A fine, limited, self-winding, 18k pink-gold worldtime with enamel dial. Signed dial, case and movement.

Released at Basel World in 2008 the Patek Philippe world-time with cloisonne dial Ref.5131 was promoted as much as a work of art as it was for any technical achievement. Each dial is hand made by an artisan trained in enameling and requires both artistic and chemical skills to mix the enamel correctly. Due to the lengthy process, high failure rate and lack of skilled artisans, Patek Philippe announced only a small number of the Ref.5131 would be available each year.
Similarities can instantly be drawn to the Patek Philippe world-time references of the 1940’s and 50’s with enamel dials that influenced the 5131 such as the Ref.2523
