This reference pays homage to the Patek Philippe vintage world time watches that are amongst the rarest watches in today‘s world. Reference 5131 was produced in three case versions with three different cloisonné dials. The yellow gold version shows the Americas, Africa and Europe, the white gold version shows Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania; this rose gold version shows Asia, Oceania and the Americas. Complications other than the time and the date are a challenge for the watchmaker – Patek Philippe rose to that challenge easily enough with their world time watches. They are not only technically perfect but also objects of unequalled beauty and craftsmanship. The outer part of the dial shows different cities in the 24 time zones. Further to the inside is a 24 hour display that also displays the day and night times in the time zones. The centre of the cloisonné dial shows a miniature map of the world.
