Among all the novelties presented by Patek Philippe at Baselworld 2015, our pick is the …
The polished yellow gold Patek Philippe Calatrava 5196G replica watch is the very image of the watch that saved Patek Philippe from the Great Depression, launched the Stern family dynasty, and propelled the Geneva giant to the exalted status that it maintains to this day.
This polished fake Patek Philippe Calatrava 5196G has it all; baton indexes, dauphine hands, sub-seconds at 6 o’clock, tapered lugs, and a discreet crown without guards. It’s just enough to suit modern tastes without crossing the lines of voguish indiscretion. Each element is a loving tribute to the original, but Patek wisely left the 31mm original case to the history buffs and upgraded the 5196 with a contemporary 37mm frame.
By the 1980s, collectors were pining for the reference 96, and Patek saw an opportunity to re-launch the line, now universally referred to by the nickname “Calatrava,” itself a nod to the company’s famed Calatrava Cross logo.
And historically significant polished fake Patek Philippe 5196G copy models like this 36mm 18-karat yellow gold Patek Philippe 2584 automatic are becoming scarce in outstanding condition. Fortunately, watchuwant.com is proud to offer this superb 2584 automatic… while it lasts.
But it wasn’t until 2004 that the Sterns finally issued a mens Patek Philippe Calatrava replica reference in the true image of the famed “96,” and that landmark successor, the 5196, remains a modern icon in the company’s lineup.
