  • Catalogue Essay

    Introduced at Baselworld in 2016, the reference 5930 in white gold combines two utilitarian and classic complications from Patek Philippe: a chronograph and world time mechanism. Both extremely useful for the modern globe trotter, the 5930 drew inspiration from a unique reference 1415 HU (“heures universelles”) with pulsations scale from 1940. The similarities end at the shared complications, for the reference 5930 is clearly a wristwatch created for 21st century tastes and lifestyles.

    At 39.5mm in diameter, the bold Calatrava-style case is augmented with faceted lugs and measures only 12mm in thickness. The rich blue dial, with its multi-dimensional guilloché center disc, draws the eye immediately. Instead of a classic two or three-register layout for the chronograph, Patek opted to place only a 30-minute counter at 6 o’clock. A discreet silver fixed ring with the chronograph’s fifth of a second divisions has been added between the mobile city and 24-hour rings. Executed in such a fashion, the watch appears much simpler upon first glance.

    The reference 5930 epitomizes how the manufacture continues to combine elements of their past with the tastes of the present – powered by timeless, intricate mechanics. Consigned by the original owner, the present example is offered in near new condition, with all of its original accessories.
