There Can be Only One

The question is often asked -

You can only have one watch, what would it be?

Now in fairness, my answer often changes, but more often than not I find myself coming back to this particular version of Patek Philippe's Calatrava - the 5116R-001.  Nice and sane with a diameter of 36 mm.  Beautiful hobnail bezel - this is the one at least for now ; )

Manually wound - just as it should be!  Here are the details -

  • Mechanical manually wound movement
  • Caliber 215 PS
  • Seconds subdial
  • Hobnail-patterned bezel
  • Authentic enamel dial with black Roman numerals
  • Strap: alligator with square scales, hand-stitched, shiny black
  • Sapphire-crystal case back
  • Water resistant to 30 m
  • Rose gold
  • Case diameter: 36 mm
