World Timer | 5110G-001 | white gold
The world time function has been a complication particularly favoured by collectors. This piece is particularly attractive, excellently proportioned at 37mm in diameter with a subtle, yet intricate guilloché pattern on the inner dial.
Allowing the owner to quickly identify the time zone of 24 different world cities simultaneously, the 5110G is incredibly useful. The multi-faceted dial is made up of two peripheral rotating discs, with the outer disc identifying the city, and the inner disc denoting the respective time-zone.
The time shown at twelve o’clock is local time, with the cities to the East on the right, and the cities to the West on the left. The local time-zone can be easily changed by the pusher at ten o’clock. When the pusher is pressed, three things happen simultaneously: the hour hand advances by one hour, while the city and twenty-four-hour disks move counter-clockwise by one time zone. If the hands previously indicated 10:15 as the local time for London, they now display 11:15 for Geneva.
The case sized at 37mm features smooth straight lugs, and it is quintessentially ‘Calatrava-esque’ in its shape. The hands, new at the time to Patek Philippe, are distinctive in their lozenge-shaped contour and compliment the applied inner hour baton markers perfectly. The centre of the dial features a beautiful hand-guilloché pattern, inspired by Patek Philippe’s past mastery of pocket watches.
Powered by the ultra-thin calibre 240HU (‘Heure Universelle’), this self-winding movement features an elegant 22K gold micro-rotor, allowing a height below 3.9mm; despite the multiple time zone mechanism, placed dial-side on top of the movement. The movement a spiromax balance spring made of silicon-based silinvar, working in conjunction with a Gyromax balance wheel. The 240HU calibre movement is beautifully finished, with finely applied Geneva stripes, perlage and anglage, and exquisite chamfering on all angles; this exceptional movement assembly revealed by the inclusion of a sapphire display case-back.
This watch comes on a navy blue Patek Philippe alligator strap with lightly contrasting blue stitching, along with its original Patek Philippe deployant clasp in 18k white gold, matching the case.
Viewings can be arranged in Central London by appointment.
