    With Patek Philippe Certificate of Origin dated 19 May 2007, original sales tag and World Time operating instructions booklet.

    Ref. 5130 was launched in 2006 and replaced ref. 5110, in production since 2000. Its classic Calatrava style features a larger diameter of 39.5 mm. as opposed to the 37 mm. of its predecessor. The new size allowed broadening the width of the exterior rotating disc showing the 24 time zones, thus rendering the names of the 24 world cities even more legible.

    Much inspired by the celebrated reference 1415, Patek Philippe's first World Time watch introduced in the 1930s, the dial is decorated with a new guilloché sunburst pattern, the distinctive hour markers give the watch a dynamic, contemporary look. The ring-shaped hour hand is also reminiscent of the firm's historic World Time watches, symbolizing the globe and reserved exclusively for this type of timepiece.
