Patek Philippe presents the Calatrava Weekly Calendar Reference 5212A

Launched in 1932, the Calatrava is the manufactory’s most beautiful expression of stylish elegance. A symbol of Genevan savoir-faire, it epitomises the circular wristwatch per se and is often cited as the classic “dress watch”.

Patek Philippe Calatrava Weekly Calendar

At Baselworld 2019, Patek Philippe presented this iconic timepiece with a weekly calendar. Reference 5212A shows the date in a window and has two central hands to indicate the days of the week, the calendar week and the month. These displays are supported by new self-winding manufacture Calibre 26-330 S C J SE, which concatenates 304 components. The movement can be viewed through a pane of sapphire crystal in the back of the 40-millimetre-diameter case.

This debutante is the first serially manufactured model in the Calatrava line with a steel case. A typeface that was specially designed for this watch makes the numerals look as though they were handwritten.


Montres de prestige à mouvement mécanique et quartz, montres de poche, bijouterie, pendulettes. Depuis 1839, Patek Philippe perpétue l'art horloger traditionnel genevois. Manufacture indépendante, elle jouit d'une totale autonomie créative qui lui permet de développer et fabriquer elle-même ce que tous les spécialistes s'accordent à considérer comme les meilleures montres au monde.
