PATEK PHILIPPE Heure Universelle

Introduced in 2000, this exceptional mechanical watch from PATEK PHILIPPE is equipped with an innovative Universal Time complication that simultaneously displays local time and the time in the world’s 24 time zones. Fitted with an original mechanism with two patents registered, it has the double advantage of being user-friendly and easy to read. The dial comprises two disks, one for the names of 24 cities, the other for 24 hours with a day and night indicator. The engine-turned opaline inner dial boasts yellow gold applique hour markers.

The 18 carat yellow gold case, which is fitted sapphire crystal case back, is water-resistant to 25 m.
