This is a 950 platinum Patek Philippe World Time with Enamel Cloisonne Dial 5131/1P-001. It has an integrated five-link 950 platinum bracelet with a double deployant clasp and a scratch resistant sapphire crystal with anti-glare coatings. There is a protected winding crown, and a rectangular push button at 10 o'clock on the left-side case band that activates the 24-hour GMT chapter ring, switching from one time zone to another. Each time it is pressed, the hour hand advances one hour while the city ring and 24-hour ring rotate counter-clockwise by one hour - equivalent to one time zone. Pressing the button 24 times will produce a trip around the world, with a return to the original departure time. The local time, indicated by the hour and minute hands, refers to the location on the city disk that lines up with 12 o'clock. There is a screw-down exhibition case back, and the 39.5mm diameter solid three-body case, curved lugs, and angled flat bezel engraved with "PATEK PHILIPPE – GENEVE," are polished/brushed. The dial is hand painted enamel cloisonné depicting the North Pole and Arctic Circle, which only two artists at Patek Philippe are qualified to produce. There is a ring-shaped hour hand and dagger minute hand, with a night/day delineated 24-hour chapter ring. Around the perimeter are the 24 cities and time zones on a silver reserve. It's water resistant to 25 meters/85 feet, and it has a 48-hour power reserve at full wind. The 10mm thick case, dial, and movement are all signed. This Patek Philippe World Time with Enamel Cloisonne Dial 5131/1P-001 has a mechanical automatic self-winding Patek Philippe 240 HU movement that's rhodium-plated, with fausses cotes embellishment. It's stamped with the Seal of Geneva quality mark, and it's constructed with 33 jewels, 239 components, a Gyromax balance wheel that's adjusted to temperature, isochronism, and 5 positions, a self-compensating Breguet flat balance spring, and a 22K gold off-center mini-rotor that oscillates at 21,600 vph (3 Hz). The Patek Philippe World Time with Enamel Cloisonne Dial 5131/1P-001 was introduced a Basel Fair in 2017. The World Time system is based on master horologist Louis Cottier’s 1930’s mechanism for exhibiting every time zone on the planet.

I have been dealing with European Watch Company for over ten years, and have purchased several wrist watches, including IWC, Patek Philippe, Rolex, and Jaeger-LeCoultre. They were not only fairly priced but arrived in like-new condition, fully warranted by European Watch Company. This company has an attentive, knowledgeable staff, a large inventory, and is a genuine pleasure to deal with.
Just completed my 7th transaction with EWC and for the 7th time the transaction was smooth, flawless and quick. Joshua is quick to respond to any e-mails and answer any questions. Ashley knows how to complete the necessary paperwork to avoid any delays at Customs as I am located in Canada and all paperwork needs to be completed perfectly which she is an expert at. You only want to deal with the best and the team at EWC is the best. There is a Yiddish word to describe the people at EWC and that word is mensches which translates to people of integrity and honour.
After a lengthy search I located the Patek Philippe I desired at EWC, but the decision to make a high dollar purchase over the internet was a difficult one. Through numerous emails with Justin and looking at reviews of EWC I made the decision to proceed and I am now ECSTATIC. The watch is exactly as described and pictured. It was perfectly packaged and shipped FedEx overnight. My watch collection now includes the watch I have been seeking for over a year.In summary, you can deal with the EWC staff with confidence. They are professional, honest and you will receive a quality watch which will put a smile on your face.
I live in San Francisco but the EWC website is the first place I check once I get an impulse for a particular watch. EWC's website is cozy and feels like home. I enjoy the photos, presentation, description and historical notes of each item and really like their next day delivery, so I stay loyal to them. Sometimes I must wait awhile for a watch to become available but can usually find anything I want. Then there are the watches you never knew you wanted until you see them here.
Dear EWC, I have just completed my very first purchase with your company: a mint Lange Datograph. Robert was extremely help throughout the process with the item delivered nicely packed to my Hong Kong address within days. The condition of the watch was absolutely mint as described and has exceeded my expectations, even under a loupe! I will be a return customer in no time. Well done!
