Patek Philippe Calatrava Date White Gold

Why We Love It

Patek Philippe is one of the few brands that knows how to execute simple perfection. 

Over the years, their dress-line Calatrava has evolved, but the look remains unmistakable and iconic, and its rich history provides the vintage enthusiast with a variety of choices in metals, sizes, and tiny details to obsess over. This particular example is a Reference 3445G, and is a delight for new and experienced collectors alike.

Dating to approximately 1968, it features a perfectly sized 35mm solid 18K white gold case, a departure from the more commonly found yellow and pink gold models. Unlike most pieces of this reference, this example offers a traditional case design - while many featured an integrated bracelet that limits wearability. Powered by a beautifully decorated Calibre 27-460M automatic movement, this piece is the very essence of the iconic Patek Philippe- beautifully proportioned, luxurious, and timeless

In other words- everything you need, nothing you don’t. 

The Story

Patek Philippe.

Founded in 1839, Patek Philippe is one of the oldest watch manufacturers in the world with an uninterrupted watchmaking history. Few luxury brands in the world carry the gravitas of their name, and for good reason.  The firm's commitment to excellence in horological manufacture is unflinching, and their track record of innovation in design without peer.  They continue to lead the industry, and even their fiercest competitors have nothing but the utmost respect for the company.

Vintage Patek Philippe is for many the ultimate goal of timepiece collecting, and for a certain type, the only vintage timepieces they collect.  Whichever way you look at it, there is no questioning the elegance of design, superlative manufacture of their movements, and that finding these characteristics on a vintage piece that also tells a story is some next level shit.
