When Patek Philippe frst introduced the Calatrava model in 1932, they set the stage for arguably the most iconic dress watch of the century. Still produced today, the design has changed over the ages but the classic DNA remains the same. The reference 5032 is an ultra-thin Calatrava in production from 1995 to 2001. Presented in three series, the frst like the present watch with metalic dial, the second with a silvered dial and fatter bezel and crown and in 2000 a millennium example made in 100 timepieces. The two piece case by FavurePerret features a screw back and downturned lugs. This example of the reference 5032 is in very good overall condition and while with wear, it remains unpolished. Fresh to the market, it is accompanied by original certifcate of origin and presentation box, only sporadically examples of the model have appeared in public. While time only watches are not as desirable as more complex watches, the Calatrava is a master among so many, and this is a rare opportunity to own not only a Calatrava but a rare example.
