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 is the Patek Philippe 5230P-001 Worldtime in Platinum is an embodiment of sophistication and high-end watchmaking, showcasing Patek Philippe’s longstanding expertise in creating world-class timepieces. This exquisite watch is part of the esteemed World Time collection, renowned for its functionality and elegance.

Crafted from platinum, a metal revered for its rarity and durability, the 5230P-001 boasts a 38.5mm case that radiates with a distinct luster unique to this precious metal. The choice of platinum not only adds a touch of luxury but also ensures the watch’s longevity and prestige.

At the heart of this timepiece lies a self-winding mechanical movement, caliber 240 HU, which is a testament to Patek Philippe’s commitment to precision and reliability. The movement is intricately designed, featuring a 22K gold mini-rotor, visible through the sapphire-crystal case back, a hallmark of Patek Philippe’s attention to detail and craftsmanship.

The dial of the 5230P-001 is both functional and aesthetically striking. It features a hand-guilloched center with a blue hue, surrounded by a ring that displays 24 time zones. The elegance of the dial is enhanced by the applied white gold hour markers and hands, offering clarity and readability. One of the most distinctive features of this model is its ability to simultaneously display the time in multiple zones, a feature invaluable to the modern, global traveler.
