The latest addition to the Calatrava collection, this new white gold Reference 5226 is a perfect illustration of Patek Philippe’s quest for excellence in all fields of the watchmaking art. Starting with the shape of the pure, round case for which Calatrava models have been renowned since 1932, Patek Philippe has revisited this by adorning the flanks with a Clous de Paris hobnail pattern typical of the Manufacture. So as to enable this guilloched motif to continue around the entire caseband, the designers have also devised a distinctive case construction in which the lugs are an integral part of the case back.

Patek Philippe Values

Tradition

The history of the Patek Philippe manufacture, founded in 1839, is part of Geneva’s great watchmaking tradition. It is the legacy born out of the experience and ingenuity of countless generations that safeguards and breathes life into the manufacture. It is a tradition of innovation that reinvents itself every day. True to noble artisanal techniques, master watchmakers and craftsmen consummately perpetuate, day after day, timeless gestures, lending their sharp eyes and deftness of touch to the fine art of watchmaking while remaining abreast of the latest technological developments.

Innovation

In keeping with its tradition of innovation, Patek Philippe constantly tests the frontiers of watchmaking artistry through its avant- garde achievements at the cutting edge of technology. The manufacture has asserted its pioneering role not least by successfully filing over 100 patents, including twenty of major importance to the history of horology. In the same context, the Patek Philippe Seal was established as a dynamic quality hallmark that accommodates technological progress in the service of long-term improvements of the functionality, reliability and rate accuracy of watches.

Quality and fine workmanship

Antoine Norbert de Patek and Adrien Philippe had but one goal: to develop and manufacture the finest timepieces in the world. Today, more than ever, quality and fine workmanship remain the watchwords for production at Patek Philippe. This applies to the movements and the external elements, the technical concept, the performance of each function, and the rate accuracy of the timepieces. Thierry and Philippe Stern personally stand by all the commitments embodied in the Patek Philippe Seal, the most exclusive of quality commitments in the entire industry.
