Patek Philippe's Calatrava family has gained admiration as the essence of timeless and sophisticated Swiss watchmaking and design. A perfect representation of a timeless watch, the Calatrava is a design that has been crowned by many collectors as the blueprint for the ultimate dress watch. With a minimalistic design that allows timekeeping down to its purest essence, the Calatrava has become the icon of Patek Philippe since 1932.
