"This set of three Patek Philippe Calatrava watches can be considered a homage to ornithology: each one has a dial with a different parrot motif in cloisonné enamel. Despite the fact that this set of three timepieces is crafted in a limited edition, every watch is one-of-a-kind because even the most consummate enameler cannot create two absolutely identical cloisonné enamel motifs. Each dial requires 18 to 20 enamel colors, some opaque and others transparent, allowing the guilloched leafy background decor to shine through. The sharply contoured Dauphine hands that track the time are made of white gold to match the platinum case. They are driven by the ultra-thin self-winding caliber 240 movement, which has a 22K gold rotor completely recessed in the plate. It can be admired through the sapphire-crystal case back. The watch is worn on a large-scaled, hand-stitched alligator strap with a platinum prong buckle."
