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.
A decade later, in 2016, the iconic 5130 reference is replaced with a new reference 5230G,  redesigned case, hands and guilloched dial.

 

*This present watch is a limited edition of 40 pieces, reference 5230G-022, the famous Swiss watchmaker rewards some of their oldest partners with special editions.  This time it was the Mexican retailer who celebrated the brand’s 25th anniversary in the country with class for 40 lucky collectors.
A white gold cased watch features a gorgeous grey hand-guilloched centre dial,  the 24-hour city ring reveals now in red the capital Mexico. The hour ring with day & night indicator has a unique red for night and white color with green numerals for the day as a tribute to the Mexican flag.   A push-piece at 11 o’clock will easily change the time zone to your local position on the globe.
It is powered by the self-winding caliber 240-HU. This beautiful movement is visible through the sapphire case-back along with the engraving “1994 – MEXICO – 2019”
