1960s Patek Philippe Calatrava (Ref. 3420) 18K YG
There is the saying that “You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation.” and we think this couldn't be truer. The fine craftsmanship that Patek Philippe wristwatches are built around has created a generational foundation for these watches to be passed down and to remain functional, relevant, and timeless for years to come.
The Patek Philippe Calatrava is the truest essance of a dress watch. The sleek round case of the calatravas often feature intricate lugs and house classic dial layouts. The ref. 3420 features the Patek Philippe in-house cal. 27 AM 400 manual winding movement, which is the same movement that was used in the highly desired "Anti-Magnetic" Calatravas that Patek Philippe produced in the 1960s. The cal. 27 AM 400 is nickel-finished lever 18 jewels movement that is stamped twice with the Geneva seal, a free sprung regulator, and a Gyromax balance. A truly impressive movement for a beautiful 18k yellow gold Calatrava.
