Description

Best known for their Complication and Grand Complications watches Patek Philippe masters the “Haute Horlogerie” and are arguably the best in the industry. Conceived to meet existential or professional requests, these breakthrough complications live on. In the 1930s the first World Timer saw the light, a wristwatch indicating the time for 24 time zones on a single dial.

Evolution of an emblematic model,  the line of Worldtimers also known as “Heure Universelle” exists since over 80 years, extremely coveted by collectors who in recent auctions pay up to 2-3 million $ for a rare vintage piece, that sets the tone very high.
After an absence of over 35 years from the catalogues, the reference 5110 was released in 2000 and was available for 6 years, made in yellow gold 5110J, white gold 5110G and with a blue centre dial in platinum 5110P.

In 2006, the brand released the very popular and elegant 5130 model in a 39.5mm case, 2.5mm bigger than the older sibling, it had a 10 years long lifespan, they produced that version in rose, yellow and white gold, the platinum was blessed with a few stunning limited editions pieces, to name some; 1) Dubai edition 5130p-014, 2) Mecca edition 5130p-015, 3) Edinburgh edition 5130p-029, 4) Beirut edition 5130r-027 and the very coveted cloisonné enamel dial versions, the rare references 5131 that saw many long waiting lists for all metals, as of early 2019 only the 5131/1p full platinum bracelet version is being produced with the North Pole enamel dial.

In 2016 we saw the release of two new World Time references, 5230 (pink and white gold) which saw a new designed case 1mm smaller than its predecessor, new hands, winglet style lugs and a slate-grey centre dial guillochéd by hand.
All of these references are powered by the microrotor 240-HU but there is something new, the birth of a model inspired by a unique piece from 1940, the World Time Chronograph 5930G debuts with a new caliber CH 28-520 HU, world time indication along a chronograph function.

 

The present reference known as the “Worldtime Dubai Edition” was launched to commemorate Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, Patek Philippe’s Dubai retailer’s 60th anniversary and 50 years of collaboration between the two companies.
A distinguish difference from the standard 5130P is the black dial with center part guilloché in sunburst pattern with an emphasis on the city ring, with Dubai highlighted in red.

The automatic-winding 240 HU movement is visible with a sapphire crystal case back marked with « Commemorative Piece 1950 – 2010 » inscription.

A shinny black alligator strap with matching red stitching is coupled with an engraved Calatrava Cross clasp. This timepiece is offered with its full original set, inlacing its limited edition attestation.
