Dedicated to the initiates, cloisonné enamel dials recover their past splendor with this Patek Philippe 5131.
This watch has universal time and take us back in the 40/50’s where the illustrious Louis COTTIER developed for Patek the famous mechanism that gave birth to model 542 in 1938 then model 2523 in 1953 able to display 2 time zones.
The performance comes from this permanent display of all the hours worldwide. A first crown sets the correct time in phase with the 24-hour disk.
The universal time is set by a push button at 10 o'clock.
At each press, the hour hand advances by one hour while the city disc rotates counterclockwise.
Launched in 2008, the 5131 seduces first with its ideal 39.5 mm diameter.
This watch is resolutely modern. It is waterproof with a screw-down crown.
The 240HU caliber is automatic widing with micro rotor and Gyromax pendulum.
The 18K white gold 5131G was launched one year after the yellow gold.
While the yellow gold shows America, Europe and Africa, this rare white gold model shows Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa.
Less than 1,500 watches of all materials were produced by Patek Philippe.
This model in white gold was sold in August 2010 for a little more than 50 000 euros. It is for sale today at 115,000 euros and this remains an excellent investment.
The pink gold, only model still in the catalog at 60 000 euros, is negotiated at around 125 000 euros.
A new version of 241.8 grams of platinum, reference 5131/1P-001 was introduced at Baselworld in March 2017 and will be retailed at 125,000 euros.
The rating of the 5131 has not finished its ascent…
