  • Catalogue Essay

    The Patek Philippe World Time has a tremendous heritage since early 1930’s, brought to the world by the father of the world time, Louis Cottier. From the very early ref. 96HU to the present reference 5130, the Patek Philippe World Time is a spectacle of superb innovation and elegance.

    Launched in 2006 replacing its predecessor ref. 5110, the ref. 5130 features a platinum case graced with the ingenious world time complication. Instantly adjustable by a simple press of the pusher at 10 o’clock, the timepiece is tailored for the modern day jetsetter. First released in yellow, pink and white gold, followed by platinum in 2007 like the present example. Fashioning in its modern aesthetics, it is notable that the firm kept the ring-shaped hour hand as a salute to the historic Patek Philippe world time watch design. The reference was discontinued in 2016 making way for the ref. 5230.

    Refined with the highest quality, the present example offered in excellent condition along with its original Certificate of Origin is certainly timekeeping with elevated class in this digital age.

Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand.
