  • Catalogue Essay

    Released in 2006, the Patek Philippe reference 5130 World Time is the second modern iteration of the famous timepiece. Being the successor of the reference 5110, the new model featured essentially the same caliber but a larger case size at 39.5mm in diameter, compared to 37mm for its previous 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.

    Produced in all four precious metals including yellow gold, pink gold, white gold, and platinum, the -018 variant is quite rare, with only two having ever been offered publicly. While aesthetically indistinguishable from the -001 variant, the present 5130R-018 features La Paz and Moscow on the outer ring, and Riyadh on the inner ring, while the -001 features Caracas and Dubai on the outer ring, and Moscow on the inner ring. All variations of the reference were discontinued entirely in 2016 making way for the new ref. 5230.

    Offered in excellent, close-to-new condition, it is offered with its original Certificate of Origin, accessories, and presentation box. It is fresh-to-the-market and from the collection of a discerning American collector.

  • 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.
