Calatrava Ref. 96, Patek Philippe reasserts the timeless quality of this legendary watch collection as well as the creativity of the manufacture in leveraging its traditions and heritage. It is available in three models in 18K yellow, white, or rose gold.
