Vintage Patek Philippe Calatrava ref.2509 J
This piece in our hands is a rare variation of Calatrava from Patek Philippe, with radium markers and hands, and a lume dial. Initially, the Calatrava was intended to be purely a dress watch but with the introduction of water-resistant screw back casing, radium markers and hands, Patek Philippe was offering the market a watch for the more “active” gentlemen. Together with Ref. 2508, they are the only waterproof Calatrava.
