Calatrava 5196

    The Patek Philippe Calatrava 5196 was originally launched in 1932. Although the style has remained the same, the modern updates include a larger case size and a yellow-gold dial. Inside Information: This simple round watch is actually one of the most influential designs of the 20th century, and this subtly updated model perfectly embodies the company’s traditional, measured approach.
