hi, I am not sure, not familiar with the Patek brand, but good for you . . .
besides here, try the timezone forum - bunches of folks who want to talk watches, though I know there are ladies on the forum who are fans of Patek.

Where will you shop for it? Europe, or an AD here in US?

I looked at the Calatrava line this weekend for my DH. I'd love to get him one in white gold for our anniversary this year. We'll see.

For women's I looked at the diamond Twenty-4 series. Really beautiful but I found a H series Chopard I'm obsessed with for the same price.

Which ones are you interested in? Personally I love the Twenty-4 series. They look more feminine to me.

Close enough
Catabie, I have the grey dial, def. my favorite. I found white too plain. Black is nice too, but they grey somehow went really well w the overall design.

Catabie, is it the 4910 model in stainless steel you are considering?

Make sure to buy from an authorised Patek dealer;this is a popular model to fake.

I love the simple Calatrava with a small face for women. Patek also has a lot of colors for the watch bands making it more interesting. I have the small face rose gold one and have 2 croc bands (black and white). I love the white croc for spring/summer.

Since I also wanted a purely manual/mechanical Patek, I looked and tried on different models for everyday use and the Calatrava won me over. From the ones I saw, there were more quartz options than purely manual/mechanical.
