Latest Larger Model... Patek Philippe 5130P-001 World Time
This Model is Super Hard to Find.....
The 5130P is a throwback to an earlier era. The unique ring shaped hour hand is drawn from the original Patek World Time watches from the 1930's and gives the piece a wonderful vintage feel. A larger case size (now 39.5mm, as opposed to 37mm on the older model) adds improved legibility, and the elegant, hand-guillochéd center makes this model a horological work of art.
[i]The local time indicated by the hour and minute hands applies to the location on the city disk that is directly aligned with 12 o’clock. The crown is used to set the correct time in conjunction with the 24-hour ring, so a distinction can be made between 4 am and 4 pm. Now, switching from one time zone to another is accomplished simply by pressing the
button at 10 o’clock. Every time it is pressed, the hour hand will advance by one hour while the city ring and the 24-hour ring will rotate counter-clockwise by onehour (equivalent to one time zone). Pressing the button 24 times emulates a trip around the world and a return to the point of departure.
[i]Patek Philippe’s World Time watches belong to the category of complications. They serve their owners well with practical functions of relevance in contemporary everyday life. At a glance, a World Time watchindicates the hour at all major cities.
