A cherished exemplar of global horology, the Patek Philippe World Time ref. 5130J is considered to be the first serial-production world-time wristwatch by Patek Philippe. Launched in 2006, the model replaced the previous 5110. Housed in an 18k yellow gold 39.5 case, the ref. 5130J captures the essence of international timekeeping with a mix of subtle sophistication, technical prowess and artisanal craftsmanship. At the heart of the ref. 5130J is the intricate silver dial, featuring an exquisite guilloché pattern, surrounded by a 24-hour rotating disk and a static outer ring representing 24 global cities. With just a push of a button, the wearer can effortlessly adjust the time zone, truly embodying the spirit of the cosmopolitan traveller.
Powered by the automatic cal. 240 HU that can be enjoyed behind a sapphire crystal case back, the meticulously crafted movement is visible, allowing a glimpse into Patek Philippe's fine watchmaking expertise. A perfect blend of functionality and finesse, the Patek Philippe World Time 5130J is an emblem of universal sophistication and Patek Philippe’s revered position as one of watchmaking’s most iconic brands given the wide-spread adoption that the World Time complication has enjoyed since the ref. 5110 put it back on the map.

A staple of Patek Philippe's offering, the World Time complication has become as much a part of their identity as tool watches have become a part of Rolex's, and it is models the ref. 5110J that helped create the complication's fabled place position within modern Patek's historical catalog.
