Description

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 essence of a dress watch. The sleek round cases of the Calatrava often feature sophisticated designs and house classic dial layouts. The ref. 2457 features the Patek Philippe in-house cal. 27 SC manual winding movement, which was the successor to the legendary 12-120 SC, and featured an impressive direct seconds driving wheel that modernized center seconds wristwatches that were becoming popularized during the 1940s and 50s. A truly impressive movement for a beautiful 18k yellow gold Calatrava.

CASE & BRACELET
The modestly sized 18k yellow gold Calatrava case has been lightly polished and retains full and symmetrical lugs that show light signs of use. The case retains its original unsigned crown. The case retains its original factory hallmarks. The watch will come supplied on a 2pc leather strap.

DIAL & HANDS
The lovely original dial is in wonderful vintage condition, showing appropriate mild aging and no major damage present. The gold dauphine hour and minute hands are original to the watch, the sweep-seconds hand is an early replacement that is common to see on early Calatrava's.

ACCESSORIES
The watch comes with its original Patek Philippe box, and Extract from the Archives. The watch is keeping time, previous service history is unknown.
