With roots in the 19th Century and founded by Antoni Patek and Adrien Philippe, Patek Philippe has long been synonymous with the absolute top-tier Swiss watchmaking, serving Heads of State, Nobel price winners, and a myriad of personalities from the world of science, culture, religion, entertainment, and government, including royals all over the planet. From the practical steel Nautilus models to the elegant Calatrava watches, from their exquisite chronographs to the Henry Graves Supercomplication, Patek Philippe reigns supreme as a maker of mechanical masterpieces of timeless charm and undoubted investment value. As their 1996 slogan goes, “You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation”.
This beautiful Calatrava model was delivered new to us on September 12th 2016 at the Patek Philippe Salon in London, and has remained in our possession until today. The watch comes with its Certificate of Origin, original invoice, leather sleeve, and other ancillary paperwork
