Patek Philippe presents a new World Time Flyback Chronograph model featuring a platinum case, green dial and a matching alligator strap.
Inspired by a one-of-a-kind model from 1940, Reference 5930 combines two functions: a self-winding flyback chronograph and World Time – an iconic complication in the history and collections of the Manufacture. This model was launched in 2016 in a white gold version with a blue dial and matching strap.
In the new platinum version, the names of the cities are printed in green on the corresponding disk. The green dial center highlights a circular hand-guilloched circular pattern. This color is picked up at 6 o’clock on the snailed 30-minute counter. The applied hour-markers and the faceted Dauphine-type hands in white gold are highlighted by a luminescent coating ensuring good legibility in all circumstances.
The entirely hand-polished platinum case is set with a diamond at 6 o’clock. It features the “wing-type” lugs typical of 1940s-1950s World Time watches.
As caliber CH 28-520 HU is equipped with a column wheel and the modern disk-type vertical clutch, the central chronograph hand can also be used as a permanent (running) seconds display – thus ensuring minimal wear and tear and without affecting the movement accuracy or power reserve.
The 4 o’clock pusher enables instant restarting of a timing operation when the central hand is already performing an operation (“flyback” function) or is being used as a permanent (running) seconds display.
The World Time function simultaneously displays the time in 24 time zones. When changing time zones, an exclusive patented mechanism enables correction of all displays by pressing the 10 o’clock pusher, without affecting the accuracy of the movement.
The new Reference 5930P-001 is worn on a shiny bottle green alligator strap with a platinum fold-over clasp.
