Calatrava ref. 570 – one of the most appreciated vintage watches by Patek Philippe. This reference was introduced in 1938 and was quite a large watch for the time, but it is the perfect size for today’s standards. Furthermore, the flat bezel makes the watch look even bigger than it is in desription.
With rare and bautiful Patek Philippe leather box and Patek Philippe Extract from the Archives confirming production of the present watch with sweep centre seconds in 1948 and its subsequent sale on November, 1948.
Calatrava name was first adopted by the company Patek Philippe from the historical Spanish religious-military grouping created in the city of Calatrava (Nuova Castiglia) in 1158. It has become synonymous with the production of watches for gentleman. Transparent and simple design was immediately appreciated by lovers of high-end timepieces, and that is why it is produced still today in various forms.
The first Calatrava of Ref. 96 measuring 29-31 mm was produced by Patek in 1932.
Nowadays, the most appreciated by the watches collectors from that era is the ref. 570 produced by the maison from the year 1938 to 1939, initially with small seconds at an altitude of no. 6, and then with a second central, although the sizes of 35 mm are often called „oversize,” because thanks to its design it seems much larger.
Atelier Tempus believes that these references are fathers of all Calatrava more or less complicated.
