Patek Philippe Calatrava

While one of the best racing watches may be the thing for regattas and a statement skeleton watch is designed to impress, when it comes to elegant evening affairs only something sleek and simple will do. Our round-up of the best classic black-tie watches are the perfect partners to your bespoke tuxedo.

Patek Philippe Calatrava

The original Calatrava appeared in 1932, inspired by the “form and function” principle of Bauhaus. It remains the quintessential dress watch: despite its lack of adornment, it speaks volumes for the horological understanding of its wearer. The Calatrava range is available only in precious metal, with the 5227G version pictured here being made from white gold and fitted with an “officer” case back, which hinges open to reveal the sapphire crystal protecting the beautiful self-winding movement.
