Patek Philippe Calatrava 565J

Reference 565 was launched in 1938, and was the first “large” (for the times) waterproof wristwatch made by the firm. It will remain in production until 1952, receiving a movement updated in 1950 with the upgraded calibre 12 400 in substitution of the decommissioned calibre 12 120.
The present example features both the earlier calibre 12 120, and also 3/6/9 dial with subsidiary second subdial, absolutely correct for a watch made produced in 1950. It is accompanied with its Extract of the Archives.

The aesthetics of the reference are virtually unique in the vintage Patek Philippe panorama. Most noticeably, the only flat surface of the entire case (of course, bar the case back) is the bezel. The entirety of the rest of the case body is seductively curved and without steps, highlighting the two-pieces construction of the watch. Together with references 570 and 530 and 1503, this model is considered among the most attractive and collectible large time only vintage designs by Patek Philippe.
