Today, we will analyze and detail the current model of the Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica and conclude this series of three-part articles. After reading the first two articles, “Blueprint Ref.96” and “Important Models in History,” you will agree that modesty and low-key Calatrava is one of the most iconic formal watches in the history of watchmaking, Dress is the type of watch plays an important role. Incredibly, the classic design of the Calatrava series has remained essentially unchanged for about 85 years since its introduction in 1932. Although we have seen many changes over the years, the core principles of the Calatrava line are consistent and good news for both antique watch enthusiasts and new buyers.


According to Patek Philippe official website information, the current brand offers 34 different models of Calatrava watch (including different materials, does not include complex functions). However, only the basic features are included in the Calatrava classification on the Patek Philippe official website, but the series includes more complex models such as the Ref.5235G three-pin Almanac and the Ref.5524G flight time travel watch. This article will focus on six very distinctive special models to demonstrate the unity and diversity of the Patek Philippe Calatrava collection.


Patek Philippe Calatrava Collection Ref.5196 watch
In the existing Calatrava product line, the two closest models to the original Ref.96 watch are Ref.5196 and Ref.5296, respectively, as shown by the same “96” in the reference number. Ref.5196 watch diameter of 37 mm, slightly larger size, more modern, called the perfect example of elegant simplicity. Despite the larger size, the case still follows the same design with a “coin rim” flat bezel and integrated lugs. The dial layout is basically the same as the original Ref.96 watch, with the central toffee hour hand, the angled facets and ancillary small seconds.


The difference is that the small seconds of the Ref.5196 watch is above the 6 o’clock hour marker while the small seconds of the original Ref.96 watch is embedded between the 5 o’clock and 7 o’clock time scales. Equipped with a Caliber 215 PS hand-wound movement, the movement is only 2.55 mm thick and offers a stable 28,800 hph (4 Hz) frequency. Ref.5196 watch offers gold, platinum, rose gold and platinum four versions, including platinum plate with a silver gray dial, and decorative gold Breguet inlaid with the time scale (reminiscent of several versions of the Ref.570 wrist Table), small seconds disk also added digital scale circle, and slightly different from the other three versions.


Patek Philippe Calatrava Collection Ref.5296 watch
Ref.5296 best luxury replica watches available in four versions, made of two kinds of case material and a combination of two dial designs. Ref.5296-010 watch is the essence of the Central Second Hand Ref.96. Of course, Ref.5296 watch equipped with Caliber 324 S C self-winding movement, and equipped with Gyromax® balance wheel and Spiromax® hairspring. And Ref.5196 watch the same, Ref.5296 watch dial decorative center hour pointer and prism faceted time scale.


Compared with the Ref.5196 watch, the main improvement of the Ref.5296 watch is the addition of a date display window at the 3 o’clock position, which is clearly not available on the original Ref.96 watch. Ref.5296-001 watch is equipped with silver-gray color dial, using a very stylish partition design, and decorative blue scale scale and time-sharing second hand. According to Patek Philippe, the design of this watch is inspired by the 19.9 Ref.96 SC watch. Ref.5296-010 watch and Ref.5296-001 watch diameter are 38 mm, respectively, available in white and rose gold versions.


Patek Philippe Calatrava Collection Ref.5116 and Ref.5119 watch
Ref.5116 watch and Ref.5119 watch is Ref.3520 watch the modern embodiment. Launched in 1973, the Ref.3520 was the first Calatrava watch to feature a Paris-studded bezel, and has since become a staple of the Calatrava collection. The Ref.5116 and Ref.5119 are both 36mm dia and have a Caliber 215 PS hand-wound movement (the same as the Ref.5196).


Ref.5119 watch offers gold, white gold and rose gold version, with white lacquer dial with Roman numerals. Ref.5116 watch is only available in rose gold version, with a pure enamel dial with Roman numerals, make this best swiss replica watches more unique than the other models (of course, the corresponding price is more expensive).
Patek Philippe Calatrava Collection Ref.6006G watch


The Ref.6006G is one of the newest releases by Patek Philippe at the 2017 Baselworld and is the third of a series that debuted in the early 1990s. Ref.6006G before the watch is introduced in 2005 Ref.6000 watch; before, is introduced in 1991 Ref.5000 watch. Without doubt, the Ref.6006G is one of the most unorthodox models in the Calatrava line. The watch’s dial layout is very unique, hour, minute and date are used to display the pointer, from the inside out with three corresponding scale circle.


Another unique feature of this watch is the small second handset, which is unusually placed between 4 and 5 o’clock due to the built-in Caliber 240 PS self-winding movement, which is celebrating its birth 40 this year Anniversary celebration. Black and white dial contrast, legible, still revealing all the Calatrava watch design, style-compliant features Bauhaus concept. The Ref.6006G has a white gold case 39 mm in diameter and is very modern and suitable for wear to today’s standards, but may not have the same eternal charm as other Calatrava models.


Patek Philippe Calatrava Series Ref.5180 / 1R hollow watch
As mentioned above, the 2017 is the 40th anniversary of the Patek Philippe Caliber 240 PS self-winding movement. As part of the celebration, the brand also introduced the new Calatrava Collection Ref.5180 / 1R openwork watch at Baselworld, placing it in a place that everyone can see and admire. The movement components, and even the bridge above the main barrel, were elaborately hollowed out by Patek Philippe craftsmen to reveal the winding clockwork beneath the Calatrava cross pattern. It took more than a week to achieve such hollow transparency, and the carver spent more than 130 hours finishing the delicate vines and arabesques of the rest of the movement.


The Patek Philippe Genève Patek Philippe Genève logo is engraved on the barrel case around the Calatrava cross pattern, and the cross pattern itself is trimmed. Then, the finished intact caliber engraved movement needs plating rose gold, and then polished to echo the case and bracelet. Finally, but also for the entire movement set 18K rose gold ring. The ring frame is hollowed out into 12 spokes, acting as a time scale. Ref.5180 / 1R Perhaps not the humble, understated Calatrava we are familiar with, but definitely a stunning piece of art.


Patek Philippe Calatrava Series Ref.5524G flight time travel watch
Finally, let’s talk about the most controversial Calatrava (and even Patek Philippe) timepieces in recent years: the Ref.5524G flight time travel watch. When the 2015 Baselworld Watch 2015 was last rolled out, the watch sparked controversy. For many, it is hard to think of it as a Calatrava watch because the Ref.5524G case (18K white gold instead of stainless steel) has a diameter of 42 mm, dual time zones and day and night display, Tuning button. In fact, the military wind top swiss replica watches also has a precedent in the history of Patek Philippe, the original Ref.96 watch variant will be able to see the military wind dial.


At the same time, we can still see many Bauhaus elements from Ref.5524G, such as unique fonts, ease of use and practicability of the overall design. It may not look like the traditional Calatrava watch we are familiar with, but still follow many of the same principles and norms. Ref.5524G watch equipped with Caliber CH 324 S C FUS self-winding movement, which provides 45-hour power reserve and decorative Patek Philippe brand mark, to ensure that exquisite decoration and high precision. As Ref.5524G is a true Calatrava watch, I believe that after reading the series of articles, each watchmate has its own answer.

Patek Philippe Calatrava Replica Ref.96

Patek Philippe is almost no need to introduce the brand. In the watchmaking world, the brand is known for producing high quality, extraordinary complexity and highly sought after timepieces.

For example, humble low-key Calatrava watch, also known as the model is a formal dress.

A brief history of Calatrava
The idea that Patek Philippe is in financial crisis today seems incomprehensible and even absurd. The Swiss watchmaker has proved itself immune to the ebb and flow of the industry in the past two years and the downturn has failed to stop the brand momentum. However, this (in a financial crisis) is exactly what the Patek Philippe faced in the early 20th century. Despite numerous patents and awards, and a broad client base, including some of the most famous collectors of the time in the world, the company was in trouble.


Jean Stern and Charles Stern
Jean Stern and Charles Stern became the savior of Patek Philippe, the brothers in 1932 acquired the company’s controlling stake. Prior to this, their family already owned the Fabrique de Cadrans Stern Frères, a factory that supplies dials to Patek Philippe. The brothers know that to stabilize the situation, there is a need to introduce a simple, mainstream watch that will make Patek Philippe timepieces attractive not only to high-end collectors, but while still maintaining the brand’s design and manufacturing excellence and reputation for excellence. Their solution is the Patek Philippe Calatrava Series Reference 96 watch.


Patek Philippe Calatrava Series Reference 96 watch
In the early 1930s, the watch was still relatively new, but the best replica watches review became popular quickly after it was widely used in the First World War. In the tide of the times, the watch has become a practical and reliable tool, even for those far away from the battlefield. In the meantime, with the advent of cars and airlines, the pocket watches, which are closely linked to the railways, become increasingly obsolete. Accuracy and reliability are the buzzwords of the time, surpassing design and aesthetics. Recognizing this market shift, Patek Philippe introduced a timepiece that perfectly combines precision with prestige.
Calatrava A Calatrava Cross originating from the ornate Calatrava Cross. In 1158, for the first time in a war against the Moors and defending the Calatrava fortress, a knight regiment used the emblem on march flags. On April 27, 1887, the Calatrava Cross was registered as a trademark and registered with Patek Philippe, but it was not until the 1960s that the symbol appeared more regularly on the crown and movement of the Patek Philippe watch. The series, named after Calatrava, shows its importance to the brand and has indeed played an important role since its inception.


1940s Patek Philippe Calatrava Series Reference 96 Watch Advertising
Patek Philippe Calatrava Series Reference 96 watch is a symbol of low-key elegant, but also by many as a blueprint for the ultimate dress table, but also the first introduction of digital numbers Patek Philippe watch. Inspired by the Bauhaus-style principle of compliance, David Minney’s minimalist design simplifies the luxury replica watches for sale to the purest of essentials. No extra detail, no overstatement, and since its introduction in 1932, its concept has remained almost unchanged over the past 85 years. It is no coincidence that antique Calatrava watches are still sought after by collectors. However, before I discuss it in detail, I think it is necessary to find out about the Bauhaus Institute in order to fully understand why the original design is everlasting.


After the First World War, architect Walter Gropius founded an unorthodox art school in Weimar, Germany, in 1919, which was closed 14 years later (1933, one year after the Calatrava series was launched). The core idea is the unified concept of design in all aspects of life, that is, art and industrial design can be unified. The focus is on functionality through a simplified geometry that allows new designs to be copied easily without cutting the end-user experience. The college teaches students to focus on practicality and necessity while focusing on functionality and ease of use. It also extends to typography, which is seen as a practical means of communication and artistic expression, first of all emphasizing visual clarity.


Understanding these, the Bauhaus effect on the design elements of the David Penney Patek Philippe Calatrava Reference 96 watch is also evident. First, the 31 mm diameter round case reflects the shape of the internal movement and the passage of time. Case is only 9 mm thick, with a smooth bezel and snap back. At the same time, the lugs are not welded but integrated into a three-piece case with a gradual taper to ensure a perfect fit to your wrists and comfortable fit. This type of architecture is considered commonplace today, but much of this is due to the far-sightedness of the Reference 96 watch as it elevates the lugs from insignificant footnotes to an integral part of the overall design.
However, what sets the Patek Philippe Calatrava Series Reference 96 apart from the rest is the minimalist modern dial design. Like the case, the dial avoids the complex finishing touches of the previous Art Deco era and reflects the philosophy of obedience to the Bauhaus form. Focus on the clearest, most attractive way to show time, and only time. In the original version, a gold trapezoidal hour marker was attached to the outer edge of the dial, a small seconds dial at 6 o’clock, and two pointy faceted gold tweezers to indicate hourly information. If the layout looks familiar, it’s because it has been repeated thousands of times by Patek Philippe and those trying to emulate the style of the former.


Patek Philippe Calatrava Series Reference 96 watch equipped with a diameter of 12 points of the movement
Original Patek Philippe Calatrava Series Reference 96 watch equipped with a product movement, the movement diameter of 12 points. Previously, Patek Philippe had been buying movements from Jaeger-LeCoultre, but that changed quickly after the brothers Stern and Charles Stern. Since 1934, the Jaeger-LeCoultre movement has been replaced by a Patek Philippe self-made movement of 12 “diameter 120. At that time, Patek Philippe’s technical department was headed by Jean Pfister and the diameter of 12” 120 homemade Movement, is the first R & D results of the technical department. However, it is said that some early wristwatch applications are still the old movement, those movements probably acquired the remaining inventory. This is not uncommon in the field of antique watches, after all, the implementation of unified norms at that time is less than what it is today.
