Patek Philippe released the hyper-cool stainless steel Nautilus 5990 Travel Time.
In a surprising move, Patek has played to the trends and reached into their history to inspire the new Patek Philippe ReplicaCalatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref. 5524. With a classic and rugged design, handy jumping-hour dual time complication and a trick pusher design, this odd-ball Calatrava stands out in Patek’s current line up.
The Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref. 5524 is based on old Swiss Patek Philippe Replica hour angle watches that helped pilots calculate their position when used in tandem with a sextant and a radio.
ThePatek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Replica Watches case is 42mm wide and offered exclusively in white gold. With a thickness of 11.78mm and a lug to lug slightly under 51mm, the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time feels excellent on wrist, with a very masculine and sporty appeal.
The Patek Philippe Replica dial is done in a very dark blue lacquer that appears somewhat grey in all but bright lighting. The hands are blued steel with ample lume and the arabic markers are also generously lumed for low light visibility. Additionally, the supplemental hour hand can be hidden beneath the main hour hand when the owner is not traveling.
How did this rather traditional, classic-looking sports watch design become something to wear with a suit?
Perhaps the biggest clue that this beautiful Patek Philippe Replica Watches timepiece is inspired by historic sport watches is the placement of the tachymeter scale around the bezel. Such a tool is used for being able to measure the speed of an observed object using the chronograph. Pretty much the only time anyone used something like this was during races – the domain of sport watches.
In many ways, the appeal of Cheap vintage-styled replica watches is intrinsically linked to our nostalgia for the past – especially those times that we did not personally live through. Stories and movies idealize the past, and in hindsight, everything was, of course, better.

There have been a slew of Patek Philippe Swiss Replica Watches that look similar to this Patek Philippe 5270R-001 Perpetual Calendar Chronograph and other 5270 models, but most have been much smaller on the wrist. While 41mm wide is not huge at all, it is very much on the larger-end for a classic, complicated dress watch of this style. Now in 18k rose gold, Patek Philippe finally gives collectors the ability to show off a bit.

The dial features a center portion that is treated to a hand guilloche finishing surrounded by matching gold markers.
