Patek Philippe just took off the cover from Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref. 7234G-001, is the medium size of its original dual time zone pilot’s watch. Originally made of rose gold and then steel, the compact pilot now has platinum.
The sporty appearance fits the original model with a large 42mm case, while the smaller case attracts more traditional tastes or people with smaller wrists, making the new mid-sized version an intuitive and complementary version of the series. In essence, it is a more attractive watch.
Calatrava Pilot Travel Time looks much younger than ordinary Calatrava, although it has changed with the release of the latest version such as ref. 6007A, due to the large number and large buttons. Nevertheless, with the traditional Patek Philippe style, the overall feel of the pilot watch is still refined.
Pilot Travel Time is different from the brand’s regular products. It has a contemporary feel and is a bit weird, which reduces its favorability. It shows that a compact, slim and moderately complex watch is quite interesting.
From dial color to complications to typography, almost every feature of the medium variant is the same as the original larger version. Therefore, it is equally easy to operate and read.
