Patek Philippe Launches the World Time 5130G (5130/1G) Men's Watch
Patek Philippe watches have always been known for their world time feature. The new, classic 5130G
with a metal bracelet is a signature Patek Philippe complication and consists of Patek's world time
rendition, considered by many as the current gold standard in world time authentic watches. If you
travel a lot, you will enjoy this watch.
The newer 5130/1G watch comes with an 18 carat white gold case and bracelet. The Patek Philippe
Nautilus Watch fans will be glad to find another men’s watch from the company with a metal bracelet.
The 5130G watch with a diameter of 39.5 mm is an average Patek Philippe watch in terms of size.
However, it is relatively medium sized when compared to other luxury watch brands in the market. The
longer and broadly spaced lugs give the watch a generous and large look. The 18k case white gold case is
thin. The lavish polishing and finishing on the case and the bracelet make it impressive and royal.
The watch also boasts of the trademark, in-house 240 HU caliber automatic movements. With a
thickness of 3.88 mm, the movement is slim. In fact, it uses a 22 carat gold micro-rotor to maintain a
slim look. The movement has a power reserve of 48 hours. All Patek Philippe 5130G watches also come
with a Gyromax balance wheel as part of its world time feature.
Patek Philippe world time feature is simple and user friendly. Each watch comes with the traditional
hour and minute hands. It also consists of city ring and a 24 hour ring. You can use the pusher on the left
side of the case to move the hour hand in one hour increments. This will help you adjust the time when
you are travelling to a city that follows a different time zone. Your current city of reference will always
appear at the 12’oclock position. You can also use the middle ring on the watch to tell the current time
in other cities across the world. The color codes will help you identify day and night in these cities.
Although the 5130G offers great functionality, it is highly elegant as well. The beautifully decorated
watch offers you a view of the movement through the caseback window. Patek Philippe understands the
importance of legibility as well. You can see the hands easily against the background of a decorated
inner dial. The symmetrical design and the distinct retro flair add to its charm.
