  • Catalogue Essay

    The world time complication has been particularly favoured by both watch collectors and travel enthusiasts. Since its release in the year 2000, the Patek Philippe ref. 5110 has enjoyed instant recognition for allowing its wearer to quickly identify the timezones of 24 different cities simultaneously. Beautifully proportioned, this reference is very attractive, boasting subtle yet intricate finishing touches on both its dial and its case. The multi-faceted dial is composed of two peripheral rotary discs, where the inner disc details the respective timezones of the cities listed on the outer ring.

    The present timepiece is a ref. 5110P, encased in platinum. A quiet giant, the case is measured at 37mm, featuring smooth straight lugs and is quintessentially a Calatrava through and through. New at the time to Patek Phillippe, the hands are defined by their contours that flatter the baton-shaped applied hour markers. Taking cues from the manufacturer’s heritage as masters of pocket watches, the center of the dial also features hand-engraved guilloche patterns that bring depth to the flat surface. Closed with a sapphire caseback, the wearer is also invited to admire its uber-thin cal. 240HU, an automatic movement that is not only technically sound but is as beautifully finished as its dial, with Geneva stripes, perlage and anglage.

    Presented in excellent overall condition with its presentation box and an Extract from the Archives, this World Time ref. 5110P will be a great addition to any collection.

    Patek Philippe

    Swiss • 1839

    Since its founding in 1839, this famous Geneva-based firm has been surprising its clientele with superbly crafted timepieces fitted with watchmaking's most prestigious complications. Traditional and conservative designs are found across Patek Philippe's watches made throughout their history — the utmost in understated elegance.

    Well-known for the Graves Supercomplication — a highly complicated pocket watch that was the world’s most complicated watch for 50 years — this family-owned brand has earned a reputation of excellence around the world. Patek's complicated vintage watches hold the highest number of world records for results achieved at auction compared with any other brand. For collectors, key models include the reference 1518, the world's first serially produced perpetual calendar chronograph, and its successor, the reference 2499. Other famous models include perpetual calendars such as the ref. 1526, ref. 3448 and 3450, chronographs such as the reference 130, 530 and 1463, as well as reference 1436 and 1563 split seconds chronographs. Patek is also well-known for their classically styled, time-only "Calatrava" dress watches, and the "Nautilus," an iconic luxury sports watch first introduced in 1976 as the reference 3700 that is still in production today.
