What a difference a year At last year’s Baselworld, Patek Philippe left many watch aficionados underwhelmed, rolling out only a few new models while saving the headliners for the brand’s 175th anniversary celebration in the fall. This year, however, the quintessential Swiss luxury brand already has tongues wagging about a decidedly unconventional new release: replica watches the Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time Ref. 5524, a white-gold watch inspired by two vintage aviator watches from the Patek Philippe Museum.

As many watch enthusiasts are aware, Patek Philippe’s association with world-time watches goes back a long way: it developed its first “Heure Universelle” timepieces, with famous watchmaker Louis Cottier, in 1930, and was awarded a patent for its original “Travel Time” mechanism in 1959. What fewer may know is that the brand also has a history in aviation, developing notable “siderometer” (or “hour angle”) wristwatches back in the early days of flight,swissreplica two of which are now on display in Patek’s museum in Geneva and serve as the inspiration for this new model.

The most famous “hour angle” watch was conceived with the input of legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh; a modern version of the watch is today marketed by Longines. Unlike that watch, however,fakewatches whose navigational function has been made obsolete by modern GPS, Patek’s new Pilot Travel Time includes a practical second-time-zone system (patented in 1996) that it says is especially useful for air travel.
