Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref.2572

This is quite simply all you could ever desire from a dress watch!

A subtle, yet perfectly wearable 34mm size. A case executed in warm 18k yellow gold. Made to the highest standards by arguably the most desirable name out there: Patek Philippe.

This is a watch in the true Calatrava mold, just slightly beefed up. A minimalist design, loosely based on Bauhaus philosophy, with a sub-dial for the seconds hand. Patek Philippe positioned this line as an ever-so-slightly more sporty version of their traditional Calatravas.

This one has it all, extract of the archive, service papers fresh from Patek Phillipe. During the service, the dial has been replaced. But overall it is still a beauty, distinguised and classic.

In 1932, the year in which brothers Charles and Jean Stern acquired Patek Philippe, the name of the manufacture’s prestigious symbol, the Calatrava cross, was given to a watch collection. The first true ‘family’ of watches Patek Philippe had created, the Calatrava quickly became a classic and is still regarded today as the brand’s most iconic collection.

The design was inspired by the Bauhaus movement, a German school of Arts based on the belief that ‘less is more’ and ‘form follows function’. Since the purpose of a watch is to tell the time, these principles discouraged any embellishments which could detract from the time-telling.

The result was a watch that was at once beautiful and practical. Presented in a round case with a flat bezel and simple dial with baton indices, the art of omission in the debut model Ref. 96, came to characterize the Calatrava’s understated, yet timeless style.

The design has become a template for other brands. A simple, minimalist dress watch with a sub-dial for the seconds at six o’clock, is often referred to as a Calatrava watch, regardless of the brand. So while Patek did it first, it is perfectly reasonable to stumble upon a JLC Calatrava or a Vacheron Constantin Calatrava.
