After available in rose, yellow and white gold, the Patek Philippe world time platinum 5130p replica watches World Time watch with cloisonné dial is now only available in platinum, using a platinum bracelet to match. The platinum World Time a lot of watch and probably the very tangibly appealing of the numerous iterations of the model.
Size-wise it is identical to the golden models, at 39.5mm wide, but its inventory configuration is with a platinum bracelet. In contrast, the golden variations were largely sold with leather straps, using gold bracelets only available as special orders.
The World Time in platinum is strong and dense in the way just platinum watches are, with the weight enhanced by the”brick” style bracelet (that is generally the normal bracelet for complicated men’s watches, actually those created for Eric Clapton).
Surely double the weight of the gold versions on a strap, the platinum World Time is reassuringly a lot of watch. In fact, the 5131/1P feels like a uber-luxe travel watch, the form of timepiece for the passenger for whom first class is a downgrade from Netjets. It’s a fantastic feel.
Like all platinum case Patek Philippe world time moon replica watches it has a diamond set into the situation ring at six, using a cut-out on the end link to accommodate the gemstone.
The cloisonné dial centre depicts a world map as seen in the North Pole, which is essentially the Northern Hemisphere. Executed in browns, blue and green, the map is stylised with shaped gold cable forming the coasts of Canada and Russia. The muted colours of the cloisonné matches the whiteness of the case and bracelet nicely.
The colors of the continents, however, cast a halo to the blue of the sea, perhaps to represent the rocky waters around the coasts. This was not true for its yellowish gold World Time, or the classic cloisonné World Times, though it was about the white and rose gold versions.
The rest of the dial is equal to the golden ref. 5131s, together with the cities monitor and 24-hour ring on different discs, both finished with the same radial brushing but completed in different colors. It’s not the most simple or legible kind of travel watch, but it is definitely the most romantic. The Louis Cottier-style world time for some reason conveys a bygone era of traveling, believe steamships and railroads, over the GMT-style.
But perhaps of more interest to potential buyers of this watch is that fact that the platinum Planet Time might just be the last of the ref. 5131s. The guilloche dial World Times was replaced with the ref. 5531R sports a different case and dial style. If it’s a final hurrah, the ref. 5131 is moving out, slowly, in style.
