The Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Replica collection, which has become a staple of the brand, expands it with new styles and complications. However, one of the biggest hurdles for potential wearers of this collection is the case size. with Ref. Measuring 42mm, the 5524G typically carries a large pilot watch on the wrist, and buyers looking for a more compact option can only opt for the mid-size Interpretation Ref. The 7234 is only available in rose gold.
Patek Philippe returns to Calatrava Pilot Travel Time to expand these options, creating a mid-size variant in platinum for the first time. The resulting Patek Philippe Ref. The 7234G-001 Calatrava Pilot Travel Time combines the brand’s unique take on classic aviation elements with a clean, bright new colorway. 18k white gold case for the Cheap Patek Philippe Replica is certainly the biggest addition to this new model, translating the shape of its larger stabilizer into a more compact and lighter size.
With a diameter of 37.5mm, the case should still have a respectable presence on the wrist thanks to the wide lugs and the typical narrow pilot bezel. The overall package is also slim, measuring 10.8mm from the top of the crystal to the back of the sapphire display. The overall form that Patek Philippe Replica Watches lovers should be familiar with, inherits the unique layout of previous Calatrava Pilot Travel Time models, with its large pillbox crown and signature wide pushers at 8 and 10 o’clock.
Despite the sporty aviator design, the depth rating remains low at 60 meters of water resistance. That said, this is essentially an aviation watch, and if a pilot finds himself 60 meters underwater inside an aircraft, the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time will likely have the least water resistance of their current problems. Like the case, so does the dial of the Patek Philippe Ref. 7234G-001 Replica Swiss Movement maintains the overall aesthetic of the collection while adding the allure of platinum.
The matte main dial has a midnight blue lacquer finish for a subtle sense of colour, while the cathedral minute and local hour hands are finished in blue-white gold. The skeleton hands for the local time are also made of white gold and painted white for contrast. This platinum treatment also extends to the block-applied Arabic numerals of the early 20th century, adding a touch of sparkle to this simple aviator design. This orange accent can be divisive, either disrupting the otherwise subdued dial design or adding a lively brightness.
It’s a Swiss Patek Philippe Replica movement with a gorgeous finish, too, incorporating mirror-polished bevels, Côtes de Genève and pearl patterns, and covered by a 21k yellow gold engraved rotor. Interestingly, Patek Philippe’s claims about the performance of this movement vary widely, with a power reserve rated between 35 and 45 hours and a beating rate of 28,800 bph.
To complete the package, Patek Philippe Replica Watches Online offers the Ref. 7234G-001 Calatrava Pilot Travel Time with a pair of leather straps. The first is a glossy navy blue calfskin strap with white contrast stitching, which in the initial image appears to set off the dial’s subtle blue hue. For an even more contrasting look, a distressed brown calfskin strap is also included. Both straps feature 18k white gold U-shaped prongs designed to reflect the seat belts used in vintage flying gear.
While adhering to the established aesthetics of the collection, the Patek Philippe Ref. 7234G-001 Calatrava Pilot Travel Time offers enthusiasts a more discreet, more traditional option in a more manageable 37.5mm size.
