Patek Philippe invented the world time complication, also known as a “worldtimer”. The early versions of these Patek Philippe world time watches generate seven figure auction results. In more recent years, Patek has offered a few variations. This reference 5131 is by far the most beautiful world time offering from Patek. The dial displays the world map made using the art of cloisonné. Cloisonne watch dials are the efflorescence of the watch dial artisan craft. The process of making each dial is painstakingly manual and involves hundreds of individual steps. Truly, the dial on this watch is art.

The way a true worldtimer like this watch works, is the two-color silver and blue (representing daytime and nighttime) ring with ‘1’ through ‘23’ and the sun at 12 o’clock noon and the moon at midnight, makes one revolution in 24 hours. There are 24 reference cities at the outer edge of the dial, one city representing each of the world’s timezones. The hour in that city is shown on the 24 hour ring which turns counter-clockwise. It’s an ingenious way of displaying the time all over the world instead of the much more limited “GMT” approach.

The case is 18k yellow gold and measures 39.5mm diameter by 10.5mm thick. The front and display back crystals are sapphire.

Movement is the automatic winding Patek Philipe Caliber 240 HU with 33 jewels, 22k mini-rotor, 239 individual parts and power reserve of 48 hours.

Strap is Patek Philippe crocodile with 18k Patek Philippe deployment clasp.
