  • Patek Philippe Ref. 5320G Perpetual Calendar Hands-On

    One of the most interesting introductions from Patek Philippe this year was the all-new Ref. 5320G Perpetual Calendar, which we wrote about last month. Distinguished by its three-tiered lugs, which were inspired by historical Ref. 2405, the 5320 is powered by familiar automatic perpetual calendar movement – caliber 324 S Q. Presented in a sleek […]

  • Patek Philippe Calatrava Squelette Hands-On

    Patek Philippe’s automatic caliber 240 is 40 years old this year, and to celebrate, a new skeletonized version of the movement has been created. Already offered in skeletonized variations since 2008, a special new version of the Patek Philippe Calatrava “Squelette” was introduced at Baselworld 2017, back in March. The new timepiece features a 39 […]

  • Patek Philippe debuts two new Aquanauts for 20th Anniversary

    This year marks the 20th anniversary of Patek Philippe’s other sports watch – not to be confused with the Nautilus – the Aquanaut. As a tribute, Patek Philippe released two new versions at Baselworld, that will go on sale later this year. One represents the first men’s Aquanaut to be offered in white gold. The […]

  • Baselworld 2017: Patek Philippe Ref. 5320G Perpetual Calendar

    In 1925, Patek Philippe debuted Ref. 97975, the world’s first wristwatch with a perpetual calendar. For almost a century, the Swiss watchmaker has continued to build on their reputation for producing perpetual calendar timepieces, which automatically indicate months with 28, 30, and 31 days and every four years also recognizes the 29th of February as […]

  • Collector: Patek Philippe Ref. 5550P Advanced Research Perpetual Calendar

    This is a wristshot of a very rare Patek Philippe I saw at SIHH last week, a Ref. 5550P. Originally launched at Baselworld 2011, the watches are finally reaching collectors now. The Patek Philippe Advanced Research 5550P is the fourth in a series of watches equipped with Patek’s advanced silicium components. Unlike the annual calendars […]

    Patek Philippe has just unveiled a new version of their iconic Calatrava Ref. 5227. The new timepiece features a solid dust cover protecting its clear case back. This “hunter” or “officer’s” case back is unique on the market in that is has invisible hinges. Furthermore, the solid case back, on top of the sapphire caseback, […]

  • The purist Patek Philippe Calatrava in white gold

    Sometimes the most basic things in life are the most beautiful. Patek Philippe’s Calatrava 5196 does not have a chronograph, a perpetual calendar, or even a date function. Yet, it exudes the same attention to detail as the most complicated timepieces in the collection. It has the understated elegance that Patek Philippe timepieces are world-renowned […]

The estimate is $250-$350K. Notably, the same reference in platinum is also available for sale on eBay right now, with a “buy it now” of $296,999. Furthermore, […]

  • EDITORIAL: The Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time

    The Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref. 5524 is easily the most polarizing timepiece Patek Philippe has released in the past decade. At 42 mm in diameter, it’s big by Patek standards. Not to mention it is a pilot watch, with two pushers mounted atypically on the left side of the case. Clearly a departure from […]

  • Hands-On with the new rose gold Nautilus

    At Baselworld 2015, for the first time ever, Patek Philippe introduced a “Jumbo” Nautilus in rose gold. The Nautilus 5980/1 comes in rose gold, but this is the first time it has been used for a 5711. The new Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711/1R-001, with its 40 mm polished and satin brushed rose gold case, comes […]
