Vintage, Pre-Owned Condition:

This Patek is gorgeous, plain and simple. The dial has no imperfections, and the rose-gold case remains incredibly sharp. The case does show signs of light polishing; this is evident on the hallmark stamps between the lugs and on the upper left lug. The deeply engraved crown with the double P is a wonder to look at, and so is the snap-on case back. Note that this Calatrava comes with a Patek strap and the correctly signed Patek rose gold buckle. In many ways, this is the ultimate dress watch.
