Patek Philippe 5110G World Time Luxury Watch Review

http://www.thewatchbox.com Patek Philippe launched the era of the world time watch with its 1939 model 1415 HU. In 2000, Patek welcomed the 21st century with a new 24-time zone offering, the reference 5110 World Time. Produced from 2000 to 2006, the 37.5mm 5110G is the image of classical Patek Philippe complicated elegance. Thin, tapered, gold, and complicated, this Geneva Seal Patek already enjoys collector recognition as a collectible reference. This Patek Philippe 5110G World Time features the original innovations, the 24-hour chapter ring and 24-city reference ring. Each city represents one of the time zones of the globe, and the 24-hour chapter ring rotates counter-clockwise to track the hour in each locality. Moreover, the hour ring features diurnal and nocturnal indication for each region thanks to silver and blue shading. By setting your local time on the hands and aligning one's present location (reference city) with the index at 12 o'clock, it is possible to keep track of the time and day/night status of any locality on the globe. But Patek Philippe adds another innovation. Using the pusher at 10:30, the 5110G advances the current time zone and local hour (center hands times). By advancing from Miami (GMT -5) to London (GMT) on the reference ring, the watch advances the center hours to match. In other words, five clicks changes your city, your day/night status, and your time of day from 12:00pm to 5:00pm when flying from JFK to Heathrow... and the rest of the world falls into line. This Patek Philippe 5110G World Time is available from thewatchbox.com in outstanding condition with full Patek Philippe factory boxes, papers, and technical manuals. Video and content by Tim Mosso.
