  • Catalogue Essay

    For the reference 5230, Patek Philippe imbibed the classic design of its earlier models and relaunched the famous world time watch with a gorgeous and carefully designed pink gold case, in addition to a breathtakingly mesmerizing, hand-crafted guilloché dial.

    The hour and minute hands of the present watch display local time in the middle of the dial. Surrounding it are two fascinating rings, the outer ring with the names of 24 metropolises that stand for 24 time zones, the inner ring with a 24-hour scale featuring a brighter part with a sun symbol for the daytime hours and a darker one with a moon symbol for the nighttime hours. Eliminating the need to calculate time differences or stop the watch and move the hands, the wearer can conveniently reset the time zone by using the push-piece at 10 o’clock. The setting is complete when the city for the destination time zone is at the top of the dial.

    Being one of the last modern world-time that still has Hong Kong on the outer world ring makes this beautiful and handy watch even more collectable in years to come. Completed with a Certificate of Origin and a wooden presentation box, this is a rare chance for any watch collector to possess a piece that represents horological finesse at its best.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
