Patek Philippe began producing this model in 1938; today it is one of the most coveted timepieces.
The condition of this Calatrava reference 565 is outstanding: Neither the case nor the dial have ever been touched up. The dial has a matte silver colour with applied gold lapped indexes; the leaf hands are gold while the central second hand with a slightly tilted tip is black, as are the enamel signature and the outer enamel minute ring with finely raised markings.
With its classic, low-key design, Patek Philippe’s Calatrava range became the epitome of fine, understated elegance.
