The latest addition to the Calatrava collection, this new white gold Reference 5226 is a perfect illustration of Patek Philippe’s quest for excellence in all fields of the watchmaking art. Staring with the shape of the pure, round case for which Calatrava models have been renowned since 1932, Patek Philippe has revisited this by adorning the flanks with a Clous de Paris hobnail pattern typical of the Manufacture. So as to enable this guilloched motif to continue around the entire caseband, the designers have also devised a distinctive case construction in which the lugs are an integral part of the case back.
This new model is driven by self-winding Caliber 26-330 S C powering the hours, minutes, central seconds, aperture-type date and stop-seconds mechanism. This new reference is teamed with two interchangeable straps: one in beige calfskin with a nubuck finish and the other in black calfskin with an embossed fabric motif and beige topstitching.

Give your watch a quick check on a regular basis, wiping down the face and bracelet with a soft cloth, checking the leather on a strap, and making sure that the strap or bracelet is firmly attached to the watch face. Also, while many watches are water resistant, few are truly waterproof, so if you find that moisture or dust has penetrated the case of your watch, bring it into your local Ben Bridge store where we can have one of our watchmakers clean it out for you.

Our best advice on watch maintenance is to never attempt do-it-yourself repairs, no matter how handy you are or how good the instructions are on Youtube. Watches are super complex little machines and only an expert watchmaker should be trusted to get a watch back into working condition. Attempts by an untrained repair person may seriously damage the watch and can even invalidate factory warranties.

In general, having your watch checked regularly by your Personal Jeweler or watchmaker and serviced according to the manufacturer's guidelines should keep it in excellent shape.
