The small seconds display with a semi-dial design is set at 6 o’clock to avoid blocking the day of the week function and thus ensure that the wearer can clearly read the time.

Reinventing The Contemporary Look Of The World Time Watch: Patek Philippe 5230g. 5230r World Time Watch
Patek Philippe cooperated with Geneva watchmaker Louis Cottier to develop the famous world time zone watch mechanism Heure Universelle as early as the 1930s. Patek Philippe obtained this patent in 1959. The design of Heure Universelle is a central small dial with the hour and minute hands indicating the local time. In addition, the outer ring or dial of the watch is engraved with the names of different time zones, countries and cities in the world. The inner ring is equipped with a 24-hour rotation The time in the world circle shows the time in different world time zones at the same time. Until now, Patek Philippe’s world time watch still uses this excellent design.
Since the launch of the previous generation of World Time watch models 5130 and 5131 more than ten years ago, the political and economic situation in the world has changed significantly. In response to the change of the representative cities of the time zone and the change of the time zones of the representative cities, Patek Philippe launched the new 5230 World Time Watches and designs also change at the same time, keeping pace with the times.
Patek Philippe Ref. 605 HU World Time Pocket Watch with the Louis Cottier Heure Universelle (1940, 1950s)
For people in the ancient agricultural era, the concept of time was nothing more than sunrise and sunset. Even if John Harrison (1693-1776) invented the extremely accurate nautical clock in the 18th century, it solved the problem of positioning longitude in navigation, and opened the era of adventure in which the imperial navy and businessmen sailed in different time zones. The huge impact came as late as the 19th century when railway transportation prevailed. Under the initiative of Sir Sanford Fleming, the International Meridian Conference held in Washington, USA in 1884 finally officially divided the world into 24 time zones. Since then, watch brands have launched fierce competition, the first to develop watches that can display time in dual or multiple time zones. Until 1935, Patek Philippe finally collaborated with the famous independent watchmaker in Geneva, Louis Cottier (1894-1966), to develop the famous world time zone watch mechanism Heure Universelle, and Patek Philippe obtained this patent in 1959.
Many Patek Philippe World Time watches made from the 1930s to the 1960s later hit sky-high prices at major auctions.

Contemporary classics-Patek Philippe World Time Watch
These Patek Philippe world time watches made from the 1930s to the 1960s have subsequently set great prices in major auctions. In 2000, Patek Philippe launched the World Time watch again, and greatly improved its performance, allowing users to adjust all the watch’s displays at the same time when the time zone is changed, without affecting the accuracy of the movement, laying the brand in the world time wristwatch. The watch continues to lead the top position.

In 2006, Patek Philippe launched the 5130 world time zone watch with a 37 diameter increased to 39.5 mm and a special ring-shaped hour hand similar to antique watches. Its special shape makes it exude a unique charm. In 2008, Ref.5131 with Cloisonné faceplate was launched, and the dream combination satisfied the aspirations of many connoisseurs.
New design responds to new changes in world time zones
Dividing the world into twenty-four time zones every fifteen degrees of the meridian may seem intuitive and natural, but it involves complex political considerations. In the past ten years, the representative cities of some time zones have been changed, such as replacing Riyadh with Dubai, Noumea with Brisbane, etc .; while Moscow used to be in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) +4, it is now being used by Russia Adjusted and moved towards Western Europe for nearly an hour, turning into the UTC + 3 zone. The changing actual needs made Patek Philippe decide to launch a new style of World Time watch, while also changing its appearance design, adding contemporary style and distinctive personality.
