Patek Philippe Calatrava Mechanical Ivory Dial Leather Men's Watch 5227R-001

The 18K gold Dauphin shaped palms with two edges look amazing on this watch. This form of hands was commonly used from the 1950s and 1960s, like on the Omega Constellation pie-pans we showcased here lately, and perfectly match a dress watch.All this beauty — we have not even mentioned its perfectly crafted alligator strap and gorgeous gold buckle — comes at a cost of course. Although listing price is around $37K USD for the Patek Philippe Calatrava 5227, the market value is a bit lower and you will have the ability to detect them. The appearance and looks of this 39mm Calatrava 5227 are as sophisticated as the very first Calatrava (reference 96) versions in my personal opinion. Though true Calatrava aficionados possibly disagree on that. More important however for most readers out there, is how this view rates to more affordable alternatives. $30K USD will buy you an extremely beautiful Jaeger-LeCoultre watch in the Master Ultra-Thin set in platinum or some Girard-Perregaux 1966 and give you enough change for something sporty in the Rolex or Omega collection as well.However, we must remember that Patek Philippe has a loyal base of fans and collectors that chase these Calatrava watches. It is a strain on its own very. A serious Patek Philippe collector likely does not wonder about the other similar watches that he can buy for the price of a single Patek Philippe Calatrava 5227. You could state the Calatrava is a wristwatch which belongs at a Top 10 of iconic watches in order that respect it is just as collectible as a Nautilus, Royal Oak,Lange 1, Reverso etc.In the end, contrast is difficult for those who long for a Patek Philippe Calatrava 5227 and probably won’t pay for anything less. Something I could completely understand, as I’ve chased some other watches myself using a price tag that probably don’t make sense to a lot of others. It is not always about money, this Calatrava is one of those perfect examples.

Once I hear the name “Calatrava” I think about Patek Philippe, and once I think about Patek Philippe I think about heritage. Tradition in the sense of a watch significance a lot of things. It usually implies classic design, and often a retention of values your dad or grandfather would have probably recognized. They are safe bets for sporting or investing. Depending on your mood they feel boring or beautiful, and the top ones are almost always beautiful regardless of if you feel like wearing them or not.Now I say all of this for a reason. This really is to explain exactly why the Patek Philippe Calatrava isn’t just another dress watch. It’s but one of “the” dress watches whose lengthy history does not have to be replicated by me. Others knowledgeable about its lifespan are far better suited to this. So what is new about the Calatrava Ref. 5227 (5227G)? First, and quite significant, is that the size growth to 39mm wide. Finally a Calatrava big enough for more individuals. That is not to mention that the smaller variations are not nice, but there is something quite good to be said about this model at 39mm wide (which in most other conditions would be little). I suppose it all depends on the perspective.Patek understands that the core design of the watch has been replicated many times. Even by high-end competitors. So why purchase the Calatrava? You will find reasons above and outside of the Patek Philippe name on the dial. A fantastic explanation is the motion along with the detailing. Oh, and there is the new caseback. Patek Philippe seemingly spent a couple of years developing and refining an “invisible” hinged case back to the 5227.

Even the existence of a date screen can detract in the ideal balance and clarity of a dial. Absolutely nothing superfluous can be located on those gorgeously pure wristwatches. And every has roots that reach back into the 19th century. Ferdinand Adolph Lange founded the original A. Lange & Söhne at the little town of Glashütte at the Kingdom of Saxony (in what is now eastern Germany) in 1845. Lange developed the three-quarters plate and constructed pocket sequences famous for their high quality. They had been universally acknowledged as the finest timepieces made in Germany. The company is currently owned by the Richemont Group.Patek Philippe, which was founded in 1839, is independently owned.
