  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2006, the Patek Philippe ref. 5130 World Time is the second modern iteration of the famous timepiece. Being the successor of the ref. 5110, the new model featured essentially the same caliber but a larger case size at 39.5mm in diameter compared to 37mm for its previous model. The World Time was initially developed by Louis Cottier in 1935 via an inner rotating discs indicating 24 cities covering all time zones. Fast forward to modern times, the mechanism remains largely unchanged due to its high practicality and easy use.

    Produced in all four precious metals including yellow gold, pink gold, white gold and platinum, only the pink gold and white gold variants was released with a bracelet variant in the firm’s signature rice bead style. The reference was discontinued entirely in 2016 making way for the new ref. 5230.

    The present example Patek Philippe World Time ref. 5130/1R-001 from circa 2013 is of the variant with a bracelet. Offered in excellent overall condition with extremely minimal signs of use and wear as well as complete with its full set of accessories, it is further consigned by the original owner who purchased the watch at the Patek Philippe Boutique in Tokyo, Japan.

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