Patek Philippe Replica has just taken the covers off the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref. 7234G-001, a medium-sized take on its original dual-time zone aviator’s watch. Originally launched in pink gold, and then in steel as a replica edition, the compact pilot is now available in white gold.
While the sporty look suits the original model with its large 42 mm case, the smaller case appeals to people with more traditional tastes or smaller wrists, making the new mid-size version an intuitive and complementary edition to the line. It’s essentially a more wearable version of an appealing replica watch.
The Fake Calatrava Pilot Travel Time looks more youthful than the average Calatrava, though that’s changing with recent releases like the ref. 6007A, owing to the oversized numerals and large pushers.
Nearly every feature of the mid-size variant is identical to the original, larger version, from dial colour to complication to typography. For that reason, it is similarly easy to operate and read.
