Launched originally in the 1930s, Patek Philippe’s World Time watches have achieved legendary status among international travellers and lovers of fine timepieces. Local time (where the wearer is) is displayed with conventional hour- and minute-hands while the time in any of the world’s 24 time-zones can easily be read off thanks to two rotating outer-dial discs.
The remarkable feature of this 5131R timepiece is its central cloisonné-enamelled disc displaying Europe, Africa, the Americas and surrounding oceans in multi-coloured enamel. The extreme difficulty in crafting this enamelled centre-piece means that only 2-4 such timepieces are produced each year.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire an unworn and still-sealed Patek Philippe World Time watch in 18ct rose gold. Accurate to -3/+2 seconds per day, it would be a wonderful companion for the intercontinental traveller and perfect for wearing during international flights, in a business meeting or when relaxing during a foreign vacation. Or for the sheer enjoyment and satisfaction of possessing one of the world’s great timepieces in pristine condition.
Complete with its original Outer Box and Inner Wooden presentation box. Its Certificate of origin dated September 2015, together with instruction manual and other papers all are contained in a Patek leather wallet.
