Patek Philippe reference 2555 is the waterproof Calatrava. Compared f.ex. to reference 96, which features a snap-on case back, reference 2555 is fitted with a screw down case back. This reference is highly rare. To date, no more than a dozen examples have appeared at world market, with the present watch being fresh to the market.

First Patek Philippe Calatrava was reated in 1932, it is the result of an avant-garde philosophy of aesthetics that showcases sleek lines and subtle elegance; the collection expresses artistic ingenuity at its very finest. The endearing quality of the design reflects the relentless pursuit of perfection that has always been at the core of Patek Philippe’s mission. These inimitably elegant ladies’ and men’s watches are impervious to short-lived trends, recapturing the hearts of each new generation. Whether extra thin, with hobnail patterns or wide polished bezels, they are all unmistakable members of the Calatrava family and even their changing faces cannot belie their origins. No other watch lends better expression to the true Patek Philippe style.
