2000s Patek Philippe Calatrava 18k WG (Ref. 5115) Enamel Dial
Does your watch have email?
Patek Philippe is one of the world’s most prestigious luxury watch brands that, as the ads say, you never quite own, you simply look after for the next generation. And this reference 5115 is very much worth looking after.
Introduced in 2000, the ref. 5115 is considered by some to be the ultimate sleeper watch (if you can consider a Patek a sleeper), as it's a relatively simple, time-only manual piece. But simple does not equal boring. In true Patek fashion, every aspect, touch, and angle of this watch is utter perfection – from the 18k white gold case featuring unconventional crown guards to the light hobnail touch to the bezel, and the elegant hands.
Oh, and the 'email' wording on the bottom of the dial? That's the French word for enamel, of which this dial is made. Complete with subtle imperfections and that finish only enamel can provide, every single 5115 dial is unlike any other.
This is the watch your descendants will be fighting over.

The excellent 18K white gold case is believed to remain unpolished as all the factory dimensions remain intact with light signs of use present throughout. The hobnail 18K white gold bezel is also in excellent condition with no notable signs of use present. The watch retains its original crown. The case back also remains in crisp unpolished condition with minimal signs of use visible. The watch is finished with its original Petak Philippe black alligator leather strap with a matching Patek Philippe signed 18K white gold tang buckle.
The flawless white porcelain dial features black Roman numerals, black oxidized gold spade hands, and a sub-seconds register at 6 o'clock.
None. The watch is keeping time perfectly.
