  • Catalogue Essay

    Following the long esteemed lineage of world time watches, Patek Philippe redoubled its efforts in 2016 and introduced its first serially produced world time wristwatch incorporating a chronograph complication: the reference 5930.

    Not only admired for its movement, the present watch also mesmerises the beholder by its elegant design. A fifth of a second divisions scale has been added between the mobile city and 24-hour rings, and the 30 minutes counter is placed at 6 o’ clock. The lustrous white gold case, the subtle blasted sliver minute ring combined with the delicate hand-guilloché Prussian blue dial, evokes the spiral pattern of a pine cone, creating the most captivating scenery to look at.

    Uniting the modern craftsmanship of Patek Philippe and its history, reference 5930 is a highly fascinating timepiece which will most probably be regarded as a landmark world time model for years to come.
