World Time Chrono­graph Ref. 5930,

PATEK PHILIPPE

L'officiel Singapore - - Style -

Story: Watches equipped with both world time (a com­pli­ca­tion which dis­plays 24 in­ter­na­tional time zones) and chrono­graphic func­tions are un­com­mon. Even Patek Philippe has de­vel­oped only one such model (the unique piece dates back over 70 years). Now, for the first time, the pres­ti­gious Swiss watch­maker has in­tro­duced a new world time chrono­graph to its reg­u­lar col­lec­tion. Dial: True to the look of tra­di­tional world time chrono­graphs, a blue, hand-guil­lochéd pat­tern marks the cen­tre of the dial, cir­cled by os­cil­lat­ing 24-hour and city rings that rep­re­sent and dis­play the 24 dif­fer­ent time zones. Case: The 18k white gold case sports the same winglet-style strap lugs which were a key de­sign code of world time watches in the ’40s and ’50s. Move­ment: CH 28-529 HU self­wind­ing me­chan­i­cal cal­i­bre. Strap: Navy-blue, hand-stitched al­li­ga­tor with large square scales.
