Patek Philippe – The Calatrava Ref. 5226G

The Calatrava Ref. 5226G

The Calatrava Ref. 5226G is a timepiece that stands out for its new dial finishing. The design for time and date is simple yet elegant, and it displays the finishing to the highest degree. It’s hard to put into words, but the overall feel of the watch is uncharacteristically different from Patek Philippe’s usual style, which adds a refreshing touch to the brand’s collection.

One of the most impressive aspects of the Calatrava Ref. 5226G is how well it wears on the wrist. The watch’s proportions are excellent, and the 40mm diameter makes it a comfortable fit for most people. It’s no surprise that this is a common feature in most watches from the brand, as Patek Philippe has always been known for making watches that are both stylish and comfortable to wear.

The Calibre 26-330 S C is the automatic movement that powers the Patek Philippe Calatrava Ref. 5226G. It features a gold rotor and a 45-hour power reserve, which is more than enough to keep the watch ticking for several days. The movement is visible through the exhibition sapphire caseback, allowing you to appreciate the high-end finishing that goes into creating this timepiece.

While the Calatrava Ref. 5226G is a remarkable watch, it’s worth noting that the calibre in this timepiece is less intriguing than the one found in the Annual Calendar Travel Time. This is to be expected, given the complexity of the Ref. 5326G’s complications. Nonetheless, the Calatrava Ref. 5226G still stands out as a beautifully crafted timepiece that’s sure to impress watch enthusiasts and collectors alike.
