  • Catalogue Essay

    One can frame the Patek Philippe 7130 World Time as either the smaller, more feminine companion to the other 18 karat white gold World Time wristwatch with guilloche dial in the brand’s current production lineup, the reference 5230G, or as a direct successor to the 5110G in production from 2000 to 2006. All three share the ultra-thin caliber 240 HU with micro-rotor, allowing the wearer to view the time simultaneously in 24 time zones.

    With only one millimeter in difference between their case diameters, the 7130G mirrors the 5110G more closely in wearability, while aligning with the 5230G in aesthetics. While the day and night rotating disc on the 5110 is a restrained blue and gray, the more modern 7130 inspires with a copper and mahogany ring, a bold choice for Patek Philippe in a white gold case as they usually choose warm tones for their pink gold cases. Set against the diamond bezel, and complemented by the factory shiny dark brown alligator strap, the textures and colors of the dial complement the usefulness and wearability of the watch.

    Now discontinued and preserved in excellent condition, the present 7130G would make a fantastic companion for those just beginning to explore the world’s twenty-four time zones again – and beyond.

  • 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.
