Patek Philippe’s Calatrava Ref. 5227 is as classy and high-grade as any large dress watch could ever get. With a 39mm diameter gold case and 9mm thickness, the watch is not really a chunky type of large watch. Rather, it is just the right size for the modern dress watch – admirable but not too conspicuous. The caliber 324 S C automatic is a powerful modern mechanical movement which includes Patek Philippe’s Gyromax balance wheel as well as the Spyromax hairspring technology. The world renowned Swiss watch company tops off this elegant contraption with a pristine white dial adorn with simple indices, a date aperture, and dauphine-style hands. Even in the most minimalist styles, Patek Philippe upholds its name for sophisticated and topnotch quality timepieces.
