Patek Philippe modernizes Calatrava for the next generation


Patek Philippe has combined annual calendar and travel time complications in the same movement for the first time, and loaded it into a Calatrava that has been given a modern makeover for a younger audience.

The Patek Philippe Ref. 5326G-001 Annual Calendar Travel Time displays day, date and month along with a second time zone, and only needs its date corrected once per year.

Its slim new Calatrava case is guilloched with a hobnail pattern around its edge and has a charcoal grey vintage dial inspired by the look of old photo cameras.


The same case design and styling is also used for a three-hander with date, the Ref. 5226G-001 Calatrava powered by the self-winding caliber 26-330 S C movement.

Elsewhere in the 2022 line up from Patek Philippe is a Ref. 5320G-011 Perpetual Calendar with a new opaline rose gilt dial.

Patek Philippe has used the same dial treatment for a classic Ref. 5172G-010 Men’s Chronograph inspired by models from the 1940s and 1950s models.
