The birth of the Patek Philippe Calatrava series is a coincidence. In 1932, the Charles and Jean & bull; Stern brothers acquired the company from descendants of the company’s founders and became the founders of the brand. Since then, time has witnessed the superiority of Patek Philippe at the top of the industry. The industry position determined by their brand value is unparalleled (except for the indirect competitor of Rolex), and the brand’s rare watch resale price is also high. Incredible, but their high-end products are still in short supply. Nonetheless, most of the watches they currently produce must also meet Calatrava’s entry-level standard, ‘mdash;’ a collection of brilliant brilliance derived from high value and complex craftsmanship, although each watch itself is not eye-catching.

At the beginning of the series 70 years ago, Patek Philippe has long been clearly positioned to express the elegance and simplicity of traditional business watches, aesthetic enjoyment, timeless design, detailed processing and classic proportions. It has traditionally combined timing tools and jewellery, and attempts to promote both. Looking at the long history, it is not necessary to think about whether Patek is successful, because the results of the market are obvious. Their products have evolved along with the surrounding cultural environment, and the collection has grown significantly. In the past, the Calatrava series was once 30mm or 31mm in diameter, but now it has become more than 33mm in design, and some have reached 36-37mm; and it has also launched sports products that could not be achieved due to some technical problems in the past. However, the current model 5053 retains the characteristics of the traditional style, with 2 or 3 hands and a 31-day calendar.

As an officer’s watch, the knife and crown graphics that represent traditional military patterns are indispensable. The outer diameter of 36mm is no small for Calatrava, and the thickness of such a huge body is maintained at 9.5mm. The surface of the 5053 is domed and the dial is monochrome. The numerals and hands are Breguet-style. They are simple and pure black, and the dial has a pale yellow luster, and has a delicate crystal-like texture.

The Patek Philippe officer watch Ref.5053 uses the 315SC self-winding mechanical movement introduced in the 1980s. Its biggest feature is that it is thin and light enough. It consists of 30 gems and has a thickness of only 3.22 mm. With the advantages of reliability and adaptability, the 315 movement is widely used in various calendar and perpetual calendar watches, and this Calatrava has not changed in this regard. This movement features a free balance wheel with a diameter of 27 mm and a 48-hour power reserve.

In order to fully appreciate the benefits of this watch, the holder must accept and conform to the characteristics of the watch. Unless the transfer is considered, its value has almost nothing to do with money, and there are no features that can attract people’s attention beyond a few feet. (Can attract people’s attention). Real appreciation is only possible from close range, especially during daily wear. The 5053 is a sophisticated chronograph, elegant jewellery, and probably still fashionable (classic) in 50 years. Although this watch is not a painstaking effort, there is nothing worth concealing (patent pending) and there is no need to repeatedly play with it, but I love it for ten minutes.
PS: 315 movement is Patek Philippe’s first manually wound movement with a high swing frequency of 28,800 times per hour, with the Geneva mark.
For a watch brand that once set off the quartz revolution, innovation is no longer news. Compared with the revolutionary technology of that year, even the saying that ‘one day, all watches in the world will be made in this way’, no matter how dramatic the change is, it does not seem strange to see it today; this is like the past A 3.5-disk disk with a capacity of only 1.44MB. Is it harder to see USB than to see it?

However, what makes watches and clocks interesting is that the old technology will not be eliminated, but only improved; the more mature the technology, the richer the works will be. Take Seiko Quartz Astron as an example. A watch equipped with a quartz movement more than 40 years ago was really a majestic and expensive at the time; now everyone can have a quartz watch, and there is no need to change the battery often. It’s convenient to charge in the sun. Not just solar energy, Seiko also added satellite positioning technology to the watch, launched the first GPS solar timepiece in 2012, also under the name of Astron. For Seiko, Astron is synonymous with innovation. Compared with the 7X series of the previous generation, the 8X series of watches has been advancing with the day. In addition to the new functions of the 8X, it has also adopted a ceramic bezel to improve the sensitivity of the ring receiver. As long as the surface senses sunlight for more than 5 seconds, it will automatically receive satellite waves to synchronize the time on the faceplate with 40 time zones around the world. This function is most suitable for international travel; even if the boat and car are exhausted in bed and forget to adjust, the correct local time can be read when you wake up; of course, the home time at 6 o’clock is also true. The date and day functions are the same as any perpetual calendar watch in the world, and can be accurately continued until 2100. The status of the power reserve can be seen through the indicator at 10 o’clock.

Although these features did not bring the shock of the first quartz watch, in the era when traditional timepieces are also difficult to avoid the influence of science and technology, the development of new technology is obviously a living path. From Astron in 1969 to today, Seiko’s creations have become increasingly sophisticated. It is the childhood memory of many older generations for watches and clocks, as well as the new generation’s affirmation of Japanese timepieces. Even if the original prediction did not come true, it successfully brought the watch to another realm.
