The "World Time" complication is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful watch complications... a closer look at the Patek Philippe "World Time".
The World-Time complication (or "Heure Universelle") is a signature complication of the Geneva based manufacture since the 1930s, developed in partnership with a renowned watchmaker: Louis Cottier. We can of course think of the references 1415 or even 2523 which today unleash passions during themed auctions.
Introduced in 2006 to replace the ref. 5110, the 5130 is part of the contemporary, neo-vintage "World Time" collection.
Sharing the same Manufacture 240 caliber base as the 5110, the 5130 is available in yellow gold, pink gold, white gold and platinum. The 5130 has known limited editions that are sometimes very exclusive and still unknown to collectors.
The reasons for these limited editions were varied and specific to the manufacture: anniversary of an authorized dealer, opening of a new boutique or even a special order for an important customer.
