1965 Patek Philippe Calatrava 18K YG (Ref. 2573) “Koch” Dial
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.
This Patek ref. 2573 retailed by Koch is a downright classic, embodying every characteristic of a Calatrava down to the stunning Patek Philippe cal. 10-200 manual movement with sub-seconds. This would be a great addition to a collection lacking a formal dress watch. This timepiece would pair great with a tuxedo or suit as it would fit perfectly under the coat sleeve and is simple yet ultimately refined.
