Patek Philippe adorns the wrists of elegant and demanding travellers with a sublime model equipped with a second time zone and self-winding movement.

In 2015, Patek Philippe unveiled a Calatrava Pilot Travel Time with a style taking inspiration from pilot’s watches with large, easy-to-read figures on the dial. The brand even equipped it with a second time zone so that travellers could easily check their local and home time. This year, during Baselworld, we were introduced to a feminine version with the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time reference 7234R-001 built around a 37.5mm-wide case. Driven by the same automatic movement, the calibre 324 S C FUS, it features the same time display on the dial. Two large hands coated with luminous material show the time where you are now. A third, skeleton hand, indicates the time where you come from. A smaller hand points out the date in a counter at 6 o’clock. To round off the information, two symmetric indicators show whether it is day or night in the two time zones with a white or midnight blue colour.
