The turbulence made by Patek Philippe’s Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref.5524 appears to have abated and the model has landed as a steady member of the Calatrava family. Besides a new iteration of this Calatrava Pilot Travel Time for guys in hot rose gold, Patek introduced its initial self-winding Travel Time version for women ahead of Baselworld in an unprecedented movement for the newest via an Instagram effort. There have been choice pickings from the complications stadium for women in Patek Philippe pilot travel time replica watches at 2018 with the initiation of the manual-winding girls’ chronograph at a round case and this pilot’s watch for ladies. Equipped with a useful dual time feature, Ref. 7234R is housed in refined 37.5mm rose gold case with a shiny chocolate-brown dial decorated with vintage touches. The tasteful combination of rose gold and brown is quintessential Patek making this an superb choice for globetrotting ladies, while the sporty, marginally manly charisma of a pilot’s watch will appeal to all those Amelia Earharts out there with a taste to high-flying adventures.
FROM TURBULENCE TO CALM SKIES
When the white golden Calatrava Pilot Travel Time using a blue dial premiered in 2015, many purists have been in a state of shock. Why in the world was Patek flying in the face of its customs with a sporty-looking pilot’s watch that could have been produced by more or less any other less upmarket new with a flair for vintage-style aviators? The answer, of course, was at the refined details we associate with Patek andI think you will concur that the 2018 editions, with their hot, luxurious 18k rose gold cases and glistening brown dials exude Patek’s rarefied elegance to perfection and perfection the colder, sportier character of their predecessor.
TRAVELLING IN STYLE
A double time zone or GMT complication is among the most useful features for those on the move. Crossing multiple time zones and having the ability to consult your house time is not only reassuring but really easy to adapt with this version. The Calatrava Pilot Travel Time for girls is housed at a 37.5mm rose gold case, a versatile case size that may also be an interesting unisex proposal. A curious fact: that the 42mm guys’s Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref.5524R is crafted in 5N rose gold as well as the 37.5millimeter women’s Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref. 7234R in 4N rose golden. With its high copper content, the men’s 5N rose gold version is a bit redder than the women’s version…I wonder why?
The classic mushroom-style screwed pushers on the left side of this case allow for the adjustment of the second time zone (local time) in an intuitive and simple manner: the bottom pusher brings forward the time by a single hour, the top pusher does exactly the opposite and the luminous local hour moves counterclockwise. To avoid accidental adjustments, the two pushers are shielded with a patented safety lock and also the neighborhood date can be set by means of a pusher in the case at 6:30 o’clock.
FLYING BACK IN TIME
The mood of the watch is unambiguously brightly and the big Arabic numerals on the dial, the cathedral-style hands along with the conspicuous pushers on the left side of the case obviously mention aviator watches of the 1920s and 1930s. To enhance legibility — a vital characteristic of pilot’s watches — the applied rose gold numerals are hollowed out in the middle and treated using a white luminous coating as would be the hands used to display local time. Home time is indicated by a skeletonised snowy hour , which hides behind the primary hour hands if you are not using the GMT functions.
CALIBRE 324 S C FUS
Like the two men’s Traveling Time Calatrava watches (Ref. 5524R) along with the Aquanaut Travel Time (Ref. 5164)this version is powered by Patek Philippe pilot rose gold replica watch‘s proprietary Calibre 324 S C FUS. An automatic movement with a 45-hour power reserve, this calibre was developed to make the adjustment of the next time zone a breeze. Measuring 31mm in diameter with a height of 4.9mm, the movement has 294 parts and is enhanced with Patek’s creations such as a Gyromax® free sprung balance wheel and a Spiromax® balance spring. The high amount of manual endings and precision — with a tolerance of no more than -3/+2 seconds per day — are corroborated from the Patek Philippe pilot 5524 fake watches Seal.
In keeping with its classic temperament, the timepiece comes with a brown calfskin strap along with a rose gold clevis prong buckle. The prong or fastener is a three-piece fastener method frequently used in sailboat rigging. In cases like this, the clevis fastener was inspired by the harnesses that enabled pilots to keep their survival kits to hand and easily deployable.
