Certain occasions call for a watch that is elegant, clean, and of the highest possible quality. One watch takes the proverbial crown in that category: the Patek Philipe Calatrava.In 1932, Patek introduced the ref. 96 Calatrava dress watch. Named after the Calatrava cross, the symbol of the medieval Spanish Military Order of Calatrava and Patek Philippe's corporate emblem, this watch is the blueprint for every dress watch that came after it.Putting practicality and functionality front and center, a Calatrava is traditionally a time-only watch with an understated round case. This ref. 5022 features a 33.5 mm 18k yellow-gold case with elegant thin lugs and a stepped bezel. The white dial contains an intricate guilloché engraved pattern, elegant applied 18k yellow-gold Roman numerals as well as bold painted hash marks for the minutes, and a recessed decentral seconds counter at the 6 o’clock position. Together with the thin black feuille hands, the watch exudes a wonderful understated elegance. Calatrava’s traditionally come on chic exotic leather straps. This watch, however, was delivered with a luxurious 18k yellow-gold mesh bracelet with a lovely concealed butterfly clasp.This reference 5022 dates back to the early 2000s and runs on the ultra-thin manual winding caliber 215 PS movement, giving the watch an elegantly slim profile. The watch is in excellent condition and comes with an extract from the Patek Philippe archives.
