Top 5 most wanted Patek Philippe leather band watch for men

Patek Philippe is one of the most famous luxury watch brands in the world. Its loyal customers are mostly billionaires, giants and people of the famous and super-rich world. In this article, we will show you the top 5 most sought-after Patek Philippe leather band watches for men.

Patek Philippe Nautilus Self-Winding Rose Gold 5712R-001

  • Case diameter (10–4 o’clock): 40mm. Height: 8.52 mm.
  • Dial: Black brown, gold applied hour markers with luminescent coating.
  • Case material: Rose gold, Screw-down crown, Sapphire-crystal case back
  • Bracelet material: Matte dark brown alligator leather, Fold-over clasp.
  • Movement: Automatic
  • Water-resistant to 60m. 

The first Patek Philippe leather band watch in this short list is Nautilus 5712R-001. With a gorgeous rose gold finish, it will be hard for your friends and colleagues to ignore this luxurious Nautilus when worn with formal clothes.  This watch features a self-winding mechanical movement, making use of Patek’s 240 PS IRM C LU caliber complete with a power reserve indicator.

As a result, this makes the Nautilus 5712R-001 as technically impressive as it is visually stunning. Its rose gold case contains a screw-down crown and a sapphire crystal case back, and its black-brown dial has gold-applied hour markets that are finished with a luminous coating to make it sufficiently readable in low-light conditions. Additionally, it is waterproof for up to 60 meters.

Like other Nautilus models, the 5712R-001 sits relatively large at 40mm, with a height of 8.52mm. However, the streamlined design helps it to appear compact on the wrist. To finish, a dark brown alligator strap with a fold-over clasp contrasts well with the rose gold, further denoting luxury and class.

As we’ve established, most Nautilus models are highly in-demand, and the 5712R-001 is no exception. This dressy number sits firmly on the wish lists of many luxury watch aficionados, which is why it could not be excluded from this list of the most wanted Patek Philippe leather band watches. 

Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time 5524R-001

  • Case diameter: 42 mm. Height: 10.78 mm.
  • Dial: Brown sunburst, black gradated, gold applied numerals with luminescent coating.
  • Case: Rose gold. Sapphire-crystal case back. 
  • Bracelet material: Calfskin, vintage brown. Clevis prong buckle.
  • Movement: Self-winding mechanical movement.
  • Water-resistant to 60m. 

This list of most the popular Patek Philippe leather band watches would not be complete without Patek Philippe’s Calatrava Pilot Travel Time, it has long been a contentious topic of discussion among horology fans. Some dismiss it as too radical, while others consider it ahead of its time. Whatever your opinion on this divisive design, there can be no denying that the 5524R-001 iteration, with its warm brown dial and rose gold finish, is a sure-fire winner in the looks department.

Apart from the materials, nothing much has changed in comparison to the contentious 5524 model. As a pilot’s watch, it may feel like something of a novelty for Patek Philippe – but one look should be enough to change your mind. The inclusion of a calfskin strap in matte brown, which utilizes a three-piece fastening system, only ups the elegance factor.

As a beautifully executed timepiece, the 5524R-001 has proved the naysayers of the original Calatrava Pilot Travel Time wrong. It pairs well with almost any outfit, features prominent, contemporary and legible gothic numerals, and remains hot in demand among horology enthusiasts.

It’s not the cheapest Patek on the market, but then again, it’s far from the simplest: the 5524R-001 is enhanced by an innovative Spiromax balance spring and Gyromax free-sprung balance wheel, which means it offers precision timing and a tolerance of no more than +2 seconds per day. For those who want the perfect combination of elegance and accuracy, the Patek Philippe Calatrava Pilot Travel Time 5524R-001 is an ideal choice.

Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph 5905P

  • Case diameter: 42 mm. Height: 14.03 mm.
  • Case material: Platinum. Sapphire-crystal case back. 
  • Dial: ebony gray-black sunburst, gold applied hour markers and numerals.
  • Bracelet material: Alligator strap with square scales, hand-stitched, matte matte black. Prong buckle.
  • Movement: Self-winding mechanical movement. 
  • Water-resistant to 30m. 

Patek Philippe leather band watch Annual Calendar Chronograph had long staked its place as one of the brand’s most popular designs, and this 2015 update is a modern, sporty update on an old classic. The dial is made up of concentric circles – one of which outlines the minute scale on the perimeter, with the other circumscribing the hour markers. Super-luminescent hands make night-time reading a breeze, and the perfectly-matching navy dial and strap complement each other beautifully.

This iteration of the Annual Calendar Chronograph features a 60-minute counter positioned at 6 o’clock, and the stop, start and reset options are column-wheel driven. Within the 59095P-001 sits a CH 28 520 QA 24H caliber, which utilises circular dressage to match the 21k gold rotor finish. This is a nice departure from the use of Geneva stripes in previous models.

Ultimately, Patek Philippe has amalgamated style and functionality perfectly on the Annual Calendar Chronograph 5905P-001. It sits well on the wrist and is perfect for those on-the-go or in the workplace. Although we’d consider this watch one of the best and most popular Patek Philippe watches, you’ll be happy to know that at present, it’s possible to pick up a 5909P-001 for slightly less than retail value, but for how long? Time will surely tell.

Patek Philippe Calatrava 5916J-001

  • Case material: Yellow gold case
  • Dial: Silvery Opaline. Sapphire Crystal case back
  • Strap material: Brown alligator strap, yellow gold pin buckle
  • Water Resistant to 30m

The next Patek Philippe leather band we choose for this short-list is Patek Philippe Calatrava 5916J-001. The case is significantly larger than the original Calatrava, measuring 37mm. However, it’s also considerably slimmer, measuring in at just 7.62mm. The 5916J-001 has an integrated lug design and a flat bezel to provide optimal wrist comfort while maintaining a fashionable appearance.

A yellow gold case contrasts nicely with a brown, prong-buckle alligator strap, helping the watch to stand out nicely. It’s perfect for formal occasions but also boasts some serious engineering credentials, with water-resistance of up to 30 metres and a 215 PS manual-winding movement complete with Gyromax balance. If a Calatrava wasn’t on this list of the most popular Patek Philippe leather band timepieces, it wouldn’t be complete.

Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon 6002G-001

  • Case diameter: 44mm
  • Case material: White gold
  • Movement : Manual-winding

Unveiled back in 2013, Patek Philippe leather band watch Sky Moon Tourbillon 6002G-001 first turned heads as the brand’s most complicated wristwatch of all time. While it bears a lot of similarities with the original (5002) Sky Moon Tourbillon, the ornate casework and dial work are enough to make this timepiece one of the most sought-after Patek Philippe designs of the past decade.

 Like the 5002, the 6002G-001 features two dials and 13 complications. Both watches also possess two cathedral gongs, a minute repeater and a tourbillon. There’s little difference in terms of functionality either, as both display standard time, a perpetual calendar and moon phases. On the rear, the dials feature astronomical functions, with the ability to display the northern sky and angular progression. However, the 6002G-001 goes one better and makes use of apertures in place of hands to display days, weeks, months and leap years.

The biggest differences between the 5002 and the 6002G-001 are largely aesthetic. Upon its release, Patek Philippe referred to this model as a “sculpture for the wrist” – and with a single glance, it’s easy to see what they meant. Eloquent ornamental carvings, arabesque garlands and curved elements combine to deliver an incredibly precise case. During the manufacturing process, involuntary movements or brief distractions would ruin the case, resulting in it having to be recreated from scratch. This level of attention to detail assures the place of the 6002G-001 as one of the finest Patek Philippe’s on the market.

In total, over one-hundred hours of craftsmanship are invested into the Patek Philippe Sky Moon Tourbillon 6002G-001, with each engraving being met with the individual approval of the firm’s president Thierry Stern.
