  • PATEK PHILIPPE REF. 7234A CALATRAVA PILOT TRAVEL TIME SINGAPORE 2019

    Patek Philippe Ref. 7234A Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Singapore 2019

    You can call this Patek Philippe Ref. 7234A many things, but just don’t call it a ladies’ watch. Of late, many male watch enthusiasts we meet have been opting for smaller timepieces, while women – as we all know – have been wearing larger watches for a very long time. Measuring a very versatile 37.5mm (as opposed to the 42mm diameter of its larger counterpart in gold), and featuring a blue-grey sunburst dial, the first steel Pilot Travel Time watch by Patek Philippe will adorn the wrist of either gender beautifully – if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one, that is. This dual-time automatic watch was one of six South-east Asian limited editions launched at Patek’s hugely successful Watch Art Grand Exhibition that was recently held in Singapore, and only 400 pieces are available.
