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 Patek Philippe 5131J-001 is a truly remarkable and sophisticated timepiece that embodies the epitome of luxury watchmaking. this model uniquely combines the brand’s rich horological tradition with an eye-catching, hand-crafted world map design.

The watch features an 18-karat yellow gold case measuring 39.5mm, providing a balanced size that is large enough to catch attention yet remains comfortable to wear. The case’s art deco design elements give it a classic, timeless appeal. The bezel, also made from yellow gold, accentuates the watch’s opulent aesthetics.

What truly sets the 5131J-001 apart is its dial. The stunning world map motif on the center of the dial is crafted using the centuries-old technique of cloisonné enameling. Each piece is a unique work of art, given the painstaking, handcrafted nature of the process. The map is divided into time zones and surrounded by a 24-hour ring, enabling the wearer to tell the time anywhere in the world.

The Patek Philippe 5131J-001 is driven by the self-winding mechanical movement caliber 240 HU. This movement boasts a 48-hour power reserve, a 22K gold mini-rotor, and a Gyromax balance, ensuring excellent precision and reliability.

The watch’s strap is made from hand-stitched alligator leather, fastened with a fold-over clasp for added security.
