Patek Philippe - Pilots and politeness

Patek Philippe Pilots and politeness

Calatrava Pilot Travel Time.

It took Patek Philippe just five years to turn this new line into a sporty classic attractive to all generations. Inspired by aviators’ watches from the 1930s kept in the Patek Philippe Museum, the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time first appealed to men, who were drawn to the personality of its design as well as to the functionality of its second time zone, which today is more useful than the historical hour angle that pilots need to determine their position. Aesthetically sturdy and practical, the two patented push-pieces ensure rapid correction of the central hand showing local time, complemented by the central day/ night apertures relating to local and home time. Available in pink gold, in limited series and in Grand Complication versions, the new emblematic line from the most sought-after collector’s Haute Horlogerie brand charters a flight in the colors of the sky and brimming with gallantry. The dial’s midnight blue thus replaces the original black, while the diameter is just 37.5mm, ideal for slim wrists. Undoubtedly the best alternative to the Aquanaut and the Nautilus, victims of their success? Pilote et politesse
