Today's offering showcases this beautiful example of one of the company's classic vintage Calatrava with calendar and extremely fine automatic movement.
Powered by an illustrious Patek Philippe caliber 28-255C automatic movement, the company's ultra-thin automatic mechanism and one of its most beautiful movements, the watch excels in technical merits. Obvious even to the casual observer how much it was crafted and finished with great care, it was awarded the prestigious "Geneve Quality Seal".
Besides employing a superior mechanism, this Calatrava also features a classically elegant case and complementary original "Milanese" Patek bracelet.
The striking royal blue dial is double signed Beyer.
The watch is all original and in gorgeous condition. It is clearly been worn little and treated with an appreciation for its quality and value.
The dial is untouched and mint to the naked eye. The brushed case is also mint. And the bracelet presents as just short of mint with very slight twisting.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
A very handsome watch in superior condition that can be worn daily or just for special occasions.
