  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2016, Patek Philippe introduced a new timepiece that was a fusion of their past traditions with 21st-century horological technology by presenting a world-time wristwatch with a chronograph function. In fact, 75 years earlier, the brand manufactured a unique world time chronograph piece numbered 862’442 which is now in the Patek Philippe Museum. Renowned for their historical reference 1415HU - their first world time wristwatch released in 1939, Patek Philippe created an elegant and classic tool watch that allowed the wearer to track both local and home time.

    The reference 5930G-001 features the new automatic caliber CH 28-250HU, which is the thinnest world time chronograph movement ever made. The blue guilloché dial is elegantly off-set by the 18K white gold case, with fluted lugs reminiscent of the 1940s style. There is a harmony between the aesthetic and the technical that imbues the watch with a posh and stylish flair that will appeal to the modern gentry. Fresh to the market and in lovely condition, this world time chronograph, completed with certificate and presentation box, has a fine appearance and horological prowess that will attract all watch connoisseurs.
