Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5226G

Post by Darksider » August 12th 2022, 12:03am

Continuing the brand’s well-known intentions to liven up the Calatrava, Patek Philippe unveiled a brand-new take on its quintessential dress watch at Watches & Wonders earlier this year, the Calatrava ref. 5226G-01.

The ref. 5226G indicates where the Calatrava line is going – more contemporary design, albeit still informed by vintage models hence the faux vintage lume, which is enhanced with sharper and higher quality detailing. Despite an entry-level watch of sorts (despite a substantial price tag), the ref. 5226G is nonetheless elaborately executed. The hobnail decoration found on last year’s ref. 6119 “Clous de Paris”, for instance, has been repurposed and applied to the case band.

The case is out of this world. The ability to maintain the depth of the cut on a curved surface as the material curves away from the cutter is the epitome of the skill of a master guillocheur.

Never content to rest on distinction, the first of its kind movement in the travel time — annual calendar model is the highest order of innovation that distinguishes Patek as the undisputed number one manufacture in the world.

Oh to hit the numbers.

Like the case but the rest looks too pedestrian for the asking $$$$$
Agreed — the texture just doesn't carry all of the negative space on the dial of the 5226. The TT — AC on the other hand is a spectacular piece of haute watchmaking most worthy of number one.
