Amongst their backdrop of iconic complications and timepieces, one complication rings out as unequivocally “Patek”, and that is the World Timer. First featuring in Patek’s catalogue in 1939, it has gone on to become one of their most emblematic complications. Released in 2019, the ref. 5231J continues where Patek left off and has since earned its stripes as a wonderful expression of Patek’s skill as a watchmaker. Featuring a stunning cloisonné enamel dial center depicting a map of the Earth, and a new 18kt yellow gold case, the ref. 5231J is an incredible reflection of what makes Patek Philippe timepieces so special. From its wonderful movement, to its stunning craftmanship, the ref. 5231J certainly holds no punches, wouldn’t you agree?
