Calatrava Yellow Gold (5227J-001)
The Patek Philippe Calatrava watch (ref. 5227J-001) features a mechanical automatic movement; ivory lacquered dial with yellow gold applied hour markers; date aperture at 3 o'clock; center seconds hand; sapphire-crystal case back protected by an invisibly-hinged dust cover; and 39mm, 18k yellow gold case on a hand-stitched, shiny chocolate brown alligator strap with an 18k yellow gold ardillon buckle.
For decades, the Calatrava – the prototype of the classic round wristwatch, including its Officer's style variations with dust covers over the case back – has ranked among the most iconic creations of Patek Philippe. Uniting the key characteristics of this watch family, the new Calatrava Ref. 5227, launched in 2013, now features a display back protected with a separate dust cover. The special twist: the entire hinge is on the inside of the cover, making it invisible even to the connoisseur.
