Furthermore, the flat bezel makes the watch look even bigger than it is in description.

First Patek Philippe Calatrava was reated in 1932, it is the result of an avant-garde philosophy of aesthetics that showcases sleek lines and subtle elegance; the collection expresses artistic ingenuity at its very finest. The endearing quality of the design reflects the relentless pursuit of perfection that has always been at the core of Patek Philippe’s mission. These inimitably elegant ladies’ and men’s watches are impervious to short-lived trends, recapturing the hearts of each new generation. Whether extra thin, with hobnail patterns or wide polished bezels, they are all unmistakable members of the Calatrava family and even their changing faces cannot belie their origins. No other watch lends better expression to the true Patek Philippe style.

The sizes of 35 mm are often called “oversized” because thanks to its design it seems much larger.

We believe that these early references are fathers of all Calatrava more or less complicated.
