Men’s Calatrava 5296

    Originally launched in 2005, this model features a few upgrades, most notably the new dial variation and mechanical self-winding movement now showing the date. The timepiece, which comes with a hand-stitched alligator strap, is available in both white and rose gold. Inside Information: While the 5296 is also a classical Calatrava, the self-winding movement contains the company’s most up-to-date developments in chronometry, including the latest generation Gyromax balance, modified gear profiles and a 28,800 vibrations per hour (VPH) frequency. If you want a watch that represents undiluted attention to timekeeping, this might be the one.
