2023 ARCHIWATCH "EXPLORER" 2525-1 GLOSSY OFF-WHITE DIAL LIMITED EDITION

SOLD OUT

This collection was designed as an homage to one of the most iconic watch ever made, the Patek Philippe "Calatrava" 96. The 96 is still highly sought after by many collectors around the world. Patek introduced this reference in 1932 entering a new era from pocket watches that were affiliated to rail roads and seemed outdated with the advent of automobiles and aviation (Monochrome Watches). This reference is often called one of the purest design ever made, however its very small diameter -31mm- prevents many watch enthusiasts to purchase it in our modern world. Inspired by the Bauhaus principle, the 96 is commonly found in precious metals like yellow gold, white gold and platinum with small seconds shown on a sub-dial at six o’clock. Some were found with a central second, some with only two hands -hour and minute-, lastly a very few were manufactured in stainless steel.

This watch has been designed with the essence of a rare vintage watch considered as NOS -New Old Stock- as it left the factory without being sold and/or worn. This watch is a dream come true as I've always wanted to combine all these great influences together in a watch that I would enjoy wearing every single day.

This collection is made of 100 timepieces, all numbered out of 100 with 4 dials variations (25 timepieces per variation), offering a very unique perspective on collecting new yet rare watches with a story at an affordable price.

Finally all watches are made of 316L stainless steel, 36mm without crown, 20mm between lugs, 8,5mm thick, powered by a modified Swiss Sellita SW210 manual mouvement with 42 hours power reserve. This watch comes with a Molequin 20mm leather strap (Saffiano - Terracotta with quick release bars) and a Forstner Official 7-rows 20mm -vintage inspired- beads of rice stainless steel bracelet. 

The price is 1690€ (Tax and Shipping included). This timepiece is delivered with a "Certificat d'origine et de garantie". This watch is tested for 5ATM. Estimated delivery: December 8th 2023.
