Description

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 version with a very elegant ice blue guilloché dial but the highlight; 5130 references were 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 first released in 2009, the desirable references 5131 that saw many long waiting lists for all metals, as 2019 the last 5131/1p full platinum bracelet version with the “North Pole” enamel dial was produced and discontinued.

In 2016 we saw the release of two new World Time references, 5230 (pink and white gold) redesigned with a new 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.

In 2022, the Worldtime line saw two new references, the 5230P-001 in platinum with blue hand-guilloched with circular pattern center dial and the much desired 5231G-001 white gold case with Oceania and South-East Asia enamel center dial.

 

The present reference is an ultra rare Patek Philippe World Time, never before offered publicly at any reseller or auction house, it is based on the standard 5131R but born with a matching rose gold bracelet, hence bearing the specific reference 5131/1R-011  A sophisticated and elegant men’s watch, showcasing the brand’s expertise in handcrafted watchmaking.  This watch belongs in the top league of the out-of-catalogue special orders.

The 5131/1R-011 is crafted from 18k rose gold and has a case diameter of 39.5mm and thickness of 10.6mm. The dial is made of cloisonné enamel, which is handcrafted and painted with intricate designs representing different regions of the world. The enamel process is incredibly time-consuming and requires meticulous attention to detail to create the intricate patterns and colors.

The watch features a world time function, which allows the wearer to easily see the time in different time zones around the world. The outer ring of the dial has the names of 24 cities representing different time zones, and the wearer can rotate the city-ring to align their home city with the 12 o’clock position. The time in the other time zones is then displayed on the dial through a series of outer and inner rings. The hour markers and hands are made of 18k rose gold and are easy to read against the intricate enamel background.

The watch is powered by the Patek Philippe Calibre 240 HU, an ultra-thin automatic movement that is highly precise and reliable. The movement has a power reserve of approximately 48 hours and is visible through the sapphire crystal case-back.

This rarity comes with its full set and is exclusively available with “K2 Luxury”.
