Technically a member of the Calatrava Collection, the reference 5134 is my curveball. Probably more aptly considered a part of perfect replica Patek Philippe‘s Travel Time history, this watch strikes me as incredibly undervalued. When I think of the collectability of the reference 2597 (yes, this is a very different watch but stay with me), I see very little appreciation for the 5134 which is, in fact, the successor. The two designs are from vastly different periods in luxury fake Patek Philippe’s history but the 5134 receives no tailwinds from that connection.
At 37mm in diameter with a couple of different dial layouts to choose from, I think there is a lot to like here with the 5134. I am partial to those made for Gubelin with applied “stick” hour markers but they do trade at a bit of a premium over the slightly under $20k of a standard 1:1 replica Patek Philippe 5134.
