Patek Philippe’s reputation speaks for itself as one the most storied and prestigious brands in the history of watchmaking. One of Patek’s most long-lived and coveted collections is the Calatrava, which has been stealing hearts since 1932.
The Calatrava exudes class and elegance by employing a “less is more” approach, allowing its form to follow its function. This particular example, a reference 3992J produced in 1996, features a 18kt yellow gold case which measures 33 mm in diameter and a svelte 7 mm in thickness. The Clous de Paris aka “hobnail” bezel pattern adds a subtle point of visual intrigue. It is in excellent pre-owned condition, with minimal surface scratches evident on the case. Powering the watch is Patek Philippe’s in house automatic Caliber 240 movement, which is stamped with the prestigious Geneva seal – a mark reserved for Geneva-based Swiss movements with only the highest level of decoration and finishing. The piece comes with a black alligator strap, and a yellow gold PVD-plated pin buckle.
