Now may be the time for me to step up and finally make the purchase. The little movement in the big case doesn’t bother me.

One of my favorite Calatravas

The 37mm case wears so comfortably on the wrist due to its slim profile. The two-tone, silver, sector-dial has applied Breguet numerals, and makes use of a range of finishes. It wears well dressed up or dressed down. I just learned that this will be an al...  

An easy Patek to live with on a daily basis....

Looks good on your wrist.

...he was not a small man, but the watch looked much larger than the 37mm indicated. It had a TON of presence.

Looks good and never gets old...

How long has this been in the catalog, since early 2000s? What does allocation piece actually mean?

"The 215 PS movement is an older movement and will be replaced."

What is your basis for this assertion? I have no reason to disagree; but why do you think this is true?

Congrats on a most elegant piece, it's already a classic of the Calatrava collection ;-)

It seems unlikely to me that it can become an "allocation piece" (at least in the same sense that an out-of-catalog piece is, or even a 5131/5231, which all at some stage require approval of a customer's name), but it's definitely unsurprising that produc...

small movement isn't a big bother as it has a solid case back & the movement is a very good one in principle. the breaking point is it's pricing - current retail price allows you too think too many other good options available. Best, mahesh.,

Honestly one of my favorite Pateks
