Why We Love it

Patek Philippe has long been known for its complicated watchmaking, but following the stock market crash of 1929, fewer clients had the means to purchase their higher-end models. After securing a controlling interest in the firm, Jean and Charles Henri Stern decided to enlist the help of an English designer named David Penney to create a simple watch that would come in at a lower price point and appeal to the firm’s clientele. 

Using the principles espoused by the Bauhaus school and its minimalist, function-first philosophy, Penney conceived the Calatrava, taking its name from the Spanish military order established in the 12th century whose emblem - a Greek cross with fleur-de-lis ends - had become the symbol of Patek Philippe. Since its debut in 1932, the Calatrava line has become industry shorthand for a simple, elegant dress watch — even from brands other than Patek itself.

This particular Calatrava, a Reference 3445/100, is a later production variant of the model, housed in a 35mm 18k yellow gold case with a sapphire crystal, signed crown, and a polished bezel. It features a stunning non-luminous silver sunburst dial with applied gold sitck indices, a framed date window at 3:00, and matching handset.

Powered by Patek Philippe's self-winding Calibre 27-460M, the Reference 3445 was introduced in 1961 and saw production through the early 1980s. It was the first Calatrava with a date function to feature an automatic movement and a waterproof case, giving it historical significance as well as a sturdier construction than other models, resulting in a watch that has wrist presence and modern-day wearability. This example dates to the early 1970s and remains in truly outstanding condition throughout. Delightfully, it also features a personal engraving, on its caseback - “E.C.O to M.T.O. 2-3-62”  - and is fitted to our in-house Montserrat suede leather strap.

You could get yourself a modern dress watch that tells the time just fine. But this piece - a real Calatrava from the world’s greatest watchmaker - will help you experience the passage of time with the charm, character, and story that only a vintage watch can deliver!
