In the world of luxury replica watches there are countless brands that get thrown in our faces on a daily basis, such as Omega, Breitling and Rolex. Today we will continue to show you the entry-level fake watches. Last post it was the imitation Rolex Oyster Perpetual, and this post is about the fake Patek Philippe Calatrava. Patek Philippe is thought of by many people as the pinnacle of Swiss watchmaking. This Swiss watch brand produces some of the world’s highest quality watches. The Calatrava is the entry-level luxury watch collection from Patek Philippe best used for formal occasions. The collection’s beautiful and timeless design has lasted for many years.
At the beginning of the 20th century, Patek Philippe was struggling financially. Jean and Charles Henri Stern bought a controlling stake in the company in 1932. These two men were the saviors of Patek Philippe. They knew that if they were to save Patek Philippe, they had to broaden its appeal. While maintaining the brand’s exceptional reputation for quality and excellence in design and manufacturing, they introduced a simplified mainstream model. The new watch was the Patek Philippe Calatrava 96.
Patek Philippe Calatrava 96
The name of Calatrava comes from the ornate Calatrava cross. The first Patek Philippe Calatrava watch (ref. 96) was first introduced in 1932 and was offered at a price that was more accessible to a wider audience. This simple, elegant dress watch was inspired by the Bauhaus principle and was a great success, helping the company survive the Great Depression.
The original Calatrava was intended to represent the timekeeping function in its purest essence. While vintage watches of the time offered up ornate details and intricate complications, the Calatrava 96 offered a minimalist silhouette. The 31mm round case has a polished flat bezel and is only 9mm thick. To this day, the Calatrava line of watches retains more or less the same original classic design.
Sizes And Looks
The current Patek Philippe Calatrava collection includes watches with different case sizes from 37mm to 42mm, women’s watches have joined the traditional men’s lineup. The thickness of these luxury fake watches is basically 8.5 mm. So both boys and girls can find a suitable watch in this collection. The scratch-resistant sapphire crystal under the dial is very rich in style. We can see dauphine or sword-style hands, stick or Arabic hour markers. There are also diamond or mother-of-pearl dials designed for women.
Patek Philippe Calatrava fake watches have a wide range of complications. Such as, a seconds subdial, a date window, a calendar hand, a day-night indicator, and an extra hand for timing an additional time zone. Calatrava watches are equipped with different movements for different functions, so there are many different kinds of movements included in this watch collection. These include the 240 PS C, 324 S C, and 215 PS calibres. These movements are also available with automatic or manual winding, and each movement has a different power reserve.

Of all the models, the fake Philippe Calatrava 5196 is the closest to the original model of the watch. Although the case diameter is larger (the Calatrava 5196 has a case diameter of 37mm), it is more in line with modern aesthetics. The manufacture of the case remains unchanged, with a simple case and flat bezel. In addition, the layout of the dial is almost identical to that of the ref. 96. There is one hour hand, one minute hand, and a seconds counter at six o’clock. A robust manual-winding Caliber 215 PS with Gyromax balance and Spiromax balance spring offers precise and accurate timekeeping for all occasions. The watch is not only available only in white gold, but also in three other beautiful colorways, yellow gold, rose gold and platinum.

And the gold-applied hobnail-patterned hour markers and 18K rose gold leaf-shaped hands are one of the special features of this ladies Calatrava dress watch. In addition, a beautiful small seconds sub-dial located at 6 o’clock. The white lacquered dial and the leather strap of the same color are also elegant expressions.

But no matter which material the case is made of, ref. 5227 always has an opaline dial. In addition to the three dauphine hands, there is a date window with a border at 3 o’clock. This date complication brings the watch into the everyday wear area. The smooth gold case back can be opened to reveal a 324 SC movement mounted under the sapphire crystal caseback. The movement includes some more modern features such as the Gyromax balance wheel and the Spiromax hairspring that is made of Silinvar, and has a power reserve of about two days.
