  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2006, Patek Philippe’s reference 5130 World Time is the second modern iteration of their famous world time model. The successor of the reference 5110, the new model featured the same caliber 240 HU but housed in a larger case size at 39.5mm in diameter, compared to 37mm for the earlier model. The World Time was initially developed by Louis Cottier in 1935, who engineered a system of inner rotating discs indicating 24 cities covering all major time zones. Fast forward to modern times, the mechanism remains largely unchanged due to its simple practicality and ease of use.

    First released in yellow, pink and white gold, the platinum 5130 like the present lot, followed in 2007. With a modern aesthetic, the timepiece is instantly adjustable by a simple press of the pusher at 10 o’clock and is notable because Patek Philippe chose to keep the ring-shaped hour hand as a tribute to their historic world time watch design. The reference was discontinued in 2016 and replaced by the reference 5230 with a 38.5mm diameter case.

    The present model from 2007, the first year of production, is in excellent overall condition, and complete with Certificate of Origin and original sales receipt. With its blue grey guilloché dial, Patek Philippe’s World Time 5130P is an innovative and highly functional modern timepiece for the world traveler.
