About the Watch
Fashions come and go but style is for ever, and so it is that the Calatrava’s supremely understated, rounded form continues to defy the decades. Its primary function: to give the time, no more, no less. The secret of its longevity: ageless elegance. Modern yesterday, contemporary today, this icon which Patek Philippe imagined in 1932 excels in the subtle art of reinvention, without ever betraying its original character. The history of this authentically classic watch gives true meaning to the adage that “less is more".

5 Reasons for Vintage
Watches that only a few wearReason Nr. 1
Nowadays, many high-quality watches are mass-produced. Vintage watches were often made in very small series with skilled craftsmanship instead of robots.
Quality that endures generationsReason Nr. 2
In earlier eras, watches were designed to last forever, including the components. There is no such thing as obsolescence. That is what we consider quality at Zurichberg.
Polarizing and characteristic designsReason Nr. 3
Today, only a few watch manufacturers can afford to launch polarising products and therefore produce watches that are aesthetically pleasing to all.
Value for MoneyReason Nr. 4
Vintage watches are overall cheaper than new watches. This is because new watches fulfill the essential financial objectives for the manufacturers, whereas vintage watches are financially "depreciated", so to speak.
Longevity that feels greatReason Nr. 5
We believe that in order to move towards a more sustainable future, it is absolutely necessary and logical to develop a sense for the quality of the past and to reuse products instead of producing new ones.
