Its impressively intricate design combines an almanac and travel time functions into one, displaying the date corresponding to local time. To that end, it uses the local hour wheel to drive the calendar, all housed in a 41mm 18-karat white gold case, crafted in the familiar circular style of the popular Calatrava timepieces. The charcoal grey dial features a grained structure and visible Arabic numerals. The top of the dial displays the day and date functions, while the bottom shows local time and home time, with day and night indicators.

Patek Philippe World Time 5231J Watch

The groundbreaking world timepiece updated in 2019, the fake Patek Philippe World Time Reference. The 5231J is an almost impossible piece of horological art to buy.

Patek Philippe World Time Reference. New for 2019, the 5231J sits alongside the existing 5231, with a platinum case and matching platinum rice bead bracelet, defining the pinnacle of understated decadence. The 5231J features a yellow gold case of 38.5mm wide and 10.23mm high, slightly smaller than the 39.5mm wide 5231. This is the same case on the 5230 World Chronograph, which is easier to work with because their central dial has a finer guilloche pattern than the enamel. The smaller 38.5mm wide case is preferable, though, as it lacks the inscription “Patek Philippe” on the bezel at 12 o’clock and “Genève” at 6 o’clock. I just don’t think contemporary tastes gravitate towards bezel engraving (or well-designed fonts, for that matter).

Several people have correctly pointed out how 5231J is reminiscent of an extremely rare Ref. 2523, introduced in the mid-1950s, perhaps a Patek Philippe World Time watch. Notably, the winglet lugs and polished flat bezel you’ll see on this case were introduced in 2016 with the 5230 World Chronograph. This is a big year for world time watches due to changes in global governments such as Moscow. UTC+4 to UTC+3 and a global shift in power resulted in a new city in one time zone (Dubai replacing Riyadh is one of them). prices of PP watches

Enamel dial
The 5231J features a cloisonné enamel astronomical sphere in the center of the dial. Cloisonne is one of the four enamel processes used by Patek Philippe. The process involves taking a thin gold wire and bending it into the shape of the intended design. The wires are then fastened to the base plate coated with an enamel layer. After the cells formed from the wire are filled with enamel, the process then involves multiple firings, depending on the specific color and effect they are trying to achieve.

The enamel center depicts Europe, Africa and the Americas with a range of greens, browns and yellows, as well as blue representing water. When you see it up close and personal, it’s definitely a work of art. In the center of the enamel dial are (rather short) circular hour and toffee hands in 18k yellow gold. As you might guess, using short, polished gold hands on such a rich enamel background hinders legibility. I’d say it’s an unfortunate side effect inherent in this watch, but I wouldn’t argue with anyone who thinks the circular hour hand is an unforced error.

world time function
Along the outer ring are the names of 24 cities, each representing a time zone. At 10 o’clock, you’ll see the pushers move the time forward an hour when engaged (the minute hand is unaffected), as well as the city and 24-hour rings. The red arrow at the 12 o’clock position will point to the city corresponding to your time zone. Granted, you don’t get the precision increments that would allow a second time zone indicator of 30 or 45 minutes (there are 37 time zones around the world when you consider those), but the ease and elegance of the operation here is world-class. swiss copy Patek

Let’s not kid ourselves: a Patek Philippe World Time watch is one of those things that only Logan Roy from Succession doesn’t get knocked down — though perhaps he’ll be more impressed, “It tells you how rich you are at 24 in a time zone, Instead of licking the boots of future son-in-law Tom Wambsgans’ surprisingly cringe-worthy line, “It’s pretty accurate in telling you how rich you are,” when presenting the Patek Philippe.

The 5231J uses a Calibre 240 HU (for all Globeheads, that’s the Heure Universelle), which consists of 239 parts, including a 22k gold rotor, and the 240 HU has a power reserve of 48 hours. What’s really remarkable about the 240 HU is that it’s extremely thin, only 3.88mm thick, which is achieved through a patented design that allows the winding rotor to be integrated with the bridge plate. By comparison, the Vacheron Constantin Calibre 2460 WT (there are several, including the Overseas World Time 7700V) is 7.55mm thick and the Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 772 (Geophysical Time) is 7.13mm thick. As for the Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra WorldTimer, I’m not quite sure about the thickness of the movement, but I know the case is 15.5mm thick.

Here is where the inheritance begins: Patek Philippe Calatrava—Ref. 5196 and 5227

“No one really owns Patek Philippe cheap, it’s just for the next generation to keep.” Patek Philippe is determined to create treasures dreamed by generations for the insightful, so the passion for mechanical watchmaking technology has always been the same, and the continuous pursuit of innovation and creation, in order to protect The proud tradition of “excellent quality, ingenuity and originality” established since its founding in 1839. This belief is particularly evident in the Calatrava series, which has not stopped for 80 years. For all collectors who want to enter the field of top watch and start their own family heritage, the Patek Philippe Calatrava series is definitely the best choice.

The Bauhaus, which appeared in the 1920s and 1930s and established the school of modernist design and architecture, embraced a basic idea that “function determines form”. Patek Philippe deeply agreed with this, and based on this, launched the Calatrava watch series in 1932. The round case contains a simple and precise movement, and the fluent surface is only loyal to the function of “time display”. Therefore, its surface is completely free of unnecessary superfluous elements, so as not to distract attention and allow people to concentrate on reading time. The artistic simplicity of simplicity is evident in Calatrava, which is still the source of inspiration for many watch designs today. The Calatrava series not only established the Taishan status of the round watch, but also became the famous and irreplaceable classic legend of Patek Philippe.

After nearly 80 years of development and evolution, today’s Calatrava has developed into a complete collection of watches with various complications. However, during the development of Calatrava, Patek Philippe not only focused on improving the movement structure and adding various complications, but also focused on highlighting the Bauhaus style of the antique Calatrava cheap watches. Therefore, the Calatarva style with only hours, minutes, seconds or hours, minutes and seconds can be said to be the most complete preservation of the classical Calatrava that is not sloppy, not icing on the cake, restrained and simple but presents the perfect design concept, so not only always It is Patek Philippe’s best-selling watch, and it is the best choice for collectors who have just entered the field of top-level watches and start their own generational inheritance.

Eighty years after its inception, today’s Calatrava has developed into a complete watch collection with various complications, pictured here is the Calatrava Pilot’s Dual Time Watch Ref. 5524G.

The classic image of the Calatrava collection has already been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and the variety of complications that showcase Patek Philippe’s amazing craftsmanship should not require us to dwell on it. Therefore, we will only focus on the simplest and purest Calatrava styles, and take readers to appreciate the elegance of the Calatrava series.

Calatrava Ref. 5196

First released in 2004, the Calatrava 5196 is arguably the most classic and longest-running model of Patek Philippe’s current models. Even though it has been in existence for seventeen years, it still exudes a simple and irresistible appeal. Its design not only faithfully reproduces the functions of the hours, minutes and small seconds of the Reference 96, but also has an elegant and simple round case, a simple and simple milky white or silver-gray dial, a flat bezel and a long, curved, and connected case. The integrated lugs and other design elements have been preserved almost perfectly, only the diameter of the watch has been increased to the still slender 37 mm. This series is reported to have been discontinued this year (2022), and the new series to replace is yet to be announced.

Calatrava 5196R-001
18K rose gold case, 37 mm diameter, hours, minutes, small seconds, 215 PS hand-wound movement, at least 44 hours power reserve, Patek Philippe stamp, sapphire crystal and case back, water-resistant to 30 meters, alligator leather bring.

Calatrava 5196 is powered by the historic and prestigious 215 PS hand-wound movement, only 2.55 mm thick, with an excellent Gyromax® balance and Spiromax® balance spring, and bearing the Patek Philippe seal. Calatrava’s famous “Nail de Paris” model 3919 is also equipped with this movement, and its traditional and classical graceful posture perfectly echoes the Reference 96’s 12-120 hand-wound movement.

Calatrava Ref. 5227

As for the Calatrava 5227, it has a unique historical significance in the Calatrava series, because it is one of the very few special Calatrava watch models in Patek Philippe’s current models known as the Officer’s Watch or the Officer’s Watch. Patek Philippe’s founder, Antoine Patek, was originally a Polish nobleman who rose to lead the fight against the Russian invasion.

Calatrava Ref.5227 is a few of Patek Philippe’s “officer’s watch” style watches. The ancient round pot-shaped case is a special officer-style case for officers during the war. It also has a flip-up metal back cover. .

Among the many works of Patek Philippe, the one that best demonstrates the founder’s military style is the “officer’s watch” inspired by the pocket watches used in ancient wars. These special models have many features that are quite different from other Calatrava: the straight lugs with rounded ends and the straps fixed with turnlock screws are all military watches; the ancient round pot-shaped case is even more warlike In addition to the sapphire crystal case back, many officers’ watch styles also have a flip-up metal back cover, which is also a function of protecting the surface of military watches inherited from the past. Patek Philippe’s current officer watch models are very rare, with only a few remaining models such as the Calatrava 5227 and the Grand Complications 5160/500G.

Calatrava 5227 is equipped with a 18K gold case with a diameter of 39 mm and a thickness of only 9.24 mm, but it integrates two parts, a sapphire crystal case back and a hinged protective cover. The flange of the protective cover is extremely small. When worn on the hand, the hinge connected to the case is completely invisible, which shows the exquisite craftsmanship of Patek Philippe. The watch is equipped with a 324 S C self-winding movement with a 21K gold central automatic disc, a Gyromax® balance wheel, and a Spiromax® balance spring. cheap men watches
