In stock


The World Time is closely associated with Patek Philippe and is one of the signature complications from the maison. Based on the elegant solution of famed watchmaker Louis Cottier (1894-1996), Patek released the reference 1415 in 1939, their first world time (Heures Universelles) wristwatch.
From 1965, more than 35 years, the complication had just disappeared from the maison’s offering. So in 2000, Patek Philippe decided to bring back the much loved World Time complication and started offering to collectors a wide range of fine world time wristwatches.
Introduced in 2000, the Patek Philippe ref. 5110 was the first serially produced world time reference, and also the first since the legendary ref. 2523. 2523. It brought a visible evolution compared to the ref. 2523 by using a pusher at 10 o’clock to set the local city instead of the famous second crown. It also made a switch from a manual wound movement to an automatic one.
This ingenious complication features a patented mechanism that is exclusive to all Patek Philippe World Time watches. The timepiece is superbly enhanced by its gold dial center decorated with a cloisonné-enameled motif, further embellished with miniature enamel strokes and gold flakes, depicting the two Americas and the Asia,
a delicate work of art which perpetuates rare traditional craftsmanship. Il World Time Ref. 5131, is featured in a Calatrava style round case in rose gold.

The Patek Philippe Ref. 5131R features the following charateristics:

Case in 18K Rose Gold
Enamel Dial represented tha Two Americas and the Asia
Alligator strap with Patek Philippe Deployant
